Auxiliary winches for vehicles and construction machinery

GANTNER also uses its extensive expertise in the field of winches and control technology also in winches designed for vehicles. The GANTNER mounted winches are particularly suitable for larger vehicles and construction machinery. Winches can be mounted to excavators, cranes, crawler vehicles, bulldozers; trucks thereby make them safe for steep slopes and rough terrain operation.

Winches for excavators, spider excavators, trucks and other heavy equipment have a holding brake to secure the machines and are driven by the open and closed hydraulic circuit oft he machine Optional additional functions and accessories are available such as grooved drum, winding device via a cross threaded spindle or motorize pull-out devices for rope.

The mounted winches can be described as large mounted winches – they can secure loads with more than 10 tons and capacity 200 m rope length. The rope diameter is dependent on the necessary traction, usually between 14 mm and 16 mm. GANTNER has designed and built various mounted winches in the past, partly as individual product for special vehicles or series production for winches installed on construction machines.

Case Study: Auxiliary winch for a spider excavator

When civil works need to be performed in very steep slopes, work canbe dangerous. For a safe operation, an auxiliary winch stabilizes the excavator of Menzi Muck in steepest areas. Visit the case study.

GANTNER winches at successful projects

Numerous projects in very different industries and branches could be executed successfully with GANTNER winches and other machinery. In a selction of case studies you can get an impression of how our powerful, reliable and safe winches are working.
