    I'm guessing....but don't the "new" style motors have 'HS' on the part #? Plus the HP rating is listed higher...

    I think that most of their 8K lb and up winches got the new 4.5 HP motor. There's probably a contact link on their web site at <a target="_blank" href=http://www.warn.com>www.warn.com</a> where you could ask them for sure. (Or maybe Igor will see this thread. He's lucky enough to actually WORK at Warn!) [​IMG] I've found that Warn's tech support folks are very helpful. The new motors are made by Bosch, so there may be an identifying label somewhere on the motor itself.
