When choosing a hydraulic winch, you will have to consider the electric systems that will control the winch. The controls of the hydraulic winch include control panel displays, joysticks, switches and pushbuttons. This can make the system that operates the winch complex and it is important to get one whose wheelhouse controls, remote stations and local winch controls are automated and working as 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 rings and seals. You need to be able to get the spare parts easily as these parts will require to be replaced periodically when they wear out. For MAX Groups’ winches, we usually slot in a packet of several free common spare parts together with your shipment when you purchase from MAX Groups Marine.
