The W-90 cable winch is primarily used as a drive unit for cableways on building sites where high tractive forces are required. When fitted with a grooved pulley or a capstan ring, the cable winch can be used as a circular drive wheel for a material cableway. The grooved pulley or the capstan ring can be easily fitted or removed. The W-90 cable winch is fitted with a charge-air cooled 4 cylinder Deutz turbo-diesel motor with 129 kW or for higher performance, the 6 cylinder Deutz turbo-diesel motor with 194 kW, also charge-air cooled. The cable winch is ideally suitable for our MSK 2 and MSK 3 motorised skyline cranes and also for our carriages, with or without trailers, for heavy load capacities.

Due to the large cable drum the W-90 has a significantly larger cable capacity than the W-30 and the W-40. The W-90 cable winches are equipped with the same modern control system for automatic operation on the W-40/175. Furthermore the separate diesel connection on the cable winch allows it to be connected to an external diesel tank. The W-90 cable winch is also modular in construction, as are all Wyssen cable winches, so that it can be adapted to the individual requirements of each customer.
