Barient electric winch repair


Recommended Posts

Have a cruising friend with a Barient electric cabin top winch and the electric motor has crapped out, Anybody know what might fit, suggestions on a replacement part? where to find a used one? they probably made thousands of them , but I cant find one.

thanks in advance

Plus 1^ as long as the body isn't toaste you should be able to get it rewound and new brushes at a alternator starter shop.  Also you could try Imtra or some place like that, it may be the same as some older windlass motors.

Update, the existing motor has a couple fittings that 'should' be epoxied into the housing that have failed ,  an alternator starter shop glued them back in with a warning everything else in side is pretty shot.

Turns out Barient/Barlow which went out of business, bought by the Australian Winch company, now Hutton - Accor , part of a manufacturing that has the Barient tooling and with some input from Maxwell windlass? can offer a replacement motor assembly that bolts right on. That sounds like the direction to go.

As long as there is minimal input from Maxwell in the design.

Worst, most stupidly designed winches I've ever owned - truly in a class by themselves.

Andrew at Hutton is a super nice guy, got all our winches from him, they had some major flooding so everything was delayed but all in all good service and a good price.
