I fully agree you can never have too much winch, but several years ago I was at an auction and there was an older, Sears Craftsman electric winch, rated at 2,500 pounds. I wasn't too interested since it was rather small, but the auctioneer was having trouble getting bids on that item, so I raised my hand and ended up with it for a song. Just for grins, I mounted it on my deck-over gooseneck trailer, mounted a 12 volt battery on the trailer which is also connected to my truck, and then proceeded to winch a Farmall H onto the trailer. Figured that H at 4,000 pounds or above.
That little 2,500# rated winch never even slowed down or broke a sweat. It just pulled that H right up the ramps and onto the trailer.
