Introducing the Thern® 4BP Electric Power Winch: From Special to Standard
Thern is launching a new product that will be an integral member of the heavy-duty electric power winch family. Introducing the 4BP series electric winch. Like the rest of Thern’s heavy-duty electric winches, this winch is built to handle long travel distances, accommodate faster line speeds, and give the operator ultimate control.
The new series of 4BP electric power winches consists of three different lifting or pulling capacity options. This includes 30,000, 40,000, and 50,000 pounds. Whether you are lifting or pulling, the winch is fully customizable, just like any other products Thern has to offer.
The engineers at Thern realized a demand for this winch when they noticed an increase in job applications that were lifting or pulling loads at a 30,000- to 50,000-pound capacity. Before the 4BP series, these applications were handled by a Thern heavy-duty winch with a rated capacity of up to 100,000 pounds, such as the 4HPB, or by a custom engineered winch. Because this request was common, Thern developed the custom winch perfect for these situations into a standard offering. That brought us to the introduction of the 4BP series heavy-duty electric power winches.
Therefore, by offering the 4BP series as a standard product, Thern can help more customers handle their heavy lifting, pulling, or positioning with a winch ideally suited for their application.
