Ramsey H246 and HY246 winches have been developed for use in a tough machinery moving environment.

In the 3.6 tonne capacity range there is no equal – even in applications where plant is driven to load or unload – and the winch is used as a steady line.

Other applications are wide and varied – and include recovery vehicles where the application demands heavy duty, such as salvage moving vehicles and underlifts – the self braking feature ensures high levels of safety.

The H246 or HY246 are ideally suited for underfloor mounting. See also BH550 – (5 tonne) and H89 – (9 tonne) hydraulic winches.
