Badland FAQ

Where Are Badland Winches Made?
Harbor Freight’s Badland winches are designed in Calabasas, California at our state-of-the-art design center and built by our industry’s leading manufacturers of tools. By searching worldwide, Harbor Freight is able to create relationships with some of the industry’s leading manufacturers of tools. We work closely with each of our partners to ensure that all of our products are safe to use and will last our customers for years to come. In most cases these manufacturers are the same ones that produce products for other big name brands, but because we buy directly from them and sell directly to our customers, our prices are much more competitive.

The Quality of Our Products
It is important that all of our products, including Badland, offer more than just an incredible value, they must also be reliable and can stand up to our customers’ needs. All of our Badland products are tested in quality assurance laboratories both in our partnered factories, as well as, our local California based facility and come backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Our Badland APEX Synthetic 12,000lb. Wireless Winch gives customers a strong, flexible, easy-to-use system built to tackle the toughest terrain in the most extreme conditions. It starts with a powerful series-wound motor focused on optimizing power delivery to minimize excess heat while maintaining line speeds up to 31.5 ft. per minute. The all hardened steel machined planetary gears offer fast, quiet, and reliable pulling power and the brake was designed with a durable automatic composite cone to hold the max rated load. The winch is rated at IP68 and IP69K, which makes it not only dustproof and waterproof, but also tested to stand up to 1450 PSI water streams for peace of mind, day in and day out. It comes with a 3/8 in. x 80 ft. ultra-high molecular weight synthetic rope which is both stronger, safer, and 80% lighter than standard steel rope. We also included a wireless remote, an oversized forged alloy steel hook for easy winching, and a control box baseplate giving you the flexibility to relocate the control box and make mounting this winch even easier on vehicles.
