Warn Industries Launches 70th Anniversary M8274-70 Winch
The company’s most iconic product now features increased performance,
more durability, and styling updates.
Las Vegas, NV (10/30/18) – In celebration of Warn Industries’ 70th anniversary, the M8274-50— one of the most iconic winches ever produced and one of Warn’s best-known products—is getting a 21st-century update. This limited-edition winch (only 999 will be produced worldwide, each individually numbered) will showcase more power, increased durability, plus a few styling changes and retro touches. Introducing the new M8274-70.
The Fastest WARN® Winch Gets Even Faster—and More Durable.
While the winch’s basic platform isn’t changing, its performance is. Warn has taken the powerful 6 hp motor from the high-performance 9.5xp and attached it to the M8274-70. This motor upgrade helps the winch achieve up to 50% faster line speed at rated load compared to the previous generation M8274. The motor is controlled by an IP68 waterproof Albright contactor for increased reliability, efficiency, and performance. Warn has also added two Oilite® bushings on the pinion gear assembly for improved wear resistance, and a bolt-and-washer secured brake shaft for enhanced durability.
This 70th anniversary winch has more capacity than previous versions. The new M8274-70 has a 10,000 lb. (4536 kg) capacity making it more appropriate for today’s larger, heavier vehicles, such as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Previous versions pulled 8,000 lbs. (3629 kg).
The winch comes equipped with the longest length of synthetic rope in the WARN lineup, too: 150 ft. of 3/8″ (45.7m of 9.5mm) WARN Spydura® synthetic rope that is lightweight, easy-to-handle, yet exceedingly durable. Also included is a new forged 6061-T6 billet aluminum Premium WARN hawse fairlead for the ultimate in durability.
