A customer called on the Singapore Workshop for this Zollern free fall winch overhaul. Our Workshop was handed a Zollern free fall hoisting winch, together with hydraulic motor and new spare winch drum.

For the job, the customer required an inspection of the winch gearbox and overhaul it if necessary. We would then reassemble the whole unit with the new spare winch drum and complete the project hydraulic motor and function test.
