S102735 SUPERWINCH EXP SERIES
I’ve heard this product comes with potted electronics, what does that mean?
It means that the electronics are protected against the water via a gelatinous substance that protects the electronics from water, dirt and other agents that could get into the electronics.
Does it have any other features?
Yes. It also helps protect the electronics from vibration and shock if they should encounter those situations.
So this means that it is completely waterproof?
It is smart to assume it is very water resistant but not totally waterproof. If you can avoid making contact with water then you should. You should not place this underwater to test its waterproof nature.
What kind of motor is in this thing?
It is a series wound motor.
What kind of gear ratio is this thing using?
It has a gear ratio of 154:29:1.
What the heck is a fairlead/hawse? They say it like I’m supposed to know what that is.
It is a guide for the rope or wire to go through. It helps to make sure that you do not wear out your rope and the winch from the high amounts of friction and the damage they could take from the amount of load they are asked to bear.
If I do get this then how long will the rope or the wire be?
It will be 100′ of rope or wire depending on what you ask for when you order it.
What are the rated line pulls I can choose between when I order?
You can choose between 8000, 10000, and 12000.
What the heck is a planetary gear?
It is also known as epicyclic gearing. It basically means that there are two gears and they are mounted so that the center of one of the gears revolves around the center of the other gear.
Is that the kind of gearing that this winch uses?
Yes. It uses the planetary gear system as outlined above. In actuality, however, it uses a 3-stage planetary gear system.
What is the drum diameter?
We have information that says the following: 63.4mm(tube)(Flange 6.25″) 218.5mm flange to flange. The information comes straight from the manufacturer.
