Big trucks need powerful winches. And the WARN Heavyweight Series fits the bill, and then some, with capacities up to 16,500 lbs. Plus the heavy-duty carrier plates can withstand the brutal, gear-train stresses that recovering heavy loads can generate.

Please Note: This product requires a compatible bumper or mounting plate to be properly mounted to your vehicle. Please check dimensions and mounting data to confirm fitment prior to ordering.


Massive torque, 12,000 lbs. of pulling power, and a fast, no-load retrieval speed give the M12 and M12-S the ideal combination of heavy-duty capacity and high performance. If you’ve got a big truck and are looking for a true workhorse, then these winches are for you.
