Northern tool sells a Warn mount that is already attached to a male 2" receiver post. That's what I'm looking for (in how I want my winch to go on the front or rear of the machine).

The ad on their site says it's pre-drilled for the 3700 and the 4700 Warn winch.

I'm guessing the 4700 is "better". It should be. It costs over 2X as much.

My question is......is the 3700 "adequate" for something the size of the Pioneer? For reference, my ATV has never even come close to being stuck in anything. I've use a winch "maybe" 9X in 9 years, and I'm guessing the one I own now is a 1500.

Just checking......Thanks.

DB. If your not going anywhere that you'll be getting stuck. I'd tailor your winch to your own needs. The rule of thumb I've always used is at least 1.5 times the GVWR.

I use my winch a lot. Its my extra set of hands. So personally I go top of the mark. Because I will be in spots where I am rodding on it in reverse while pulling with the winch. Warn has never let me down in those spots.

If I wasn't doing stuff like that a slower speed lighter rated winch would be worth the savings. Just make sure you don't go small, then decide to start going out swamp in.

I think if your usage stays true to what it has been, you should be fine.

Think of a bigger winch like a spare tire. You might never use it, but your sure going to wish you had it when the time comes. :)

Get the KFI and save yourself some money and still get a bigger winch. I got the 4500 Stealth for under $400

Mark my words……there will come a day when your glad you have all the winch you got. :) It took a long walk in the rain, two come-alongs, and two hours work to get out of this jamb (before I had installed a viper 4000# winch). :eek:
