Just got this Bad@ss warn winch for $25 at the junkyard

Me and a buddy of mine were out wheeling the other day and decided to go stop by one of the local junkyards and i guess we got there at the perfect time because there was a fresh 1987 chevy pickup that wasnt touched at all with this monster winch on it. I tried a battery in the junkyard and it would only real in. I figured something was locked up from sitting so long or the motor was messed up. Told the guy it was broke gave it to me for 25 bucks i took it home and was messing with the spur gear and i guess it free'd something up. Thing works like a champ now! Almost took my hand off, it reals in so dang quick. It looks like the M8274-50 model but looks like the older design the plug is in the middle of the W. Was wondering if anyone had any info about it? Wanted to know if its worth mounting on my truck or if its a old piece of junk?

heres a link to the new style winch so u can see what im talking about

good find man....

if its only rated to 8k i would not put it on your truck... yes your truck may only weight around 8k... but not when its stuck... the pulling force woudl have to be far greater....

i have a 12k winch on my truck and i wish i would of gone for the 16.5k because sometimes it doesnt feel strong enough to pull me or someone else out

the military usues a ton of snatch blocks and uses man power to un stuck their stuf. for every time you run back and forth you double the pulling power and decrease your lione speed in half. problem is you will need a ton of cable to run several snatch blocks.
