So does that mean it wont hold a load on a hill etc. without a brake?

I don't think it should be a serious question for either of you. I know they have bottomless gunk in GA and MI. A lesser winch like the elec. MM would do fine for guys in the SW, but for anything else, why skimp?

A warn 12000 is better than a MM but is it worth twice the price, to me it was not. For the holing on a hill I have to experience but if was a 30 degree banking I would say to the bottom you go. If you were inside to hold your brakes it is fine, and the remote does make it inside even by mounting it on the passenger side.

Well, I think you've answered your own question, then. The M12k is selling for $970 right now. That's not too bad. Figure for the price difference, you're getting 25' more cable, true 12000# pulling power, AND A BRAKE.

Besides, $569 + $144 (for the snatch block you'll need) +$56 (for the line extension you'll need) = $769. That's only a $200 price difference... I guess that's what a brake would cost, eh? ;)

(A winch with no brake is pretty useless for lowering trucks down Guardrail, too)

Well you dont need a snatch block, and I hope you never pull out more that 50 feet of cable. The more cable out the weaker the line pull is. Use chain or heavy rope.

Yea I forgot to say if using a pulley. Oh well, most already knew of my incompetence.... more power less speed

Going to need a snatch block on that MM winch if it's going to be a competitive purchase with the Warn.... otherwise we might as well debate whether you should drop $1k on a Warn or $65 on a 2ton Powr-Pull hand winch from Home Depot. :D

I will say again the warn is better, but for 630.00 shipped to my door, I cant refuse that. I am satisfied with what I have.
