  • The secondary brake system consists of notching wheel, 2 pawls, and 2 special tension springs, all stainless steel construction.
  • Continuous braking system prevents free-wheeling of drum.
  • Secondary brake activates only when drum is free-wheeling.
  • Built-in, shock-absorbing mechanism for secondary brake.
  • Cable guide for correct placement on drum.
  • Optional built-in, shock-type counterweight.
  • Stainless steel handle with 3 positions:  transportation, working – 12” long to rotate cable up and down, and short handle 6” long for faster lowering capability.

UH120M Material Winch

Like the UH120P Personnel Winch, our material winch is engineered and manufactured to the highest possible quality.  Appearance-wise, it looks the same as the personnel winch except it is silver in color.  Distinguishing characteristics are outlined below.

General Information

  • Single brake system consisting of notching wheel, 2 pawls, and 2 springs, all stainless steel construction.
  • Continuous braking system holds load in place when listing or lowering, thus preventing free-wheeling of drum when crank handle is released.
  • Stainless steel handle with 3 positions:  transportation, working – 12” long to rotate cable up and down, and short handle 6” long for faster lowering capability.
