These are powerful winches and fast compressors and they are convenient.
I do NOT recommend them !
The problem is: The same motor and relay operate both the winch and the compressor. If either the motor or the ralay fail you not only don’t have a winch, you don’t have a compressor either.
Winches are very seldom used and only run for short periods . If you travel with a Group it is likely will not use your winch for years. When you do, it is usually only for a couple of minutes run time.
You use your compressor just about every time you go 4 Wheeling. It also runs for a long time airing up 4 tires. Since you are using the same motor/relay as the winch you put a lot of “Miles” on them.
Another problem is, the Power Plant winch/compressor is mounted on the front of your 4×4 where it is exposed to lots of dirt. There is no way to lubricate it or to really clean it. Airing up 4 large tires takes time and the compressor gets hot causing it to fail over time. Since you use it almost every trip it gets a lot more hours on the motor & relay than a winch would get.
I’ve had my Power Plant for about 10 – 12 years and my 4 th motor just failed. I’ve also had 2 relays fail. Each time the motor repair costs more than a good portable compressor or inexpensive winch costs.
The only place to have a Warn winch repaired is at Tri-County Gear near Ontario CA. They don’t carry parts and neither does the factory. Spare parts are built to order. That means two trips to Ontario. 1 to diagnose the problem and order the parts and another to install them. It takes a day to go to Ontario, have the problem diagnosed and come home. Then another trip to have the winch repaired a week or two later when the parts arrive.
One can buy a couple of good portable compressor and 1 or 2 less expensive winches cheaper than a Warn Power Plant Compressor/Winch .
I do not recommend buying a Warn Power Plant Winch/Compressor combo.
