Master Lock 2953AT 12-Volt DC Portable Winch
I decided to include the Master Lock 2953AT 12-Volt DC Portable Winch on this list because of its wide range of pulling capabilities. With its steel cable it can drag items up to 2000 pounds over bare ground, 5000 pounds through the water, and up to 6000 pounds if the item is rolling (such as a wheeled UTV). This versatility alone makes this a valuable winch to have.
I also liked the fact this winch comes with both a remote and a hand crank. This ensures if your remote should break for whatever reason you can still operate it. Another impressive aspect of this product is the automatic shut down if the winch ever overloads which will help it last a long time.
