Warn Endurance 12.0|
Sometimes the best ideas are sitting in front of you and you just don?t recognize it? at first. For years Warn would do their winch development and testing with outside (cooler) air blowing across the motor to keep it cool for testing. Eventually it came to the developers; why not attach a blower to keep the motor cool and thereby create virtually a 100% duty cycle winch*.
*Due to the high heat created by an electrical motor they can only be ran for a limited amount of time ? the duty cycle. By keeping a winch cooled with outside (much cooler) air this winch becomes virtually 100% duty cycle.
