Popular Questions Asked
What size winch do I need for my 4WD?
This industry standard calculation will provide you the number in pounds (lbs) of the winch you require to do a safe and effective recovery.
Firstly multiply the total weight of your vehicle by 1.5. In the case of a 2021 200 Series Landcruiser this would work out to be 4,110. Then to turn this into pounds (lbs), multiply by 2.205, which would work out to be 9,062. From this number you would theoretically need a winch that would pull a 9,000lb load or better to keep you out of trouble.
Is it worth having a winch?
If there's any chance that you may get stuck, stranded, or bogged then the answer to this is an emphatic 'Yes'. For the peace of mind to be able to tackle even basic terrain with confidence you need a winch on your 4wd.
Whilst a modern winch tends to do away with the traditional steel cable, these now offer easy to handle synthetic rope that are both strong and less cumbersome, making a winch a practical solution to anyone venturing offroad.
Whilst you may not need a fancy wireless remote for the control box you should always look to the IP rating to ensure your winch has a minimum of IP67 standard which enables your winch to withstand temporary immersion in water of up to 1 metre for about 30 minutes. This rating also means it is dust resistant to protect your winch motor.
