The winch is great. However
on January 14, 2018
UPDATE: I contacted Warn directly regarding the Hawse fairlead that broke. They stood by their product, no questions asked. Wow. They sent me replacement parts, which I have already installed. I am very happy with Warn. I ordered an off brand aluminum billet hawse fairlead, and found that to be much better quality than the original Warn one, which appears to be cast metal (possibly cast iron). For Use with a plow, I recommend using the warn roller fair lead (which Warn sent me). Good luck.
This is for the Warn Vantage 4000-S with synthetic rope. The winch is great. However, the first, and only time I went to use this with my new snow plow, the solid metal "WARN" brand fair lead the winch came with exploded after raising and lowering the plow about 10 times. Not only did the Warn part disintegrate, but the roped continued through my front bumper, tearing it nearly in half. My brand new synthetic rope was shredded on the sharp metal edges and its now all frayed. I don't expect it will last long. The broken pieces of the fair lead look like cheap cast iron or some other, cheap cast metal.
