hey fellas was at 4x4 and tinny show today at the R.N.A and TJM have 12000 pound red centa winches for $500! just wondering if anyone has one or knows what they are like? i asked the guy if it was just a chinese one with there name on it and he said they are made by mile marker. but they have a 2 year warranty and for 500 bucks is it a bargain?? thinking of going back in the morning and grabbing one so plz any info would be great!!

thanks Goldy

Not sure about the quality n that, don't know anyone who had one, but it sounds like a pretty good deal seeing as TJM has advertised the same winch for $999 in magazines and for in-store promotions.

500 bucks, id get 2 and sell one haha. According to my brother in law who works at a tjm store reckons the 12000lbs red centa retails for just under $2000 and they have them for $999 on sale now. So if you can get 1 for $500 you cab get me one too hahahaha

I was at the show this afternoon (Saturday) and TJM had sold out of the 12000lbs red centas, but I paid for it at the show and they will deliver the winch to the nearest TJM store to your location. All the red centas are the same price, $500, no matter the rating, 9 10 or 12000. Hope to pick mine up by the end of the week and will post the outcome after easter as I will be using it at LCMP. As for the quality, the only trouble with the original winch was the control box, the old soleniod was dodgy so they have replaced it with the same one off the OX, so fingers crossed its all good.

More to come.

its a Arb deluxe bar i think..not to sure came out on my truck standard. didnt have the holes in it for a winch but had out lines of where the cutouts are meant to be. i thought i would give them a tap with a hammer and sure enough they just popped out. one less cutting job i need to do :). as for fitting the winch if i had bought the 10000 pound it would have bolted straight on as the motor is 20mm shorter grrr but got out the grinder and welder today and made it fit :) not to much work. cheers

Hi there,

It would be interesting to see what the winches are like. I have a Red Centa battery isolator, had no dramas with it whatsoever. It's a pretty simple unit, with no ability to manually operate.

Wonder if this special will come to Sydney. Also wonder why they are so cheap if they were originally $1K or $2K. Hopefully it is a stock clearout for a new model. That price is cheaper than a tigerz11
