The hydraulic winch is able to support the crew in the heavier duty applications, such as to work with towing gears, chain bridles and towing plates. It can handle anchors and vessels with constant power. With high strength and durability, the winch is ideal for the most demanding tasks in marine and offshore applications.
This type of winch is more complex in structure comparing to an electric winch since a hydraulic pump is required to operate the winch. What’s more, the installation of the winch requires additional pipes and fittings.
Apart from the standard winches, we also provide custom winch system to match special requirements of our customers. Contact us for a consultation!
