Winch remote

Recommended Posts

Has anyone considered making a remote for their winch? My 6 and 3 year olds work for now, but I know one day I'll be by myself and want controls in the front. I figured you electrical guys might have some good input!

You might want to consider just buying a new winch. I have ordered several from Rocky Mountain ATV, I don't know what kind of riding you do but for me the factory 2500# is very weak. you can get a 3000# or a 4000# Warn and the new ones are waterproof. You can get wired or wireless remotes for them and they are quiet and they will last a very long time.

      I am reaching out to see if anyone on here has experience with the X&Y products.  I purchased a used 600UTV a few months ago and it appears it may have some electrical issue.  It kills a new battery in just 2-3 months.  Fortunately, my battery warranty has saved me so far, but I can't count on that indefinitely. 
      It starts great with the new battery, but over the course of weeks, it will need a jump start, and then eventually the battery would not even accept a charge.  I am on my 2nd new battery now.
      I am a newbie when it comes to UTVs.  Is there an alternator on these?  If not, what mechanism is there to charge the battery when in use?

      My family moved from Illinois to Leadville Colorado about 3 months ago.  Leadville has a lot of trails to ride and some fun off road stuff  that i would love to start getting into with my boys. I currently have a 04 HD FXD Superglide that i might sell or trade for a UTV. My question is are there any UTV that are good solid used side by side that i could find for about $4500 or $5000? If not I will keep saving for something. If so what brand and year should i be looking for? Thank you for your help!!
      Thank you

      Hello, I’m writing this because I desperately need some assistance with front axle for kubota rtv 900 2000 model.
      My stepfather told me his two front axles of his  kubota rtv broken separately yesterday and he couldn't distinguish which is for left or right.
      Are left and right front cv axles the same on a 2000 kubota rtv 900 4x4 ? And what's the cost of kubota rtv 900 axles ?
      I don't learn much about kubota rtv and hope someone tell me.
      Thank you.
