The Honda Pioneer 500 is roughly 1,100lbs, and if you add the weight of the rider as well as some aftermarket accessories, you’ll likely be pushing 1,500lbs. Now imagine getting that puppy — or the heavier 700cc or 1000cc Honda Pioneer — stuck in deep mud without a winch. Have fun with that. If you don’t want to avoid obstacles out of fear of getting stuck, or if you want the peace of mind that comes with knowing you can recover your machine no matter what happens, a Honda Pioneer winch is what you need. The Honda Pioneer 2,500lb winch will get you out of a jam whether you’re stuck, or dead stuck. For more pulling power, a Honda Pioneer 3,500lb winch or Honda Pioneer 4,500lb winch is in necessary. You can even get winches rated in the 5,000lb range. This might be overkill for some use cases, but it’s always better to have the extra power and not need it, than need the extra power and and not have it. Furthermore, the listed rating of a wench is calculated using a winch with an empty spool. As the cable winds in and the spool get bigger, the rating goes down. But even with lower-powered UTV winches, through the use of winch accessories such as snatch blocks and pulleys, you can nearly double the pulling power of your winch.
Be it a Warn Axion 4,500lb winch, a Badlands 5,000lb winch, or the Black Ops series winch by SuperATV, at Everything Honda Offroad, our winch selection is unsurpassed. We have Champion winches and Viper winches, and all the Honda Pioneer winch mounts to stick them wherever you want. Honda Pioneer winch bumpers are a great way to mount a winch, but they aren’t the only option. Generally, the stronger the winch, the bigger it is. And a wide winch is going to need an equally wide mounting plate.
