Review of the ComeUp DV-9 Series Winches

Today we will be taking a look at the COMEUP DV9 Series Electric Winches. Part number, CU856333, which will be the DV9, part number CU856363, which is the DV-9i, CU859112, which will be the DV-9s, and part number CU859012. Here we are with our truck stuck in the mud. We just need a little assistance to get it out. We'll go ahead and winch out now. We're going to go ahead and grab the winch out of the back of our truck and put it in the front. This COMEUP winch is going to be great with that cradle and accessibility to getting it put in the front of the vehicle when you need it the most.

Let's go ahead and grab our hitch pin and put into our front receiver. We'll go ahead and run our remote control out from the inside of the vehicle out to the front. We'll line up the six pins and you'll see how it's going to have a little indent there. We'll line that up on top and slide it in to our bridge control module here on the top. It just so happens that there's a tree almost straight down in front of our vehicle. We're going to use that tree as an anchor point to winch ourselves out.

Let's go ahead and put on our tree saver. We'll go ahead and get into our accessory bag and undo our hook and loop straps securing our tree saver. We'll put the tree saver around our tree. We'll go ahead and slide these around the back of the tree so we don't rough up our strap and then we're going to place on our D ring. We'll go ahead and put our pin in temporarily and drag out our line.

We'll go ahead and turn the clutch to disengage that way we can manually pull out all our line. Grab the hand saver here and drag out the line. You can see here the roller in action. Not allowing the cable to get kinked up on the sides allowing you to pull vertical, down and side to side. We'll pull our cable out to where we meet up with our tree. Place our cable through our snatch block, rotate it around and then we'll hook it in that D ring.

We're going to do a single pull out right now and attach to a solid anchor point, which is going to be the vehicle up the hill. Now that we're here we're going to go ahead and drop it down and we're going to place our strap around the end of the D ring hooked to our anchor vehicle. We'll go ahead and undo the hook and loop strap and we're going to place it through our D ring here on the anchor vehicle. We'll go ahead and place the other end of the strap through our D ring, place in our bolt and hook up our winch cable. Now, we're ready to start winching it back in. Engage your clutch and then pull in your line. Now that we have our line nice and tight we'll go ahead and place on our recovery damper in the middle of our line that way in case if our line we're to come undone and pop off we wouldn't get hit with anything because it will keep line down on the ground. You'll fill this up with rocks before you get started. Now, we're ready to start recovering our vehicle. We're going to put our vehicle in park and let it out a little bit so we can undo our tree saver and pull it out the rest of the way with our straight pull. With our line tight let's go ahead and get back in the truck and finish our way out. Now that we've made it out of the mud whole and we're up on some level and flat ground that's dry and easy to manage we're going to go ahead and undo our winch. We'll go ahead and let a little bit out and then we'll disengage our clutch. Lift up on the T handle here on top, rotate it around into the position noted here on the front. Now, we'll go ahead and guide it back in to get it spooled up properly. Instead of doing the single pull method with the snatch block and the tree saver we're going to go ahead and use that tree saver to go ahead and double back to the vehicle and do the double line method. Using the double line method with the snatch block is going to double the capacity of our winch. That's going to be for those desperate times when you need that extra power to pull yourself out if you had cut your line linked in half as well as your line speed. Now, you're just going to have to be within 50 feet of your snatch block instead of within 100 feet of your anchor point. Go ahead and put down our heady accessory bag here, open it up and pull out that tree saver again. Go ahead and wrap it around our tree, go ahead and attach our 3/4" D ring and tighten down our bolt. Now, we'll go ahead and grab our remote and plug it in so we can let out line a little bit and then we will disengage our clutch here on the top. Disengage and pull it out. Grab that hand saver here on top to help you pull it. Now, we can go ahead and pull off that D ring that was holding our tree saver in place and put on our snatch block around our wire. Grab that snatch block, rotate it around and put it through the D ring. Now, we'll go ahead and run our line and cable back to the vehicle. I'll go ahead and attach it to our factory tow hook and then put our dampener on this side of the line in case that if that pops off that it isn't going to fly out. Undo the hook and loop and slide it over the line. Go ahead and bring it to the center and set it down. All right, we'll go ahead and pull up the tension and then get inside the vehicle and pull it out the rest of the way. Make sure you re-engage the clutch before you get started. Now that we've got our co-pilot in the vehicle he's going to help guide the vehicle while we sit up here and pull it to the front making sure that line stays straight inside the winch. As we're spooling it up we can keep it spooling nice and tight on the front of the vehicle while we're pulling our vehicle out that way when we get out for the next recovery, if we need to have another one, we're not going to be under a challenge to straighten out our spool. This one here on the end is going to be the DV-9, the DV-9i, which are going to be your cable, electric winches. The only major difference with these is going to be is that one is going to have the removable control module. It can be relocated underneath the hood or in a different compartment away from the actual winch itself. Whereas the DV-9i is going to have the bridge control module over the top. Both will have the roller fairlead for the DV-9 and the DV-9i as well as the hooks and mounting hardware included and your remote control. The reason this one looks a little bit different from the DV-9 besides the bridge control module over the top is we already have it mounted in our cradle. For our application today we're actually going to show the DV-9 series in action with this one here. This is going to be part number CU881084, which is going to be the multi-purpose mount kit for the DV-9 series. Here we have the DV-9s and the DV-9si. These are going to be your synthetic rope applications with a Hawse fairlead rather than the roller fairlead as well as a different style hook for our synthetic cable. It's still going to come with your remote control that will just simply plug into the side as well as the connections that you'll need to make to get it hooked up to your vehicle on all these applications for the DV-9 series. One thing to make perfectly clear with these DV-9 series COMEUP winches is that they all are going to be electric winches. All the DV-9 series are going to have the same gearing and the same motors. The only thing that's going to be different is going to be the control module whether it's going to be the removable one that you can relocate or the bridge model that you see here. The cable, whether it's going to be the synthetic or the wire, like you see here and the fairlead, whether that's going to be the roller style with that cable or the Hawse fairlead that comes with the synthetic cable. Other than that, the mechanical aspects are the exact same. Now, we're going to go ahead and talk about the detachable control module and the control module that you can relocate underneath the hood in the vehicle or in a different location. Now, you're control module, you're going to have all your cable to hook everything up. They're all labeled and correspond with the stamped notes on the top. Something else that's going to be unique about this is everything is going to be water tight. Even if you do locate this underneath the hood, under the bumper, wherever you're going to locate it, you're not going to have to worry about any kind of debris getting in there and messing things up. On the top you'll have your dust cover. We'll go ahead and plug in our hand held control. Line up the prongs and place it in. It's as simple as that. You have your wrist strap, slide your wrist through unless you've got really big hands, to ensure you don't lose it. If you need to move something you can still have it on your hand. You're going to have your out or spool out and your spool in. If you need to spool out your cable all your going to do is hit that disengage to disengage that clutch, so pull up and twist it just as the notes here on the side say. Pull out that cable, come back to the vehicle, pop it back into gear, hook up your control and winch yourself out. A couple of other things we're going to brush on here is going to be our hook for our cable, which will be that DV-9 and that DV-9i. This is going to be for your cable style eclectic winches, these two here. Simply remove the clip and pin, place it in and then place it back through just like so. The DV-9 series and the DV-9s are going to have this black removable contact box that's going to be fully sealed and fully submersible and water right resistance. The heavy duty silver alloy contact pads on the inside, the thick copper bus bars are going to help make lasting contact over a long period of time. The heavy duty series wound motor delivers a superior torque output and a faster line speed. The motor, rated at 3,430 watts for 4.6 horsepower on a 12 volt series wound circuit. The rugged and quiet three stage planetary gears offer a maximum mechanical advantage with a gear ratio of 156:1. Something else that's really unique about the clutch and brake assembly here on the side is you can just loosen up this hardware here, the three Allen bolts on the side and rotate that clutch handle around if it's not in a desired located that you'd like to have it. With this braking system, it's automatically going to endure the full load without slipping. The greater the load on the rope the greater amount of braking is going to be generated by the mechanism. With that big drum being mounted on the outside it's going to expedite any departure of any of the heat, which is going to be great for anybody using the synthetic rope system. The nice ergonomic remote is going to be included as well with a hand and wrist strap as well as the finger indentions on the side for easy holding. It will also have your safety rubber pieces on either side so you're not bumping it when you don't want to hit it. Also located here is going to be LED lights. With a thermometric LED indicator, which is automatically going to alert you when receiving a warning that the motor is overheating. With 17 feet of cable you can easily stretch it back to the inside of the vehicle or away from harm. The DV-9 series winches are rated at 9,000 pounds single line pull. This doesn't mean that it's going to pull 9,000 pounds no matter what you're doing. That's going to be your static load over a flat ground. You're going to need to know what your weight ratings are use those accordingly. The rope dimension is 21/64th in diameter by 100 feet long. The mounting bolt pattern on the bottom is 4 1/2 wide by 10 inches long. It's recommended that you have a battery that has 650 cold cranking amps. The battery leads will be 6 foot for your 2 gauge wire. The cable is going to be made of a galvanized air craft A7 x 19 and it's going to be heavy duty graded steel and cable. When you're using the cable you're going to want to use that roller fairlead, which is going to be mounted up here on the front giving you the full capability of rolling any which way or direction, whether it's up, down, side to side and it's not going to get bound up. Full roller all the way around. When you're using the synthetic rope you're not going to be able to use this because it will get pinched in between. You're going to want to go with that Hawse fairlead that's going to mount up straight on the front. It's going to come with all your mounting hardware, whether that's to mount it up to your universal bracket or to mount up your fairlead to the front. For the DV-9 and the DV-9s it's going to come with clamps to clamp on your control module. Let's go ahead and jump over and talk about the synthetic rope systems, which is the DV-9s and the DV-9si. The si is going to have that bridge contact unit that's going to be mounted over the top for those applications that don't require those tight mounting quarters like the DV-9s and the DV-9 are going to have that contact module that's going to give you the ability to mount it anywhere in the vehicle. You're also going to get that special forged steel hook that's going to go on the front with that heavy duty clip and special mounting bracket that's going to have that push pin adapter. This is all going to make it to where it doesn't get pinched, frayed or split in your winching system. Again, with that hand saver, all the mounting hardware, remote control and that Hawse fairlead. This Hawse fairlead is going to allow for no pinching points especially on this last part of your rope and for this part out where it's going to have the most tension and capability of getting frayed. It's not going to get any damage coming through that Hawse fairlead like it would if it was going through your roller fairlead. Now, the specialized synthetic rope that you see on the DV-9s and the si models is going to be synthetic rope, SK-75, which is going to be 3/8ths in diameter and 100 feet long. Under a no load circumstances, you're going to have a maximum line speed of 44 feet per minute pulling a total of 55 amps from your 12 volt system. Now, with a full load of 9,000 pounds you'll have a line speed of 6.4 feet per minute and a total of 350 amps drawing from your 12 volt system. That will do it for the review of our DV-9 series electric winches.
