Warn Electric Winches

Warn are Australia’s largest selling electric winches for 4WD use.

They are specified by most government departments and have an excellent reputation for 4WD vehicle recovery and reliability.

Important Information:

  • Warn winches can be fitted to suitable steel or aluminium winch mount bull bars. Check with your local 4WD WORLD outlet before installing a winch. Some alloy bull bars require a steel winch mounting frame.
  • Vehicles equipped with an electric winch should be fitted with an efficient dual battery system. This allows longer periods of use in tough 4WD conditions.
  • Select a suitable unit, ie XD9000, that can be easily transferred from one 4WD to another.
  • Always use a pulley block when winching. This doubles the pulling capacity and uses more rope off the winch drum which improves the gearing, allowing maximum winching effort in all situations.
  • A portable mounting system, where the Warn electric winch in a special frame can be mounted to the front or rear of the vehicle, is now available. This is ideal for airbag equipped vehicles where a winch mount bull bar is not available to date.
  • Winches can be used under water for short periods, ie if you bog in a creek, the quickest and easiest way out is your electric winch.
  • All Warn winches have a long remote control cable enabling the driver to operate the winch from behind the steering wheel.
  • Warn electric winches are mostly planetary geared (except the 8274). This makes the units compact and lighter in weight than some other brands.

Warn XD9000

The most popular Warn electric winch. Fits most Winch mount alloy or steel bull bars. When used with a pulley block, ie double lined, it can pull most 4WDs from any situation. The central box can be mounted on the bull bar or under the bonnet if space exists. The remote control lead plugs into this unit.

The winch comes with a roller fairlead and 38 metres of 8 mm galvanised aircraft cable. A simple clutch lever engages the unit and the free wheel function allows the winch rope to be pulled off the drum quickly to facilitate a fast recovery from a river or creek.


A popular, lightweight 8,000 lb electric winch. Suitable for Hilux, Prado, Navara and other, similar size 4WDs. Economically priced and easily mounted using the most popular steel or alloy winch mount bull bars, the M8000 can be relied upon for years of hard work. It has 100 feet of cable and a roller fairlead.


The larger capacity 12 volt winch. Rated at 12,000 lb., the M12000 is designed for large 4WDs and light 4WD trucks, where the loaded weight is a key factor in the recovery from a bogged or stuck situation. It features a roller fairlead and low gearing, to facilitate maximum pulling capacity (particularly with a pulley block).


This popular model has been retained in the line-up because of its popularity. It has fast line pull and 8000 lb capacity. Fitment can be a problem due to its design not being so compact. It is also heavier than the low mount planetary gear winches.

The M8274 has 150 feet of cable and a roller fairlead for maximum winching effort when times are tough. It is used by many competitors in 4WD events such as the Ateco Warn Winch Challenge and the Outback Challenge.


This features an XD9000i in a special portable frame, that has fitment into the tow hitch (rear) or bull bar and chassis (front). This enables the unit to be used at either end of the vehicle. Electric plus wired to front and rear allow easy power connection. The solenoids and electrical controls are contained in the winch housing.


Ateco and Warn can provide a lightweight, efficient 12V winch for your farm's four wheeler. Fitting frames are available for most makes and models
