Truck Mounted Utility Winches and Drive Installations 640089

Utility winches are reliable and durable pieces of equipment. Their installation on the truck chassis frame is not difficult to accomplish. However, as pure mechanical drives become more complex, the problem of proper location and configuration is intensified. In this connection, hydraulic motor drives offer improved flexibility and reduced installation problems at the sacrifice of some power loss. Although considerable progress has been made in the technical development and application of constant load utility winches and hydraulic drive installations, important advances are still to be realized, especially with regard to achieving higher efficiency and more compact design units.
