THese things are going for $209 shipped right now off amazon. I have read good reviews and they have a higher pull rating than a warn. I dont see how a guy could go wrong?


Who has one and what is your feedback?

i got one last christmas for $189 shipped from amazon. works real good too! I've pulled out jeeps with it. i modified the warn mount to fit. Basically made some more holes in the plate. no probems to speak of and cant beat the price.

A winch is my next mod, might consider this one. You can pick up a a Viper Max with mounting plate for a few $'s more on eBay. I have buddies that run the Vipers with good results.

Superwinch Terra 45 on Rhino?

After reading this thread I asked for and got Terra 45 for Christmas with the synthetic rope.

Has anyone found a front mount that works for the rhino? I got one from cabelas that turns out to be too narrow for the fairland and faces the fairland towards ground. Do not want to fab one or mod this one.

Not real impressed with the "customer service" for Superwinch as the wrong bolt set was sent with the winch; they were closed the whole week after Christmas and finally got through to them Tuesday....

Also was not aware these are made in China......

Just asking before I pack it all up and ship back.

This pic was on my phone, not the best, but you get a general idea. Probably be a week before I get back out to my farm where the Rhino is at.

Superwinch is POS

I should have gone with my gut feeling and just sent the made in China winch back. Instead I made the mistake of installing it. Not only was the install a real PITA thanks to the very lacking manual but when I got it fully installed the winch would not work. Either the motor is no good or there is a broken wire somewhere inside. Anyway an sending back to Amazon for a refund. What a waste of time!

I would not recommend a Chinese Superwinch to my worst enemy. Customer Service is the worst and who wants a product you can not depend on when you need it? Especially a winch.

I am keeping the made in USA KFC mount with 2" receiver though as like the receiver up front and may at some point try to find a made in USA winch to put on.

How well do these hold up going under water. I want to order one. But I think I want a winch bumper that mounts it up by the hood. Any one make a bumper like that.

Haven't had any rope issues with mine so far. I do unroll it/ rinse it well and roll it back in after it's dry.
Thats a good idea thanks for the tip. I am sure I will use it a time or two buy sunday. I went and got a 6ft tree saver strap and large tractor shackle so I wont put as much strain on the winch rope. Went ahead and got a snatch block to keep in the rhino too cant hurt to have it.




This is mounted with the kc bottom plate and the front plate that cam with the winch. This install was pretty easy over all. I did have to get longer bolts to hold the winch to the plate. I mounted the remote lead to the warning plate in the center of the dash and the winch switch just below the warning plate closer to the driver.
