    Default Winch Rebuild

    What kinds of places can rebuild winch motors? Was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this.

    Some starter/generator/alternator shops can.

    That being said, it was cheaper for me to buy a new motor from the winch company than have the bad one rebuilt!

    Under $100 (shipped) for a new motor for my Champion 7500.

    What brand of winch? Can't hurt to check with the company about a new motor.

    I have a Warn M8000. Talked to a guy at Warn today, replacement motor goes for about $210 shipped from Warn, which is about 40% of what the winch cost me new.

    OUCH! Yeah I picked my Warn 8000Xi up for $500. Great winch!

    Probably going to just buy a new motor. I think it would be worth it for a new one. I just want to get my winch cable so it's not wrapped around my bumper.

    any alt/stater/generator shop can fix it for you, if there is one near you. try looking under the big rig shops in your area.
