10kN/25kN 3-Drum Skid-Mounted Dual Purpose Recovery Winch

Product Overview

The dual-purpose 3-Drum recovery winch has been specially designed for pulling old overhead conductors onto a storage reel and at the same time pulling the new conductors into their place. The winch is provided with 3 storage reels and an overhead fairlead which reciprocates back and forth for layer winding onto the drums.

This winch can also be used for pulling underground cables in Mode No. 2. When set in this mode, the winch on the kerb side only is operated. This winch has a line pull of 25kN and hauls cable through a universal fairlead which can pull at any angle and will rotate 360°. This winch is normally used in conjunction with steel non-rotating wire cable.

Photo from the rear of the truck shows the all angle fairlead on the left hand side and directly behind it the 25kN drum inserted into the winch frame. On the right hand side you can see one of the standard split drums inserted into the winch frame.

When operating the winch in Mode No. 1 i.e. with 3 drums at 10kN line pull for re-conductering overhead lines, the winch drum on the left hand side is replaced with a split drum the same as that shown on the right hand side in the photo and conductors are run through the fairlead/roller system shown in the photo at the top.

The drums are split-type metal construction and can be easily removed from their carriers. One fixed type heavy duty drum for hauling cables at 25kN line pull is also provided. The winch is provided with a load monitoring system that indicates line pull. The unit has an operator enclosure manufactured from wire mesh and has its own power pack. The winch unit is skid-mounted and is designed to be put on the back of a flat-top truck using quick-release container locks.

    • Maximum line pull 10 kN per drum (measured mean diameter) or 25kN on one winch only.
