Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Hercules Hydraulics will be back at the Scottish Skipper Expo in Aberdeen and visitors to stand 121 will be able to obtain all the information about the company’s comprehensive range of hydraulic equipment specifically designed for the fishing industry.

The single drum, lightweight, heavy-duty Fishing Winch and the Chain Gypsy, launched at the Scottish Skipper Expo in 2019, are proving to be two of the most popular products.

Designed for trawling or beam fishing, the Fishing Winch features an automatic fail-safe brake system and an optional emergency brake release function whilst the capacity of each winch can be specified to suit customer needs.

The Chain Gypsy is designed to simplify the lowering of an anchor chain into a locker and features a devils’ claw and a manual brake with an emergency release. These units can also be specified with a drum to suit any size of anchor chain.

Hercules Hydraulics can provide a total hydraulic service including system design, supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance to support these and other products from their extensive range.

Based in south Devon, close to the fishing port of Brixham, the company has been serving the fishing industry throughout the UK, Europe and around the world for many years and full details of their product range and supporting service can be found at www.herculeshydraulics.co.uk or by calling +44 (0)1803 666623.
