The performance of the X2O winch is as good as it gets, with impressive gear ratios that deliver lightning fast speeds. This heavy-duty winching system has great features at an incredible overall value. To keep the powerful 12-volt, 5.5 HP series wound motor and 3-stage planetary gearbox protected from the elements, they're completely sealed using Smittybilt' s amphibious technology. The oversized, completely waterproof, state-of-the-art 500 AMP solenoid is mounted over the winch motor but also has the versatility to be mounted over the winch motor or winch cable. All X2O winches have an IP68 Ingress Protection rating, the highest rating established by the International Electrotechnical Commission. To receive this rating, the mechanism must be completely dust tight and be able to be completely submerged with no chance of moisture intrusion. Plus, all Smittybilt winches meet SAE-J706 standard ratings for winches.
The X2O comes with T304 stainless steel handle and hardware, so you'll never have to worry about corrosion, a heat reduction end cap to prolong the life of the motor, and heavy-duty rubberized remote control with a front end magnet that makes locating and controlling the hand-held remote easier than ever. To complete the package, the winch is powdercoated black for a great appearance and durability that will last.
This winch comes with your choice of galvanized steel cable and 4-way roller fairlead or synthetic rope and aluminum fairlead. The synthetic rope is 1/7th the weight of the steel cable, and has no kinks or wire splinters to be concerned with. The rope is non-rotational and has minimal stretch characteristics, it's UV and abrasive resistant, specially coated to resist slippage on the winch drum, and comes with a replaceable hook and a protective sleeve to prevent overheating. The fairlead is manufactured from high-grade billet aluminum and designed to protect the rope from excessive wear. It reduces binding and friction caused by angled pulls, and will not fray or tangle the rope.
Comprehensive, detailed, illustrated, instructions are provided to guide you through the easy installation and operation of your winch. The X2O winch is backed by a limited 1-year warranty on electrical parts and a limited lifetime warranty on mechanical components. Both warranties are against defects in materials and workmanship.549.99
