Come Up Winch ATV Series

This Cub 3 ATV recovery winch is designed for light-duty work and recreational applications. It's perfect for your 350cc - 500cc sport quad or small utility quad 4x4 with a maximum GVW of 1,500 lbs. The handlebar-mounted rocker switch lets you control the winch from the seat of your ATV. The motor, gearbox, and contactor are sealed for water resistance. The winch also includes dual brakes to ensure reliable load holding, a wire rope, and a roller fairlead.

Light-Duty, 1-Horsepower Motor

Come Up Winch ATV Series motor

This winch features a 1-horsepower, 12-volt DC motor with 3,000 lbs of line pull. The permanent magnet motor offers the same line-pulling power and speed as a series-wound motor of comparable size, but it's lighter and uses less current. The motor is sealed to keep out water, and it's constructed of durable, corrosion-resistant materials including the powder coated housing, copper battery terminals, and zinc-plated steel hardware.

Sealed Contactor

Come Up Winch ATV Series contactor

The contactor transmits power from the ATV's battery to the winch motor and to the handlebar-mounted rocker switch. It will typically be mounted with included hardware under the ATV's front cover or hood near the battery.

The 250-amp contactor is sealed to meet IP68 specifications for water and weather resistance. The copper terminals and carbon steel hardware are also corrosion resistant.

Free-Spooling Clutch

Come Up Winch ATV Series clutch

The free-spool clutch enables you to pull out the rope by hand. This saves battery power, prevents the brake from wearing down prematurely, reduces wear on the motor, and is much faster than waiting for the drum to power out the rope. To release the clutch for free-spooling simply rotate the red plastic knob 90 degrees clockwise. To reengage the clutch, rotate the knob 90 degrees counterclockwise. The white arrow on the knob indicates if the clutch is in the engaged or disengaged position.

The clutch is driven by a 3-stage planetary gear train. This provides more speed than traditional worm gear drives or 1- or 2-stage gear trains.

Automatic, Load-Holding Mechanical and Dynamic Brakes

This winch includes both a mechanical brake and a dynamic brake. This dual braking system provides a physical brake inside the drum and supplemental braking force generated by the winch motor. The 2 brakes operate simultaneously to ensure more reliable load holding when compared with single-brake ATV winches.

The automatic mechanical brake securely holds a load and prevents unintentional payout (or creep). When the winch motor is stopped, a large spring coil inside the drum expands to press against the spring chamber. The pressure of the spring on the wall of the spring chamber creates resistance that prevents the drum from rotating. This spring contracts when the winch is in gear to allow the drum to rotate.

When the winch is pulling the rope in or paying it out, the motor is not applying resistance to the drum. When you stop powering the rope in or out, the dynamic brake uses resistance from the motor to help hold the load.

Handlebar-Mounted Rocker Switch

Come Up Winch ATV Series rocker switch

The handlebar-mounted rocker switch lets you operate the winch from the seat of your ATV. It includes mounting hardware and an 8' wiring harnesss with quick connects. There is also a wireless remote kit (CU881286 - sold separately) that lets you control the winch from up to 100' away.

Wire Rope

ComeUp Winch wire rope

The wire rope is made of high-strength, aircraft-grade galvanized steel that resists abrasions and is able to withstand harsh UV rays, chemicals, and extreme temperatures.

The rope winds around a die-cast aluminum drum. The mounting flanges are strong enough to resist bending or breaking if the rope wrap becomes uneven and excess stress is put on the drum.

A hand-saver strap is included to use in conjunction with work gloves (CU881558 - sold separately) so that you can safely handle the rope and hook. A rock bag (CU881557 - sold separately) is also recommended for added protection. The rock bag helps prevent a broken rope from snapping back if it breaks by forcing it to the ground.

ComeUp Winch steel hook

The removable steel hook is made of high-strength forged steel that is heavy duty and rust resistant. It has a spring-loaded safety latch for quick fastening and removal. The hook attaches to the steel thimble on the end of the wire rope.

Roller Fairlead

Roller Fairlead

The roller fairlead has a thick steel frame with 4 steel rollers. The rollers reduce friction when you're pulling the rope in or paying it out, and they prevent the rope from becoming pinched when pulling at extreme angles. It has a black powder coat finish and zinc-plated rollers that are tough and corrosion resistant. The fairlead installs with the included steel hardware.

Note: The roller fairlead does not mount directly to the winch - it typically attaches to tabs on the ATV base plate (sold separately) or custom mounting plate (sold separately). ComeUp mounting plates and most aftermarket mounts include these tabs.

Rugged Construction

Come Up Winch ATV Series construction

The winch is constructed of strong, durable materials that are able to withstand any weather condition or terrain. The contactor is sealed and submersible. The motor and gearbox units are made of corrosion-resistant powder coated steel, and they are sealed to keep water out. The steel tie-bars and extra-thick side frame drum supports help to create a strong and rigid winch body.


To install the winch on the front of your ATV you will need a suitable mounting location. In most cases you will need to bolt a custom mounting plate (sold separately) to the front framework of your ATV in order to mount the winch and fairlead. If you have a mounting plate that does not have tabs for your fairlead you can bolt the winch and fairlead to a base plate (CU880232 - sold separately), then bolt the base plate to your mounting plate.

Come Up Winch ATV Series

The contactor will typically mount under the front cover or hood near the battery. You will need to drill 2 small holes in the mounting surface to secure the unit with the included hardware. Black and red leads connect your vehicle's battery to the contactor, blue and yellow leads connect the contactor to the winch terminals, black and green leads connect the contactor to the rocker switch, and a red lead connects the rocker switch to the ATV master switch. The leads have quick connectors that make removing and re-installing the winch easy. Any excess wiring can be neatly tucked around the engine and secured with zip-ties (not included).

You can mount the rocker switch on either handlebar but it's typically mounted near the brake on the handlebar opposite the throttle. This allows you to control the winch and accelerate the ATV at the same time. It includes mounting hardware and an 8' wiring harnesss with built-in quick connects.

Winch Line Pull Capacity

Layers of RopeCapacity (lbs)Total Rope on Drum (ft)
1st Layer3,0009-5/16
2nd Layer2,58520-1/16
3rd Layer2,27132-1/2
4th Layer2,02546-5/16
5th Layer1,82750

The line pull capacity of your winch is determined by the maximum load your winch can pull with a single layer of rope on the drum. As more layers of rope are wound onto the drum, pulling the same load requires more force, leading to a loss in winching power. With a 2nd layer of rope around the drum, your line pull capacity is reduced by approximately 14 percent. With 3 layers on the drum, the line pull capacity is reduced by approximately 23 percent, and with 4 layers on the drum it is reduced by approximately 35 percent.

Note: It is recommended that you begin any line pull with a minimum of 5 wraps and a maximum of 2 layers of rope on the drum.

Double-Line Pulling

Double-Line Pulling

Increase the pulling capacity of your winch by doubling up the rope with a pulley block (CU881080 - sold separately). Secure the pulley block to a tree saver strap (CU881091 - sold separately) with a bow shackle (CU881092 - sold separately) to provide a strong anchor for your double-line pull. Using double-line operation will approximately double your winch's pulling capacity.

Video Transcript for ComeUp Electric Winch - ATV - UTV Winch - CU123529 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number CU123529. This is the Comeup CUB 3 Power Sport's ATV Wench. This model is going to feature the wire rope. The CUB series wench is going to help get you out of the mud, snow, ice, or whatever obstacle stands in your way. It's designed for endurance and reliability. Its going to feature a high efficient, low amp draw, sealed, permanent magnet motor.

This right here is going to be our sealed contactor. This is going to be what connects the wench wiring to the ATV battery. What this does is it disconnects your wench from the power source when the vehicle is not in use. So it should be amounted close to the ATV battery. The yellow and blue wires are going to connect to the yellow and blue posts here on the wench, its going to run to the yellow and blue posts here on the contactor, and then the red and black wiring is going to connect to the red and black posts on the contactor, and run to the positive and negative terminals or posts on the ATV battery. It's going to come with your handlebar rocker switch and wiring. It's got the plug on it that matches up with the plug here on the contactor.

That's going to allow you to control the in and out function of the wench from the seat of the ATV, so that's included. Now this section of hardware right here, this is the mounting bracket for the rocker switch. It's going to come with some options, when it comes to the bolt length, or the screw length, that way it can accommodate a wide variety of handle bar setups and applications out there. So it's going to come with all the necessary wiring and hardware. The only thing that you're going to need to get that's not included is going to be a mounting bracket for the wench, and for the the fairlead. That's going to be the same bracket, but they don't include one because it's going to be specific upon the type of ATV that you have. All the wiring is going to be color coded as well as the posts, so it makes the wiring installation much easier. The unit is going to feature a 3000 pound rating with a single line pull on the wench. So that's going to be our max capacity.

The motor is at 800 watt, 1 horsepower, 12 volt permanent magnet motor. When it comes to the gear system, we're looking at a 3 stage planetary gear unit, and the gear ratio is going to be 138.5 to 1. On this side of the wench, we're going to have an easy to operate clutch mechanism. It has two positions, engaged and disengaged. Engaged is going to allow you to bring the wire rope in using the switch right here. Then with the disengage, it actually turns it into a free spool option, which is going to offer fast wire rope payout, that's going to allow you to extend the rope out and get it connected to your load or to the anchor point.

This right here is going to be the roller fairlead. This is going to get mounted onto the wench mounting bracket, using theses two holes here, and the hardware that comes with the kit. The wire rope is going to run in between the rollers, that's going to reduce the amount of friction on the rope, which is going to extend the life of the rope. When it comes to the hub, we're looking at aluminum die cast drum construction. It's going to feature a center drum design, that's going to the give us a drum size, when it comes to the diameter, of 2.2 inches, by 3 inches in length. When it comes to the braking system, we're looking at mechanical and dynamic load-holding brake, that's going to offer 100% braking. We're going to have the nice wire rope. This is the 87 by 19 galvanized aircraft-grade cable. It's going to feature the grade 70 hook, with the spring-loaded safety latch. That way it doesn't come disconnected. The cable is going to measure 50 feet long by 3/16 of an inch diameter. Here on the bottom, we're going to have our mounting pattern. 4 holes, again, it's going to come with the hardware to get it mounted, it's also going to come with the rubber boots for the wire connection points protecting the terminals or the posts, and the ring terminals from the elements. Measuring the separation center-on-center between these holes, we're looking at 4 7/8 inch going in this direction, and going in this direction we're looking at pretty close to 3 inches. The wench itself is going to weigh around 18 pounds. It's going to give is an overall length from edge to edge, of about 12 3/4 of an inch, overall width from edge to edge of about 4 1/2 inches, and overall height of 4 3/4 of an inch. Now when it comes to the line pull, and the line speed, the rating is going to be given with the first layer of rope on the drum. So with no load, we're looking at 22.2 feet per minute. That's going to draw 25 amps at 12 volts. With it at max load, which is 3000 lbs, we're looking at 6.7 feet per minute, at 230 amps at 12 volts. A really nice heavy duty wench, it's going to come with owner's manuals and instructions to help you get it all set up. It's also going to come with zip ties to secure an excess wiring you may have. That's going to do it for today's look at part number CU123529.

Review from a similar Cub in Electric Winch

I’ve had this winch on an 03 Polaris sportsman 700 for a year, and so far I’ve been very pleased with it. Bought it to use with a snowplow and it worked like a champ all through last winter. Has also worked on anything I’ve needed to use it for, i.e. pulling logs, pulling out the stuck garden tractor, etc. no complaints so far, works every time.


Review from a similar Cub in Electric Winch

This was the product that most closely matched the high end original winch on my Polaris ATV. The same design, dimensions and bolt pattern allowed an easy swap out. Primary use will be operation as snowplow lift. The ease of swap out slowed as I used my original mounting plate assembly that may have been thicker than a replacement. I required mounting bolts 1/4 longer than the supplied hardware.
I would recommend this as an affordable replacement winch, completed plowing and pleased with my choice.


Review from a similar Cub in Electric Winch

Still going strong, have used more times than I want to admit. It has saved us over and over. Love the synthetic rope over the wire version I had prior to this.


Review from a similar Cub in Electric Winch

Exactly what I was looking for. The 1 bad thing is battery cable is too short but I can extend.

  • Winch Recommendation for Pulling Ford F-150 up 40 Degree Tilt Trailer
    You would want at least a 3,000 lb winch for your tilt trailer. At 40 degrees a 3,000 lb winch can pull 6,428 lb which would be a comfortable capacity for an F-150. The Come Up Winch # CU123529 would be a great option as it has a 3k capacity like needed. I attached a review video for more info as well.

  • What Winch To Use For 1000lb Loads
    If your lifts are 1000lbs you would want at least a 1200lb winch # BDW74FR. Since they are on wheels it wouldn't be a dead load dragging across the ground, but if you plan on dragging them across anything other than a garage floor I would get a heavier winch like # CU123529. These are all 12 V DC motors so you would have to have it hooked up to a battery. We do not sell 110 V winches.
