Cable winch vehicle for pulling works & pulling support

The FWF 80 FOECK Truck

The FOECK Truck is a flexible cable winch vehicle based on the MAN TGS with 480 hp all-wheel drive, large wheels and large ground clearance. The low centre of gravity and ideal 50:50 weight distribution during working operation due to the front attachment ensure excellent cross-country mobility. This makes the FOECK Truck a proven winch and transport vehicle on difficult terrain and on public roads at up to 85 km/h.

The patented Schwenkmatic winch construction pulls the cable with a constant force of up to 80 tonnes.

Its features make the FWF 80 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.
