Runva EWB Series 4×4 recovery winches

VIEWS

Let’s face it, in most 4×4 recovery situations, a good winch is crucial.

Winches are recommended for all adventure, 4×4 and overland enthusiasts. Not only will a winch get you out of many a sticky situation when you’re up to your armpits in mud, but recovery winches are an important accessory that every off-road vehicle should be fitted with. And, they’re great fun to use too!

Earlier this week we caught up with the knowledgeable Winch-In team to find out more about all the new developments and improvements in their lineup. During an informative visit to their shop, something new caught our eye and we couldn’t wait share it with our readers.

Winch-In meets Runva International
Runva is a certified international recovery winch brand that offers affordability coupled with robust product. Currently they produce a wide range of many industrial and consumer winches for overland touring, 4×4 expeditions and tours, farming endeavours, trailers and tactical vehicles that need to access particularly tough terrain globally.

You can watch their latest press release video from their official launch below

In addition to these winches being highly affordable, the good news is that they also have a limited lifetime warranty if the winch is only used as a recreational recovery winch. This already sounds like a good deal to us. The limited lifetime warranty covers against manufacturing defects inherent in workmanship and materials on all mechanical components. Electrical components such as motors, solenoids, wiring, remotes, wire connectors and associated parts have a limited five year warranty. For those that are sticklers for warranties like us, we encourage you to check with your reseller for their warranties or guarantees. That being said, any extended or limited lifetime warranty is a bonus to any purchaser and offers certain recourse against defective components.

The Runva range of winches seen below are equipped with a patented 3 stage planetary steel gear reducer for greater reliability and a longer servicing life. We were assured that all copper wiring used throughout the winch is 100% authentic and is tested for current reliability.
