Charles, ours is the 28 volt model. Depending on your winches, the new 18 v model is reported by some to be adequate. I have no experience with such, and won't comment.

There have been rumors that the 28 v line has been discontinued, and for sure they have never been available in Australia. Again, no knowledge on my part.

Good luck in your search!
