Braden Winch Marketing New Planetary Hoist

—Literature Available Braden Winch Company of Broken Arrow, Okla., a Division of PACCAR, is now manufacturing and marketing a 12,000-pound planetary hoist with three-motor and four-drum options, called the PD12B.

The hoist uses the patented Braden HV80 brake valve, which is essentially a sophisticated counterbalance valve that has proven itself by providing the smoothest operation available. The internal, static loadholding brake is spring-applied and hydraulically released. If the engine dies or a hydraulic line breaks, the load is held firmly in place until power is restored.

Features of the PD12 series hoists include roller bearings under the planetary gears, resulting in high efficiency and an increase in duty cycle. The rope pocket design permits smooth spooling and will hold 7/

Drain and fill plugs are located on the support end of the hoist to improve accessibility. The motor can be either internally or externally drained for long motor seal life without affecting the brake operation and mounting.
