Compact winches in closed cycle operation


Rexroth’s compact winches are characterized by their flexible and straightforward installation, eleminating the need for complicated pipework. These winches are predominantly used in closed circuits. The control of speed, torque and direction of rotation is effected in the form of volume and direction of the flow rate of a variable displacement – usually reversible – hydraulic pump.


  • Only as much pressure as required
  • The briefly higher pressure for start-up is easily built up
  • Generator operation is possible for braking
  • Propulsion unit can either drive or be driven
  • Minimal heat generation
  • No lowering brake valve required
  • Hydraulic or electric actuation
