Single Phase Electric Motor Winch



Single 1-Phase Electric Motor Ramp Winch

Powerful and reliable, Sherpa have engineered a winch that runs a single phase, 240V industrial motor, offering greater winching capabilities at your finger tips. Ideal for use as a fixed boat ramp winch or for the trades who need to haul cables, loads or equipment.

  • Sherpa have been been designing and building winches for years. What sets Sherpa apart from others is that they listen to customer requests and feedback and continually look to improve and offer new products to the market. Customers have requested a no fuss, powerful, single phase winch, that can haul boats and pontoons, up ramps, at a realistic price point. This has born the development of the Sherpa AC winch range.

    Note, this winch is not recommended for crane or hoist applications and may not meet the Australian Standard AS 1418 for Cranes, hoists and winches. Similar to a 4x4 winch, this winch is designed for recovering loads such as boats, up ramps and is designed for use outside the fore-mentioned standard.

    This winch is capable of pulling 500kg (1,100lb) as a vertical load and offers fast, user friendly control. When used in conjunction with a ramp trailer on a incline, users are able to haul heavy boats with ease. Each winch is supplied with a wired controller and also a wireless remote control.

    Winches are supplied fitted with steel cable ready to operate. The large drum provides ample cable volume for most applications. Whilst the winch is supplied with steel cable fitted to the drum, the winch is compatible with synthetic rope alternatives and these can be supplied separately for the customer to fit as they wish.

    Why are Sherpa winches different to the competition?

    Tried and Tested - Sherpa don't just base their winch designs on the theoretical calculations. Winches are also tested to destruction on a test bench before undergoing real world testing. What result is a robust winch design with exceptional in-house pre and post sales support.

    Tough & Durable - These winches are suitable for outdoor installations with a IP44 rating on the electrical motor. We do recommend they be installed under cover to maximise their operating life. Winches are fitted with quality seals to keep the elements out.

    Braking Design - This winch uses a electric brake design which automatically applies the brake on loss of power. The brake applies instantly and holds the load. The brake is located inside the electric motor which results in a cool running temperature for the winch drum enabling it to be used with synthetic ropes if required.

    Quality gearboxes - Other brands use cheap sintered steel to make their gears. In the sintering process, heat and pressure is used to cast shapes from powdered steel. Sintered gears are unpredictable and not as strong as heat treated gears cut from quality steel. Sherpa demand the highest quality components for every step of the winch build resulting in a stronger winch that lasts. 

    Electrics - Plug and Play using a common 10 amp, single phase plug. Control your winch via the included pendant control or via the included wireless controller. The momentary push buttons trigger the heavy duty contactors that supply power to the motor. Users can winch in and out via either control method. 

    Powerful- Sherpa use a combination of powerful motors and high reduction planetary gears to offer superior power and performance. Sherpa winches run smooth and quiet meaning they last.  

    Simplicity - Easy to set up and operate, these winches have been designed with simplicity in mind. They are supplied ready to operate out of the box.

    Warranty and Parts - Sherpa offers a 1 Year warranty on the 240V winch range. All spares and consumables are available to maintain the winch.

Phil N
AC Winch

Very well made ac winch. Was able to custom order with 30m of dyneema winch rope. Turnaround time was quick. Much cheaper and heavy duty compared to Pacific hoists and Powerwinch.
