Hydraulic Winch Systems

Optional Winch Systems provide power, speed and capacity to effectively handle most anchoring and lifting requirements encountered in the application of Flexifloat spud equipment.

Available hydraulic systems consist of console-controlled winches and a hydraulic pumping unit. Hydraulic pumping units are available with Tier 3 or Tier 4 compliant engines and are capable of operating up to 4 winches. Model U35 winches are designed to be bolted directly to H50 or S50 Spudwells. Model U35 and U37 winches can be attached to S70 Spudwells utilizing the Flexifloat Winch Mount Bracket.
