While not included in the best atv winch buying guide, the warn provantage winch stands out by having the option of two control switches for the user to choose from if they prefer one over the other. There’s also a roller disk brake that the user can use to gain more control while operating the winch. But is it safe to use on your latest car? Well, the answear lies in this review.

Why We Like It – Warn 90250 ProVantage 2500 Winch

This winch is made of high quality parts that prevents things such as corrosion. Not only is it much more than just water-resistant, it’s fully sealed for long lasting and consistent performance and durability! It also comes with a 50 foot steel wire rope to complete the image and functionality of overall durability.

  • Fully sealed
  • Easy to install
  • High quality parts
  • Expensive


This fully sealed winch contains parts that help avoid what can be detrimental to its overall performance such as corrosion. It comes with two switches: A dash mounted control switch and a mini-rocker control switch, and it also has a permanent magnet motor with a horsepower of 0.9, which is noticeably slower than the Superwinch 1135220 Fairlead Handlebar Handheld winch, which has a horsepower of 1.6. It only has a 2500 pound pulling capacity while winches around the same price can have double the capacity.


It contains a 3 stage planetary gear train along with a 50 foot steel wire rope and a plow roller fairlead. Unlike the superwinch 1130220 lt3000atv fairlead handlebar winch, it doesn’t come with a mount plate. However, it can use both steel wire rope and synthetic wire rope like the LT3000ATV can. It’s also easy to install and mount, although according to a couple of customer reviews, the instructions for how to install this winch could use more detail.

This warn winch tends to cost over $400, surpassing the smittybilt 97495 xrc winch capacity despite having less features and a slower motor. One factor that can determine the overall price is the quality of the parts of the winch, as just a replacement for the all metal gear housing costs hundreds of dollars at most since it’s a standard for some of the warn winches. The fact that it’s fully sealed, rather than just water-resistant, can also be another factor.
