warn winch

warn has a new winch called Axon that has the contactor built in. That sounds so much easier to install. i may just sell my warn i removed from the rhino that i planned to put on the Viking. anyone try the new warn yet? https://www.warn.com/axon-winch

I am sure it is so overpriced that you could buy a bigger, just as good, if not better Viper or even a Tractor Supply winch for less than half the price.
Some people got more money than brains and buy high dollar overrated stuff like Bose speakers.

I have owned over 4 new winches and the water got to the two non warn brands . I prefer to stay with something I know that will work. as far as taking chances on one more brand I prefer not to. maybe in texas you don't get the rain like I do . my 2016 Polaris came stock with winch and that didn't leak but turned on by itself at random . are you related to the moderator?

I am a country boy ..... had winches all my life and had Two go out on me and BOTH were Warn ..... and I loaned another popular brand winch out and he broke it beyond repair.
I don't waste money on Warn winches, or Bose speakers.
I have a $180 4500 Tractor supply winch now and it has run every time I needed it for 4-5 years. (a little slower than Warn, but A LOT cheaper)
YES, we have water in Texas ..... LOTS of it right now LOL .... we are under flood warning ......
My Rhino is snorkeled and it is needed almost every ride.

The Warn on my 2004 Rhino had water intrusion that corroded everything. Replacement parts were expensive (if you could find them) so I bought another. Same story. When I called Warn they asked if I had ever had the winch under water (!?). I said of course, it's a freakin' ATV! I also said that I rarely go underwater and never for any amount of time. They said when you submerge the winch you should run the line out and back in to warm up the winch and drive out moisture. What?! Anyway, I bought a cheap lookalike and it works just fine.

There is no way to waterproof them, not even the high dollar ones.
