Warn 86260 VR12000 Winch


This is another high quality, go anywhere and very powerful winch very much in the same school as the Smittybilt we discussed a little earlier. This winch is also able to generate the 9,500 Pounds of pulling power, this time however for a 5.2 Horsepower motor, testament to the excellent gears mounted in this model that squeeze every last drop of power from that motor.

Control is via an ergonomic hand held control with a 12-foot lead, and the motor and all sensitive parts are safely tucked away behind 100% waterproof housing. This is a really well designed bit of kit.

The stainless steel rollers are another nice feature, they provide near 360 degrees of rolling surface ensuring the feed out and retraction action of the cable is nice and smooth.

Slightly higher priced than the similar Smittybilt but packing a lot of useful features in a very well designed package, this is a very attractive option.
