Champion winches are much cheaper than their better known rivals like industry leader Warn Winch. And you could add availability to what Champion brings to the market because you can walk into your local Costco or Sam's Club and pick one up and take it right home with you. A Champion could cost you about half of what you'd pay for a comparable Warn but is it worth it? If "you get what you pay for" holds true with winches, what do you get with a relatively inexpensive Champion Winch?
So is a Champion Winch right for you? If you don't have to use it a lot, it could be. Check the forums and you'll find owners who rarely use their winches more than a few times a year. If you're on a tight budget and you make sure you know its limitations, a Champion winch could be an economical and practical alternative.
