When you go off-road, you need to take all of the gear and equipment necessary to get out of common predicaments. For any type of recovery operation, a solid winch is a must-have.
There are currently three types of Warn winches:
There are two main things that you need to look for when selecting a winch.
If you are shopping for Warn winches for trucks and Jeeps that will be off-roading frequently, you will want a mid-range winch model, such as the Warn M8000. The M8000 can handle up to 8,000 pounds and has a lower gear.
Those looking for extreme power and pulling capacity should consider any Warn model specifically designed for rock crawling. These can handle more than 9,000 pounds and are self-recovery winches for heavy-duty use. A popular example of this model would be the 9.0RC Rock Crawling Winch.
Warn winches are also available exclusively for ATVs. Smaller ATVs can get away with light-duty winches like the Warn RT15, which can pull up to 1,500 pounds. Heavy-duty Warn ATV winches are also available in RT30 and XT30 models and can move up to 3,000 lb.
