pity the UK seller is taking the hit n miss with the price....790 for a 300 quid winch...OUCH.

dutycalc shows you don't pay VAT on it from USA either, is that because it is classed as a safety item?

cheers

I've had to pay VAT, duty & handling fees. I'm still waiting for the VAT cert to see the breakdown, but we have had to pay all the usual b0ll0cks. They work out around 456 each all in, give or take a few coppers. I'm waiting for the paperwork to arrive to make sure FedEx don't do their usual & hit me for some other "fees".

I've had chance to give them a quick once over & they are a hefty bit of kit at around 20kg. They are typical American build; utilitarian, chunky & ugly as sin
