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

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.

out of those 2 choices get the pulldozer!! Ridiculous winches are way way over priced...

or you could just build one!!

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.

11hp is a waste imo. heavy

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

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.

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!

I'm sure Yankmeister will guarantee their product.

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
