Winch noob here. Just wanted to ask for this forum's advice on this used winch I saw on facebook. Thoughts on price/condition appreciated. Should I just save up for a new M8000 instead?

9.5ti is a good winch and that price for as clean as it looks is pretty good. I always recommend testing if you can before you buy and try to negotiate for a lower price. Make sure the clutch lever moves easily and that it freespools with only moderate resistance. Personally they are not my favorite as they cannot be serviced easily in the field but not everyone is looking for that as a feature.
