The GW500D is a diesel-hydraulic winch, consisting of two parts (power unit and drum). The diesel engine of the latest generation model with lowest emission levels has a power of 403 kW and achieves a line pull of up to 170 kN (empty drum). This very powerful winch is mainly used in heavy-duty material ropeways with up to 20 tons of payload on large construction sites. During the construction of power plants in the mountains, pipelines, pressure pipelines, and other construction projects, heaviest loads can be  transported very efficiently using the GW500D. The winch reaches a  line speed of almost 6 m/s.

With its two independent brake systems (safety brake and operation brake), the winch offers a high level of safety. Furthermore, the power unit disposes of a high brake power capacity of up to 380 kW continuous braking  output.

The GW500D offers an optional winding device and can be used with circular drive.
