WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING
This indicates a potentially hazardous situation, which if not avoided,could result in death or serious injury.


Your winch is a powerful piece of machinery. It is important that you understand the basics of its operation and specifications so that when you need to use it, you can use it with confidence and safety. Below is a list of the components of your winch and their use. You should practice using your winch before you are in a situation where you need to use it.

  1.  This winch is engineered for maximum line pull with only one layer of cable spooled onto the winch drum (the first layer).
  2. Motor: Your 7.1hp/7.9hp motor is powered by a 12/24 volt battery and provides power to the gear mechanism which turns the drum and winds the wire rope;
  3. Winch Drum: The winch drum is the cylinder on which the wire rope is stored. It can feed or wind the rope depending on the remote winch switch.
  4. Wire Rope (cable): Your winch has a ‘ galvanized aircraft cable designed specifically for a load capacity of 5250KGs. The wire rope feeds onto the drum in
    the “under wind” position through the roller fairlead and is looped at the end to accept the clevis hook pin.
  5. Roller Fairlead: When using the winch at an angle the roller fairlead acts to guide the wire rope onto the drum and minimize damage to the wire rope from
    abrasion on the winch mount or bumper.
  6. Mechanic Gear System: The reduction gears convert the winch motor power into extreme pulling forces.
  7. Braking System: Braking action is automatically applied to the winch drum when the winch motor is stopped and there is a load on the wire rope. A
    separate mechanical brake applies the braking action.
  8. Free Spooling Clutch: The clutch allows the operator to manually disengage (“CLUTCH OUT”) the spooling drum from the gear train, free spool. Engaging
    the clutch (“CLUTCH IN”) locks the winch into the gear system.
  9. Solenoid: Power from the vehicle battery flows through the weather-sealed switch before being directed to the winch motor.
  10. Remote Switch: The Power switch leads have a dual switch for powering in or powering out your winch drum. The Power switch leads allow you to stand clear of the wire rope when the winch is under load.

WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Intermittent use only. Allow winch to cool between uses.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Do not use winch to lift (vertically).
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Do not use winch to pull or move people in any way.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – NEVER cut, weld, or modify any part of the winch or cable.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – A minimum of five wraps of cable around the drum barrel is necessary for pulling and holding the rated load. is
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Keep yourself and others at a safe distance to the side of the cable when it is under tension.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – The wire rope may break before the motor stalls. For heavy loads at or near rated capacity, use a pulley block/snatch block to reduce the load on the wire rope.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING -Never step over a cable, or go near a cable under load (in tension).
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Don’t move the vehicle to pull a load (towing) on the winch cable. This could result in cable breakage.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING-Disconnect the remote control and battery leads or always isolate winch when not in use.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING- Avoid “shock loads” by using the control switch intermittently to take up the slack in the wire rope. “Shock loads” can far exceed the rated
capacity for the wire rope and drum.

WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING-When re-spooling the cable ensure that the cable spools are in the under-wind position with the cable entering the drum from the bottom, not the
top. To spool correctly you should keep a slight load on the cable while pushing the remote button to draw in the cable. Walk toward the winch not allowing the cable to slide through your hands. Do not let your hands get within 12 ″ of the winch while re-spooling. Turn off the winch and repeat the procedure until a few feet of cable is left. Disconnect the remote control and finish spooling by hand by rotating the drum by hand with the clutch disengaged. Keep hands clear of the fair lead and drum while the winch is under power.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Do not use it as a hoist. Do not use for overhead lifting.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Failure to heed these warnings may result in personal injury and/or property damage.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Use gloves to protect hands when handling the cable. Never let the cable slide through your hands.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconWARNING – Never connect the cable back to itself. Apply blocks to the wheels of the vehicle when on an incline. The duration of winching pulls should be kept as short as possible. If the motor becomes uncomfortably hot to the touch, stop winching immediately and let it cool down for a few minutes. Do not pull for more than one minute at or near the rated load.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconCAUTION – If the motor stalls do not maintain power to the winch. Electric winches are designed and made for intermittent use and should not be used in constant duty applications.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconCAUTION – Never disengage the clutch when there is a load on the winch.
WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconCAUTION – Use the hand saver hook when handling the hook for spooling or un-spooling the wire rope.


  • The 5250KGS and its all derivative types are rated at 5250KGS capacity when spooling the first rope layer on the drum. Overloading can damage the winch/motor/ or wire rope. For loads over 70% of rated line pull. we recommend the use of the pulley block/snatch block to double the wire rope line. This will aid in two ways: a) reduce the number of rope layers on the drum, as well as, b) reduce the load on the wire rope by as much as 50%. When doubling the line back to the vehicle, attach to the frame or other load-bearing part.
  • The vehicle engine should be kept running during the operation of the winch to minimize battery drain and maximize the power and speed of the winch. If the winch is used for a considerable amount of time with the engine of the battery may be drained and too weak to restart the engine.
  • Get to know your winch before you actually need to use it. We recommend that you set up a few test runs to familiarize yourself with rigging techniques, the
    sounds your winch makes under various loads, the way the cable spools on the drum, etc.
  • Inspect the wire rope and equipment before each use. A frayed or damaged rope must be replaced immediately. Use only the manufacturer’s identical replacement rope with the exact specifications.
  • Inspect the winch installation and bolts to ensure that all bolts are tight before each operation.
  • Never connect the cable back to itself. This will cause cable damage. Always use a snatch block, sling, or chain of suitable strength as shown in the
  • Store the remote control inside your vehicle in a place that it will not be damaged.
  • Any winch that appears to be damaged in any way is found to be worn, or operates abnormally shall be removed from service.
  • Pull only on parts of the vehicle as specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
  • Only attachments and/or adapters supplied by the manufacturer shall be used.
  • Whenever before your winch start to work, please slightly test-run your winch in two directions, even if the winch drum only round a few degrees of angle,
    ensure the winch is well-balanced, especially after you operated the clutch, the test-running winch can make winch in gear.


a. Take time to assess your situation and plan your pull.
b. Put on gloves to protect your hands.
c. Disengage the clutch to allow free-spooling and to save energy.
d. Attach the hand saver hook to the clevis hook.
e. Pull out the wire rope to your desired anchor point using the hand saver hook.
f. Secure the clevis hook to the anchor point: Sling, chain, or snatch block. Do not attach the hook back onto the wire rope.
g. Engage the clutch.
h. Connect the remote control switch to the winch.
i. Start your engine to ensure power is being replenished to the battery.
j. Power in the wire rope guiding the wire under tension to draw up the slack in the wire. Once the wire is under tension stand well clear. Never step over the wire rope.
k. Double-check your anchors and make sure all connections are secure.
l. Inspect the wire rope. Make sure there are at least 5 wraps of wire rope around the winch drum.
m. Drape a blanket or jacket over the wire rope approximately 5 to 6 feet from the hook. Open the hood of the vehicle for added protection.
n. Clear the area. Make sure all spectators are back and that no one is directly in front or behind the vehicle or anchor point.
o. Begin winching. Be sure that the wire rope is winding evenly and tightly around the drum. The vehicle that is being winched can be slowly driven to add assistance to the winching process. Avoid shock loads; keep the wire rope under tension.
p. The vehicle to be winched should be placed in neutral and the emergency brake released. Only release the brake pedal when under full tension. Avoid shock loads to the winch. This can damage the winch, rope, and vehicle.
q. The winch is meant for intermittent use. Under full load with a single line rig do not power in for more than a minute without letting the motor cool down for a few minutes and then resume the winching operation.
r. The winching operation is complete once the vehicle is on stable ground and is able to drive under its own power.
s. Secure the vehicle. Be sure to set the brakes and place the vehicle in the park.
t. Release the tension on the wire rope. The winch is not meant to hold the vehicle for long periods of time.
u. Disconnect the wire rope from the anchor.
v. Rewind the wire rope. Make sure that any wire already on the drum has spooled tightly and neatly. If not, draw out the wire and re-spool from the point where the rope is tight.
w. Keep your hands clear of the winch drum and fairlead as the wire rope is being drawn in.
x. Secure the hook and hook strap.
y. Disconnect the remote control and store it in a clean, dry place.
z. Clean and inspect connections and mounting hardware for next winching operation.


  1. Your winch is designed with a bolt pattern that is standard in this class of winch. Many winch mounting kits are available that utilize this bolt pattern for popular vehicles and mounting channels. If you will utilize the mounting channel you must ensure that it is mounted on a flat surface so that the three major sections (motor, drum, and gear housing) are properly aligned. Proper alignment of the winch will allow even distribution of the full rated load.
  2. If your winch choices the mounting channel. Start by connecting the roller fairlead (Part# N1750900) to the mounting channel using 2 each of the cap screw M12 X 30 (Part# N1750022), lock washer (Part# N1750021), and securing (Make sure the screw is placed through the mounting channel and roller fairlead from inside the channel. This will allow enough clearance for the winch to be placed in the channel without obstruction.)
  3. Assemble the winch to the mounting channel or vehicle bump base by first pulling and releasing the clutch knob to the “CLUTCH OUT” position (free spooling). Pull out a few inches of cable from the drum and feed the wire loop through the opening in the front of the mounting channel and roller fairlead. Now, using the remaining M12 x 35 cap screws (Part# N1750020) and lock washer (Part# N1750021) secure the winch to the mounting channel.
  4. Connect the winch motor leads as detailed below:WARRIOR 5250EN Electric Winch-
    WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconCAUTION – Batteries contain gases that are flammable and explosive. Wear eye protection during installation and remove all jewelry. Do not lean over the battery while making connections.
  5. Assemble the clevis hook to the cable. Take off the pin from the clevis hook, connect the clevis hook to the cable and mount the pin back to the clevis hook.
  6. Always use the hand saver when free-spooling and re-spooling the wire rope. Using the hand saver keeps your hands and fingers away from the rotating drum
  7. Check for proper drum rotation. Pull and turn the clutch knob to the “CLUTCH OUT” position. Pull out some cable from the drum, and then tum the clutch knob to the “CLUTCH IN” position to engage the gears. Press the cable out button on the power switch. If the drum is turning and releasing more cable then your connections are accurate. If the drum is turning and collecting more cable then reverse the leads on the motor. Repeat and check rotation.

Locate a suitable anchor such as a strong tree trunk or boulder. Always use a sling as an anchor point. WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconCAUTION Do not attach the clevis hook back onto the cable as this could cause damage to the cable. As shown in Fig 3.1

WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-Recovery1

WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-iconCAUTION Do not winch from an acute angle as the wire rope will pile up on one side of the drum causing damage to the wire rope and the winch. Fig 3.2 Short pulls from an angle can be used to straighten the vehicle long pulls should be done with the wire rope at a 90° angle to the winch/vehicle.

WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-Recovery2

When pulling a heavy load, place a blanket or jacket over the wire rope five or six feet from the hook. In the event of a broken cable, it will dampen the snapback. For additional protection open the the hood of the vehicle as shown in Fig 3.3

WARRIOR 80ENS24 Electric Winch Installation-Recovery3

For pulls over 70% rated line pull, we recommend the use of the snatch block/pulley block to double line the wire rope. Fig 3.4 This reduces the load on the winch and the strain on the rope by up to 50% depending on the included angle.
