Old Elkem Winch
« on: May 20, 2013, 02:25:32 PM »
My husband bought this old Elkem Winch this past week-end.  Just wondering if anyone had any information on this. Maybe a guess on its value....
He is planning on sandblasting and repainting, the cable looks to be in good condition. It has 4-5 sliders.
It has a plate on it that says the pulling force is 24520 N any ideas what that is?

Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

That is Newtons, and converts to about 5500 pounds

Where is your general location? A help would be to fill in some of your bio in your profile.

Interesting barn deco arrangement, or is it for daily use?

Thanks for the info. 

We are in NH.  The barn in the photo is from the previous owner.  Not sure about the decorations.  :)

Some indication that the Elkem winch is now (or at sometime was) rebadged as a Norse winch.

Elkem1,welcome to the forum. It's worth whatever he paid for it.News ones are $3000-5000. I would suggest a piece of flat metal on the outside of the legs. That style went out many years ago. One leg will dig it,the other won't and the tractor comes around sideways. Hard in the winter time to get the winch to dig in and stay put.

Here are a couple of links to parts manuals for the Norse winches (Sandvik winches they where named over here). Igland bought them out a few years back.
