Hey Lads,

 

 

Noticed that Supercheap have a sepecial on there 9500Lb (4500kg) Winch. Anyone on here own one or heard anything about them? I've been half considering getting one because at the moment they are 40% off so are $397 each. But yeah it they are a POS won't waste my time.

 

Cheers Joe.

provided the warranty checks out

 

supercrap are normally pretty good with their warrantees!

 

when does the special end?

 

9500LBS is too small for a patrol daimonson

 

you need a 12,000lbs especially if its chinese

the weight of your car is ontop of the forces being applied by being stuck. so think about how hard u have to pull your leg out of mud, now try with a 2.8t car. forces be huge

9500 lb is only about 4.2 T also, which when you take in the suction of mud would be not much in comparison

those ropes are amazingly strong, they are made from a mix of nylon/polymers i believe. similar to what snatch straps are made from

the ropes are 11ty better

 

if they snap they dont cut you in half

 

worth about $360 for a winch sized length of it too

 

f**k it im getting a chinese one...my car is only 850kgs and heaps of people have had good runs with the china ones

 

$1500 on a warn is fuken rediculous

Speaking of winches, anyone ever seen a winch attached from the bull bar over the roof to the tow bar then switched on :lol: Sure f**ks shit up

 

they seem to like the china winches in that thread....f**k if these dudes are using 9500's on hiluxes then there is no way my car is going to have a drama

 

:D

 

I also read that and instantly thought "I am never parking my car in a city backstreet on a satruday night"
