Default Anyone heard about the new Warn . . .

Warn Winch / Air Compressor combo product? I can't find anything about it on their website. Our company and Warn is owned by the same parent corporation and our CFO was talking about their new product. He had toured the Warn plant and saw them assembling this combo, he said it was selectable between using the motor for the winch and for the air compressor and it all fit under a nice die cast cover. He said it also had a cooler before the air chuck so the chuck would not burn your hand after extended use like some of the other compressors out there.



I found info on it here - Warn PowerPlant Dual Force

http://winchcentral.com/catalog/prod...6ada156c418deb

But it doesn't mention the compressor duty cycle.

so what if the compressor turns on when you're doing a water crossing or splashing through the puddles?

I'de say cool idea for a tow rig, probably not for a trail machine

What would cause it to turn on? Looks to me like you have to select compressor to make it work.

Anyone know what size the winch is? I don't think I saw it on the site.

I assumed it could be controlled like any compressor to keep a tank at a set level, then use that tank to run tools, lockers etc.... I have read other places that the winch doesn't have the CFM to run most tools or lockers, so it has to deliver the air to t atank where it would be used.

The new PowerPlant Dual Force is flat out the most versatile product to hit your vehicle this year. This multi-purpose performance tool blends a top-end winch, and a high-end air compressor—in one space-saving on-board unit. Flip the activator switch to air compressor and discover the PowerPlant’s can-do attitude. It puts out 12 cfm @ 0 psi, with a 1/2 gallon storage tank. That translates to airing up four 35” tires in 8 minutes. Which is just one way to put the PowerPlant to work. It tackles everything from inflating a whitewater raft to running a nail gun.
Quote:
Switch to winch mode and the PowerPlant turns on the legendary WARN winch technology. You get the raw pulling power of a Gen II Series Wound motor. Plus the proven reliability of the 3-stage planetary gear train. In other words, WARN to the rescue, time after time. The PowerPlant Dual Force comes with air hose and fittings. Additional air compressor accessories are available (such as larger air tank needed for some power tools).

# 9,500 lbs. maximum rated pull (single line)
# Fast line speed of 26.9 feet per minute (no load), 5.2 feet per minute (at 9,500 lbs. max load)
# 125 feet of 5/16” wire rope

# Over twice the duty cycle of the HP under heavy load

Um, how/why would an air chuck get hot from use? They usually get very cold on me.

I have burned my hand one one before, usually when your doing high volume stuff, running a tool constantly for a long time. I think it was an air nailer the last time.

I was using my framing nailer all day yesterday and it was basically ice cold. Same with a die grinder. That's why this is cionfusing me.

Go grab the pipe from between the compressor and the tank, then you'll answer your own question.

Ahh, yes...that part is hot :) But the cliff notes don't mention THAT. That of course is the reverse effect of the pressure effect.
