New Horn Alpha 9.5 Fast Winch from Autria


some buddies made a first test with the new Horn 9.5 Fast Winch from Austria.
It comes with a 6.5 HP series wounds engine and 110:1 gears.

click me

All winches were mounted on Suzuki Samurais 413.
They tested the following winches:
Warn 8274, Horn Alpha 9.5 Fast, China 12.000 lbs (i have such a winch), Warn M8000. All winches had synthetic rope from

The results:

Winching up a 50' steep hill:

Warn 8274: 1 min. 25 sec.
Horn Alpha 9.5 Fast: 1 min. 17 sec.
China 12.000 lbs: 2 min. 46 sec.
Warn M8000: 4 min. 36 sec.

Spooling 85' of winch line on hard ground that goes only a bit up:

Warn 8274: 1 min. 29 sec.
Horn Alpha 9.5 Fast: 1 min. 44 sec.
China 12.000 lbs: 3 min. 50 sec.
Warn M8000: 5 min. 58 sec.

My winch cost only 300$ and was faster than a 600$ Warn M8000. That was nice to see...
My next winch will be a Horn Alpha 9.5 Fast. Itīs about as fast as a Warn 8274, but it costs only 1000$ instead of 1500$ for the Warn 8274.
I can buy the Horn Alpha 9.5 Fast for about 700$ without failead, winch line, solenoid, cables, bolts.
