https://youtu.be/uikNqlkZwt8The Hornet is the ultimate choice when it comes to the best competition electric winch for your vehicle. It has been designed with the competition in mind and has many features ideally suited to high performance motorsport events.
The winch body is CNC machined from high grade heat treated aerospace aluminium from solid billets. With its air free spool and air brake system the Hornet offers control and reliability previously unavailable on a winch to the off-road and motorsport sectors.
The Hornet can give you speeds of 40m/min (131ft/min) for the standard 12v model, and 60m/min (197ft/min) with the Hornet ‘Overdrive’ gear-set giving you a choice so you have the power and speed when you need it. You can also over-volt the winch motors (24v onto 12v Motors) with the RED Supercharger kit.
The electrical power of this winch is supplied by our top end ultimate winch motor, the OX motor. The high power Albright solenoid packs are used to switch direction of the motors and to also provide a feed to the air solenoid for the brake system.
The drive onto the drum is mechanically provided by a solid steel hardened clutch plate. This is a very tough hardened plate that engages via spring pressure and disengages using an air supply (Air Free-spool). The clutch plate is driven from the gearbox by a solid steel central shaft. The drive system has been built for strength and durability. When not engaged the ‘free-spool’ of the Hornet drum is only between two roller bearings so it extremely free moving allowing the co-driver to run freely with the rope.
The gearbox has been specifically designed for strength, power and ease of service. All gears are manufactured from 655-M13 nickel chromium molybdenum steel and case hardened to give maximum strength (1100 N/mm²) and excellent durability. Straight cut gears provide strength where its most needed.
