The Power Ribs

The Power Rib™

Andersen winch drums incorporate the distinctive Power Rib™ which ensures a controlled grip on the line at all times, whether trimming or easing. The highly polished stainless steel surface minimises vertical friction and allows the loaded rope turns to slide easily upward as the drum rotates, without the shuddering and excessive rope wear seen on winches that rely on a rough surface finish for grip.
Stainless steel roller bearings and ball bearings carry the highest drum loads to the centre stem of the winch, minimising efficiency losses due to friction.
The self tailing arm can be rotated through 360 degrees for optimum positioning (40ST and larger). Stainless steel self tailing jaws adjust automatically to suit various rope sizes.
Andersen winches are designed for simple, straightforward installation and maintenance. Servicing is only required every two years or so under normal use.


It’s all about protecting your investment. With ANDERSEN Winches, this protection is guaranteed, as the drum maintains its grip year after year. Keeping wear and tear to a minimum also helps maintain resale value, and our 3-year warranty and instant service in more than 30 countries worldwide amount to a benchmark standard. Low maintenance is a key — and with ANDERSEN Winches, you can take it for granted. Our winches require less maintenance, since all pawls and springs are captive, and the design of the winch allows you to easily strip it down for service and greasing.
