Humvee Spec

Mile Marker winch range

Mile Marker winch range


Local company Aftermarket Sales (AMS) has been appointed as sole importers/distributors of the US-made Mile Marker winch range. The hydraulic range, which is specified by the US military for its Humvee and other tactical vehicles used around the world, uses the OEM power steering pump as its power source. This avoids any potential for battery drain. These units have to perform for years without service or adjustment under all conditions, and withstand any type of abuse. The built-in governor on the hydraulic units ensures it is impossible to overload the power steering pump. The Mile Marker electric winch range offers great value, superb performance for pound, and long life as these units are sealed to IP68 spec.
