Schlang & Reichart

Schlang & Reichart can look back on more than 70 years of company history as a traditional company for the construction of geared forestry winches and other forestry products. This means that the company is likely to be the oldest German producer of forestry technology.

Alpine geared cable winches

The series of three-point alpine winches has been designed for semi-professional and forestry workers. The demand for the technology is the same. The differences can only be found in the limited range of accessories, which are perfectly adapted to the private forestry application area. Optimised for the re-use of wood under simple and medium-weight terrain conditions in semi-professional and forestry farms, the three-point forestry winches are also designed for small and medium-sized tractors in terms of dimensions and weight. The cable winch continues to be used in municipal and private forestry enterprises with a high demand for stability and safety (safety deposits).

Geared cable winches

At Interforst 2014 in Munich, a new winch generation was presented to forestry professionals and contractors. These were re-compiled in the configuration and adapted to current requirements in terms of performance, weight optimisation and security aspects. In contrast to the proven technology and robustness, only minor developments have been made in order to remain loyal to the motto “unmatched in overlapping, pulling and braking” in the future. A novelty in this series is the possibility of a constant pulling force from the lower to the upper cable layer.

Mounted winches

If a cable winch is used daily on a commercial basis, the choice of a Schlang & Reichart direct or fixed attachment winch is recommended. The reason for this is the different attachment of the cable winch and the supporting support to the tractor. The product range offers three different mounting options for different application areas and requirements.


Directly mounted winches

Directly to full power Plug-in direct attachment winches also allow great pulling power with compact tractors. This is achieved by a deep mounting onto the tractor. The drive is directly connected to the tipper shaft of the tractor. In addition, the deep installation allows optimum stability and a perfect view of the support from the cabin. Schlang & Reichart Direct attachment winches are attached to the tractor by means of an adapter plate in the towbar and can thus be mounted quickly and easily to various tractor units with different mounting plates. Due to the mounting of the brackets, the tractor remains free from loads when it is being placed, for the most part. The optimised console also allows the cable winch to be installed quickly and easily and without the need for an external lifting device. Only one stand support is required.


Fixing and plugging winches

If a cable winch is used daily on a commercial basis, the choice of a Schlang & Reichart plug or fixed attachment winch is recommended. The reason for this is the different attachment of the cable winch and sprag bearing on the tractor, meaning that the tractor remains largely free of mechanical strain during winching. Schlang & Reichart mounted winches consist of an adaptable modular system and can therefore be easily adapted to the almost all tractor types. The complete reliability and durability of the cable winches is guaranteed by the precision worm gear used in the winch assembly and the cylinder discs. Depending on the requirements of the operator, the cable winches are available with various tractive powers, stacking shield widths and cable capacities.
