The Bow motor 2 6.8HP is available 12V can be universally fitted to most electric winches as long as the winch mounting can accommodate the motors additional length. Designed to provide high power & torque levels with incredible reliability & at a respectable price tag.
The Bow motor 2 as also features a low amperage draw when compared to other commonly used motors such as the Warn XP 6HP unit.
These motors offer greater high speed and mid range torque and have a faster off line retrieval speeds than the Bow Motor 1 and are similar to the Warn XP winch motor. The Bow Motor 2 is a very resilient winch motor and is favoured for “over-volting” (this is when 24v is passed through 12v motors) by many top crews including Croatia Trophy winners Wayne Smith and Jim Marsden, Malaysian Rainforest Challenge winners’ Simon Buck, Chris Abel and Steve Gittens.
The Bow 2 motor has an ‘O’ ring seal on the end cap to waterproof it and we recommend sealing the F1, F2 and A terminals with silicone sealant upon fitment.
*NOTE* Bow 2 motors will be damaged if you stall them. “Stall” is when the winch motor is still working (you can hear it) and the line is not moving – STOP WINCHING to save your motor.
The Bow 2 motors feature heavy duty copper armature windings, which are copper welded to the commutator, with highly efficient roller bearings at each end.
Four enormous long lasting brushes enable the motor to run cooler.
If fitting to the older Warn 8274 with a keyway type armature shaft, then you will also need to replace the pinion gear with the later type Splined Pinion Gear.
The Bow motor 2 produces 6.8HP @ 5000RPM.
