The winches of the X-Power series are the new top products from T-MAX for the off-road vehicle market and are the first choice for the demanding user. The consistent further development in every detail makes the winch visually special, for example the striking upper cross brace ensures increased stability.
The winch motor, gearbox, drum and control box are sealed to IP68. Not only does this mean that the winch is protected from the ingress of sand and dust, but that it can also be used permanently submerged.
The more powerful motors, in conjunction with the new and highly efficient 3-stage planetary gear, ensure a rope speed that is up to 20% higher than the winches of the Improved Offroad Series, depending on the version and load. And with less power consumption. Especially when the cable winch is fully integrated into the vehicle and installed behind the bumper, access to the freewheel lever is often difficult or impossible. Then the rope must also be unwound electrically and a higher rope speed is very advantageous.
The cable brake has also been revised and the noise reduced.
Like all T-MAX cable winches, the winches in the X-Power series also come with a fully integrated relay module (ISM, Integrated Solenoid Module), now in its 4th generation. Developed and manufactured according to military and commercial requirements, it ensures the reliable operation of the cable winch for many years. Silver plated relay contacts reduce contact resistance, voltage losses and temperature. Due to the integrated design, the number of components, screw contacts and wiring is significantly reduced compared to a conventional relay box, thus eliminating many sources of error. The service life is ten times longer than that of 3rd generation relay boxes.
All winches are supplied with a comfortable 3.7 m long cable remote control. A convenient wireless remote control can be retrofitted very easily using Plug&Play.
The X-Power Series winches are available with steel cable and roller fairlead or synthetic Dyneema® plastic cable with aluminum fairlead.
All T-MAX cable winches are checked for their performance on a special test bench before delivery. This ensures that only faultless products leave the factory.
