PW 17 Muli - The professional winch
| Optimal rolling-up of the steel cable and optimal
transfer of tractive power
In order to manage 1.7 tons with such a small and light winch, it
is necessary not to waste power unnecessarily. This is possible with
the PW17 winch by not modifying the diameter of the capstan head.
This method enables constant tractive power as well as a constant
tractive speed. For transferring these 17kN, you just have to wind
6 revolutions of the steel cable round the capstan head. The steel
cable is rolled up into the separate steel cable storage by the tractive
power of the winch, which, of course, is very helpful and considerably
increases the steel cable's durability. There is place for 60m steel
cable with a diameter of 7.2mm in this steel cable storage, but due
to the capstan method, it is possible to use any steel cable length
without the steel cable storage.

| Always everything under control
The weight to be pulled is sometimes underestimated, which can, for
example, result in an overtaxing of the motor or in a damaged steel
cable. This, however, also means than it can come to different dangerous
situations. Thanks to simple security functions, however, the PW17
winch has every situation under control. If the weight to be pulled,
for example, is too heavy so that the motor's number of revolutions
decreases, coupling takes off. In this instance, the reverse running
locking system prevents the slipping back of the load. Normally, this
reverse running locking system is locked, but if it is necessary to
take tension out of the steel cable, you only need to apply the brake
lever with one finger and the tension of the steel cable slowly decreases.
In the case of an extreme overtaxing, a special pin interrupts the
connection between motor and gear. This prevents serious damage at
the gear and at the chainsaw
Winch with capstan method
The huge tractive power of 17kN is possible thanks to a single capstan
head winch with integrated high-performance planetary gear, which
enables constant tractive power as well as a constant tractive speed.
Steel cable storage
There is place for 60m of our special steel cable, but any steel
cable length can be used.
The usability of the winch is very comfortable. The supporting frame
supports the machine against the tree and is especially ideal for
the usability of the machine without loads.
