This Lowline single motor winch is a great high performance compact lowline electric winch, capable of being used in the most demanding conditions.
The Explorer2 is an excellent choice when it comes to the best electric winch for your on-road or off-road vehicle.
RED Winches has designed and developed this winch for serious use and is just as happy on a road going Chelsea Defender as it is on a challenge truck.
All products at RED winches have been through an extensive design and testing program before going on sale so you can use all our winches with confidence they will not let you down.
This Explorer like all our engineered winches has the famous RED Winch air brake system, meaning the winch stops instantly when you take your finger off the button.
The winch is controlled from a sealed black control box, that can be mounted on the winch or remotely in your engine bay or under your seat if you so wish.
Like all of our electric winches we can supply with either 12v or 24v motor and solenoid.
Capable of pulling 7,500kg this winch can easily get you out of trouble quickly, quietly and with minimum effort time and time again.
The winch body is CNC machined from high grade heat treated aluminium from solid billets.
We only use the best machine tools and machining processes to ensure stress is kept to a minimum and strength to its maximum.
The drum is steel in construction and can accept 30m of 11mm synthetic rope
Attaching the rope to the drum is done using a plasma lock.

As with all our winches, the Explorer2 winch does not come with a rope, this has to be purchased separately.
THE AIR BRAKE SYSTEM
Spring pressure applies a steel disc to the brake material when the winch is not in use.
This applies the brake and stops the winch from spooling out, its a fail safe system.
If you have loss of power or air, the winch will stop and hold the weight of your vehicle
When you winch in or out you energise your Albright solenoid this also energises the air solenoid valve for the brake. This then allows air to go into a specially designed chamber that releases the brake instantly. When you remove your winching finger from the controls the air solenoid dumps the air and the springs apply the brake disc onto the brake pads.
One nice feature we strongly recommend is when you are lowering out you can switch your isolator off to the winch (no power to the motors) and just flick the winch out button / rocker switch. This fires the air solenoid and releases the brake and your vehicle only pulls out rope for the amount of drop your vehicle needs or moves. This means compared to normal winching you do not get overrun or excess rope causing snatching and jerking as the vehicle takes up the slack rope that has been spooled out.
We would expect a set of brake pads to last at least 24 months under regular use due to the material they are made from.
Brake pad sets and all spare parts can be ordered if needed.
