Lone Star Marine GX1 Drum Winch


Lone Star Marine GX-1 Drum Winch micro unit can easily be fitted to boats to 6m for saltwater use and much larger for freshwater applications.


Lone Star Marine GX1 Drum Winch is the smallest GX series winch on offer, it packs high speed and unmatched torque in a micro frame.

Thanks to the well oversized gearing (4 times the surface area of gearing in other 200mm drum winches) and 600w motor, this micro unit can easily be fitted to boats to 6m for saltwater use and much larger for freshwater applications.

How to choose a Drum Winch?

The best method of choosing a winch for your vessel is to correlate the desired amount, size of rope and chain for your needs, then choose the appropriate sized model based on drum size and capacity.

How not to choose a winch

Motor size. One company’s 500w motor is another company’s 1500w motor. “Motor Size”, whether stated ‘’spec’’ or physical longevity. Not all winch companies comply to IEC motor ratings to duty cycle. The ‘stated wattage’ may be to IEC spec, maximum properly rated motors such as LSM, motor output is only relevant in relation to the drum diameter and gearing, not boat length. LSM winches are held to International Standards so you can rest assured our drives are conservatively rated. All LSM winch models use well oversized drives per drum diameter, more power than you’ll ever need and are purpose built to pull the
heaviest possible rope and chain per recommended boat size.
