Superwinch EXP S102733 – 8000 Capacity – Wire Rope
I didn’t see it immediately mentioned so I thought I would ask. What model is this specifically?
What kind of housing does this make use of?
It uses a centered integrated solenoid housing. The S logo over the drum is where it is located.
What kind of clutch does this have? I have heard that some will clutch for you.
Yes. You are in luck. The product you are looking at will auto-engage the clutch. You only have to tap your controller and your winch goes into gear. You do not have to walk back to your winch.
I see that the video to the right mentions an advanced seal for electronics. What can you tell me about that?
The IP rating is IP69. It means that it is protected from sprays and splashes from all directions. It is a very high rating that means that your winch is pretty well protected against the elements. In fact, IP69 is listed against “steam jet cleaning”. The 6 has to do with solids and the 9 has to do with liquids. The 6 means that it is dust tight and protected from contact. You can read more about the ratings by clicking here. Superwinch took lessons it learned from creating products for the US military and brought them back to their consumer products.
What other special things should I know about?
The remote will vibrate if the unit is overheating or if there is an amp draw that could be dangerous. The LED lights will also turn to a flashing red and then to bright LED lights. You can also make the remote wireless if you chose to upgrade.
