Winch with planetary transmission

The specific characteristic of the planetary gear winches is that the transmission consists of a planetary gearbox. A planetary transmission is usually selected for winches with a working of load of more than 2 tonnes. For lighter loads it is, depending upon the application, also possible to choose a worm gear winch. Planetary gear winches are available as (among others) lifting and pulling winches.

Below you can find a few examples of these winches.
