Ingersoll Rand Winch

Ingersoll Rand Winches
Ingersoll Rand is the world’s leader in the industrial winching and hoisting market. They make electric winches, pneumatic winches, hydraulic winches, and natural gas winches. The company can trace its proud history all the way back to 1870 when Simon Ingersoll introduced a rock drill powered by a steam engine and the Ingersoll Rock Drill Company was born. In 1904 Ingersoll Drills were used to excavate the Panama Canal and in 1905 the company merged with the Rand Drill Company to create the corporate entity we still know today. The World Class Winch and High Capacity Hoist Division of the company was founded in Seattle Washington in 1924 where it is still located.

Although this Division offers a standard product line of winches, much of their work is custom in that their standard offerings are modified to suit the needs of individual industrial applications. Whether your job calls for a 200 pound pulling capacity or a 200 ton pulling capacity, Ingersoll Rand has products to meet your needs.

Ingersoll Rand Electric Winches
The unique design of Ingersoll Rand Electric Winches allow them to be used in any position — horizontally mounted, vertically mounted, or even mounted upside down. While they offer an electric worm gear drive series of products as well as a line of direct drive or chain drive winches and car pullers, their latest product introduction into the industry is their fulcrum winch series. These winches, ranging in capacity from 200 lbs to 50,000 lbs, were designed to meet or exceed new American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for operational performance and safety.

Ingersoll Rand Pneumatic Winches
As you would expect, Ingersoll Rand offers the largest variety of air powered winches in the world. While no pneumatic winch can match the 50,000 lb pulling capacity of the top rated electrical winch, they do go as high as 22,000 lbs and have several significant advantages over their electrically powered cousins. For one they can’t burn out and are not subject to operating difficulties due to climactic conditions like excessive heat, cold or dust. They can’t shock you like an electric winch can and they have no fluids to leak as a hydraulic winch can. All in all, they are much easier to maintain, service, and repair. They have a much longer duty cycle as well.

Ingersoll Rand Natural Gas Winches
Ingersoll Rand was the first company in the world to introduce winches powered by natural gas. Pulling capacities range from 1,000 lbs to 10,000 lbs and Ingersoll Rand’s engineers have redesigned components of their standard winch systems to make these winches safe, both from an operating viewpoint and an environmental viewpoint.

Ingersoll Rand Hydraulic Winches
Hydraulic Winches offered by Ingersoll Rand range in pulling capacity from 1,000 lbs to 100,000 lbs. Their older series of hydraulic winches, called the Force 5 series, have been upgraded to incorporate the more technologically advanced design features of their newer Fulcrum series of electric winches.
