Under 3000 Lb Winch

“Any UTV rider who has been weighed down unnecessarily by an overpowered winch that they don’t need knows that one size does not fit all when it comes to this important device. If you don’t need the strongest winch on the market, then what’s the point of all that extra weight? With a Can-Am Defender under-3000-lb. winch, you can still successfully recover your UTV when it gets stuck, so long as you don’t have a ton of heavy accessories weighing you down. It also always helps to have pulleys and snatch blocks, especially in the case of a Can-Am Defender or Defender MAX under-3000-lb. winch, because they will help give you a boost in power. Alternatively, if you find yourself routinely lugging heavy equipment and/or game into your bed, you can also use a Can-Am Defender 2000, 2500, and 3000-lb. winch to hoist these bulky items by mounting it under your rear roof rack. These more compact UTV winches are also easier to use with most of the winch-compatible bumpers we have on offer. Especially when the bumper utilizes multiple frame attachment point, there should be absolutely no issue securing your Can-Am Defender under-3000-lb. winch to it and using it regularly. That’s the best part about these smaller winches, in fact – they will still come in clutch when it counts without damaging your mount, bumper, frame, and other components. If you’re not sure whether or not a smaller UTV winch is right for you, just look back at your last season or two of riding and ask yourself, “Did I ever truly need a 3000+ lb. winch?” If the answer is no, then come check out our top-quality KFI, EMP, Viper winches and more. “

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.
