Certainly. If you want reliability and it is just for emergency use, it is perfect. But they are slow. If you are doing a lot of winching, it takes forever to get anywhere.

This is why I stated that we need to know the intended use. Someone that intends to winch 10 times a day is different than someone that just has it for that rare emergency.

There's no comparison, as far as duty cycle, between an electric winch and a PTO or hydraulic winch.
Even if you had an electrical system that could maintain 300amps all day, the winch motor wouldn't last.
Don't get me wrong, the 8274 is a great winch, I have two of them, but it's not reality to say they can compete with a mechanical winch when it comes to duty cycle.

My intention is for emergency use...Southern Cal...High Desert...low to no H20 or mud crossings (cause there is none in So Cal)

Then the worm drives are a good choice, like the Husky. Less to go wrong, always works. Low profile to fit in your needs.
