VERSATILE APPLICATIONS OF THE WINCHES

There are many possible applications for rope winches. They move loads by pulling horizontally or vertically by winding a rope onto a driven rope drum. Winches are used in industry, construction, transport, forestry, off-road, marine, aviation and rescue. Cranes of all kinds do not work without a suitable motor winch. Towing services use winches to pull vehicles that are no longer roadworthy onto their tow trucks or trailers. Recovery vehicles used by recovery services, the fire brigade or the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) need winches to do their work. Forestry work can hardly be done without a forestry winch. Furthermore, winches are used on cars, e.g. jeeps or SUVs. Winches are simply versatile pulling and lifting tools.

ROPE WINCHES AT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT

The fire department mainly uses motor winches. They need them on their recovery vehicles, for example, to recover crashed vehicles in the event of accidents or disasters. They often use the wire rope winches to remove blocking material. High tractive forces provided by electric or hydraulic winches are definitely required by the fire department.

WINCHES FOR THE TOW TRUCK AND HEAVY GOODS VEHICLES

Towing services also use winches very often, e.g. to be able to transport defective or crashed vehicles to the workshop. With the winch for tow trucks (electrically or hydraulically operated), unroadworthy vehicles are loaded onto the towing vehicle or the tow truck. Thus, the necessary removal can be carried out quickly and, above all, safely.

WINCHES IN THE FORESTRY INDUSTRY

In forestry work, trees have to be moved regularly, i.e. felled trees have to be pulled to certain positions in order to be able to place or stack the trunk accordingly with a crane. This is where the forestry winches are used. Forestry rope winches are often also mounted on the Unimog or tractor, which has a certain stability.

WINCHES IN THE OFFROAD SECTOR

Compact electric winches dominate the off-road sector. In this sector, they are mostly used to pull a stuck off-road vehicle, Unimog or ATV or quad back onto the road.

BOAT WINCHES

In the marine sector, winches are mainly used on boat trailers. On the one hand, the trailers are used for transport and, on the other hand, for lowering the boats into the water. For small objects, manual winches are often used, as these winches do not require any energy other than muscle power. For heavier vessels, on the other hand, electric winches are used. These can  be trailer winches to pull large trailers or even caravans.

TRACTIVE FORCES OF THE WINCHES

We offer winches with pulling forces from 0.5 to 22.6 tons. The required force is always dependent on the respective area of application. If you only want to pull a small boat onto the trailer, a small, possibly also manual winch with a pulling load of 0.5 tons is well sufficient. To pull defective cars onto a truck, we recommend winches in the 3 - 4 ton pull range. For truck salvage or in the area of the fire department or the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW), winches with 20 tons or more may well be necessary.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF WINCHES

Our winches can be divided into three product types. The distinction is based on the design of the drive.

HAND WINCHES

The hand winches are small and very compact and can also be used as portable winches. Installation and operation of these manual devices is relatively simple, because manual winches do not require additional power supply. They are operated by muscle power only via a crank to be turned. Manual operation via the hand crank limits the pulling load to a maximum of 1150 kg.

ELECTRIC WINCHES

The electric winches are devices that are operated by an electric motor and thus require electrical energy. The power supply of the electric drive of the cable drum (for retrieving the cable) is provided by the vehicle's electrical system. We supply electric winches in 12V or 24V. This allows a relatively non-complicated installation and a simple power connection on your vehicle. The maximum pulling load for the electric versions is 6800 kg.

HYDRAULIC ROPE WINCHES

To operate hydraulic winches, a hydraulic system with hydraulic oil circulation is required on the vehicle. Cable winches with hydraulically driven cable drums are robust and therefore permanently loadable. They are particularly suitable for moving heavy loads and are available from us with a pulling force of up to 22,600 kg.

WINCH ACCESSORIES

There are lots of useful accessories for winches, such as:

•       Winch cables

•       Synthetic winch ropes

•       Snatch blocks

•       Rope tensioners

•       Roller fairleads

•       Radio remote control for winches

Winches

(503)

Winches are ideal for mechanically pulling, lifting or moving heavy loads. The pulling force of our winches can be generated manually (hand winch), electrically or hydraulically. We offer a wide range of winches with different pulling forces and drive types for your individual application. Powerful motors and gearboxes combined with robust quality ensure successful operations on heavy goods vehicles, tow trucks, off-road vehicles, car transporters, as a forestry winch and much more.
