Tusk winch review

1. Tusk 3500 lb Winch Review

This winch comes with a 730-watt motor and a good pulling capacity of 3500lb. This winch has enough pulling capacity to pull your vehicle, especially Polaris RZR XP 1000, 900 Trail, XP Turbo, S 900, 900 XC series.

Besides, this winch offers a 50 ft long heavy synthetic rope. If you are a synthetic rope fan, then this winch is for you. Moreover, you will get a bump stop with this winch. This bump stop will extend the lifetime of your winch rope. The mounting plate that comes along the winch will allow you easy installation and will add the extra ability to recover.

However, the water-resistant feature of this winch will allow you to continue the winching operation even in a tough condition. After all, you will have a good winching operation with this winch.

  • Features 50 ft long heavy synthetic rope and a mounting plate
  • Comes with Bump Stop

2. Tusk 2500 lb  Winch Review

This is another winch from tusk. This winch comes to you with a 2500lb pulling capacity and a 600 watt motor. With this pulling capacity along with a heavy motor, this winch will help to get your ATV recovered easily.

Besides, this winch offers a 50 ft long heavy steel cable along with a roller fairlead. The heavy high quality steel cable will assist you while pulling your ATV and the roller fairlead will guide the steel cable into the drum.

Moreover, the waterproof protection of this winch will allow you to continue the winching operation under the water. You will also get the mounting hardware and wiring kits with this winch.

Remember this winch requires a specific mount plate. You need to buy it separately. Although most brand mount plates will fit.

  • Offers waterproof protection
  • Comes with a 50 ft long heavy steel cable along with a roller fairlead
  • Mounting hardware and wiring included.

Verdict

I tried to mention everything about these winches. After reading this review, I believe now you are able to make the right decision. If you are looking for a winch for your Polaris RZR XP 1000, 900 Trail, XP Turbo, S 900, 900 XC series and you are not fond of remote controlling systems, then my recommendation will be going for the first winch. On the other hand, if you are looking for a winch for your ATV, then you can pick the second winch.

Caution

  • Always remember to put a thick hand glove before winching operation.
  • Be careful while winching and keep a safe distance because this winch does not offer a remote control system.
