Champion workhorse for heavy-duty winching. 3-stage planetary gear train combined with a 4.6hp series wound motor produce 12,000 lbs. of pulling power. Design is low profile so it fits where you want it.
Funny thing about a winch, it's the greatest insurance policy to have in the middle of nowhere. But you hate to pull it out for yourself, that's like accepting defeat. I have friends that have had thier Warn Winch for more then 20 years. And every time they need it, it works perfectly. That's pretty comforting to know.

I have a 25+ year old Jeep warn wench i have mounted to a bracket on the rear of my pickup to the 2" hitch. The 1 gage hot wire goes to my battery positive terminal.Is there a negative wire or is the ground the contact with the hitch/frame? Thanks JIM S

You should have a ground that goes onto the side of the motor. There is a flat spot machined for the cable. The hitch is a bad ground as it can move and not make contact.

Do you sell a winch cover for the Warn M12000?
Bruce from Richmond CA on
Hello Bruce and thank you for your question! We do sell a winch cover for the Warn M12000 Self-Recovery Winch depending on how the winch is mounted on your vehicle.

what does "self recovery" mean?

Thank you for the question. Self Recovery means to "extract" or "remove" yourself without outside assistance.
In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
