Construction and Mobile

Offering lift capacities from 8.5 to 16 tonnes, the first four of the new winches are designed for medium-sized crawler cranes and rough-terrain cranes. Aziz Aghili, president of Dana Off-Highway Drive and Motion technologies explains,
“In construction applications, safety and performance are always top priorities. To meet these needs, we are engineering the next generation of winches with best-in-class safety, efficiency, and control. Dana’s unique offering includes a fully integrated system that provides end users with the tools necessary to avoid damage to the winch and the crane, and most importantly, protect personnel on the jobsite.”

Smaller winch sizes in the new series will be introduced in the fourth quarter of this year, while larger versions to support lift capacities from 22 to 30 tonnes will be available in 2019. In total, the range will offer 13 different sizes to support lift capacities from 990kg.

Martin Terjesen, head of technical sales for Dana Inc. Service and Assembly Centres UK, comments,
“Years of experience working with our customers at Brevini UK as well as globally have informed the development of the new range. With the four winches launched at Intermat and the new versions launching this year and next, the Evolution Series is a valuable addition to the choice of Brevini winches for our UK customer base.”
