Agile winch vehicle on Mercedes basis

The FWF 50 FOECK Truck

The FOECK Truck FWF 50 is an agile cable winch vehicle based on the Mercedes Atego with 299 hp with all-wheel drive, wide wheels and 4-wheel steering. The low center of gravity and ideal weight distribution guarantee good off-road capability as well. This makes the FOECKF FWF50 the ideal towing and transport vehicle in this performance class, in rough terrain as well as on public roads at up to 85 km / h.

The patented winch construction Schwenkmatic pulls the rope with a constant force of up to 50 tons.

Its features make the FWF 50 suitable for:

  • Towing the FOECK laying ploughs with constant force

  • Traction support for wheeled and crawler ploughs

  • Drawing in a sewer pipe when crossing water

  • Traction work during pipe rehabilitation

  • Traction support and retrieval of drilling rods during horizontal drilling processes

  • Retrieval and cable winch work of any kind

…and on almost any terrain.
