So I installed a 3500s provantage winch on my 18 Grizzly and after 5 trips out plowing the winch won’t pull up the plow. I’ve had a 2500s on my 02 Grizzly and never had issues but yea... according to warn it sounds like the break is out and needs warranty work. My question is, has anyone used the plow actuator on a front mount plow? I know I won’t get the same height from the blade but it may prove to be more reliable. I’m without a winch and have 12 Inches in the forecast for tomorrow.

Actuators I'm familiar with would be painfully slow. I just looked up and couldn't find the speed of the Warn

Remember to always back away from the pile some before trying to lift the plow blade. Not saying doing so is how you burned up your winch... But just in case

If I was in your situation, I'd be heading to hf or nearest big box store and dropping in their cheapest winch into the existing wiring for the storm.... Or call a friend with a plow

I’m very smart about backing up so I know it can’t be from that. Not sure how the brake would go out so quick but I’m going to send it out after the storm. Hopefully the little it does work will hold up. I’m almost tempted to buy a 3500 non s to keep on hand. Just not sure if the non S has the same internals as the S model or if it’s just the line.

I see the 3500 and 3500s have the same motor. I grabbed a 3500 for delivery tomorrow from amazon. I’ll
Swap and send out the 3500s before the storm.
Now to decide if I keep both or sell one once it’s repaired under warranty.

My experience with WARN product warranty has been excellent, I would give them a call and see if they can help. They the entire electronics on an older 2500.


My 2500 lb winch operates very quickly on a 60" + plow so something is amiss. Facing 12 inches of new snow I might just leave the blade down and do your best.

Fingers crossed. Just shipped the 3500s to Maryville IL for warranty work. Can’t see how anything I did with it would have caused that issue. Saw only 1/10th what my 2500s has.

With an approaching snow storm, it could not of picked a worse time to fail. We got some coming in Saturday but not measured in feet.
I have had great luck with the Warn 2500's

The warn actuator works very well comes with all the wiring and relays just have to hook up 2 wires to the battery route the wires and mount the actuator and its not that slow no slower than a winch
