A larger diameter in the drum means more traction on the rope and more efficiency in self-tailing. Larger internai body diameter al-lows the use of aluminium and thinner walls resulting in a much lighter part.
Low profile and less weight, reaching 20% less in the #44. Ail winches bigger than the #44 présent a roller bearing around the base resulting in a much more stable body, inde-pendent from the origin of the load. Ail shafts use roller bearings or highly-resistant auto-lubricated synthetic bushing. Self tailing and self-adjusting for a variety of rope diameters.
Off-centre axle means more space for gears with the same base diameter the winch delivers greater mechanical advantage. This is a plus in high-load action and even allows the use of a shorter handle in lighter winds. First gear 15-25% higher allows a longer period of 'pumping' before using the second gear.
