Looking to mount a winch on my Polaris 800 midsize ranger without forking over $$$$. What do you guys prefer? I primarily deer hunt now so it will likely never be submerged (at least I don't plan on it). Also what size should I get for a 1100lb machine?

Any experience with the cheap chinese Badlands winches from Harbor Freight? I've read some decent reviews on them on different forums. I was also looking into the Superwinch but I believe they are Chinese made as well as several other companies. Thoughts?

I have the cheap one from HF, and it has not let me down. I also have the wireless module, and it also works flawlessly. I would buy another before I would get a warn.

it really does not matter as long as the winch has a "brake" to keep the spool locked
