I would not call it quieter from a db perspective. It is a different sound. The Powerwinch sounded like a wounded walrus trying to get back to the ocean.

Powderpiggy can you post a picture of how you mounted the winch. I was thinking of doing the same thing.

Warn ATV winch

The M190XR has a 4' ATV platform and an open space between the coupler and the platform frame. The Powerwinch is located near the coupler. The horizontal frame member has a rectangular slot cutout for the cable to go thru.

I mounted the winch on the supplied bracket by drilling 2 holes and centered it on the opening. I reused the existing cable, but had to reduce by a couple of wire bundles to fit thru the slot in the winch drum. The Warn cable is a smaller diameter. I used the handle bar control switch and mounted it near my main battery keyed switch. The handle bar control requires a dc voltage to operate, so I wired it into the keyed switch. Cabling was bundled and placed on underside tray beneath the existing Powerwinch. I took out the inline 60 amp fuse on the Powerwinch so it is disabled but can be reused in the future.

The picture is taken from the front right side.

Well the popup winch issue is now over and a new motor and the top goes up in well under 10 seconds. Replacement of the old motor was easy and simple, other than having to cut the cable from the last motor. The electrical was just putting the wires to the battery. The new motor came with the cover assembly but I used the old cover instead so I did not have to drill the new holes on the frame. Click image for larger version
