5000+ Lb Winch

“Clearly, if you’ve made it here, you’re not messing around. For the majority of UTV riders, anywhere up to 4,000 lbs. in terms of pulling capacity is sufficient for a Can-Am Defender aftermarket winch. If you’ve got a serious workload ahead of you in terms of weight, frequency of use, or both, then it’s time to recruit a heavy hitter like these Can-Am Defender 5,000+ lb. winches. Think these bigger and badder winches will cost you in versatility? While they are indeed significantly heavier than most winches, that doesn’t mean you can’t choose where or how to mount them – at least not at Everything Can-Am Offroad. You can still find front- or rear-bumper mounted configurations, a variety of brackets and plates, and a number of control options (on-unit, remote, etc.) within this growing category. Combine these seriously strong Can-Am Defender 5,000+ lb. winches with a pulley and/or snatch block or two, and you will pull off some ridiculous recoveries – even waist-high mud! Of course, the choice to go with a heavy-duty UTV winch isn’t completely without its drawbacks. We’ve already discussed the extra weight, but many riders who don’t prepare for the increased power draw can also run into performance issues. Most choose to accommodate this with a second battery, which does the trick nicely. As long as you make the proper preparations, we have the best selection of Can-Am Defender 5,000+ lb. winches around from top brands like Viper, Kimpex, and SuperATV to help get you out of trouble. “

And what about small parts, should you bring some of those along as well? Short answer, yes. A belt is good to have on the machine at all times, and having an axle in the bike or at the very least the truck is also good. It’s hard to know exactly where to draw the line with what to bring, but you definitely need to have room for a cooler full of beverages no matter what. And don’t forget to bring a clutch tool for changing the belt, electrical tape, crescent wrenches, and hose clamps.

Regarding at-home Can-am Defender tools, a grease gun is a must for greasing up wheel bearings. If you’re doing any work on the clutch, be it either the primary or secondary, you’re going to need a special CVT clutch tool if you want to do it right. This tool loosens the belt up by spreading the secondary sheaves, making it so that when you put it all back together, you can do so much easier and, more importantly, correctly. Your Can-Am Defender clutch isn’t something you want to cut corners on, especially since it is your main source to make a machine move. Of course there are ways around using specialized UTV tools, but for what they cost we would without a doubt just recommend buying the right tools to get the job done right the first time.
