That look like it could be a good bit of kit two things that stand out a well made safety hook and a snatch block with a grease nipple pin when the accessories are well made and not just cheap copies you have a good chance the winch should follow suit.

I don't know I think looks are deceiving and remember the current exchange rate make these a winch at the budget end of the market. AUS being a huge market then there is lots of winch brands out there fighting for this end of the spectrum, VRS, T-maxx, Runva, TJM, Bushranger, Ironman and Domin8r to name a few.

What they have in common is although I say this without 99% proof is an uncanny similarity in looks when you start thumbing through the brochures. It is no secret that many winches are born in China or Thailand, Kingone and Comeup are massive manufacture's of winches so I wouldn't be surprised if the base skeletons are built there before being shipped to the native company for the cosmetics.

You still get what you pay for at this price point I still advocate the cautious second premium model so even If you have to stick a new Albright or motor on it you have good solid gearing and build quality. Also can be found on Fb, Ytube, Insta & Twitter @4WDSouthwest
