I have a Warn 2.5, Warn 2,000 and a Superwinch 1,500. So far I have had good luck with all of them.
Some people have not had good luck with Superwinch. The Warn 2,000 is kind of an obsolete model now. It was pretty much replaced by the 2.5. Some of the problems with them was the large dial type switch tends to burn out very easily. So far I have not had this problem. The other problem is it spools out under preasure. In other words, if you are winching up a steep hill and let off the switch, it will slowly spool back out because there is no break in it. For about $70 you can install a break which will cure this problem, but for that same extra $70 you can get the 2.5 which already has the break installed.
I don't have any other winches to compare to, but I would reccomend the Warn 2.5
i have a 2.5 Warn,and have yarded alot of bikes out with it,,,the 2.5 has plenty of power,and if you get too crazy with size,your just adding undue weight to you bike
if i ever have a problem with sliding while im trying to pull someone out,i take my tow rope,and hook it to a tree,and to the rear of my bike,,,,,if a tree isnt handy,just get someone to pull their bike nose to nose to yours,and just let the winch do the work,,,,,i have yet to have a bike i couldnt yard out with the 2.5 yet
I had the warn 2500 and it worked fine but for a little more on my current grizz I put on a warn 3.0 with remote and I wouldn't have it anyother way. I absolutely love it. It is heavy but I like the metal housing.
