Winches / 10kN Truck-Mounted Recovery Winch

RG - 10kN Truck-Mounted Recovery Winch

The 10kN Truck-Mounted recovery winch is designed for tension stringing of overhead cables in distribution networks. The truck is provided with a single 10kN winch with a split drum as standard. In addition, it is provided with a drum stand complete with disc brake capable of carrying a drum up to 1200mm diameter, weighing 1500kg. This configuration has been designed to operate in confined areas such as narrow streets and busy roads in metropolitan areas. The drum winch has been specially designed for pulling old overhead conductors onto a storage reel and at the same time, pulling new conductors into their place. The winch is provided with one storage reel and an overhead fairlead which reciprocates back and forth for layer winding onto the drum.

The above photo, taken looking down on the truck, shows the layout of the winch with generous access provided for operators. Chains are provided in place of fixed handrails to make it easy to access all parts of the winch using forklift or other apparatus. All hydraulic componentry is readily accessible via removable panels for service purposes.

The operator enclosure is provided with safety mesh screen on all sides giving the maximum level of protection. Enclosure is accessed via a door on the kerb side.

When operating the winch at 10kN line pull for re-conductoring overhead lines, the cable is run through a fairlead layer winding device and onto the split drum.

The drums are split type metal construction and can easily be removed from their carriers. The winch is provided with a load monitoring system that indicates the line pull.
