Just got a Viper Max 4500 with Amsteel Synthetic cable.

Great kit from MotoAlliance includes Viking mounting plate, wiring harness, contactor, dash switch, remote cable switch, hawse fairlead, rubber stop, all mounting hardware. nothing else needed.

I have the Viper 5000 lb wide spool with metal cable. I have used it a bunch to move 1000 lb logs out of small ravines. I try and place a pulley as often as possible to have a mechanical advantage. It has worked flawlessly. I always stay within the duty cycle to avoid overheating.

Thanks for all your info fellas, it's been very helpful. The viper and super winch don't seem to ship to Australia via eBay, but the KFI does, and if I was to get a Provantage then there is always trusty RMATV cheapest fastest shipping to AU. I think I may go for the KFI Stealth. Cheers
Have a great Christmas guys.

I have a warn vantage 3500 it works good for my plow never had to pull myself out of a mud hole or anything. I would have got the pro vantage with they wireless remote if I had the choice. If you don't mind spending the money I'd say pro vantage

Yeah I'm on the canamforum as well and the vipers get great reviews, big strong motors and take the water and mud well but the shipping to Australia was a little bit rich for me. Cheers
