Superwinch X9 Advice

We put a bid in on this winch SUPER WINCH SUPERWINCH X9 4WD Recovery Winch (eBay item 110623258795 end time 18-Dec-10 12:24:50 AEDST) : Cars, Bikes, Boats
and missed out, but the person has offered us a second chance offer to purchase it for $360.

We dont know a lot about winches, besides the obvious that Warn, Tigerz etc have a good reputation.

Is this winch good value at this price?

Going by its description it was for a Toyota but I am reasonably confident I can make it work on the Patrol. Or is there something I am missing and its not able to be wired up to the Patrol?

It is supposedly new but has been sitting in a garage for several years, could this be a problem?

It will cost me around $50-60 to courier it to Tassie.

Perhaps for the small amount of use I will get out of a winch I would be better of buying one of the Chinese eBay ones, or one from my local supercrap store for $360 that comes with a warranty but it would be Chinese as well?

Thanks for any advice.

I reckon that for the occasional user, like me, if you need the winch then you will be really stuck. I will not use mine often either, but if I need it then it will be almost last resort, and I am likely to be on my own. Rather than be out looking for a challenge, I am more likely to have got stuck just out of bad luck.

So when that happens there is no way in hell I want to be relying on a Supercheap Auto winch to get me out. All the warranty in the world is only good after you get out and you get home.

Get a quality one mate.

I have an X9 that came on the vehicle when I purchased it, and I will be rebuilding it with whatever it needs. I know I will be able to depend on it.
