Custom Engineered Solutions for Improved Performance on Worksites

July 30, 2009

July 23, 2009, WINONA, Minn. – Industrial power winches from Thern continue to make an impact on construction worksites. With a wide range of custom features available to end-users, Thern winches are easily modified to meet and exceed the requirements of construction projects both large and small.

Power winches from Thern provide lifting and pulling power up to 100,000 lbs, with rugged welded steel frame construction to deliver long lasting performance. In addition to standard product features, customers may work with Thern engineers to custom build winches to fit virtually any application. Our modular winch designs make customization quick and trouble-free; available modifications include non-standard drum sizes and configurations, limit switches, cable pressure bars to aid spooling, hydraulic and pneumatic motors, and variable speed controls.

Variable speed controls, available in 230 and 460 volt up to 60 hp, provide end-users with unrivalled winch versatility and load control for delicate operations. When Garney Construction of Kansas City, Missouri needed to repair damaged mountainside penstock pipes at a Colorado hydroelectric plant, they selected a Thern 4HS11M power winch with pre-spooled cable and variable speed controls. Superior controls allowed them to flawlessly position the large sections of pipe, finishing the job ahead of schedule.
