Superwinch Unveils Patent Pending Auto Clutch


Superwinch, the largest privately-held winch manufacturer in the world, announced the unveiling of the company’s pending patent for an auto engaging winch clutch.  The innovation is one of the key features of the new Superwinch EXP Series of performance winches.


This pending patent covers a mechanical solution for winchers looking to re-engage the clutch after freespooling line out.  Traditionally, this meant another trip back to the winch for manual re-engagement.  With the new Superwinch application, a simple tap on the winch controller and the clutch automatically reengages the drive gear.


“Superwinch continues to lead in innovation.  Our engineers worked extremely hard to make the new EXP Series the best winch line on the market and I believe we’ve achieved that,” says Superwinch VP of Engineering, Brent Nasset.


The Superwinch EXP Series features 8,000, 10,000 and 12,000 pound capacities; wire or synthetic rope; and integrated design or non-integrated design for remote solenoid box installations.
