Set up and function

Thanks to its lightweight design the W-10 crawler cable winch can be used in many applications in the wood and forest industries as well as in the construction industry. The crawler cable winch is excellently suited for construction and as a hoisting device for a wide variety of applications. The hydrostatic drive unit allows the crawler cable winch to be very easily and safely operated. Its speed and agility in rough terrain is another feature of the winch, thanks to its hydraulic caterpillar drive. The simple and light construction of the crawler cable winch permits it to be quickly and easily converted into a caterpillar tipper and for transporting diverse materials. The Wyssen cable spool drive or other hydraulic devices can also be connected to the W-10 crawler cable winch. The modular construction means that the crawler cable winch can be adapted to the individual requirements of each customer.
