Air winches are simple, rugged, reliable sources of enormous lifting and pulling power for their weight
Air motors cannot burn out; they can be stalled all day without damage, making air winches ideal for tensioning applications, such as holding a barge in place. And when air motors are stalled, they use no air!
Air winches have exceptional load “spotting” ability
Speed control is variable from a slow creep to full speed
Air winches are well-suited for applications in hot, cold, dusty, dirty, explosive and wet conditions. They pose no electric shock hazard, require no special enclosures, and there are no high-pressure hydraulic lines to leak
Air winches have an unlimited duty cycle
Air winches can be easily reeved for increased capacity
Air winches are easy to service, maintain, and repair
