The Mile Marker Hydraulic Winch System has been a self-recovery icon for over 20 years. This legendary system utilises the vehicle’s OEM power steering pump as its power source. Every day, more than 200 million power steering pumps operate flawlessly. Used in all types of vehicles, under every condition, from 50 below to 135 degrees above, the pump must perform for years without service or adjustment. It has to withstand every type of abuse without failure. Having a built-in governor (the pressure relief valve), it is impossible to overload or overwork the pump.
Steering is arguably the most important function while driving, so the power steering pump has evolved into the most reliable system on vehicles today. Mile Marker chose to design a winch to use this continuous reliable power supply over the battery power used by competitors. After rigorous testing, they learned it was the right choice. The Mile Marker Hydraulic Winch can run continuously under load without any battery drain. This Hydraulic Winch System is the choice of the U.S Army, as Mile Marker became the primary self recovery outfitter for the HMMWV (Humvee) as well as many other tactical vehicles around the globe.
Internally sealed with O-Rings in every critical part makes all of Mile Marker’s Hydraulic Winches completely waterproof. Corrosion resistant exteriors features a ductile iron body (for the 12,000 pound), an aluminum body (for the 9,000 and 10,500 pound) and stainless steel tie bars and fasteners. That is why Mile Marker Hydraulic Winches are ready to take on ALL the elements.
The Mile Marker Hydraulic Winch Systems feature 6 seals throughout the assembly to keep any and all contaminants outside of the unit. The corrosion resistant, exterior construction features a ductile iron body (for the 12,000 pound), an aluminum body (for the 9,000 and 10,500 pound) and stainless steel tie bars and fasteners. Mile Marker has also implemented a submersible solenoid with marine-grade connections at the Remote Control plug and socket.
