We have the Warn 2000 Utility Winch up against the Supwerinch LT2000. With tons of features that you want in a winch, the Warn 2000 Utility Winch has a small size that let you mount it in close-fitting spots. You can move more things faster with the Warn 2000 that was designed to pull a light load. Featuring a permanent magnet DC motor, the Warn 2000 has 1.6 horsepower with an incredible duty cycle.

The Warn 2000 also features a strong differential planetary gear train with 12-volt power for portability. It's very versatile, especially if you install the Portable Anchor Plate with it.  This utility winch is perfect for hitch mounts and trailers, plus it comes with comes with 35 feet of 3/16" wire rope and a clasp and hook. Like the Superwinch LT2000, it also has a corded remote and a 2,000-pound pull rating.

The Superwinch LT2000 is also very compact and a very dependable utility winch. It is a very efficient tool in your workshop, in a trailer, or to use for projects around the house. Like the Warn 2000, it uses 12 volts and has a 2,000-pound pull rating, but it only has a 1.0 hp motor.

The Superwinch also has lots of features including circuit breaker protection, a free-spooling clutch, and the ability to upgrade to a functioning ATV handlebar unit by adding a few accessories. The corded remote that comes with the Superwinch LT2000 has an 8-foot lead, a cable tension plate, a high-efficiency low amp draw motor, and 49 feet of 5/32-inch wire rope with a stainless thimble.

These two utility winches run a close race with the same pull rating and efficient differential planetary gearboxes. It’s a close call, but we feel the Superwinch might be ahead with the same pull rating as the Warn but with more accessories being included for a lower price.
