Reliable and affordable, the Goodwinch Bow Motor 6.8HP 12V was designed to provide high power & torque levels. As long as the winch mounting can accommodate the motors additional length it can be universally fitted to almost any electric winch.

When compared to other commonly used motors (like the Warn XP 6HP unit), the Bow Motor 2 features a low amperage draw.

These motors offer greater high speed and mid range torque and have faster off-line retrieval speeds than the Bow Motor 1, and are similar to the Warn XP. The Bow Motor 2 is a very tough and reliable motor and is favored for “over-volting” (this is when 24v is passed through 12v motors) by many top crews including Croatia Trophy winner Jim Marsden, Challenge winner Simon Buck, Malaysian Rainforest, Steve Gittens and Chris Abel. Keep in mind this motor does not like stalling and will be damaged if this happens.

An "O" ring seal on the end cap is used to waterproof this motor, and we recommend sealing the F1, F2 and A terminals with silicon sealant upon fitment.

These motors feature heavy duty copper armature windings, which are copper welded to the commutator, with highly efficient roller bearings at each end.

It has four enormous long lasting brushes that enable the motor to run cooler.

If fitting to the older Warn 8274 with a keyway type armature shaft, then you will also need to replace the pinion gear with the later type Splined Pinion Gear.

The Bow Motor 2 produces 6.8HP @ 5000RPM.

Why Shop at 4x4 Down Under?

We know that you have a lot of options out there, and we’re incredibly grateful that you’re considering spending your hard earned money with us. We like to think we stand out from the crowd in a few ways.

Excellent & Honest Service

We try and provide the best pre and after sales service possible. If you have a question we’re here to help, and if we don’t know the answer we’ll tell you and then do our absolute best to find the answer for you. We’re also here to guide you to the best possible outcome for you. A lot of stores will simply try to up-sell you on the most expensive option. That’s not how we operate. We want to build a relationship with our customers, and the only way to do that is by being honest and direct.
4x4 Down Under is built on honesty and integrity. For example when you make a purchase with us we only charge your account once we confirm the product is ready for dispatch.
Although we like to guarantee everything on our store is available we’re not perfect and mistakes do happen. If something turns out to not be available we’ll let you know immediately and you have the option to cancel your order or wait for more stock to arrive. Should you not want to wait the order is voided, and there’s no waiting a week to get your money back (it’s instant!).

No Sales Gimmicks 

When you shop at 4x4 Down Under you don’t have to worry about:
  • Annoying and dishonest ’Sales Timers’ that simply reset every few hours and are there to coerce you into buying.
  • Dishonest “low stock” labels, another coercive sales gimmick.
  • False “John just bought a…” alerts. Our customer alerts (bottom left) are 100% true and we're proud of them.
  • Being bombarded by trust badges and labels everywhere you look that mean nothing. 
  • We don't spam! Your information is safe with us. It will never be shared or sold, or used to fill your inbox with garbage.
