    I just traded a welder for this 24V winch but have no idea what brand or pull capacity it has. I traded for it because I have a BJ40 and thought the 24V winch system would be compatible. The aluminum information plate has had most of the information worn off and The only thing I recognize is the "24V " . There is also a "LC8" or something like that stamped as well. Any help would be appreciated.

    my guess is it is the warn 8274. Do a serch on winches "warn 8274" and you will get a lot of info. Try the outfitting section.

    That's an old Warn 8274 or sometimes called upright. 8000lbs and the fastest line speed of any winch. (I think shes still the king)

    Looks like my Warn 8274. That piece of chain is attached to the free-spool actuator rod.

    I have yet to activate the beast so I can't say for sure if it has a free spool but there is a manual dog release on the ratchet teeth similar to what you find on a come-a-long.

    Kootenay Cruzen, I grew up in Nelson. Was at the first Kootenay Cruisers meeting up at the Morning Mountain chalet.

    Thanks for the input, I will begin my search with the warn website!

    I was lucky, the camo paint job didn't cost me extra...
