The winch system has been designed to eliminate the manual pushing and pulling of batteries that can involve loads in excess of the current Health & safety guidelines. The winch system is a modular unit and can incorporate:
These modular units can be mounted on roving (WRO1) or bogie railed systems (WRA1). The winch unit allows both extraction and replacement of batteries into vehicles and roller beds without further equipment and is adjustable to suit different vehicles in the same fleet.
The modular transfer winch system can also be mounted onto a railed bogie, which can be manually pushed or can be powered dependent on the battery weights involved
