Wireless remote for Arctic Cat 1436-187 winch

Recommended Posts

I bought a new 2012 425i this past Tuesday and installed the Arctic Cat 1436-187 winch. I cant find a listing for a wireless remote or cross reference # for one from Warn. I called Warn and they said even though it is a Warn winch the Warn wireless will not work because A.C. has their own wiring. I find this hard to swallow since the stock controller is just a 3 pole momentary rocker switch. Might have to change an end or 2 but there has to be a way

Has any one else converted one of these to wireless & what part/kit or brand did you did you use?

I think I will also try to leave my toggle hooked up in case of a dead remote battery.

Have you called the dealer?

Yes the dealer thinks the one Warn lists will work but Warn claims the winches with the Arctic Cat name will not interchange because the wiring is different. Also the Arctic Cat Dealer quoted me $50 more then I have found the Warn one listed other places. I think I will just order one and If I cant make it work I will resell it on eBay.

My guess is they are all the same with different wire ends. I have the technology to overcome that problem but was hoping some one else had already done it so I don't work my brain to hard

Is there a wiring diagram for the remote? I might be able to help. Also call another dealer and get their opinion, try country cat they are very helpful there.

I can't see why that remote would not work for you. I seriously doubt the wiring is "different" just because its rebranded for Arctic Cat.

This listing shows it is compatible.

High Lifter Products - WARN Wireless Control/Remote Upgrade Kit

I attached a diagram of the winch, so it will help with tracing the wires out.

I also found a PDF of installing the wireless control, Looks real easy and should work with the Arctic Cat version. MAYBE the wire colors differ then the diagram, but I doubt it.

I see no reason why it won't work, all it does is the same as the rocker switch, only remotely.

Thanks a bunch. That answered my question. That is exactly what mine looks like less the standard remote plug. And I see I can leave my handle bar mounted switch. Now if I could just come up with a wired switch for a 2010 model winch because they bolt directly to the bottom of the arctic cat control.

FYI That wireless unit is on ebay for $139

      Hi Folks;
      Has anybody on here installed a winch on a 2003 Magnum 2x4? I am using a Cycle Country adapter plate (only one I could find), but am having a bit of trouble getting it all to fit properly, and am looking for someone that may have done this install and/or may have some pics of the installation.
      Thanks!

      My mother has just developed a fairly serious case of sciatica, which is a condition where you have some serious leg pain as the result of a pinched sciatic nerve. One of the exercises she does in physical therapy is simply the therapist holding onto her foot and pulling away from her hips as she lays on her back on a table. To replicate this exercise at home they have recommended an inversion table (where you turn upside down and hang from your feet), but since she's not too keen on this idea I'm trying to figure out how to replicate this exercise...which is where the idea of a remotely operated winch comes in.
      I don't really have a wide range of knowledge when it comes to what equipment is out there that can help me accomplish this goal, but I'm not too shabby at designing things and since I just installed a superwinch on my grizz this is the first idea I've come up with.
      Basically I'm imagining using some kind of winch whose rope would be worked through a pulley system that would end attached to a shoe which Mom would put on, lie down and use the remote switch to gently stretch the leg.
      - Winch (if an ATV winch) would be powered by a 12v car battery hooked up to a trickle charger
      - Safety mechanisms would include...
      - a light switch dimmer inline between the 12v battery and the winch so speed can be adjusted.
      - possibly using one of those stretchy rubber exercise resistance bands in the line segment to regulate and ease the pulling
      - a remote power cut off switch paired with the remote 'in/out' switch
      Honestly I could just go ahead and make this system myself, and I'm fairly sure it would work, but I thought I'd bounce this idea off a mechanically minded community to see if there are any ideas how I could improve on the design.
      Since I'm only familiar with ATV winches at this point that's what I've imagined using. But if anyone is aware of a 110v based winch that would be more appropriate, that would surely help in simplifying powering the system since it'll be located indoors. Only requirement for the winch would be that it would need both an in and out function operated by a remote switch. And since the winch would only need to pull between 10-20 lbs it wouldn't need to be nearly as beefy as the ATV type.
      Sorry for the long write up here but I'm certainly glad for your time and open to your opinions and suggestions.

      Putting in a SW Terra 35 and I've decided the crimp I'm looking at here isn't something I can reproduce so I need to figure out who to take this wire to get the end put back on after I get it shortened to where I need it. Never having delt with wires this big I have no idea who I could go to just locally to get this done. What kind of (electrical?) business would deal with stuff like this?

      Just got my first ATV, a '11 700 Grizz and planning on doing some trail riding soon. First piece of equipment I'm adding is a winch and I'm needing some suggestions for something that would be good for my kind of riding but comes at a decent price. Usually I try to get quality stuff (Warn) but since I'm needing to conserve denero right now I figure this winch is something that (at least for me) doesn't have to be crazy great/expensive. Although I'd still like to get something that's decent quality and can pull well, in my middle age I hardly think I'll be voluntarily launching into any terrain that has the potential to get me too stuck...thus I doubt I'll be using the winch that often.
      Anybody have a suggestion for a model that's decent quality for around say $300 bucks? Doesn't have to be built to be used time after time but quality does still count.
      Thanks
