LSM build products with consumer satisfaction in mind first & foremost, over the long term. This has led LSM to pioneer many innovations in the field with several worlds first designs and over 12 Patents and Design Registrations under their belt for innovation. Lone Star’s current GX Series feature the first and only IP68 motors with proven certification (Dec 2015). They feature oversized drum shafts, a twin shaft bearing design for less side load on the transmission, Italian Manufactured gears and cases, oversized custom designed and manufactured motors, an Emergency Manual Release as standard, and a 316Ss frame, spool, and shaft construction.
GX Series motors are the highest speed and torque models on the market today per drum size, and are made for real longevity, not to an easy sales pitch. GX Series motors feature a 6160 T6 hard anodised aluminium external construction, not stainless steel. Find out why here : Aluminium vs. Stainless in Thermal Dissipation
GX Series are the fastest on power down and up under load per drum size on the market. Average mid size drum winches will drop at around 100-120ft per minute. Ours do it at around 150. Our winches also retrieve under load at about the same speed as they pay out. They are also extremely power efficient, only using what is required to do the job! The working scope on the GX Series is wider than many others on the market. This is the sort of performance that just cant be faked, and is why the GX series is so popular with commercial operators. All this means you are purchasing a fast, ultra reliable winch right out of the box with no clutches to fail or add ons. At LSM Reliability is paramount.
Before you spend $1,500-$3,000 or more on a new anchor winch, view the drum winch shootout:
” I started looking seriously into this market in 2008 and pretty quickly figured out that while there were some great operators & products available, there were also poor quality products & operators taking advantage of the consumers lack of knowledge in this industry or relying on a sale by sale business model with large profit margins. From the outside looking in for the average consumer it was near impossible to tell the difference. I knew the demand was there for more affordable-high quality products and there was also plenty of room for improvement so we started with a business model based on volume and excellent customer support. After only a few short years and assembling a team with a shared vision our innovation really came into its own, we now have over a dozen original Worlds First designs under our belt, hold numerous IP registrations & patents on a variety of products, and are recognised across the globe for innovation & reliability. Our reputation for excellence is hard earned and its obvious leading the drum anchoring system industry is not something we take lightly.”
