4.6t winch

Quick and simple to operate

As a market and technology leader Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG brought the first winch to the market in 1983. We draw on decades of experience in the continual refinement of the winch technology. The latest result is the new 4.6+ winch - that has been on the market since 2011 (formerly known as 4.5-t winch).

Winch machines are no longer just used in steep slope situations, but also for shifting large amounts of snow. In light of the increasing number of winters with poor snow and the associated, high costs of producing snow mechanically, winch use is not an insignificant economic argument.

Ropes now last around 20% longer
Thanks to the many innovations in the redesign of the 4.6+ winch, which range from the enlarged capstan head diameter with fewer bending cycles to the constant winch tension with rope position compensation, ropes now last around 20 % longer than before. 

Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG has of course thought about the driver's safety too: sensors and acoustic signals warn of any coiling errors and show the remaining available rope length. The new available rope length monitor means the driver can always see how many metres of rope he still has available. The winch comes with a 1,050-m rope as standard, but a length of 1,450 m can easily be ordered at any time from the Spare Parts department in Laupheim. The longer rope life reduces operating costs, increasing the cost-effectiveness of the vehicles.

Active winch control
The drive and steering tuning has also been improved with the redesign of the 4.6t winch. This now prevents slack rope formation in borderline situations.

Results monitoring included 
The rear camera guarantees a completely clear view and enables instant slope quality judgements to be made: Even when reversing with winch the driver can still see everything, because the colour camera image is automatically superimposed on the display when you reverse the vehicle.
