The last 5 wraps of cable must be left on the drum to assist the cable clamp in holding the load.

The Hercules 50K winch was developed around the concept of “superior cable management”; during the development three key components were refined and work together to produce a product that truly provides superior cable management.
•   Fabricated Drum with Straight Flanges (Part of the Cable Management System)
        •   Straight flanges, reduces cable climbing
•   Dual Drag Brakes (Part of the Cable Management System)
        •   Adjustable tension for operator preference
•   Roller Tensioner (Part of the Cable Management System)
        •   Constant Spring Force
•   Operator Adjustable Pneumatic (air) Force
