Actually the 24v might work to ur advantage looked at one the amps are lower using the 24v vs the 12v so I will ask the electrian at work tomorrow see what he says.

it should just spin twice as fast, the only question is reliability, cheaper winches spin slow anyways, not shure if it will move fast enuf to get overheated and start flinging soder everywhere? let me know what the sparky say's, thanks...

difference is if you hook a 12v winch to 24v power you let the smoke out and let me tell ya its hard to catch all that smoke and get it back in there

other option is to duty cycle it with your finger just quick winching bursts 50% duty cycle should do it

My boss has a 24v 8274 in his landcruiser. I have never seen a winch pull so hard, so quick and so viscious in my life! badass!!

More windings that are made from thinner guage wire.

I would not reccomend trying to run a 12V winch off of 24V. It will work... for a short time, but you would quickly overheat the motor and either burn out the brushes or short out the windings.

Like they said, you can run a 12v on 24v but it wont last very long. I've done it on old diesel starter motors that don't turn fast enough to flash up.

Electrician at work says u can hook it up to only 1 battery and run it assuming that there is a pair but he says its hard on the batteries but I think u would be better off with a 24v winch as from what I read ur current draw will be less then the 12v trying to pull the same load which will be easier on ur charging system.

Exactly what would happen.

I suppose that converting to 12V isn't an option?

24V winch, last thing you want is to be stuck then burn a winch then be stuck with a burnt winch that you will have to fix when you get home; that is just depressing. You could get one of those 12V chargers and its own battery so the winch has its own circuit then you will have a nice circuit for 12V stuff like GPS and cell phone adapters for when you get stuck. Truckers end up getting a 24-12V power supply just for that purpose.
