9k-10k Winch?

Well, looks like the option of 12k+ winches is out for at least the time being on my bumper. I really would like to have the back-up though. I wrote Superwinch about the option of mounting the bigger winches and this is an excerpt from the email I got back.

"I would recommend the EP9.0 9,000 lbs winch for your application. This
unit can pull a rolling load of 45,000 lbs up a 10% grade."

Rolling 45,000lb up a 10% grade doesn't sounds like too big of a deal to me and single line pull is still only rated at 9,000lb.

I have three questions. Anyone use a 9,000lb winch on a Superduty? I figure I can always put it on the wife's Jeep when I upgrade.

Is it worth getting a 10,000lb worm gear winch instead? Thanks for any input you can provide.

Anyone have any experience with hydraulic winches on 3/4 or 1 ton trucks?

Thanks.
-Aaron

i run a 10.5k hydro on my jeep, ive saved more ppl that run electrics then i can count.

i cell tell you a few facts.

being stuck hub deep will add half the weight to the truck. your truck it 7500 at a min. do the math.

an electric winch, on a long heavy pull will heat up and you will have to stop and let it cool. it puts a heavy load on the batteries and alternator.

a hydro only draws 3 amps for the solenoids, they have 100% duty cycle. that means you can do a max pull the hole time and not have to worry.

the only down side to a hydro that i have seen is that you can not turn the wheel and run the winch at the same time, unless you have a hydro pump that is designated to the winch.

anything else you wanna know about mine just ask. i know mile marker makes a 12k. in my opinion that would be the best winch for a big truck

even though the 9k is less than desirable, if you put a full oad on it and help with the engine it should do the job. assuming its still running.

I would say that if you wanted one for just in case situation, then id say a 9000k winch with a block and tackle for a double line pull would be fine.if you do a lot of off roadin or have a job where you spend alot of time in the mud, (logger, oill well maintenance, etc.) and you will be needing it alot id figure out how to get a 12k or 15k winch. I have a 9k that i took off my jeep and have doubled up the line to drag out some 3/4 and 1 tons out of the slop, but it was a strain in this clay when the were really burried. If i was going to be setting somthing up stricktly foer my SD it would be 12k+ and I would look real hard into going hydraulic. again, I dont doubt that if you were just gona use it for an oops once in a while that a 9k would work with a doubler but youll just have to use your head and take it slow.

I run a 12k on my F250, she tips the scales at 6480 almost every time. Its an electric but i love it. I think a hydro would be cool but on an SD doesnt the power steering run the brakes as well? makes it a heavy load on the pump?

But are you really going to use your brakes when you are stuck hub deep? And you can always run a second pump.

True. that skipped my mind. i guess the point of my statement is thats a lot for that pump. Idk i never had an issue with the electrical setup. But i dont bury my rig nor do i use it often. But it works well for my uses
