Thunder 12500lb Winch Description
Water-proof planetary gearbox with a 6.8 horsepower motor offers high power, with lower current draw. Thicker torsion bars help alleviate the risk of your winch binding up in high torque situations. Supplied with Dyneema® rope, clevis gook, a wired and wireless remote and standard fairlead, the Thunder winches can be operated in the most adverse conditions. A winch mounting bracket is available for mounting to aluminium bull bars or where additional chassis support is required.
Available in 11mm x 24m and 9.5mm x 26m to suit different sized winches, Dyneema® rope adds improved safety over wire cable by not recoiling back at the vehicle should it break under load, but instead dropping to the ground almost immediately. It also floats in water and will not rust. If replacing wire cable with Dyneema® rope, you must update your fairlead to suit synthetic rope to avoid rope being caught between the rollers.
The Thunder standard and offset hawse fairleads are essential if using a synthetic rope as they avoid rope being caught between the rollers of fairleads designed for wire cable. The offset fairlead is designed to suit bar mounted winches.
In the unlikely event of a rope, cable or strap snapping, the damper will act as a brake and absorb the energy from the recoil. In effect this means the cable will drop to the ground instead of flying back into a vehicle or person. It has long velcro strips to hold it in place, reflective strips for increased visability and weighs 1.1kg, which meets 4WD competition standards.
Whether using cable or rope in your recovery, you should always use quality leather gloves to prevent burns and hand damage.
