Professional geared cable winches

After a successful 25 years on the market, the Pfanzelt Pro winch series has been redesigned with technology. Ease of use, ergonomic design and safety for the user and the vehicle were decisive factors in the further development of the successful series. 

During the redesign, great emphasis was placed on adopting features that have proven their worth over many decades. Further developments concerned, for example, the optimisation of the hydraulic circuit for even shorter reaction times and more technical options. The new outer form offers more protection for the tractor and greater working comfort. Thus, in addition to ergonomically arranged stowage compartments, accessibility for maintenance work has also been improved.

More details on the Prodi geared cable winches

Winch unit

If the cable drum is aligned with the pulling direction, this enables easy cable payout and ensures low cable wear, as the cable is not fed out or wound in via several rollers in different directions. According to KWF tests, Pfanzelt cable winches have the lowest power requirement of any winch for paying out the cable. Moreover, the cable winch is mounted in an especially favourable position on the tractor in relation to centre of gravity.

The use of a cable drum with a large core diameter ensures very low tractive force loss from the top to bottom cable layer. According to independent tests by the KWF, the Pfanzelt cable winch has a maximum tractive force loss of 21% with a standard cable length.

The very low cable infeed height enables simple and comfortable operation without deflection roller.

Drive

The cable winch is driven via the PTO shaft with speeds of 540, 750 or 1000 rpm. From the Cardan shaft, the drive is transmitted via a bevel gear to the precision worm gear immersed in an oil bath. This ensures very quiet running and permanent operating safety.

Multi-disc sintered plate sets are used for exact control of the braking and clutch operations and secure crossover. The complete system is protected by internal mounting.

The PHS system of the Pfanzelt Pro geared winches creates permanent hydraulic pressure in the system and thus short reaction times even after several switching operations.

PPS Controller

With the Pfanzelt PPS precision controller, which is unique on the market, the cable winch can be adapted to the respective forwarding situation. The operator can rapidly and easily adjust the crossover of the clutch and brake by preselection. This offers maximum operating comfort and the highest degree of working safety.

Cable distribution with cable infeed brake

The cable is always kept taut when drawn in, even if the trunk starts to slip or the cable is loose: all made possible by the Pfanzelt cable infeed brake. A cylinder presses the cable when it is drawn in with a brake roller against the brake block. The cylinder force is selected so that the cable can only be pressed against the brake block when it is in an unloaded state. When the cable is paid out, the brake opens completely.

Position 1<br/> The cable infeed brake is actuated by activating the Pull function

Position 2<br/> As soon as the cable is drawn in under load, the cable infeed brake opens

Position 3<br/> During cable payout, the cable infeed brake opens completely and thus does not obstruct cable payout.

Cable payout

The Pfanzelt cable payout has been developed to increase operating comfort and to improve the cable winding quality on the cable drum. The cable payout device built into the pivoting arm of the cable distributor has a hydraulic drive and is electrically actuated. As soon as the cable payout is activated, the cable is pressed firmly against the cable roll via several flexibly mounted pressure rollers over a large radius. Due to the special structure and correspondingly large contact area of the pressure rollers on the cable, the operability of the device is not impaired by soiling or cable damage.

Stacking shield

Pfanzelt geared cable winches are equipped with an especially robust shield made of high strength fine grained steel to create a torsion-resistant box. The resulting wedge form is able to reliably absorb even lateral pulling forces, giving many years of robust service. Laterally actuated parking supports ensure that the cable winch can be conveniently attached or removed the tractor and help prevent accidents.

Wireless control

In addition to the standard functions (pulling, short release, release, continuous release, infinite engine gas adjustment) the modern wireless control system that comes as standard can also if required support engine start/stop and an emergency call circuit.

Offset gearbox

Pfanzelt cable winches with a wide cable drum can be equipped with an offset gearbox to provide a centred drive (standard equipment in some models). This is also recommended for use with tractors with an non-centred PTO stub. An offset gearbox with direction of rotation reversal can also be provided for front-and rear-mounting.<br/>

Stowage space

Specially designed holders for chainsaws and fuel canisters as well as, in some models, two additional storage bins with lids provide lots of storage capacity for forestry work.

Active operator protection (standard)

TUTUM Pro Crush Protection prevents hand crushing and injuries caused by rope damage. This protective mechanism is only available as standard from Pfanzelt.

Constant traction (models P163K, P173K and 273K)

The Pfanzelt winch models P163K, P173K and P273K have a constant pulling force. This means that the winch always operates with the same force when pulling in. The usual loss of tractive force is
excluded.
This offers a higher safety level and greater ease of use, as thinner forest cables can be used, for example. The operator can thus always work with the maximum pulling force.

Auxiliary cable winch

The new auxiliary cable winch for Pfanzelt Profi geared cable winches makes off-road cable winch operation easier. In this process, operation is both simple and effective. The system is ergonomically operated by radio control.

  • Tractive force: 300 kg
  • Freewheeling for fast cable payout
  • Automatic unwinding when retracting the forwarding cable
  • Cable length: 240 m, plastic cable
  • Includes snap hook, deflection pulley, tree belt, remote control

 

Quick to set up, immediately ready for operation:

  • connect the end of the very lightweight auxiliary cable to the traction cable.
  • Activate freewheeling to easily extend the auxiliary cable
  • Attach the deflection pulley at the end of the cable route to a tree.
  • Attach the auxiliary cable.
