Carbon 12K 12000lb Winch with synthetic rope

Carbon Winches are designed and engineered by the Australian Offroad Business KPD Industries. A 4-year project began in 2012 to build a winch that would surpass all options available. The Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability and toughness being tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including Iceland and the Middle East.


  • Designed for the harshest Australian conditions.
  • Fully sealed to resist water, dirt, and dust ingress into motor, drum, and gearbox mechanisms.
  • 12000lb fast line pull with a 216:1 planetary gearset ratio.
  • 6.2HP series-wound electric motor.
  • 5-position solenoid box mounting bracket.Battery Isolator Switch.
  • Wireless remote control unit with a lanyard - FULLY SEALED RECEIVER UNIT built into the control box.

  • Electroplated planetary gearsets for long life.
  • Breather kit pre-fitted to the electric motor.
  • Multi Fit Fairlead - no need to worry about which winch suits your bullbar! Simply install as standard fitment or flip over to offset the rope outlet by 20mm.
  • All internals fully zinc electroplated for corrosion protection.
  • High-performance motor brushes with copper-impregnated contacts and corrosion-plated brush mount.
  • Bearing-supported fully balanced armature for superior performance.
  • Hoist-style brake unit mounted to the drum endplate provides superior holding power by braking through the gear train with no heat generated on the drum. No contact to the drum, no damage to synthetic rope.
  • 4-position mounting for the control box bracket over the motor or over the drum on top for flat mounting plates or on the front of the winch for top-mounting the control box when the winch is mounted vertically. Alternatively, 700mm cables allow remote mounting of the control box separately from the winch.
