Drum Drives

Pull! It’s what you want your drum drive to do when you hit the lever. Maritime Fab has been a pioneer in gillnet drum drives for years, employing the most simple, robust and low-maintenance designs in our standard drum options. Though we have experience with all common gillnet drum drives, including planetary and gearbox types, our most popular options are direct drive hydraulic motors. These utilize a hydraulic brake, and eliminate the maintenance associated with gear-box type drum drives (imagine having one less place to check and maintain oil!). Most of our drive designs can be retrofitted to existing drums as an upgrade.

Not all fishermen are alike, and not all look for the same features in their drum drive. We have years of practical, hands-on use and customer feedback to help recommend a drive option best suited for your boat’s hydraulic system, and your fishing style. Our designs are backed by years of proven use on the fishing grounds. Let us help you optimize your net pulling capacity!
