Carbon Winches

Carbon Winches have been developed and engineered by KPD Industries right here in Australia!

KPD have been in the offroad game in Australia for over 10 years and have been selling their own products for 6 years now, and 4WD DIY is happy to help them flood the market with Aussie Products!

You can be rest assured that all Carbon Winches are IP67 Rated to ensure that you get the best performance offroad in all conditions.

The Warranty also backs this up, with a Lifetime Warranty on Mechanicals, and a 5 Year Warranty on Ingress and Electrical Components, which is more than you can say about some of the other budget winches on the market!

Also, with Synthetic Line, the Carbon 12,000lb winch comes in at 23.45kg, making it the lightest 12,000lb winch on the market, meaning that you aren’t overly stressing your car, adding to the fuel economy, or instantly reaching for the money bucket to throw heavy duty springs in the car.

We can also leave you with this quote from Tony Vaughn at Getabout Training Services about the awesome Carbon Winch:

I have now had the Carbon Winch fitted for a few months and it has been used in training a number of times.I cannot speak highly enough about the operation of this winch. From the easy to use free spool handle to the fantastic remote.
I tend to use the winch with the remote only for demonstrations but with the corded control when winching under load during training.I have used many other manufacturers winch’s, Warn, TJM, VRS, Kingone, Ironman and many cheapies.
In my view the Carbon Winch is one of the best, it is smooth and very quiet compared to my ‘other’ winch on the 100 Series.
It’s great to get a piece of equipment that works as described and works every time.
It is absolutely value for money.
