Super winch
« on: Jan 19, 2017, 09:43:25 AM »
Does anyone have first had experience with the super winch tiger shark 9500? https://superwinchcompanystore.com/collections/superwinch-tiger-shark-series/products/superwinch-tiger-shark-9500-sr-12v-1595201-winch I haven't been able to find any bad reviews on it and it's what I am looking for. I want something with a syn line for around that price point. Warns xps 9500 is $1700 so that's out of the question. And I'm avoiding smitty built because a buddy had one that ended up shorting some how and catching the entire front end of his runner on fire while he was camping in the truck.

Synthetic line can be had for under $175 so don't really take that into consideration. Find a good warn with steel and then just buy the line separate. What do you need a 9500 for?

I suppose I need the 9500 for nothing. I could get away with an 8000 but there are id rather have it rated for over double what my rig weighs (not that I have directly weighed mine personally but most people have said 3700-4500 pending mods and whatnot) so I'll assume the high side of 4500 and double that is 9000 lbs. that was my logic on the 9500

Go with the 8000 and just buy a snatch block.

What about a used 8274. You can get that and synthetic line for around that price. It took a little waiting and looking every day on craigslist,  but I was able to score a good used one for 300.

I love my 8274s have quite a few. By far, hands down, without a doubt, and many other redundant ways of saying it... they are bad to the bone. Just ugly as sin

I love my 8274 but it only works for some. It requires a special type of mount and bumper that aren't made for Toyota pickups as far as I am aware.

I'd like to relocate the box under the hood. Kinda hard to do with the 8274....

That's easy if you change to an albright solenoid.

I have the Warn XPS 9500 on my 80 series. It's expensive, but an amazing tool. When used with a snatch block, it's unstoppable. The most I've used it was in an ice storm pulling SUVs out of ditches all over town. Guess i'm not wheeling the 80 hard enough (lockers, marlin gears, 37s - it goes anywhere)...

I have a OLD 1990s Supwerwinch S6000 for my 85 pickup.  Its small but well built. With a Snatchblock and pulling back to the vehicle there are no issues.  Sure it's not a new sexy 9500lb winch but i gets the job done.
