ATV and UTV riders, by their nature, occasionally bite off more than they can chew. Sometimes that means trying to cross a mud hole that’s a bit too deep, crawl over some rocks that are too big, or break something on your machine you can’t fix away from the garage. In other words, sometimes you get yourself stuck and your driving skills alone can’t get you out.

This is why is makes sense to travel with a friend to help get you out of a jam and to invest in a winch or other towing accessories to save you an aching back. We’ve put together a list of all the ATV and UTV winches we could find and included some details on each to help you figure out what you might need before your next great off-road adventure.
