TESTED & APPROVED
To ensure the very best manufacturing processes are undertaken in the building of our BOSS series winches, we have developed our own detailed testing procedures to ensure they meet and exceed our engineering, performance, and quality benchmarks. Our testing procedures are divided into two individual areas: Strength and Durability.
Each Boss winch is tested to 1.1 times the maximum rated line pull in a dynamic testing environment, and 1.25 times maximum rated line pull in a static testing environment. These tests are designed to examine the overall strength and ability of the winch while observing and recording the important characteristics and operational performance.
The winch is tested to the maximum duty cycle (1 minute) and rated line pull (winch applicable rating) in a dynamic test. This test is performed no less than 100 times and recorded; furthermore the first (1st) cycle is tested to 1.25 times the rated line pull. After the winch has passed 100 cycles without failure the winch and components are passed and inspected.
Each winch in the BOSS series features a three-stage planetary gearbox with BS 1/2 H2600 sintered bronze bushings and S45C hardened carbon steel gears, providing superior strength even when working under the toughest of conditions. These bushings have been pressed and stamped (no pop rivets) into the gear carrier.
A sliding ring gear clutch provides maximum strength and efficiency in forward and reverse winching operations with ease of free spool functionality. Each gearbox is assembled and lubricated using synthetic grease and conforms to our strict assembly guidelines.
Providing strength and enduring the pulling forces exerted is a hardened seamless steel drum assembly. The in-drum brake system features automatic direct drive load holding and Kevlar brake pads for improved safety.
Delivering power to the winch is an IP65 rated waterproof solenoid with Japanese manufactured Cu-Ag alloy contacts (silver-alloyed copper). The technology and quality of these contactors resist arching when switching currents. This prevents the contactors from fusing together creating a closed circuit which can potentially damage your winch or vehicle and may cause serious injury to the operator.
This solenoid is housed in a sleek and stylish control box which has a waterproof plug. The heavy duty hand control comes with a 5 metre power cord offering the user complete control and flexibility to stand well clear of the winch during operation. The BOSS series winch uses a high quality efficient 12 Volt 4.6hp series wound motor offering performance and reliability in the toughest of conditions.
