I think some of the results are biased but overall a good test.

My bad land winch works fine. I have used a couple of times with no issue. You think they could have got a replacement for the winches that didn't work so they could test them. Overall good read though

the badland winches had the best finish according to that test

 

I almost went with the Engo, but I forgot now what convinced me to go with Smittybilt

I went with the 12k engo and just used it today to pull an old stump.

That old test.  Warn paid to win that thing. Baised as hell to me.  Should have got replacements too. 

 

Know of a couple DOA Engos that people bought due to that test, but Engo has made good with both and each gets great performance from their Engo now.

THE EDGE, there is no honest way to explain it

 

because the only people who really know where it is

 

are the ones who have gone over...

The main reason I went with the engo vs other brand was because 5 friends who wheel all the time highly recommend them. They got in on a group buy and not one of them has had a bad thing to say about their winch. I scored my 12k for $300.00
