The YoYo Barge Winch is Faster, Safer, Easier—and Makes Ratchets Obsolete.
Patterson’s YoYo Barge Winch eliminates fouling, springcoil, and controls spooling while saving 50% more time. That means the job will get done 100% faster, with tremendous cost savings. It’s safer, too — and, once you use it, you’ll never want (or need) to see a ratchet again.
It’s the winch you need if you’re serious about your boat — and your business.
A Commitment to Worker Safety
Faced with an aging workforce and the concerns of repetitive motion injuries among its crew, AEP began replacing standard ratchet turnbuckle throughout its fleet of over 3,100 barges. By turning to the safer and more ergonomic YoYo winch, the company is already seeing fewer injuries from a workforce that is raving about the new additions. On pace to install over 12,000 YoYo winches by 2017, AEP has partnered with Patterson to deliver on its commitment to improving worker safety.
Seeing is Believing
Parker Towing was struggling with the delays and unpredictability of standard ratchet turnbuckles on its fleet. For years they searched for a winch to solve their issues. Until seeing the Patterson YoYo winch, they were not prepared to make the jump. Now that they place YoYos on all new barges, Parker Towing enjoys the speed, efficiency and savings that have become the calling card of the YoYo winch.
Time Savings and Fewer Injuries
Bird-nesting and fouling were common annoyances that slowed down operations for Consol Energy. Ratchets were constantly being packed out and laid next to winches that were unusable. For two years, Patterson has been supplying Consol with YoYo winches for all new barges. For two years, Consol has seen fewer delays and a decrease in worker injuries. Coincidence? Probably not, considering that the YoYo is designed to operate up to 50% faster than ratchets while also eliminating dangerous actions.
