Kin­gone winch

NZ4WD - - WINCH REVIEW -

TDS- Rap­tor, Bull, Orca... all are model names from the Kin­gone winch se­lec­tion you can pur­chase from any Kin­gone dealer.

The TDS-Rap­tor

The TDS-Rap­tor is a high speed 9500lbs winch which has been a main­stay on the NZ 4WD scene for the past eight years. Boast­ing fea­tures like the 156.1 gear ra­tio and 5.2hp mo­tor and dual cone load hold­ing brake, the Rap­tor is sup­plied with syn­thetic rope and wire­less re­mote. Able to be con­fig­ured to fit onto any winch bar plat­form the TDS-Rap­tor has an IP- 67 dust and wa­ter rat­ing and is backed by im­porter and dis­trib­u­tor Phill­brook Tech­nolo­gies’ great af­ter sales ser­vice to its deal­ers with spare parts avail­able for all mod­els of Kin­gone winches car­ried here in New Zealand.

Bull Winch

Ba­si­cally de­signed to chal­lenge the Amer­i­can Jeep mar­ket the Bull- 9.5 car­ries all the fea­tures of the TDS-Rap­tor but comes with Amer­i­can styling and black liv­ery. The ex­tra cover plates en­able the Bull range to make the IP- 68 dust and wa­ter rat­ing. The new in­te­grated so­le­noid box looks the cat’s py­ja­mas. The Bull winch gained run­ner up in the new prod­uct cat­e­gory at SEMA two years ago. So it ticked the box for the USA mar­ket.

Orca Winch

The Orca range cov­ers a wide range of winch­ing op­tions in the form of pulling power. Orca starts with a 9000lbs winch with a dual cone hold­ing brake. Some­thing that has been miss­ing in the past in this size. Orca then jumps to 11000lbs and 13000lbs winches. The 9000lb Orca comes with wire rope but the 11000lbs and 13000lbs range mod­els come with syn­thetic rope. All have wire­less re­motes. The Orca range runs a 206.1 gear ra­tio. The Orca has a smooth winch­ing speed, is a very

easy winch to ac­com­mo­date most brands of winch bars avail­able here in NZ, and yes it does come in black! So if you need to know more about the Kin­gone winch then give the deal­ers listed on the ad a call. These are the guys who fit them and back them up. In most cases all of the Kin­gone deal­ers run a Kin­gone of some de­scrip­tion in their 4x4 as well.
