Warn Magnum winch revealed at SEMA

WARN have just brought out a new line of winches, so where better to show them off than at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

“We’re really excited to debut these winches here, the coolest thing about these is we’ve switched over to waterproof Albright contactors throughout the Magnum line-up,” said Andy Lilienthal, Warn USA.

The Warn winches mount feet-down with their medium frame configuration, and are made from a single-cast aluminium piece that is said to add structural integrity and help decrease noise. Like the previous Zeon winches, the Magnum’s control packs can be taken off and relocated.

Finished in a new black paint, the new models feature a tie-rod design and incorporate a tie plate which is said to help stop the rope from bunching up; allowing it to spool evenly.

Lilienthal explained that all Magnum winches now have a cone brake as opposed to a spring brake, which can be found in cheaper winches. “This ensures that the winch will hold the rated load of the winch every time.”

Styling has also been updated, with a new clutch lever and power lead featured.

The Magnum winches are available in 10,000lbs (4535kg) and 12,000lbs (5443kgs) capacities, with both steel and synthetic cable options. Local pricing and specifications are yet to be confirmed.
