Electric Powered Winches

Electric powered winches are designed with either worm or spur gearing.  Worm gear and shaft sets operate on perpendicular planes.  Gear sets tend to be enclosed within an oil bath. 


They require less torque on input and are ideal for short distances and controlled movement.  Spur gear and shaft sets operate on parallel planes.  Gear sets are usually not enclosed and require lubrication. 


They use more torque on input and are ideal for long distances and quick movement. 


J. Herbert Corporation distributes a variety of worm and spur gear electric powered winches.  Wire rope assemblies sold separately. 


Consult our Customer Service Department to better determine the winch most suited for your application.
