A new range of High Performance Lifting (HPL) winches for Potain tower cranes feature lifting speeds up to twice that of the older 75 LVF winch. At the other end of the scale, control is improved with creep speeds that are two times slower than the 75 LVF.

The models in the new winch range are: the 75 HPL 25, the 75 HPL 30, the 75 HPL 35 and the 75 HPL 40. Rope capacities range from 539 meters to 956 meters, and they can be used with a wide range of Potain cranes, including the latest topless and luffing jib models from the company.

Compatible models include: the MDT 349 L16, the MDT 389 L16, the MR 295 H16, the MR 225A, the MDT 249 J12 and the MDT 269 J10.
