Braden Gearmatic BG6 Hydraulic Planetary Winch

The BG6 Series Planetary winch is a high performance product designed to provide many years of service. The BG6 is powered by a high efficiency gear motor designed specifically for winch applications to provide smooth operations. The motor torque is then 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 any friction losses. Load control when lowering is maintained by the brake valve to provide smooth performance. The brake valve not only provides smooth load control but also adapts well to most any hydraulic system. The brake valve is also backed up by an internal automatic multi-disc spring applied hydraulic release safety brake. An over-running clutch permits free rotation through the brake in the hoisting direction but immediately locks up when the hoisting operation is complete. The load is held firm,, even if the engine dies or a hydraulic line breaks.
