One of the most overlooked but critical accessories that UTV owners use on their vehicles is a quality power winch. The range of winches is wide and varies greatly in price, power and quality, and then you have to find the right mount for both your winch and your vehicle. The following are a few of the best winches that we’ve used to fit your Commander, or whatever UTV you drive.
Mile Marker has made winches for off-road vehicles long before the term UTV was coined. Their MILE MARKER PE4500 12V Winch offers an impressive 4500 lb capacity. The winch’s 1.9 HP Permanent Magnet Motor Rugged planetary gear sets the automatic load holding brake. A Galvanized Roller Fairlead with 80 feet of galvanized aircraft cable is virutally unbreakable. FRP Sheathing on Power Cables and an Integrated Kill Switch rounds out the versatile package. The PE 4500 is an excellent utility recovery tool that serves large side by side units just as well as heavy utility trailers. This winch has been updated with an integrated solenoid design for extended duty cycle, an integrated kill switch, and fully illuminated controls.
Superwinch is known for their winches and hundreds of other off-road product lines that they’ve manufactured since World War II. Their TERRA CA 35 SR was named as CA Quads choice for the best 3500lb synthetic rope equipped ATV winch in the marketplace! A heavy duty permanent magnet motor with a large diameter wire within the winding and sealed bearings at both ends of the motor has the highest horsepower/torque and lowest amperage draw in the industry. This winch pulls more weight longer and faster in mud and water. It also puts the lowest amount of drain on the battery of any winch. The Superwinch synthetic ropes are genuine AmSteel-Blue™ with Samthane™. This special coating helps resist abrasion with AmSteel-Blue™ made from genuine Dyneema¨ SK-75 HMPE fiber, the world’s strongest fiber.
