    Found an old rusty Warn 9000. It used to be on a boat trailer. It is a few simbolic bugs cheap. I know already that it needs a new cable, maybe I need to open up the motor to service it. Now, is this a deal or should i leave it?

    I have an HS9500i an it has been great! I hear alot of good stories about Wans service especially with older winches!! The only thing you may want to watch is if it was used around salt water alot. The salt could have done some corroding.. I would open it up.

    Oh, did I mention it is a 24volt version. Is that better?

    Hmmm... To run that with a 12 volt system would require a lot of work... Hmmm..

    No problem. A solonoid and an extra battery will put it on 24Volts. That is not a problem. But is the 24Volt version faster or anything?

    Ya, I wasn't thinking of that... I dont htink the 24v is any faster.... I think it is just made to work with the 24volt systems.

    Here is data from Warn fo rtheir M12000 winch:

    12V DC PERFORMANCE SPECS:

    Ft./min.(M/min.)
    30(9.14)
    14(4.27)

    6.92(2.11)
    5.80(1.77)
    4.39(1.34)
    3.86(1.18)

    Motor
    Current
    67 amps
    140 amps
    210 amps
    250 amps
    320 amps
    370 amps
    440 amps


    24V DC PERFORMANCE SPECS:



    Line Speed
    Ft./min.(M/min.)
    31.4(9.57)
    11.7(3.57)
    9.5(2.90)

    The line speed is a little faster(except @ 2K lbs.) on the 24V version and it pulls less Amps.....

    It's better from the point that each 12V battery is only sourcing half the current(AMPS&gt;)
    And the motor should last longer.
    You might what to check with Warn for the date code, and if its less than half the new price
    it is worth it.
