Not A Bird or A Plane—It’s Superwinch

December 2017 Products, News DT Staff

If you want an idea for how confident Superwinch is the strength and reliability of their new EXP series winches, maybe the eight patents they filed on the new features will set your mind at ease. For example, all electrical and electronic components are integrated into an aluminum housing, and the most critical electronics are fully potted to ensure long life and reduce corrosion. Superwinch uses this same method to build winches for the U.S. military, so it’s tried and tested. Other features include a three-stage planetary gearing and high-torque series wound motor; an auto-engage clutch that re-engages the gears at the tap of the winch controller; auto-off functionality with an integrated timer to conserve battery power; a wired vibrating remote with 15-foot cable; a built-in wireless receiver for use with the optional wireless remote; two 60-amp fused auxiliary power ports to run lights or air compressors; two integrated Picatinny rails to mount lights, cameras, etc.; warning lights to alert you to abnormally high amp draw/overloading conditions; and blue LED task lighting on sockets and power ports for night operation.

The EXP winches are designed specifically for use with synthetic rope and are available in 8,000-, 10,000-, and 12,000-pound load ratings with your choice of steel cable or synthetic rope and a hawse or roller fairlead. The winches have a limited lifetime warranty on mechanical parts and a five year warranty on electrical components.
