CLACKAMAS, Ore.--(AutomotiveWire)--July 30, 2002
Warn Industries introduced today a new generation of winches for off-roaders that take their vehicles to the limit.
Responding to customer need, WARN engineers have designed the new and powerful WARN(R) 9.5ti Thermometric winch for extreme duty. It combines a massive sealed protective structure with a sophisticated thermal motor feedback sensor.
"We are very excited to introduce the new WARN 9.5ti since it is simply the best winch on the market today with advanced features and incredible performance," said Thomas Giacomini, Chief Operating Officer for Warn Industries. "The 9.5ti has a brand new look and structure to match today's vehicle styles and it is constructed to withstand the toughest terrain and winching while providing vital user information. Unfortunately, for all our current WARN winch owners it will definitely mean time to trade up for the new 9.5ti."
The WARN 9.5ti Thermometric provides 9500 pounds of pulling capacity. Its alloy housing is sealed at key points for superior water/environmental resistance and provides a shield for the motor wiring. Its high gloss, chip resistant powder coat finish over chromate coating provides excellent corrosion resistance. Adding to the new winch design is a new indexed connector for the hand-held remote control and an easy-to-use clutch lever.
Internally, the 9.5ti Thermometric winch features the WARN exclusive multi-segment CAM actuated brake, a new Gen II Bosch motor and a rugged 3-stage planetary gear train reduction system. A premier WARN feature is the new motor-mounted thermal sensor which relays instantaneous temperature information to the hand-held winch remote to provide instant operator feedback while the winch is in operation.
