Also keep in mind, to have maximum pulling power, you need maximum current draw... which in the case of most electrics is around 200-300amps. Very few charging systems can keep up with this for any amount of time. It was doubleful the winch was stalling at its true maximum capacity.
But sounds like you did the right thing anyway which was change to be better angle of pull for your situation, which got you out without requiring as much from the winch.
Quote: Depending on the length of the pull until you were free of that high of snow, I don't think Warn would have managed it either.
I dunno, depends on the winch and the circumstances its used. there is something said for the quality of Warn's products. Warns have much larger and more robust motors, where Milemarker (and others) use smaller motors with more gear reduction.
