Worm Gear Winch

The WG-01 device is a worm gear winch used for lifting and lowering a load. It can be used as a primary man-riding winch if used with a suitable backup and rescue device. When it is fitted to tripods*, the system is ideal for confined space activities.

Manufactured of carbon steel, the external case is harder and stronger than stainless steel, making it a sturdy and highly durable worm gear winch. The 20-meter galvanized wire rope gives additional corrosion protection to extend the device lifespan.
