Viking winch?

I came across a winch being sold by Viking. It's branded by them but its made in Taiwan. The thing looks like its put together with some nice material but one never knows. Any one have experience with these things? I believe they are fairly new.

Not sure, but they are around and not too spendy. Doug had one. Not sure if it sold.

I begrudgingly sold mine. I really did not like it. It was huge and heavy and blocked most of the rad. The Koenig PTO driven is where it is at.
