Warn Industries Introduces New Rock Crawling Winch

Warn 9.0Rc winchLas Vegas, NV (Nov. 1, 2005) - Building on the success of its 9.0R professional rock crawling winch, Warn Industries today introduced the new 9.0Rc winch targeted to the growing number of rock crawling vehicles.

Like its professional counterpart, the 9.0Rc is a short-drum, 9,000-lb. winch that features a 4.8 hp Series Wound Motor for fast line speeds and long duty cycles. An exclusive, multi-segment Cam Actuated Brake gives positive operator control during winching. Overall weight of the unit is just 54 lbs.

The 9.0Rc resembles the 9.0R with its Chromate Gloss Red Paint for superior corrosion resistance and comes standard with 50’ of 3/8” diameter synthetic rope. Other features include: a rugged, 360-degree swivel hook and thimble; a polished aluminum hawse fairlead; and a Ballistic Nylon Sliding Sleeve that provides extra rope protection against abrasion and wear.

The new winch also comes with Warn Industries’ restyled remote control, which has a built-in flashlight and WARN S2 (Smart Sense) features such as an intuitive rocker switch and high-impact polymer grip.

“Rock crawling is growing tremendously and the new 9.0Rc is designed for drivers looking for a lightweight winch that gives optimal performance,” said Dave Burns, Warn Industries’ Vice President of Truck and SUV.

Warn Industries built a limited number of 9.0R winches last January for qualified professional rock crawling competitors. The short-drum, 9,000-lb. winch more than proved its worth and became the No. 1 winch in rock crawling by compiling 32 wins during the 2005 season.
