viper atv/utv winches??

anyone here had any dealings with a viper winch? im about to sell the prelude, and im gonna buy a club car carryall 272 from where i work......and since its a "prerunner" golf cart....2 wheel drive/factory lift/locker rear diff.......im gonna get a winch for it. i've seen lots of reviews on the vipers, and all i've seen have been positive....plus.......they are alot cheaper than the warns, and seem built about the same.

here is what a carryall 272 looks like.......and im gonna mod mine for hunting and such, when i get it.

I have a Viper 3000lb winch on my 4-wheeler. Been on there for about 3 years now, and still works like a champ. Has defenitely seen some mud and water with no issues.

well hate to say it but my MX2500 is going back in, got stuck in about 4ft of snow a few weeks ago and had to pull really hard to the right, cable jumped off the spool and left me with a non working winch, took it apart and got the cable back on track and everything seemed fine untill last weekend when i went to use it again, it now pulls tight untill it gets a heavy load on it boggs down and then makes a loud pop and repeats, i called and they said to send it in, makes me mad but i'm hoping they fix this one or give me a new one and i'm problem free from here on out, idk if jumping the cable screwed something up or what but that's what i'm hopping happened, really sucks when they dont work how they should cause you're usually knee deep in something you dont wanna be in!

I have had the Vipermax 3000 on my Grizzly for nearly a year and have beat the hell out of the both and it's got me out of a lot of sticky situations and pulled out a lot of Honda's and Brute Force's and still works like a champ.

My gear boxes did fill with silt and water at one point. I know no winch is completely waterproof and mine had spent a lot of time underwater, so I couldn't really complain. I took it all apart and packed it with marine grease, haven't had any issues since.

I know A LOT of guys who run these on their quads and they have a very great reputation for reliability and great customer service.

I'm sorry HUNT had those issues, I haven't heard of many problems such as his.
