MacArtney CORMAC Q stainless steel winches are dependable and versatile systems self-contained in protective frames. The CORMAC Q series includes five different standard winch models (CORMAC Q2, Q3, Q4 and Q5) which are all available in HS (high speed) versions.

Designed and engineered for optimal durability CORMAC Q winches require minimal maintenance. Customers can choose between a broad range of specifications including speed, pull, motor size and cable capacity. The modular outline of the CORMAC Q design ensures that the winches are easily accommodated for a variety of tasks.

CORMAC Q winches come with several intelligent features which allow for accurate and effective equipment handling. A soft-start function makes the winch easy to handle, improves equipment manoeuvrability and protects the motor and gear.

All CORMAC Q winches are fitted with an electrically driven level wind, allowing for significantly improved spooling performance, while making it possible to easily change cable diameter. All CORMAC Q winches are prepared for a Focal model 180 electric/electro-optical slip ring.
