 Forestry winch 85 GF with pulling force of 8,5 t is possible to install on the front or rear. The winch is positioned closer to the tractor and the pulley is fixed lower, which improves and lowers the winch center of gravity. Therefore, there is less chance for the tractor to be lifted. It has a an extra large drum capacity, which allows more wound up wire rope. For easy work there are large storage places (PATENT) on the front of the winch, that the dirt from the wheels of the tractor does not get between the chain and other equipment. In order to facilitate the manipulation and stacking of logs, there is also a hydraulic hinged butt plate.

SMART 3in1

(1) 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. (2) The unwinding device can be turned on and off without delay (the standard model has a 1.5 sec. delay). (3) 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.



To make the wire rope unwinding easier you can choose a winch with an integrated unwinding device. This type of winch also guarantees a constant tension of the wire rope between the unwinding pulley and the 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 damages of the unwinding device, entanglement and wire rope damages.
