DLB 800 lb Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch is used on Demco and Dock Shuttle Dock Side Lifts. Dutton-Lainson Brake Winches are ideal for PWC lifts and davits. Brake winches are self-locking, which provides safety because the winch will not “free-spool.” The automatic friction brake provides a constant positive holding action and prevents a runaway load. The brake is fully automatic and the load remains in position.
Many of the same design features as popular D-L trailer winches, but with some important differences. These winches can be used for vertical lifting, whereas trailer winches are for horizontal pulling only. Does not have a ratchet, so they’re always “in gear.” There is no neutral, or free-wheel mode. A friction braking system is built into the winch so that it is always locked in place any time the handle is released.
