To make the winch cable unwinding easier you can choose a winch with an integrated device for unwinding. The unwinding device is electronically guided and enables safer operation of the forestry winch. It automatically stops winding the wire rope onto the drum when the end of the pulling rope approaches the unwinding device or the guide pulley and drum, thus preventing damage to the drum or pulley and enabling a longer service life.
AUTO STOP FUNCTION (limit switch)
Automatically stops the function of winding the wire rope on the drum. This function prevents: mechanical damage to the unwinding device, entanglement and damage of the wire rope.
When pulling logs with a tractor, you may encounter some obstacles on the road (hill, roots etc.). If the tractor is not able to overcome these obstacles, the unwinding function can be switched into the mode without the assistance of the unwinding device and you can continue driving with a taught wire rope between the winch and the load. The unwinding device can be turned on and off without delay (the standard model has a 1.5 sec. delay). The SMART 3in1 function ensures additional tension of the wire rope between the unwinding pulley and drum.
This function is only available with the remote controls Teleradio, Terra funk and manual console.
