Best ATV & UTV Winch Guide | Mounted & Portable | Tips for Buyers

by Mile Marker on April 27, 2023 Categories: Mile Marker Blog

In search of the best winch for your ATV? This ATV winch guide will help you determine which winch is best for your off-roading needs:


Most ATVs range from 500-2000 pounds. This is why Mile Marker makes a variety of vehicle-mounted ATV/UTV winches in 2500, 3500, 5000 and even 12,000 lb. pull rating, as well as our portable handheld battery powered Rhino Pull 1000, rated at 1000 lb., for your off-roading needs. Here’s a link to our powersports line, and our Maverick line:


When you are looking for versatile winches, look for the full package— not just the winch itself. As an example, the portable Rhino Pull 1000 comes with batteries, a wall plug, a wireless remote, a remote wire, and a tow strap. A hard cased Rhino Field Kit is also available as well as a power kit with a variety of powering and charging options. That means once you order your winch, you’ll be prepared with everything you need to hit the trails on your ATV.


Think you can only buy a winch that comes in the basic colors? Think again! Through the Mile Marker Custom Shop you can order a Rhino Pull 1000 in just about any color you can dream up— not just Mile Marker’s signature orange  (although we think that’s a great choice too!). Our MileKote ceramic coating finishes are available in a wide range of colors.


When you buy a winch, you want to be sure that it will be running for years to come. That’s why Mile Marker offers warranties on all their winches. The Rhino Pull 1000 offers a one-year warranty, as well as a 90 day warranty on the rechargeable batteries that come with your purchase. During your warranty period, Mile Marker will replace your winch or repair the necessary parts at no charge to you. In the future Mile Marker will be making extended warranties available.


Before you make the final decision on which winch to buy, make sure you read the reviews! One reviewer for the Rhino Pull 1000 said, “I would recommend this winch to any DIY person.” Another said, “I purchased my first Rhino 1000 about a year ago [...] I am now the proud owner of 10 of them. The winches have literally saved me thousands of dollars in wages.” Read more reviews and learn more about the Rhino Pull here.
