This custom-built “marine-grade” salvage winch system is one of Allied Power Products, Inc’s (APPI) recent solutions for use pulling “spuds” and broken pilings from a barge.
With pulling capacities of up to 12,000 pounds on each winch drum, these winches can reach line speeds in excess of 72 feet per minute when pulling and 314 feet per minute in reverse. In addition, each drum offers up to 360 feet X 1/2″ wire rope storage.
A key started, turbocharged 56 HP diesel engine powers this hydraulic system. The winches on this salvage winch system are driven by a high-efficiency planetary reduction with rapid reverse for the operator to set their spud-pulling rigging quickly. Speed can be metered in both directions with a directional control valve. Special features on this unit include a 100-gallon hydraulic reservoir, 12-volt battery pack, throttle control, high temp/low oil shutdowns, and a fuel gauge.
