Have you looked in the northern catalog or at harbor freight?  They usually have some cheap ones that do an ok job.

I bought one on ebay for $100 and  is rated at 8000lbs.  Totalcloseout was the company selling it.  They had several at the time.  This one was from Harborfreight originally.  My plan is to hook it to a 6hp gas engine so as not to worry about cycle times.  Good luck!

Sportsman Guide has a cheap 12V 6k too. They are all made by the same company in Taiwan as far as I can tell.

I would hesitate to put those cheap imports under anything near their so called 'rated load'. If the planetary, brake, or cable fails, somebody could be in a world of hurt. I wonder if there is anything available on the 4x4 forums.

Pay $50-$70 and get the $50-$70 value   ;)   I know for a fact, if you skid only a few feet with one and hit a snag you break the gear shaft in 1/2 fairly easy. To northern tool Note:Please read the Forestry Forum's postion on this company's credit, when they could not locate a shaft for me to BUY, they refunded the whole purchase price towards a new Warn 1700 for me. Of course, I think using the words "pretty please" help a bit   ;)
