Did a lot of checking and Today I ordered a Sabre 12,000lbs two speed winch, can't wait to install it in the new bumper when it lands.

East Re: Runva Winches, any good?

Anyone else running a Runva winch? feedback would be good........for the amount i will use it and a lifetime warranty it looks good enough for me and the right price too.

Well its fine if you dont plan on using it too much. I have a cousin who uses his winch constantly instead of just pulling someone out with a recovery strap but he uses a Titan.

Realisticly if you're using a winch 4 times plus a year you're probably doing something wrong or you're like me and constantly taking on trails with guys in varying rig sizes.

As i said previously I've ordered a new Titan Winch based on the reviews of this and other forums, the Sabre 12,000 lb dual speed with synthetic rope should be landing this week or early next week.
After talking to Duncan at Titan Winches all I can say is this man appears to know his stuff, the fellow at Runva was unsure on some questions, the life time warranty offered by Runva isn't going to help you get out of trouble if its broke and parts are on order. I opted for the Titan based on its speed and performance.
Hope this Thread ha helped other like myself.

Great to hear. Duncan is awesome, I've always enjoyed dealing with him. I buy all my recovery stuff from him, from shackles to tree savers.

Received the Sabre winch and its looks great. Can't wait for the bumpers to land and get things hooked up. I'm glad i went with the synthetic rope ], only regret is the RED winch hook. A can of paint will fix that.lol
