For over 62 years, Ramsey Winch has been designing and building quality vehicle-recovery winches evolved from numerous years of field experience. Based upon this experience, the newest member of Ramsey's Patriot-series off-road self-recovery winches is the Profile 9500. As a member of the Patriot lineage, the Profile 9500's solenoid has been separated from the motor and drum to allow the unit to be mounted in areas of limited space or for restricted bumper-mount situations where a low profile is essential. The separate weather-resistant solenoid assembly is able to be mounted in a variety of locations, including the interior of the vehicle, and it is grounded directly to the battery.
The Profile 9500's power is derived from a torque-laden 5.5hp, 12-volt DC series-wound electric reversible motor that is able to pull 9,500 pounds. For specialized applications, the winch is available in a 24-volt configuration. The 5.5hp motor is able to turn the winch drum and cable at a line speed of 35.4 feet per minute at the first layer with no load line speed via Ramsey's three-stage planetary gear system that creates a gear reduction ratio of 138:1. The 105 feet of 5/16-inch galvanized aircraft cable with replaceable clevis hook can be upgraded with Ramsey's Technora synthetic winch rope that provides excellent heat resistance and increased durability and safety. A cam-action clutch can be disengaged from the planetary gears for effortless free-spooling of the winch cable. When the clutch is re-engaged, an added level of safety and performance is introduced via an automatic load-retaining brake assembly which assists in holding the tension of the line. A four-way stainless steel roller fairlead minimizes damage to the winch cable and is easily maintained.
Included with each Patriot Profile 9500 is a set of 2-gauge battery cables and connectors that reach to 6 feet (additional lengths are available separately). The unit may be operated by two methods: with the standard 12-foot wired-pendant remote-control unit or with the optional wireless remote-control unit that allows safe operation from as far away as 50 feet.
Considering Ramsey's history of quality and excellence in manufacturing, there should be no doubt in anyone's mind that when the Patriot Profile 9500 is on the scene the task at hand will be handled with speed and performance. The limited lifetime warranty and the fact that the unit is made in the USA virtually guarantee years of hassle-free service.
