We are thinking about getting a winch for the new samurai. I like the idea of the warn power plant but they have the HP and HD versions, dose anyone know the difference between the models?

From what I've dugup the HP is the 9,000 lb version and the HD is the 12,000 lb version. Is that it? I could be incorrect.

That’s probably what it will get used for most often

What's the cost difference? i'm too lazy to look. If it's like 100bucks more, i'd get the powerplant, but if it's anymore than that, i'd have to think about where i do most of my wheeling, is there air close by? can i make it back tot he trailer on a flat ? or do i have a spare? I'm guessing for me that i can make it without the air compressor.

Just my 2cents
get a 9000xdi and be done with it forever :-) I love mine! (i think that's the letters that go behind the 9000, not sure)

On this site the Power plants are about $1,400. it appears the difference is the gear ratio and cable.
The 9,500 lb is about $300 more than it's compareable not powerplant version. I'd like to go with the 12,000 lb version though, I figure I'll never wish I'd bought a winch that can pull less, looks like it gets it additional strength throught a lower gear ratio, so the downside is that it will wind slower.
We will take into consideration the fact that the powerplant is about $300 more, but we just sold the S-10 so we got a little cash to blow.

My m8000 has been beaten on ALOT since summer 2003. There is only one time it's run out of power, then I just hooked up a snatch block and all was well. For that much money, you could easily set up an engine driven compressor that will put out significantly more air. Or if you like the ease of the electric compressor, you could save money and have a better setup by getting a normal winch, and a VIAIR compressor that will put out more than the Warn. There are much better combinations in my opinion. You will not exceed the capacity of a 9,000lb winch, especially with a snatch block.
