When choosing a hydraulic winch, you will have to consider the electrical systems which will control the winch. The controls of the hydraulic winch include control panel displays, joysticks, switches and Hydraulic Winches pushbuttons. This may make the machine that operates the winch complicated and it is important to get one whose wheelhouse controls, remote stations and local winch settings are automated and functioning because they should. You also want to get a hydraulic winch whose parts you can replace easily. The winch will often wear at the fluid and mechanical interfaces as well as o bands and seals. You should be able to get the spare parts quickly as these parts should be replaced periodically when they wear out. For MAX Groups’ winches, we generally slot in a packet of a number of free common extra parts using your shipment when you get from MAX Groups Marine.
