Yale is one of the leading suppliers of electric wire rope winches, and the RPE range has been specifically designed to deliver maximum safety, performance and efficiency. These allow for individual applications in almost any position thanks to its practical and compact tube design, but there are plenty of other benefits.

The internal brake motor allows for a compact outside unit, while the spring pressure brake is incorporated into the motor, so the winch will hold the load even when power fails. It’s also protected from overloading thanks to the fitted adjustable clip, which comes as standard on the 10-6 model. The plain drum rope is supplied as standard with all of the models, and this is secured to the drum in a recess so that the rope can be wound around in several layers without causing any damage.

All RPE models from Yale feature a spur gear transmission with a helical first gear to guarantee a smooth and easy motion, while it’s lubricated with grease so it can be used in any position. The 1000kg model is fitted with a slipping clutch as standard, while there’s also a 42V Low voltage pendant control. There are different drum designs available too, while geared limit switches can also be added to limit the motion of the rope in both directions.

There are various models to choose between and they range from 250 to 1,000 daN, while they’re all equipped with a certificate of conformity, showing the units serial number along with an operating instruction manual. These are ideal to combine with our sheaves and sheave blocks, and whatever model you decide on, you’re always guaranteed long-lasting industrial quality. We also supply RPA pneumatic wire rope winches from Yale, and while they feature the same concept and design as the RPE models, they do come complete with a 100% duty rating, and they’re not liable to contaminants and moisture.

The RPA includes a top quality rotating motor, high starting torque and sensitive control via direct acting valves, while it’s designed for operating pressures between 4-6 bar.
