What about the Superwinch Terra Series? They seem to have many of the features of Viper/Warn XT winches, with a remarkable price point.

Does anyone have experience with these?

warn is better than the cheap winches but its junk compared to vipers. Ive had a viper 4000 elite for about a year now and ive abused it been underwater i even had a tree branch go through the freespool knob and it wont quit working. i ordered a new knob as i wasnt gonna claim it on warranty when it was my fault for trailblazing but im a believer in vipers. I had to rebuild my dads warn winch one of my old warns and i got a cat 400 with a warn 2500 on it that was messed up. i rebuilt it and now im selling it to buy another viper for the rear of my cat.
Heck this 2500 the contactor is not working so i have to buy a $25 contactor the winch motor was all rusty and the gears had virtually no grease in there like there supposed to just a little grease and mostly gummy nasty black stuff so i cleaned that and filled it up with grease fixed the motor and siliconed the junky winch best i could to try and make it last a bit longer for the next person before they have to rebuild it. screw warn ive never had a problem with a viper. But i had a promark and i couldnt even rebuild it after it went out so warn is still better than those cheap crap winches.

FYI, the other main difference is all viper max winches come standard with steel cable whilst the elites come standard with synthetic!

3000 Viper Max, and no complaints at all. It's been on the Brute for nearly 7100kms, and no issues with it at all.
I see someone said their rocker switch failed and they got a couple replacements. Mine failed also, but it was going to be $22 for a replacement, and that much again to ship it.... That's my only beef.
And the switch failed internally.....to spool IN you had to start pushing really hard for it to make contact.

Aside from the switch, I'm very happy with the product.

3 viper elites, so far just 1 switch crapped out and the free spool knob on my bike does not work well. Will buy again when I get a SXS
