Braden Gearmatic BG4 Hydraulic Planetary Winch

The BG4 Series Planetary winch is a high performance product designed to provide many years of service. The BG4 is powered by a high efficiency motor designed specifically for winch applications to provide smooth operation. Motor torque is transmitted and multiplied by the highly efficient computer-aided designed gear train to the winch drum. All rotating components are supported by anti-friction bearings and run in oil to minimize friction losses. Load control when lowering is maintained by the brake valve to provide smooth reliable performance. The brake valve not only provides smooth load control, but adapts well to most any hydraulic system. The brake valve is also backed up by a spring applied, hydraulically released safety brake. The safety brake is an internal multi disc unit whose operation is completely automatic. The load is held firm, even if the engine stalls or a hydraulic line breaks.
