Thinking of buying the Carbon Winch? Read here to find out more and why you should consider a Carbon Winch as the best winch to use in Australia.

Carbon Winch 12k 12000lb Electric 4x4 Winch - Version 2 2021 Model Now Available IP68 waterproof

The lightest electric winch for 4x4s on the market. 

Save weight on your winch, stay legal and under your GVM when all government authorities are cracking down on overloaded vehicles. 

The Carbon 12000lb winch is the lightest winch on the market for its performance and size. We achieve this by using superior design, lightweight (more expensive) materials than our competitors and manufacturing techniques that allow high strength through good design. 

Sure you can buy a cheap winch made from scrap yard steel or you can buy a Carbon CW-12k where steel is only used on internal high load components. All external items on the winch are either cast or CNC machined billet alloys. The winch will not rust or prematurely age. 

The V2 CW-12K, was released in July 2021. It was a culmination of 5 years of experience supplying our V1 winch of which we made many small upgrades along the way with the help of our wider community offering feedback and suggestions. 

The Key points about our new upgraded V2 12000lb winch: 

  • Designed by an Australian offroad business for the harsh Aussie and international conditions
  • Fully sealed to resist water, dirt and dust ingress into motor, drum and gearbox mechanisms. Ver.2 series was upgraded to IP68 ingress protection.
  • 12000lb pulling power with a fast line pull ratio of 216:1 using a triple planetary gear set 
  • 6.2HP series wound 12 volt electric motor (24 volt option)
  • The Battery Isolator Switch supplied with the kit must be installed. Would you have a non-isolated or fused battery cable running to the back of your vehicle for towing or other Auxiliary uses? No. The winch is the same, it's power feed must be isolated to protect you and your car in the event of a multitude of unforeseen circumstances that can occur, such as a frontal accident, an unfused 500 amp cable can catch fire extremely fast when shorted out against a body component.
  • Wireless remote control unit with a lanyard- FULLY SEALED RECEIVER UNIT built into the control box. Simple to activate by holding both buttons down for 3 seconds to activate the remote control and turns off after 90 seconds of inactivity. 
  • The rotating ring gear clutch design is used for easy low drag free spool. This is arguably the easiest winch to free spool on the market. 
  • Electroplated planetary gear sets for long life
  • 3 layer membrane breather unit pre-fitted to the electric motor to allow condensation to evaporate and equalise pressure during heat cycles.
  • Multi Fit Fairlead- there is no need to worry about which suits your bullbar! Simply install as standard fitment or move up to offset the rope outlet by 20mm. 
  • All other internals are fully zinc electroplated for corrosion protection.
  • High performance motor brushes with copper impregnated contacts and corrosion plated brush mounts.
  • Smooth ball bearing motor operation with a fully balanced motor armature for superior performance.
  • Utilising a hoist style brake unit mounted to the drum end plate, this provides superior holding power by applying mechanical braking through the gear train with no heat generated in the drum. With no contact to the drum means there is no risk of heat damage to the synthetic rope.
  • 4 position mounting for the control box bracket over the motor, over the drum, on top for flat mounting plates and in front of the winch for the top mounting control box when the winch is mounted vertically. Alternatively, 500mm cables allow remote mounting of the control box separately to the winch
