As I asked yesterday.
How many moving plastic parts are inside of a Viper winch vs say a Warn?
Viper's price is better.
I have seen several 4,500lbs ones around here, but Warn seems to be the standard others are judged against. Viper is gaining market share though.
Is the power drawn per lbs of pulling power similar or?
Viper, I believe, has no plastic parts at all unlike the warn wench. Viper will back there warranty unlike warn and you can't beat the price. They pull just as hard if not harder, but just don't move as fast. I use Viper and venom wenchs, both have done real well for me. Also, my dealer buddy cut his warn product line and only sales viper now, due warns durability/warranty issues.
