Why Choose Allison Transmissions for Marine Winching

Did you know that Allison transmissions are an excellent choice for marine winching in the offshore oilfield industry? You can choose from the CRT3531 or CRT3331 transmissions for heavy-duty winching. These transmissions are fully equipped with a three or four-element multiphase torque converter, planetary gearing, and a manual hydraulic control valve to reach three speeds in forward and reverse. 

The CRT3000 and CRT5000 automatic transmissions from Copeland International can be used in hydraulic planetary hoists, upright worm gear winches, planetary recovery winches, and low mount worm gear winches.

Here’s why rebuilt Allison transmissions are an ideal choice for a variety of offshore winching applications. #AllisonTransmissions

With so many options for your winch, it can be difficult to select the best winch for your application. Consider the job you’ll be performing and how much you want to spend. You also want to choose high-quality materials to ensure the longevity of your winch.
