RCX: 12,000-Lb Winch Recovery System with Steel Cable

Manufacturer: Rough Country Suspension Systems

Part Number: RS12000

Weight (Lbs): 91

You'll never see a mud hole the same way again! Our high-powered, high-quality recovery solutions are durable, strong, and sure to come in handy when the situation gets a little murky. Each unit features Series Wound motors which are extremely efficient at higher speeds and less prone to overheating compared to Permanent Magnet motors. Speeds range from 5.5-HP on 9,500-Lb capacity units to a staggering 6-HP on 12,000-Lb units. Better still, Rough Country Recovery Systems utilize a 3-stage planetary gear train boasting a 265:1 gear ratio; allowing enormous torque in such a small housing. All winches include a free wireless remote for easy operation, and a replaceable Clevis hook for convenience.

Tips For Safe Winch Operation:
  • Always take your time when winching, do not rush to engage or disengage the winch or position the cable
  • Make sure you fully engage or disengage the winch to prevent damage to the winch
  • Remember the winch controller may have to be used to loosen the winch to allow the engage or disengage lever to be moved - Never force the lever as damage can occur
  • Always be sure of your hook mounting point
  • Always lay something over the cable if using a steel cable model winch to dampen the cable in case of cable failure
  • Clear the area of any and all persons and vehicles
