    This winch is absolutely amazing! I buried a 9000 lb. track loader deep in the timber and near a creek where the water table was higher than I expected. I spent almost 2 weeks trying to dig and pull it out but ultimately, it sank even deeper. One side of the loader was 3 ft. deep and below the track. I hooked this winch to a hitch receiver in the rear of my truck and pulled it out effortlessly from 120 ft. above a gully! My only critique is the flimsy mount for the control box. What a monster!

    Using this winch at work to pull delivery trucks out when getting stuck in the Western New York winter. Had a 12000lb winch that broke. This one should do the job!

    I have burned up two 10,000lb winches. I Google for a bigger winch. Found the XRC 17.5 winch on Autoanything.com. Anthony was such a big help. We have installed the winch and it works like a charm. Thinking about ordering a second one.
