Haven't been able to really test it out yet but the little bit I have used it I can say without a doubt it is a great winch.

Very solid, and heavy duty, but it is not the proper size for the Hitch Receiver. It is a bit smaller than it should be, so it is a sloppy fit, and wiggles / rattles around more that it should. I wrapped some black electrical tape around it on either side of the holes, and that helps, but it would be better if they made it the correct size in the first place.

Last Christmas, I got stuck and needed help getting out of a ditch. Several good Samaritans managed to get me and my truck out. If I had the tow strap at that time I would have been on my way much sooner. This tow strap is now part of my emergency equipment, which I would prefer not having to use. This is a sturdy strap that strong enough to get me out of almost any situation.
