Runva winch

These winches are getting some good reviews in other ATV forums, I tried searching for them here and couildn't find anything, does anyone have one? One more question, the seller says they are a direct replacement for a Warn winch would I require a mounting bracket for my 2009 550 H1 of some kind or will it just bolt on ?

I haven't got one yet, but have talked with 3 separate people that own them and no negative comments. They all liked them better than Warn. For the money, can't go wrong. I talked with a supplier of these winches and he seemed to think that the winch would bolt right onto my 08 650 H1. I don't think you'll need any bracket or plate, but not 100% as I don't have one. Hope this helps, let us know if you get it.

That looks like a really nice winch. Just letting you know that you can get a promark(i think 3000lbs) winch with synthetic rope and hawse fairlead for around the same price on ebay.

The winch looks good quailty the snatch block and tree saver looks like they would work . The instuctions are terrible the manual is pretty much useless no wiring diagram, all the connections are marked on the componets with little stickers. The supplied 6mm bolts need to be thrown away, while installing the fairlead I snapped one off with a 3/8 socket with very little effort, I will pick up some new bolts to continue later.

The winch installed easy after replacing the bolts, I was able to mount the soliniod under the seat and will provide a place to store the plugin for the hand control. This is the quietest running winch I have ever heard, the controls allow the winch to be operated in both directions both from the handle bars and from the plugin handcontrol. I will have to wait for spring for a true test but for now it pulls me sitting on the quad with the brakes locked on across the yard with no effort, my first impression is it should work out to be a good buy.

And it just bolted right up after getting better bolts, matched right up?
