When you want the ultimate in pulling power, durability, reliability, and the diagnostic abilities of WARN’s thermometric technology, there’s really only one winch to get, the WARN 16.5ti. Its powerful series wound 4.6 hp 12V DC high-speed electric motor and smooth, reliable, and durable 3-stage planetary gear train with 315:1 gear ratio develop 16,500 lbs. of pulling capacity, enough to get the largest trucks and SUVs unstuck. And all that pulling power is housed in a large, heavy-duty structure that can withstand pull after pull. And if you get involved in a long pull and your motor gets hot, a motor-mounted temperature sensor will make the LED in the remote control blink, letting you know that continued operation could cause damage to the winch.
The 16.5ti comes with 90’ of strong 7/16” diameter steel wire rope and roller fairlead. The line speed is 23.6’ per minute under no load at 68 amps, and 3.24’ per minute at 16,500 lb. max. limit at 507 amps. You get optimal winch control with the exclusive design automatic mechanical cone brake, and the remote control with LED light has a 12’ lead. To make sure the elements stay outside and your winch stays dry and fully operational inside, WARN employs extreme-duty sealing and an aluminum control box cover for additional electronics protection. And to ensure your winch stays looking as good as it performs, a primer undercoat is applied followed by a powdercoated finish, to resist chips and corrosion.
Comprehensive installation and user instructions are supplied with the 16.5ti winch, and it’s backed by a limited lifetime warranty to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship on mechanical parts, and a limited 1-year warranty to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship on electrical components.1,936.25Brand: WARN Part Number: 68801 UPC: 012748688013

Easy to mount the winch onto the plate, and plugged right into my SUV hitch. If you have a WARN system and are planning on pulling from your hitch, this is what you are looking for.Was this review helpful for you?

This is the best basic winch you can get. Don't be fooled into buying any of the cheaper ones. Learn from my mistakes. It does what it says it does. Pulls four tons. Has paid for itself in my case with one emergency use. Had to pull and lift 2.5 tons which it did with ease. I would recommend having a snatch block and either a chain or heavy strap to give more options when needed. It is not always possible to get the truck with the winch in exactly the right spot. The snatch block allows for more choices.Was this review helpful for you?

I'll say it again, M8000 now comes with a mounting bracket so no need to order another unless you want a spare...So far I have only operated it to stretch the line. It seems everyone has one of these. One thing I should have considered- my driving habits. I know many people submerge their winches without problem and I do my fair share of water crossings.... I'm not saying don't get this if you see any water...it's just something to consider Great price for one of Warns top selling winches- lifetime warranty- Warns ultimate reliability. I'll update after more use. Aside from the winch you'll need to invest in a few things. A tree protector strap (not an ordinary tow strap), a snatch block or two (doubles your pulling capacity), shackle or two, heavy duty gloves, and a heavy blanket or jacket. You can buy a kit which includes much of what you need.Was this review helpful for you?

This Winch is fantastic... pulls almost anything with ease. Would defiantly recommend this for anyone who is thinking about a winch... save yourself the time and effort, and buy a quality product from the beginning. I know it is a little more expensive, but it is a quality product that I will stake my reputation on. P.S. Make sure you have a good Battery.Was this review helpful for you?

Lets you make a portable winch out of many utility and vehicle winches. This anchor plate is very solid, about 1/4" thick steel. Looking at the picture, I was a little concerned with how the chains connect to the anchor, but the chain connections are very solid. The chain and clevis hooks are high quality. The pre-drilled holes fit other brands of winches. About the only thing is that the hooks are not clevis hooks, they are the U type and for looping the chains onto one another, this setup is less then ideal. But the U hooks are better for connecting to pulling straps.Was this review helpful for you?

This has been worth the money thus far. It is fast, powerful and looks very nice as opposed to other winches which have solenoids and other bits seemingly glommed on to the winch. This unit is one complete, sealed piece and is much lighter than other winches in it's class (mostly due to the synthetic line). Includes everything required for a basic install unless you want to do what I did which is install the Warn quick-connect so you can easily unplug the winch and plug in jumper cables.Was this review helpful for you?

Fits pretty nice on my M8000 winch. I'd say about 90% of a custom fit. Keep in mind this is made to cover a few models so it won't be perfect, but should be better than most. I'm running a PSC bumper and skid so I needed to use longer bungee cables to wrap underneath the bumper. It will do the job and keep my winch protected. You have to remember, when you are on the highway in the rain, you have 65mph water hitting your winch and solenoid box.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
