Can I fit a Warn 6HP motor to my XD9000?

We are often asked will a Warn 6HP motor fit fit XD9000 Warn.  The answer is yes but we don't recommend it.  Read on to find out why...

Warn XD9000

The Warn 6HP motor is from the 9.5XP winch.  This motor is timed to run faster and with more torque in the counter clockwise rotation.  The standard fitment to the XD9000 winch is either the 4.5 short or long motors SKU 77893 or 77892.  The 6HP motor also also longer than other Warn motors 200mm from the drum motor support mounting face to the end of the motor heatsink.

The additional torque of the 6HP motor will will certainly increase the pulling power of your XD9000, it will also add significant pressure to the gearbox.  We've seen several XD9000 winches end in a catastrophic gearbox failure with the 6HP motor fitted, hence we do not recommend this upgrade.
