Chris Experience: Polaris Ranger XP 900 and Vantage 4000 (Phone Call Typescript)

Yesterday I call to my friend Chris and asked to describe his adventures with Warn and Polaris.

Roy: “Hello Chris. Share your experience with Vantage winch please.”

Chris:“I have been choosing among two winch brands: Superwinch and Warn and finally gave preference to the last one. I have been having my Vantage 4000 for over 5 years already. Immediately after getting my ATV I decided to make a research and found out that Warn winches are much spoken about. I have stopped on 4000 pulling capacity and never regretted. During 5 years use the only thing I needed to replace was the cable. My next winch will be definitely Warn again as mine has never let me down. Thanks to Vantage 4000 I never faced potentially dangerous troubles. I like that warn winches are resistant to corrosion and can be used, regardless weather conditions. Their winches aren’t afraid of anything and make you a king of the terrain as well.”
