One of the cheapest in our best ATV winch list, there’s nothing budget about the Bear Claw. It gives an impressive 3,100 pounds of pulling power all in a compact and tough package that’s low amp and low noise. From outdoor gear specialists Extreme Max, this little dynamo of an ATV winch includes a dynamic braking system incorporated into the gear box and motor, which are both sealed for optimum water-resistant performance, while the triple planetary gear box offers extra pull when you really need it. There are also some nice additional touches such as the snatch block as well as a free-spool option.
Installation is easy with color-coded wiring, although it does need a winching mount, but its four-bolt mounting system is a universal fit for most brands. If you are looking for a value quad winch that packs a punch when pulling the typical ATV, then this is the one for you.
