Carbon Winches Warranty -

  • Lifetime Mechanical Warranty
  • 5 Year Electrical Warranty
  • 5 Year Water Ingress Protection Warranty

Winch Design Features

  • 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

Carbon Winch History

In conclusion you can be rest assured of the history of the brand. Carbon Winches was designed, engineered and tested prior to market release by an Australian Offroad Business - KPD Industries. A 4 year project began in 2012 to build a winch that would surpass all market options that were available at the time. After that, the Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability, toughness and has been tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including the USA, Iceland and the Middle East.

But in addition, we didn't stop there - We made the winch even better. 

Many other products on the market simply didn't prove worthy in the Australian Outback including some very popular world renowned brands, so we built our own. A strong following in the Australian market developed with proven results across thousands of customers and 5 years on the market. A full redesign of the winch over a 6 month period between January  and June 2021, results in the V2 CW-12K, a culmination of 5 years of using, supplying and receiving feedback from our customers and dealer network as we improved on many aspects of the original market proven winch design.

There are no conditions on maintaining your IP Warranty. However we would like you to understand the following information about your winch to get the best out of it in the long term.

The rubber lip seals on the winch rope drum are a wear item, they are subject to exposure to the elements and abrasive materials such as mud, sand, salt, dirt and other environmental contaminants and will wear out with use of your winch.

We recommend you replace the drum lip seals every 12 months or as often as you feel necessary dependant on the use of your winch. These are available for sale on the website.

This will ensure that your winch maintains its high standard of waterproofing and provide you with years of hassle free operation. 

We highly recommend you download and read the maintenance and first use guideline document before installing and operating your winch.

After that, the Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability, toughness and has been tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including the USA, Iceland and the Middle East.

But in addition, we didn't stop there - We made the winch even better. 

Many other products on the market simply didn't prove worthy in the Australian Outback including some very popular world renowned brands, so we built our own. A strong following in the Australian market developed with proven results across thousands of customers and 5 years on the market. A full redesign of the winch over a 6 month period between January  and June 2021, results in the V2 CW-12K, a culmination of 5 years of using, supplying and receiving feedback from our customers and dealer network as we improved on many aspects of the original market proven winch design. 

Carbon Winches was designed, engineered and tested prior to market release by an Australian Offroad Business - KPD Industries. A 4 year project began in 2012 to build a winch that would surpass all market options that were available at the time. The Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability, toughness and has been tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including the USA, Iceland and the Middle East.

Protecting your winch from water ingress:

There are no conditions on maintaining your IP Warranty. However we would like you to understand the following information about your winch to get the best out of it in the long term.

The rubber lip seals on the winch rope drum are a wear item, they are subject to exposure to the elements and abrasive materials such as mud, sand, salt, dirt and other environmental contaminants and will wear out with use of your winch.

We recommend you replace the drum lip seals every 12 months or as often as you feel necessary dependant on the use of your winch. These are available for sale on the website.

This will ensure that your winch maintains its high standard of waterproofing and provide you with years of hassle free operation. 

We highly recommend you download and read the maintenance and first use guideline document before installing and operating your winch.
