Braden Gearmatic BG8 Hydraulic Planetary Winch

The BG8A Series planetary winch is a second generation evolution of the Braden PD7A and Gearmatic GH7 winches. Improvements to the gear train and drum sealing have resulted in the grater line pulls on equal speed models and improved reliability for the entire series.

The BG8A is powered by a high efficiency gear motor designed specifically for winch applications to provide smooth operation. All rotating components are supported by anti-friction bearings and run in oil to minimize frictional losses. Load control when lowering or paying-out cable is maintained by the Braden brake valve known for its smooth operation. The brake valve not only provides smooth load control, but also adapts well to most hydraulic systems. The dynamic brake on the high speed reverse option allows the operator to lower full rated loads at three times the hoisting speed.* (*see page 5 and 6 of the attached PDF)
