Buy a winch that will work every time. Buy a pulldozer. Hand built in California.

My pulldozer is yet to let me down.

i know this is not one of your choices but i would look into next gen winch. super nice. the guys that run next gen are super cool. i would say they have the best winch on the market

I saw a next gen demo. the winches broke :/

I am a fan of Pulldozers. Reliable, easy to use, and sturdy.

I've done a handfull of rail jams and winch events, the most reliable winch i've used so far is the pulldozer.

svt600 02-14-2010 12:10 PM

out of those 2 choices get the pulldozer!! Ridiculous winches are way way over priced... <BR> <BR>or you could just build one!!

bendow 02-15-2010 6:31 AM

yea! pay hundreds more and get an winch with half the power! uhhhhh? lol

wakemitch 02-15-2010 6:31 PM

Pulldozer all day! Super easy to get them to the spot and set them up and Ive never had any problems. Ive used lots of winches and the pulldozer is the most reliable. <BR> <BR>11hp is a waste imo. heavy

bendow 02-15-2010 6:39 PM

spending a ton of money on a 6.5 hp winch and not have the capability of deep water starts is a waste IMO

check out pulldozer.com not to brag but the pics of his 3rd gen. pulldozer is mine! ive had the 8hp since last April, its been all across the state, to the beach, powell, pulled into the lake, and is still running strong!(after heavy cleaning of the engine)

kaesen 02-17-2010 3:26 PM

pulldozer for sure! <BR>built by a guy who knows whats up.

02-17-2010 5:44 PM

Well looks like ridiculous is out of the picture, thanks for all the input, Looks like all be goin with the pulldozer all be sure to throw some pics up, thanks again everybody!!

wakemitch 02-17-2010 9:00 PM

Benjamin, most people go with the 8hp now. I can deep water start with a 5hp winch with no vest and a wakeskate that barely floats me, you just need to know how to get up. Its not a boat.

bendow 02-18-2010 4:42 AM

Mitch, I couldn't see a Naval ship pulling your fat @$$ out of the water! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

durty_curt 02-18-2010 1:31 PM

hahaha!yeah go with the 8hp, can keep you goin at 25 mph 1500ft out, any rider/friend aNy SiZe; you wont have to worry about getting them out of the water and enough speed to bust those air rolls!

02-19-2010 1:58 AM

I'm sure Yankmeister will guarantee their product. <BR> <BR>Give Logan a call, the number is on the website above. They're good guys...and all riders so I'm confident they would cover any issues you may have. If you look at the build design they're built tough
