Lone Star Marine GX4 Drum Winch


Performance, reliability and raw power in a wide frame.


Lone Star Marine GX4 Drum Winch

The GX4 is the answer for large capacity trailer boat and commercial fisherman.

This model has been created for the XHD loads and structural  integrity with a 37 mm solid machined shaft, 8 mm frame, and 25mm solid frame stiffener.

Thanks to the well oversize gearing and motor, this unit can easily be fitted to boats to 12 mm 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.
