Gearmatic Announces New Hydraulic Hoist —Literature Available

Gearmatic Company, Surrey, B.C., Canada, has announced a new three-speed, hydraulic planetary hoist — the Model 54. Providing bare drum line pulls up to 56,000 pounds (25,800 kg) and line speeds up to 474 feet per minute (144 m/min), Gearmatic believes that its Model 54 is the largest, most powerful hydraulic winch built on a production basis in North America. Like the smaller models produced by Gearmatic, the Model 54 has all planetary reductions, automatic brake, and three-speed mechanism completely enclosed and running in oil.

Reliability is therefore high with virtually no m a i n t e n a n c e required.

The three-speed shift mechanism can be activated under load, and with the cable drum in motion. This means fast gear changes, decreased cycle times, improved productivity. Options available include a range of cable drums, ratios, and hydraulic motors, plus a free-fall capability allowing controlled high-speed lowering.
