It's no secret that Warn makes some powerful winches for all sorts of applications. However, our latest winches are above and beyond anything we've ever made.

Introducing the WARN Olympus 22 and WARN Olympus 25 with 22,000 lb. and 25,000 lb. capacities, respectively. Developed to meet the demanding standards of today's Industrial and Military customers, these winches are the most powerful DC-electric units in the world ... literally.

The Olympus series winches feature a compact permanent magnet Axial Flux motor for amazing power and duty cycle, which rivals hydraulic performance levels. Plus, it uses up to one-third less amp draw than comparable winches. If you see one in person, it's quite amazing how small the motor actually is.

One of the coolest features is its weight: It weighs 65% less than comparable hydraulic winches, which is better for vehicle fuel economy and payload. For further weight savings, the Olympus 25 is available with another industry first: industrial-grade synthetic rope. In fact, this 5/8"-diameter rope has a minimum breaking strength of 40,000 lbf.!
