was told by my dealer the pro vantage is for hi usage. i went with the 3500 pro vantage. and put synthetic rope one it. the super winch looks god. and cheaper. same bolt mounting pattern. i have a 2003 2500 warn winch that the motor is no good. and am going to try the super winch.
I used a ProVantage 2500 on my Rhino and pulled out a handful of fullsize trucks with it. I have a ProVantage 3500S on my Wolverine and have only used it once so far to pull a RZR 1000 out of a mudhole.
hey guy new to forum, just brought a new r spec camo today. got the winch on promo. just wondering if it just mine or do they not come with the power wires and dash mounted switch. or is it like the polaris sportsman it has the power wires already on it from factory.
Just a heads up for folks installing the Provantage winch. Do not use the short leads that come with the winch since it places the contactor too low on the machine. The contactor is only water resistant and if it gets submerged it could stop working. Make sure it is located under the hood near the firewall where it can stay nice and dry. I didn’t realize it was simply water resistant and after a dip in a mud hole it stopped working. I must have had it submerged dozens of times without a problem, but that fateful dip was one too many. The warn service center told me that Yamaha developed the specifications for the winch and that they never should have went with the short leads. Nonetheless, warn replaced my contactor but that won’t help you on the trail. Their advice was to keep it as high as possible.
Good to know...I mounted my wireless receiver on the firewall but did leave my contactor on the front grill area as directed in the Yamaha install paperwork...might have to rethink that. Thanks mvarner!
Provantage is a better winch. I was told the 4500# Provantage would not fit in my X2, so I went with 4500. Others have stated it does fit. Go as big as you can, I have never heard anyone say my winch is too powerful.
