Trawl Winches

Neumann Equipment Trawl Winch units are designed around the legendary Jaden Auto Lock trawl winches of the 1980’s and 1990’s, and are now fitted with Rexroth reduction hubs, fail safe multi disc auto lock brakes and high efficiency axial piston hydraulic motors.

The drive system combined with our updated design has been fully FEA engineered to withstand the high demands and day to day stresses applied by the Commercial Fishing Industry.

The range is based around the proven series no. 6, 8, 10,12 and 14 design.  The drum capacity and haul in/out speeds meet, and in many cases exceed the previous winch range. The new hydraulic motors fitted to the units also ensure adequate torque is available to achieve the rated line pull regardless of rope layering.

Each trawl winch unit includes:

We offer a standard range of hydraulically driven trawl winches, as shown below. (Note: Electrically driven units are also available)  We can also design and manufacture special units to suit your specific requirements.

The Neumann Equipment range of Commercial Fishing Winches are based on years of experience dealing with, and being directly involved with end users of the equipment.  This gives the Trawler operator confidence his new winch will do the job each and every time for many years. The operator can also be confident he has purchased an Australian made product with efficient after sales service and spare parts when required.

The design and engineering of all our Commercial Fishing products is carried out in house by qualified mechanical engineers using our FEA Computer Analysis. This is then checked by third parties to ensure these products comply with all relevant specifications and meet the applicable Australian Standards.

Our production facility here at Currumbin on the Gold Coast enables us to design, manufacture and test every winch. You can feel confident in Neumann Equipment designed and manufactured products. From the design stage though to the dispatch, our Quality Assurance Systems fully comply with AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008. 

Material used in our standard range of trawl winches is grade 250 carbon steel, but 316 stainless steel is a very popular option.

We truly are a one stop shop when it comes time to purchase or refurbish your next Commercial Fishing Winch equipment.  If you have a requirement to upgrade or fit out your commercial fishing vessel you cannot afford to go past the Neumann Equipment range of Commercial Fishing Winches for the Fishing or Prawning Industry.
