Worm wheel winch

The specific characteristic of the worm gear winches is that the transmission consists of a worm gearbox. The advantage of this is that the winch is self braking. Worm gear winches are capable of handling working loads of up to around 3 tonnes. For higher loads it is usually better to select a winch with planetary transmission. Worm gear winches are available as both lifting and pulling winches.

Below you can find a few examples of these winches.
