The DC1600 hoist combines a powerful permanent magnet DC motor with robust sealing and our proven 3-stage all metal geartrain. Permanent grease lubrication means years of trouble free service. All WARN hoists incorporate an automatic mechanical brake that holds full rated load. The durable powder coated finish stands up to the elements and looks great. The DC1600 hoist is built on WARN's robust large frame design with a cast aluminum drum to provide plenty of wire rope capacity.
