Even with the addition of the compressor, the Warn unit still offers the reliable security for self-recovery with a 5.2 feet-per-minute line speed with 9,500 pounds of load, and 4.2 fpm with 12,000 pounds. However, this is not the machine for long continuous pulling without going to a double line pull due to the built-in thermal protection of the motor, which will shut down the winch for cooling under extreme conditions. This safeguard may slow some severe multipull recovery situations, but also keeps the motor safe for future work both in pulling cable and pumping air.
