winch for trx250?


Recommended Posts

i was wondering if a small winch would work on our 2008 trx250ex. it has a 123 watt alternator, not sure on the battery size but it has a 9 in the battery type, its double the size of the one on my bike. would this power a small winch? do they make any that this quad would power while its running? any info would help!

yeah i figured the engine would always have to be running, with lights off. im not sure how much reserve power it has. the ratchet winch looked cool, and i could see that it would be a cinch to mount, it has a curved mounting bracket. too bad it says its out of stock and they dont know when its coming back

Harbor Freight has a bunch of winches that would work. Just go to the web page and search for winch. You might have to fab a bracket for some of them but some are made for atv's and come with a bracket of some kind. They also have the manual one that was on amazon: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=95541

Try elsewhere. Lots of places carry them. Got mine from Rocky Mountain MC/ATV.
