Trust the leader in lifting magnet technology to lead the way to optimized magnet power for end-to-end productivity, dependability and safety in heavy-duty scrap handling and mobile crane applications.

Winkle brings together the best in generator components with advanced engineering for today’s most compact and efficient magnet generator systems.

Engineered For Long-Life Dependability:
Trusted reliability: OptiGen gensets are built on the industry’s leading brand name components.

Less heat: controller maintains 700 V maximum return voltage, up to 60% less than some gensets, for longer magnet life and reduced rebuild costs.

Direct coupling: direct-drive coupling eliminates misalignment between engine generator for a compact fit with less wear.

Anti-vibration: large anti-vibration mounts and thick mounting plates reduce warpage and minimize arcing in the controller.

Engineered For All-Day Productivity
High efficiency engines and 100% duty-cycle generators are spec’d for extended daily and weekend service.

  • municipal, demolition, and rugged scrap handling applications
  • built-in fuel tank sized to run around-the-clock
  • engine block heater for quick cold-weather starts

Engineered For Safer, Convenient Operation
OptiGen systems allow improved visibility from the cab with enhanced convenience and safety features for operators.

  • Low 4 ft. high profile provides an unobstructed view
  • Compact design allows more choices for convenient mounting
  • Available with in-cab monitoring and in-cab starting
  • Low-throttle magnet lock-out helps operators avoid draining the battery or engaging the magnet inadvertently
  • Prevents dropped loads; electric fuel pump prevents stalling on uneven terrain
