That is the future: Winches for Europe!
The new European Standard EN 14492-1 "Power Driven Winches" sets the scale for safe winch operation. Most products on the market do not meet the requirement of double safety! For the Ramsey Winch Company the new standard is the reason to design a European product line.
Special features of Ramsey winches to European Standard:
the new rope anchor
under load, the steel rope is pulled deeper into the drum
drum diameter : rope diameter 9:1
big drums mean less stress for the ropes, for longer life time and better spooling
rope with safety hook
Ramsey supplies winches to EN 14492-1 without ropes, S+H supplies ropes to European standard, with double safety
for electric winches and emergency-off valves for hydraulic winches cut off the winch drive immediately once they are hit
for electric winches cut off the power when the rated load is exceeded; overload valves, which are installed with hydraulic winches, limit the hydraulic pressure
in English, French, German and Spanish
the line pull of the winch is rated in kN:
1 kN (Kilo Newton) is equivalent to a weight of about 100 kgs
