The brake mechanism uses a split-shoe brake acting against a cylindrical drum. Counterclockwise rotation of the handle releases the brake by removing the axial pressure at the conical faces. The load begins to fall and the pivoted masses swing out under centripetal acceleration and reapply the brake. Releasing the handle applies the brake for positive holding of the load.
Rope life is substantially increased, with drum diameters, a minimum of 20 times the diameter of the rope.
All gears are fully enclosed, increasing operational protection and making the winch ideal for use in adverse conditions.
A centrifugal dynamic brake is incorporated. This governs aximum speed and prevents over speeding of the load. In addition, a load-activated brake is incorporated, allowing the operator to stop and hold the load securely in any position. This unique braking system also prevents the winch handle from recoiling.
