We burned one up on our St. Vrain outing earlier this year 1/2 way through the day. If we didn't have two other name brand winches in the group we most likely would have spent the night out there. Don't get me wrong, I love HF for their throw down tools but I'd only mount a HF winch to a trailer.

Just stating my experience. $300 is cheap but it's also 1/2 way to a Craigslist "purchased but never used" Warn. Replacement brushes/parts from HF are nearly impossible to obtain, which sucks. It's always seems to be the brushes that go bad with my HF electrical stuff.

So it was the Badlands brand that you guys fried? That's interesting... as Timm said there are tons of positive reviews on these. I haven't read every one of them though.. but shoot my only experience with a winch overheating and quitting was with a Warn M12k.

Not entirely sure that it was the badlands but it was definitely a HF
