M A R C O O f f e r s Literature On T r a w l i n g / S e i n i n g Winch

Literature is available describing a new two-drum hydraulic winch that was specifically designed for both t r a w l i n g and purse seining operations.

This winch, the MARCO WM- 255 Combination Seiner-Trawler Winch, offers the power, speed, line capacity, and rugged construction for a wide range of seining and trawling applications on mid-size vessels from 27-40 meters in length (90-130 feet), and up to 850 shp.

"The WM255 is p a r t i c u l a r ly well-suited for nations with an expanding fishing industry where trouble-free operation in mid-size multipurpose fishing vessels is important," said Charles R. Hart, MARCO vice president.

The WM255 has two independent hydraulic drives, one for each drum. With both drums operating, this dual drive feature permits independent control of hauling speed and line pull on each drum.

A popular feature is the separate MARCO prepiped control console that provides hydraulic controls for clutch, brake, speed, and direction of each drum. This console can be placed in any convenient location onboard for more effective operator control.

Two hydraulically powered levelwinds can be positioned for port or starboard purse seining or for trawling. The levelwind follower can be manually disengaged from the carriage to allow free-floating with the wire during payout.

The WM255 has two gypsies which are case hardened for use with wire rope.

Cable capacity for each drum on the WM255 is 3,000 meters (1,650 fathoms) of 16mm (%") wire and 2,100 meters (1,150 fathoms) of 19mm ( % " ) wire.
