This is the industry's best truly-sealed vehicle recovery winch assembly. All seals on the Superwinch Talon 12.5i SR Winch meet the IP67 standard, from the outermost end of the high performance motor and groundbreaking solenoid to the 2-stage planetary and 2-stage spur gearbox. The sealed 5.2 and 6.0 HP motors deliver a quick but safe 62 FPM line speed at a low 75-amp draw. Heat sink-styled motor cap maintains low temperatures under the heaviest loads. The solenoid will keep out water, mud, snow, and dust and has a patented venting feature that allows the contacts to resist water and release contact damaging internal condensation. The VS4 Solenoid (Vented, Submersible, and Stabilized with Sealed Socket) is simply the best winch solenoid in the world, and it's located inside this modern-styled rugged enclosure. The innovative "Dual-stop" 100% load holding brake design provides zero drag on cable in and is located inside the gearbox away from the drum to eliminate heat transfer to the synthetic rope. A special steel drum is constructed with high tensile strength material to resist the unique loading characteristic of the optional synthetic 3/8 in. x 80 ft. rope rated at 17,600 lb. to ensure a safe pull. There's an ergonomically shaped hand-held sealed remote with brilliant LED light for assisting in nighttime winching. The remote also meets the tough IP67 standard, which ensures water, mud, snow, and dust is kept out. The chrome plated aluminum ergo-free spool knob lifts and turns effortlessly, easily rotating in 45° increments for custom and "in bumper" applications. The laser-etched aerodynamically shaped extruded aluminum tie bars reduce weight, and the three tie-bar construction adds strength and structural rigidity between drum supports. The tie-bar bracket includes steel-lined rubber insulated mounts to stabilize the solenoid and reduce vibration and fatigue. Superwinch synthetic ropes are genuine AmSteel-Blue with Samthane, a special coating to help resist abrasion. The raw material in AmSteel-Blue is made from genuine Dyneema SK-75 HMPE fiber, "which is the worlds strongest fiber" made by Samson Rope Technologies. AmSteel-Blue is a torque-free 12-strand single braid that yields the maximum in strength-to-weight ratio and, size for size, is the same strength as steel, yet it floats. AmSteel-Blue outlasts wire 3:1, making it an excellent wire rope replacement. It has extremely low stretch and superior flex fatigue and wear resistance.
