Carbon Winches were designed and engineered by an Australian Offroad Business KPD Industries. A 4 year project began in 2012 to build a winch that would surpass all options that were available at the time. The Carbon Winch brand was launched in June 2016 and since then has developed a solid reputation for reliability and toughness being tested in some of the harshest environments in Australia and overseas including Iceland and the Middle East.

Many other products on the market simply don't cut it in the Australian Outback including some very popular world renowned brands so carbon built there own. Now is the time to show the world the quality and reliability they have developed.

*warranty does not cover damage from water ingress. This winch is not sealed, kinda like an older warn winch, built to last, with a bit of TLC here and there, it will last the distance. If you do go through water, the best thing to do is to power out the full length of the rope all the way under power and back in, do this 2 or 3 times to heat up the motor and disperse any water that may be inside.
