First gear pulls 17% faster than original Warn, second gear is improved to 50% faster than original Warn.
A common question most people ask when putting an 8274 together is “what gearing do I use?”. Commonly you either get too much speed and not enough power or the other way around. That just wasn’t good enough for Kamo Oko Vidi. So they came up with an ideal solution.
After developing their Tornado dual speed winch with a gearbox, KOV decided to do something comparable for Warn 8274’s too.
They developed a Warn compatible top housing (dual or single motor) with a gearbox. The gearbox is operated by air. By letting air into the side of the housing via a locker solenoid or air switch, the gears move and change the ratio inside the winch.
With the KOV housing, you get a fast and a strong winch.
Just imagine you’re stuck in a deep swamp and your copilot is nose deep in mud cursing. That’s not a problem. But that and a Warn with not enough power, well, those two things combined could just be too much for you. So just release air, use the first gear and with a huge amount of power you’ll get out.
At the same event, you are racing for the win and a small steep climb is waiting for you at the end. The second gear will do the job, just apply air pressure to the housing and off you go. Speed guaranteed.
Now let’s imagine for a moment this performance powered by 24V. Now you have a mean machine on the front of your car.
As any other product made in the KOV workshop, this one is also made on CNC machines with top precision and no tolerance for mistakes. The style is elegant and the design combines the need for lightweight parts and good looks.
The gears inside are completely safe from water entering the housing, the steel is forged and strong. Everything is made of the best aluminum and steel as per our request.
The gearbox is operated by air. With no pressure inside, the first gear is on. When pressure is applied (the air for the lockers can be used) the gears are operated and the faster gearing becomes active and the winch operates in a different ratio.
Motors, solenoids and busbars are not included, but are available seperately
