Smittybilt 97495 XRC Winch


I’m sorry to hear that your aircraft carrier has got stuck in the mud, but luckily I’ve got my Warn 86260 Electric Winch equipped. We’ll have you out in a moment.

Ok, you may not get called on to rescue the USS Gerald Ford (can’t believe he got a aircraft carrier named after him) but you will be equipped for just about anything else because this winch has phenomenal pulling power.

Naturally the powerful motor is the star of the show here, but it’s worth pointing out that power is driven through a three stage planetary gear train, which really helps deliver smooth power. The braking system is also well designed, which helps to keep you in control at all times.

Operation is via hand held remote control which comes with a 12 foot lead for ease of use and the winch comes with 93 meters of high quality steel cable which should be ample for nearly any situation you find yourself in.

It’s not cheap (and is in fact the most expensive item on the list) but it still comes in at well under 1,000 dollars which, given the pull power, is a pretty good deal.
