Use of a lateral winch

The lateral winch solution is situated on the side of the vehicle. When it is blocked, the operator comes to release the brake of the winch (clutching) to free the rope to uncoil the length wished. Then, we can fasten the hook at a fixed point. To engage the winch, the operator needs to activate the brake to unblock the vehicle in difficulties. This intervention can be done for the vehicle integrating the winch, for another vehicle stuck but also for the handling of heavy loads.
From intervention of assistance to precise manipulation of charges, the STARTER’s side mounting solutions help you in your daily missions. Directly integrated on the lateral body side rail, our winches exit the rope by the front or the back of the vehicle and at the same time protect you in every situation. Going from 8 up to 28 tons, our winches are ready for action.
