Auxiliary winch

Detaillerte Darstellung (inklusvive Beschreibung der einzelnen Elemente) der HAFO Hilfswinde


The hydraulic auxiliary cable winch was developed for mounting on larger forest cable winches. The function is to pull the heavy winch rope uphill to the tree trunks. You can easily pull the heavy rope up to 170 meters uphill on the hillside of a steep slope, just by using the light auxiliary rope first instead of carrying the heavy rope yourself.


  • Easy mounting with a quick change bracket
  • Portable due to low weight
  • Use with trunk adapter
  • Adjustable winch tower
  • Easy connection to double-use control unit
  • Can be combined with radio

In practice...

  1. The end of the auxiliary rope is attached to the winch rope including chains.
  2. Attach the aluminum pulley and take the auxiliary rope twice
  3. Attach the pulley to the tree with a noose and pull up the rope.
