WARN ZEON Gear Train
Written: December 11, 2012
As you may have heard by now, the Premium Series
WARN ZEON winches have a host of all-new features, designs, and levels of performance. One of those all-new features is the three-stage planetary gear train.
The M8000 gear train on the left is still a great set of gears and is smooth, reliable, and durable. The ZEON
gear train on the right represents the next generation of WARN three-stage planetary gear trains. For instance, we've gone from three carrier pins on the first and second stages to six on the ZEON. ZEON also has thicker carrier plates and wider gear faces on the second and thrid stages.
So what does this all mean? Increased durability. Faster line speeds. Quieter operation. Another reason we say the ZEON is "winching evolved."
