    You’re on the money mate!
    Reliability is key, nothing worse than loosing a beloved truck and or worse to a few somewhat dollars in the grand scale relative savings!
    Recovery gear by definition I believe needs to work safely at all times
    Stick around, @MudRunnerTD will help pimp your TJM :-)

    Just looked at getting a replacement for my Aldi winch. It runs great but the brake has never worked. I can get a TJM 9500 locally for $1300, but I am a bit concerned that water ingress might not be covered by the warranty.

    https://4x4earth.com/forum/index.php...max-etc.25959/

    Unless it has been updated since that was posted.

    The Aldi one I bought secondhand had already suffered water damage, but it only took a couple of hours to repair it. I also added a silicon seal, which works well.

    Has anyone used a cheaper winch in anger? What were the results?

    Just got off the phone with Sherpa, and their winches are covered for 5 years and it also covers water ingress.

    What was the Sherpa worth? I got the tjm 12000 pound fitted the other day, they did a pretty neat job, haven’t had a chance to use it yet. Comes with both the wired controller and wireless. Only thing that’s a bit annoying is that the isolator is under the bonnet, was hoping for a switch in the cab but it’s all good! I think the warranty is only two years though.

    Unfortunately can’t performance wise comment on our Sherpa as yet. Purchased a 17,000lb twin motor Mule for the back of a ute to hopefully help haul up dead drivetrain Landcruiser mates :-)
    Awaiting installation to come although can say its warranty written and truly excellent customer sales service queries throughout the buying process were impeccable

    Interesting that the dyneema slips on the spool enough to tear out fittings on a few winches that were tested.

    TJM winch

    Cheers Craigstar!
    I’d personally be more worried about the motors and gears on cheaper unsupported ones.
    Pretty sure IIRC bought one for a work ute being the very first original opening in Australia day ALdi’s and found it had absolutely no brake, seriously:-)
    EDIT: Killed a $250 then battery trying to hold a DX on a slope :-)
