The WARN® VR family of 12V DC winches are engineered and tested by WARN to outperform and outlast the competition in light truck, trailer, and light industrial applications. The VR is driven by a powerful motor designed specifically for winching and features a waterproof Albright contactor for excellent electrical reliability.
