screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-10-36-34-amBULLDOG, a division of towing equipment supplier Cequent, announced that it is now offering an extensive line of hydraulic and DC electric winches.

According to a press release, the cost-effective winches are lightweight and flexible, have a weight capacity ranging from 2,500 to 18,000 pounds, and employ patented brake systems that focus on control and safety.

The hydraulic winches can be used for professional and commercial use. These extremely powerful winches are constructed to provide a continuous duty cycle with a two-stage planetary gear and T-handle clutch as well as dual brakes.

“We know that winches are used for a variety of jobs, so when brainstorming the specifications and features needed, it was difficult to create just one product,” said Victor Burmeister, director of new business development. “That’s why we created an array of winches for the veteran and novice alike, allowing customers to pick from a range of products to meet their specific needs.”

The electric winches are offered in two series; heavy-duty and utility duty. The heavy-duty winches are built tough with a strong, aluminum alloy housing created for use on big jobs, and are weather resistant. To reduce over-heating, a cone brake structure system is used to disperse heat and protect synthetic rope.

The utility duty winches provide a three-stage planetary gear ratio to provide a reliable performance in tough conditions, a 50-foot wire rope, a hand-held switch remote control, and have an automatic load-holding mechanical brake to avoid slippage.

The hydraulic winches are available in three different models with the weight capacity of 8,000 to 15,000 pounds. Each winch is backed by a limited lifetime mechanical warranty against manufacturer defects. The DC electric winches are offered in six heavy duty models ranging from 6,000- to 18,000-pound weight capacity, and six utility duty models equipped to withstand 2,500 to 12,000 pounds. These winches are backed by a limited lifetime warranty on all mechanical parts and electrical components are backed for one year.
