Serious off-road enthusiasts can attest to the fact that there are times when a reliable winch would have surely been useful. Maybe you've been stuck in knee deep mud or have had to deal with a friend's rig that just couldn't get over an obstacle. Any all-terrain lover knows that you're probably going to need that winch sooner or later. Smittybilt winches are made to tackle any situation that comes your way.
If you're looking for power and affordability, then the Smittybilt winches in the XRC line are a great choice. Ranging from 8,000- to 15,000-lb line-pull ratings, you'll be able to overpower any obstacle with ease. The planetary gear system ensures that you can pull heavy loads quickly and efficiently. Even the lowest model in this series, XRC 8, comes standard with a remote control, wire loom, and heavy duty handlebar rocker switch. The XRC series combines a low price point with high power and quality engineering.
Smittybilt winches for ATVs are compact and powerful. They range from 3,000- to 4,000-lb line-pull ratings. ATV winches are fully equipped with a permanent magnet motor and a 136:1 gear ratio that makes it ideal for heavy duty use. These winches are designed and built with off-roading in mind, giving you enough power to clear most predicaments found on the trail. Installation is also simple, as the kit includes the hardware necessary to mount the winch to your ATV or UTV.
The X20 line of Smittybilt winches offer many of the same performance specifications of the XRC series, except the internal components are sealed in a water-tight assembly. This makes the X20 winch perfect for vehicles that routinely explore wet, muddy, or swampy areas, or those that regularly cross active rivers, streams, and other bodies of water. The winch’s 500-amp solenoid is packed into a waterproof casing that is top-rated to protect against both moisture and dirt. The X20 line includes winches with a line-pull capacity between 8,000 and 15,000 lb, along with a roller fairlead, a wired remote control switch, and a tough steel recovery line. The key to the X20’s durability in wet conditions is Smittybilt’s patented amphibious technology, which keeps the winch’s motor cranking in any environment.
