Winch Load Indicator
When in the middle of a recovery operation, you will not want to over tax your winch's motor. With the proprietary Winch Load Indicator lights found on the XRC Gen3's handle, this will never be a problem. Always know what kind of stress you are putting on your winch with lights indicating: Ready to Use (Blue), Loading (Green), Max Load (Yellow), and Overload (Red).

Multi-feature Remote
Even the winch remote was completely redesigned with the user in mind. On top of the Load Indicator, it comes with a built-in flashlight and a dual magnet mount. This combo feature allows you to secure the flashlight beam in a fixed position without having to hold the light in place, saving you time and frustration in low light situations.
