Video Transcript for Superwinch Electric Winch - Truck Winch - SW1618200 Review

Today we're going to review part number SW1618200, this is the Super Winch Talon Series off road winch, comes with the roller fairlead and has an 18,000 pound weight capacity. This is a high performance off road winch, which is designed for heavy duty vehicle recovery applications. Right down here, you can see it has a sealed 6 horse power series wound motor, which will efficiently deliver quick and safe line pulling. It does respond to an increase on load by slowing down and reducing the current to minimize the risk of overheating the motor. Also attached, you can see it has this hand held remote with a nice rubber glove on it for good grip and a heavy duty 15 foot long coiled cord. This will let you operate the winch from a safe distance and when you do use these push buttons on the remote, this will power the load in and out. You can actually, it works well at night because when you push on the buttons, it'll light up a LED light here, so at night you'll be able to see what you're doing. Now on the other side here, has a pull and turn free spool clutch.

This will ensure a fast rope payout. Your gear box is right here. This is a sealed rotating gear box, it will let you customize the position of the clutch for easy access. The clutch handle, right up here on the top has a nice stylish chrome plating for corrosion resistance and it's ergonomic for your comfort. Basically to disengage or engage the clutch, you just pull up on this handle and it has stickers on it to show you when it's parallel to the winch itself, that means it's engaged. If you just pull up, turn it 90 degrees, it will lock into the perpendicular position.

That means it's disengaged, you can pull out on that free spool and pull out on the cable as much as you need. Then you just put it back in to engage it. Now the cable itself that comes on here is a half inch diameter wire rope, which is very strong and durable, gives you 90 feet of it. This is 90 foot long. It does include this removable latched hook right up here and a nylon hand saver strap. The hook has a nice latch on it to keep it hooked, has the pin and clip.

What you'll do is you slide that out, put it into the loop, put it in, you're ready to go. What's nice is, for safety reasons you don't ever want to grab the hook when you're hooking it up, because you can damage your fingers or your hands, so you want to use this hand saver strap. In other words, to pull it and hook it to where you need to. This cable does mount over an all steel drum. Also comes with this stainless steel four way roller fairlead. The idea of this is, you run your cable through here out the front and with your cable in here, any time you're pulling something to the side or up and down, that cable will roll along these rollers and it keeps the wire rope from any damage by reducing the strain on it and any rubbing.

You can see it has the two horizontal rollers, top and bottom and then the two vertical rollers. Now also over by the gear box, you have your brake. This is a dual stop automatic 100 percent load holding mechanical brake right here. This will eliminate the drag when you're pulling in the cable and reduces the creep when you're letting out the cable and you can see it's mounted outside the drum to allow heat to disburse. Over here above the motor, you have the VS4 vented submersible and stabilized solenoid with a sealed socket and it has a patented venting feature which will protect your contacts underneath here from water and allows internal condensation to escape. It does have the steel lined, rubber insulated mounting points to stabilize the solenoid and that helps reduce vibration and fatigue. Also sometimes you might want to move this solenoid, you don't want it right by the winch. We do offer a wiring kit that we do sell separately on our website. It's listed as a related product on this product page. It's part number SW2302283 and when you do that, you can wire this and it will let you remotely mount this solenoid, to give you easy access to this remote port. Now the gear box on this, it's an all steel, two stage planetary and two stage spur gear box. It's very rugged construction, delivers many years of service and it quickly and quietly turns the drum. The body is an extruded aluminum body, which is very sturdy and corrosion resistant. Now on the solenoid does have the circuit breakers all included and if you notice on the back here, it comes with the color coded wiring. It's black and red, so you've got your power and your ground wire to hook up to the battery source and it also comes with the mounting hardware to install this where you need to. Now a few specs on this, the rated line pull with just a single layer of wire rope around the drum is 18,000 pounds. The vehicle recovery capacity is 12,000 pounds. This motor down here is a 6 horse power 12 volt DC motor. The line pull at zero pounds, the power draw will be 75 amps, the line speed is 25 feet per minute and the line pull at 18,000 pounds, the power draw is 415 amps and the line speed is 2 1/2 feet per minute. The maximum continuous run time is two minutes. Now on the gear, the gear ratio is 346 to one, the braking is 100 percent load holding mechanical braking. I do want to give you a few dimensions on the size of this winch. Overall length from edge to edge is going to be right at about 27 1/2 inches long. The width at the widest point is going to be about 8 1/2 inches wide and then the height at the tallest point, which is with the solenoid right here on top here, is going to be about 11 1/2 inches tall. Again, the wire rope that's on there, it is a half inch diameter, 90 foot long rope. The drum that it's on is a 3 1/2 inch diameter drum and about 8 3/4 inches long. The length on the power and ground wire is 62 inches. The weight on this winch is about 172 pounds and it does come with a three year limited warranty on the solenoid and a limited lifetime warranty on the winch itself. That should do it for the review on part number SW1618200, the Super Winch Talon Series off road winch, with the roller fairlead and an 18,000 pound weight capacity. .

Review from a similar Talon Series in Electric Winch


I have the winch mounted on a detachable hitch that I have on my 18’ trailer. Pin in on when I need it. We buy , sell and show antique tractors. Some of the tractors we buy aren’t running so we just winch them on the trailer. This winch has excellent power and torque and we can skid any tractor on the trailer even if the rear wheels are locked or if it has been sitting in the weeds for years. Great buy for the money. Shipping was very fast.

Very satisfied with the service and, support. I originally set out to order the TS 9500 winch. Etrailer tried to help out by offering an upgrade to 13500 for less than the price of the 9500. Only problem there was a space issue when I mounted it behind my new bumper so, I had to return it and, settle for the smaller version. They made the return and replacement as painless as possible. The 9500 winch has been working without any issues since I purchased it a year ago. Thanks etrailer!

Review from a similar Talon Series in Electric Winch


Got the winch mounted up and it looks great and works great and etrailer is a great place to do business. The only thing about the winch is the fact that it comes with some type of devise that hooks to the positive side of the battery. There is nothing in the printed instructions that tells you what this is. As an afterthought they threw in a picture that shows where this goes. Just to be sure I got this right, I went to youtube and found out exactly how this works. I don't know of any other winch that has this, certainly not the Warn I had, and it shows they wrapped this with electrical tape??? Still, no information. You must need this part or they wouldn't have threw it in, but still don't get it. Makes for an ugly installation on the battery though..........

This is the second winch that I bought. The first winch had the return button go bad on the remote and was able to borrow one that worked. After the third year the motor burned out and I purchased another one. After one year the return button on the remote failed the same as last time. The winch is still running with the borrowed switch I use the winch to pull 3,000 lb logs onto a log trailer. When it worked it did a good job

very happy with this winch, I made a mount that was universal to my truck receiver and on my car trailer . Have not been stuck bad yet , but have used it many times to pull dead cars and trucks onto the trailer and it had no trouble pulling a full size 3/4 4x4 with 3 wheels not rolling onto my trailer . I would buy another one.

Great winch. It gets used EVERY DAY and never misses a beat. This is my second superwinch and the last one lasted three years, used every day, for an average of more than TWO THOUSAND PULLS a year! You'd better believe my next winch will be another one just like the first two!

Nice winch. Plenty of power. Remote control button sticks though making it a bit dangerous. My winch is mounted to trailer making it dangerous if you let off in/out button and it continues to winch in one direction or another.

  • Bolt Hole Compatibility of Curt Winch Mount # C31010 w/ Superwinch Talon # SW1618200 Electric Winch
    I spoke with my Superwinch representative, who tells me that the Talon # SW1618200 can mount using a 10 x 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern, or a 10 x 6-1/2 pattern, both of which will exactly match the bolt hole spacing of the Curt # C31010 receiver winch mount you're asking about. I've linked you to a diagram showing the bolt hole dimension on the Curt Winch Mount.

  • Mounting Bolt Hole Dimensions of Superwinch Talon # SW1618200
    Although we do not currently carry Warn winches, I was able to conduct some research and determine that their larger winches, as opposed to those meant for use on an ATV, use a 10x4-1/2 inch mounting bolt pattern. As you can see by the diagram I produced for you, the Superwinch Talon can install using a 10x4-1/2 or 10x6-1/2 inch bolt pattern, so the Talon should be compatible with your bumper. However, you should measure the bolt pattern on the bumper just to be sure.

  • Can Superwinch Talon Series Off-Road Winch SW1618200 Pull 8200-lb Fork Lift onto Tilt Trailer
    The Superwinch Talon Series Off-Road Winch # SW1618200 offers a substantial 18K line pull rating with a static load, so with your 8200-lb fork lift, which is a rolling load not a static load, this winch will be a very good choice. It is always a good idea to have a generous safety margin when it comes to selecting a winch. This leads to longer life from the winch. The winch capacity needed to pull a fork lift up onto a trailer depends not just on the weight of the load (8200-lbs) but...
