20 Most Recent Electric Superwinch LP8500 Series Utility & Off Road Winch LP 8500 12 Volt DC Electr Questions & Answers


Here is a sample of how to wire a winch. I have built my own box with relays to swap the power for reverse etc I'm not sure if you have to buy an extra kit where someone has done the work for you or not. It looks neater when purchased. Click here

This may help (or maybe not):
The Black wire is the ground wire, and the other two are considered Hot wires, and their
order does not matter - they carry 240 Volts AC.
So, once you identify which terminal on the solenoid is ground, connect Black to it, then just hook up the remaining two Hot wires in any order.

Not only do you need a 12 volt supply (13.8V) to operate this winch, but you also need a.) wire large enough to carry the electrical load, and b.) a power source that has the necessary current (amps) to turn the motor.

If you have wires that are too small, they will heat up and not be able to deliver the current (amps) required by the motor. If your power source is to small - it can not supply the current required. The result of either conditions is "voltage drop". This can be explained the same way your car needs a 12 volt car battery to start. If that car battery was dead, you couldn't connect eight "D" cell batteries (8 x 1.5volts = 12 volts) together and attach to the car's battery cables and expect it to start. This is because the amount of current available in the car battery is hundreds of time greater than eight "D" cell batteries - even though when the D cells are connected in series - both systems deliver 12 volts.

If neither of the above conditions is present, then there could be an electrical problem with the drive motor itself. This could be a shorted / melted winding or other electrical connection that is not right, even if the drum spins freely.

If the relays constantly click, your motor is shorted out and bad causing your thermal breaker to trip and open the relays. You will have to replace the motor.

It sounds like you have broken a pinion tooth. Remove the screw from the end housings and open to inspect the drive gears. Parts can be purchased from Superwinch for these or off e-Bay.

Take your voltmeter and verify your voltage at the switch. If it is 11.5 or better, try reversing the motor. Reverse direction requires less ampreage to run and should work fine, then try forward or wind.

I am wiring a Superwinch 4500 to my Yamaha Rhino.
Problem the two red wires go to the key switch.
Do they just splice into the 12 wire ?

When you say breaker, presumably you refer to an RCD?
The residual current device will trip if the amount of current in the hot wire does not equal the amount of current in the neutral or return wire. This means some current is leaking away which means the chainsaws might have developed a potentially dangerous fault or might just be the result of an excess of damp sawdust entering the motor housing through the vents - or damp has entered the tools by other means.

I find a compressed airline useful for keeping power tools internally clean and dry.

You need to use rated breaker and did you find a fault for why the breaker shorted?

It cannot be connected to 120 volt ... this is a 12 volt photoeye that integrates into the screw terminals on power pack.
Following link has some basic information for connecting the photoeye

Connecting 12 batteries in series would give slightly more than 61 volts. Considering that under load voltage will drop then it should be ok. Breaker goes between battery and motor on positive wire.

Tip

Repair broken power cord


I have a 50-ft power cord for my electric pole saw. In an accident, the saw cut the power cord. It's long cable and I want to save it. My method keeps the cable lean and retain it's strength. It's not water-proof, but I never use a pole saw in a rainy day.

If you make your point of reference the flywheel (starter side) of the motor then rotation is clockwise. If your point of reference is the alternator or the end opposite the motor flywheel, then it will be CCW.
