The EFS Recon R13 winch, in particular, is a stand-out, with the boffins at EFS spending more than two years developing and perfecting the big-bopper.
With a 13,000lb (5900kg) rated single-line pull, the Recon electric winch is among the top of its class in terms of capacity. It includes a full load automatic brake and a 265:1 gear ratio, while the 6.0-horsepower electric motor is waterproof (as is the gearbox).
The 25m, 18,000lb, 10mm-diameter, syntuff synthetic multistrand rope is abrasion resistant and includes anti-bind technology.
The full load auto brake is designed specifically to work with synthetic rope and this, combined with the gearbox’s three-stage zinc-plated, hardened planetary gears ensures a virtually indestructible winch. Operation is via a wired remote (with 3.6m lead) or a wireless unit.
The Recon winch was put through its paces by the All 4 Adventure team. James Don, EFS 4X4 Accessory Marketing manager, explained: “We knew if it comes back with flying colours with them – and they are just brutal on gear – we are on a winner.”
“We had no problems,” James said of the winch testing. “With previous suppliers, they’ve had to replace many winches – they didn’t have to replace the Recon at all, so that’s a really good thing.”
Initially, the Recon winch will be available for all popular dual-cab 4x4 utes and Toyota’s Land Cruiser 200 Series.
