The worst thing about a vehicle-mounted winch is its lack of versatility. Sure, it’ll get you out of your oh-too-brave off-road shenanigans, but come home, cabin, or other winch-duties it’s tough to rely on a one-trick pony. Recognizing the challenge, the Warn Pullzall Handheld Winch ($499) provides cordless 1,000-lb load pulling capabilities. Two included rechargeable battery packs, DC power (corded AC version is also available), and compact size make it perfect for all your remote winching duties or your next cameo on Ax Men.
