There are two versions of this winch, a 9500 and a 12k (mid frame). Pricing on the 9.5 looks to be around $1450.00 out the door (this is not set in stone). Weight: Contrary to looks, the PowerPlant weighs about 90 lbs minus fairlead, remote, etc. This compares to about 80 lbs for a 9.5ti. Compressor specs: Air flow at 90 psi is about 5 cfm which is over double that of many compressors on the market under $1000. The most applicable pressure to judge against is 60 psi. which is the head pressure of a Schrader valve (filling a tire at “0 psi” still equates to a 60 psi head due to the valve). The PowerPlant flow at this head is approximately 6.5 cfm which will fill a 35” tire from dead flat to 30 psi in under two minutes. Control: A pressure switch is included with the winch. This allows you to achieve 100 psi in the intercooler and/or a vehicle mounted tank and hold it at pressure (refills upon use). Many DC compressor units on the market today will simply run until you turn them off, they stall, or they blow a pressure relief. This winch is controlled with a contactor rather than four individual solenoids. Sealing: Product is equipped with the same seals, gaskets etc as our 9.5XP and 9.5 Ti units. Effect on vehicle cooling: Due to venting and cover design, the PowerPlant has negligible effect on vehicle cooling Pricing: In most cases, separate winch and compressor purchases will exceed the price of the PowerPlant. This product combines two high performance products at a very competitive price. Intake: The intake point includes a 5’ intake hose with a filter that the user can mount wherever they like (preferably in a normally dry place under hood, etc). The air unit is sealed as well. As with any winch product it is not recommended for submersion. Weatherproof rather than waterproof.
