i have the opportunity to buy a mile marker 8000E winch brand new in a box for 350 from a family member...it has sat for 5 years collecting dust and when i asked about it he said make me an offer, so i did. I know most people like warn or go the cheap champion way but i wanted something in between.Are they a good winch and or should i buy it b/c of the price???? It has a 100 foot 3/8 aircraft cable and has 3 planetary gear set with the remote and a 2 HP motor.....what are your thoughts....

damn good price for a brand new winch. Mile marker makes great hydraulic winches. I think their electric ones are decent too.

thanks guys...i thought so but having not hearing very much about mile marker i wasent to sure.....i will buy it then
milemarker makes great hydraulic winches but I haven't heard anything good about their electric ones. apparently they are in the same cheap line as champions made overseas. but the price is right so go for it.
hell yes dude ....

I've got tthe same model as what you're talking about and it works great. Althought it is just not as fast to wind as a higher priced winch. I'd say go for it.
