BHW Brake Hand Winch
The original brake hand winch
The Tiger Brake Winch is a high quality multi-purpose winch used for a wide variety of lifting and hoisting applications. The automatic brake ensures the load remains suspended when the crank is released and avoids unchecked descent of the load; there is no freewheeling making the hand winch extremely safe to operate. All the mechanical components are enclosed for protection against dust, dirt and rain contamination. This equipment has a lifting capacity ranging from 800lbs to 2600lbs. The BHW is compact and lightweight yet rugged and durable.
These units meet and exceed all the requirements within BS EN 13157: 2004+A1:2009.

Noiseless 1200lb model:
This model is equipped with a patented quiet brake design that is virtually silent and fully automatic. Best suited to those locations where quiet is required, such as schools, hospitals and theatres.
Corrosion Protection Option:
This model is protected using our unique formulation giving unprecedented long term reliability and superior corrosion resistance and protection in the most severe conditions. The coating provides excellent friction protection and has been proven to be effective through at least 1000 hours of the ASTM B 117 Salt Spray Test. The coating gives the properties of stainless steel without the cost implications.
Dual Handle Option:
Our BHW range can be modified with a new style pinion shaft that allows the handle to be fitted on either or both sides of the winch; this has been designed for areas with difficult access or situations when the conventional right handed winch handle isn’t suitable.
For BHW winches with a dual handled pinion shaft, the BHW-0800 (800lb) and BHW-1200 (1200lb) models are supplied with two handles, as the fittings for each side are not the same. The BHW-1800 (1800lb) and BHW-2600 (2600lb) models come with one handle that fits on either side. If a handle is required to be fitted on both sides of either the 1800lb or 2600lb models, please ask us for more details. The dual handle pinion shaft for the noiseless version (BHW-1200N) is not generally available from stock but may be available as an option – please contact us if this is your preferred design.
Due to our policy of continual product development, dimensions, weights and specifications may change without prior notice. Please check with your Tiger sales team when ordering.
