Premium electric winch from Driver Recovery Products; rated for single-line pulls up to 12,000 pounds. An upgraded direct-current (12-volt DC) motor delivers maximum torque. The series-wound motor allows consistent power through the duty cycle as opposed to magnet motors that may falter when they heat up. The motor is reversible so the cable can be wound out or in. Components of the three-stage planetary gear system are precisely manufactured for efficient operation to eliminate slippage and wear. A lever on top of the winch allows easy engaging and disengaging from the drum. When disengaged, the drum will freespool, meaning the rope can be pulled without the motor. When engaged, the drum is secured to the motor using a sliding ring gear clutch. An automatic breaking system locks the rope in place to hold the load when power is not applied. The rope is extremely durable, abrasion-resistant 3/8″ aircraft-quality wire (85′) wrapped around a 2-1/2″ diameter x 9-5/8″ long drum. The roller fairleads use wave washers and c-clips to secure the rollers, and dowel-pin bearings and composite bushings on the multi-directional rollers mean smooth operation even at extreme angles. A hand held wired remote control with 12′ cord allows for operation at a distance. The winch is easy to install; mount the control box on the winch, connect the pre-terminated wires to the motor, mount the winch, connect the power, and ground. It measures 21-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ (9-1/4″ high with control box top-mounted), & weighs 90 pounds. Industry standard 10″ x 4-1/2″ mounting bolt pattern. Included is the LD12-PRO winch, a solenoid control box, 85′ of pre-wound 3/8″ cable, premium roller fairlead, wired controller (12′ cord), 3/8″ clevis slip hook with latch (grade 70), hook safety pull strap, manual, mounting hardware, 72″ power wire (2 gauge red, pre-attached), and 72″ ground wire (2 gauge black).
