Oil rig and recovery winches
Posted on December 15, 2011 by Sam Winer Motors
There has been a lot of activity in the winch market in supplying OEM’s (Original Equipment Manufacturers), and equipment retrofitters with heavy duty worm gear and planetary winches. All of our main brands are moving. The oil rig and recovery winches that are in demand are: The Braden Magnum series winches; the Tulsa Winch Group Rufnek series winches; and the Ramsey Wildcat Winch series; even a few Garwood winches have moved. This recent upswing in demand appears to be base on the activity around the area of the Marcellus and Utica Shale for natural gas extraction. These deposits are found in western Pennsylvania, Western New York and eastern Ohio. The extraction method is call fracking.
