The 40 Foot YoYo Winch
Patterson Manufacturing, the leader in barge rigging for more than 150 years, recently introduced yet another innovation—a version of the revolutionary YoYo® Barge Winch with 40′ of takeup. Like the original 25′ YoYo, the patented YoYo 40 eliminates fouling, springcoil, and uncontrolled spooling while saving 50% more time. Costs and injuries are also vastly reduced with the new YoYo.
With 40′ of adjustable take-up and a brake for safer disconnects (and less sparking), this new YoYo is ideal for tank barges. The unique design creates less stress on your wire rope—we’ve heard reports that the ungrooved drum is extending wire rope life up to 300%! The heavy-duty YoYo is light in weight, because there’s no need for 100′ of line. The design eliminates delicate parts, which means it’s a tough and reliable upgrade to your rigging.
Faster makeups and breakups, less wear and tear, lighter weight, and increased safety add up to a winch that can actually pay for itself in just a short time. We invite you to find out how much you could save by switching to the YoYo—just visit our easy-to-use ROI calculator!
