Tow Truck & Industrial Hydraulic Winches: Series 20XL-LP
 
SERIES 20XL-LP
Great for Wreckers, Trailers, or Severe-Duty Applications
This winch has a 20,000 lb. pulling capacity and is designed for use on trailers, rollback trailers, and heavy-duty applications. LP stands for "Low Pressure" and means this winch uses a larger displacement motor to pull full rated load at only 2200 psi. This makes the Series 20XL-LP winch ideal for hydraulic systems that operate below 3000 psi.

  • 11.9 cubic-inch high-performance motor with 20,000 lb. capacity - great for wreckers, trailers, or severe duty applications
  • Spring-applied disc brake designed to hold the full-rated load
  • Hardened aircraft-grade nickel chromoly two stage planetary geartrain for speed and reliability
  • Standard air clutch with manual clutch option
  • Available in short- and long-drum versions
  • Meets SAE J706 and CE specifications

Built for trailers and use in the towing industry, the Series 20XL has the features and performance to get the job done fast. A 2-stage planetary geartrain means quick, reliable, maintenance-free operation. Unlike worm-gear winches, which have a messy, high-maintenance oil bath, the Series 20XL's planetary geartrain uses a permanent lubrication system. No mess, no maintenance, no compromises.
