The Bow motor 2 Plus – 12V 8HP competiton winch motor can be universally fitted to most electric winches as long as the winch mounting can accommodate the motors additional length. Designed to provide high power & torque levels with incredible reliability & at a respectable price tag.

Replacing the outgoing Bow 3 motor, this motor is faster and more powerful than the Bow 2, and is a fantastic upgrade to any winch.

This motor has the standard 20 spline armature shaft, so is a direct replacement for most winches (please note – this motor is approximately 45mm longer than a standard winch motor, so please check the clearance in your winch mount first)

Currently only available in 12V.

NOT suitable for the Warn Ti Winches.

The Bow 2 motor has an ‘O’ ring seal on the end cap to waterproof it and we recommend sealing the F1, F2 and A terminals with silicone sealant upon fitment.

*NOTE* Bow motors will be damaged if you stall them. “Stall” is when the winch motor is still working (you can hear it) and the line is not moving – STOP WINCHING to save your motor.

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

Four enormous long lasting brushes 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 Plus produces 8HP @ 6000RPM.

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.

High Quality Products & Free Shipping

Aside from the above we also offer free shipping to almost everywhere in Australia, have a great range of high quality products at excellent prices and LOVE what we do! If you still have any doubts feel free to give us a call on 1300 76 86 41, or contact us here. We'd love to hear from you.
