Winches

Ok I am in the market for a winch for my rig. Forgetting about the cost of one which is better the Warn XD9000i or the Warn XD9000. Cost doesnt matter because I am getting it cheap no matter which one.


Thanks
Mitch

Re: Winches

How much does your rig weigh. What do you see yourself getting stuck in (mud, sand, snow, etc). Use these you consider which one to buy. More expensive models usually have greater line pull and faster retreaval. You could go for the new 16.5 15000 unit that Warn has.

I'm not sure what the difference between the 2 are except for that i. Do a search and I'll bet you find out.

Re: Winches

The Difference is that the XD9000i weighs 85lbs while the XD9000 weighs 78lbs. the XD9000 also comes with 100' wire rope while the XD9000i comes with 125' wire rope. Also the XD9000i has a faster line pull when on a 24V DC power. But the XD9000 draws less amps on the 24V DC power. besides that and the price they are basicly the same except that the XD9000 has a separate control pack while the XD9000i has the control pack built into the housing.

Re: Winches

I have the xd9000i. I think its better than the 9000 cause you done have to find a place to mount the external box.

Ive used mine countless times and it hasnt let me down yet. I pulled out a f250 with 35s and mud almost to the top of them and it didnt even come close to bogging the winch down....Its got a ton of power.

Re: Winches

I would be glad to make you a bumper. It will be about 2 months before I will be able to do it. Do you want it just like mine because I can make it anyway you want it.
