Series 20XL

This winch has a 20,000 lb. pulling capacity and is designed for use on trailers, rollback trailers, and heavy-duty applications. LP stands for “Low Pressure” and means this winch uses a larger displacement motor to pull full rated load at only 2200 psi.

This makes the Series 20XL-LP winch ideal for hydraulic systems that operate below 3000 psi.
