Smittybilt X20 SB_98512X20 Winches Have More Power And Larger Size Offerings

Never one to rest on their laurels, Smittybilt has gone back to the drawing board to make their top-of-the-line X20 winches even better. 

The waterproof, series-wound motor has been upgraded from 5.5 horsepower to 6.6 horsepower, providing the highest torque in the industry, and the new /1/” target=”_blank”>control lever is larger for easier operation with gloves.  

The motors are coupled to three stage planetary gears engineered to maximize pulling power and provide excellent line speed. 

New options include different mounting locations for the IP68-rated waterproof 500 amp solenoid and a winch controller that can be plugged into the winch or operated remotely- both standard features. 

Sizes include 10,000, 12,000, 15,500, and 17,500 pounds of pulling power to cover the full range of vehicles from Samurai to Super Duty. 

All sizes come standard with an economical steel cable and roller fairlead, and the 10k and 12k Smittybilt X20 winches are also available in COMP Edition with lightweight synthetic winch line and a low profile hawse fairlead.  

All Smittybilt X20 Gen2 winches feature an inductive braking system that generates 50% less heat in the drum when compared to traditional dynamic braking systems, so the ability to run synthetic cable is always an option for any X20 Gen2 winch.
