Twin Motor Conversions for the Warn 8274 Winch
Dec 8, 2006
The British Land Rover specialty company, Gigglepin, has developed a conversion to install twin 6 hp Warn XP motors onto a single 8274 Warn winch. The result is twice the power and twice the speed of a conventional 8274. This winch was developed for competition but it has a lot of draw for recreational 'wheelers as well. Very, very cool.
Gigglepin can also provide a conversion that uses twin 24V Bowmotors for 24-volt applications.
Their twin-motor setup trianglates the drive train ensuring full gear-tooth contact, hence no possibility of tooth damage through partial engagement.
- Twice the power, twice the speed.
- Drive line triangalation for maximum strength.
- Decreased motor effort, saving motors and batteries.
- Sustained line rate on hard pulls.
- Higher maximum load capacity.
Gigglepin also has a video featuring their winch in action (it'll take a few seconds to load, before it starts playing):
We're not aware of their conversion being available in North America, yet, so for more information, visit Gigglepin's website: www.gigglepin4x4.net
