The quick release of a winch drum under load was the demand of the defence machine builder. This movement was needed to tune a military installation.
This special winch with a pull load of 2500 kg can be set into free spool with the aid of a Quick Release attachment. The drum of the winch is suited for a 50 mm wide webbing to pull the load with a hand crank or an air driven motor.
An adjustable slipping drum brake prevents the coming loose of the webbing at the end of the free spool track. A build inn overload protection prevents damage of the installation by the operator. Cams and handle bars on the winch make a quick mounting possible.
