We have a wide variety of air winches for sale or for hire from some of the leading brand names such as Ingersoll Rand, Samiia, JOY, and Atlas Copco.

Coming in a range of capacities from 500kgs to 10 tonnes and with wire rope lengths up to 1,000 metres our trailer winches can be purchased either new or second hand.

We offer:

  • Cable Drum Trailers up to 10 tonnes (manual and powered)

Hydraulic Winches and Power Packs

For hydraulic winches and power packs, we supply both with many beneficial features. The benefits of using a hydraulic power pack in conjunction with a winch system enable constant tension, maximum load limits, variable speed control and remote control to name a few.

Power packs are base mounted and usually supplied within a crash frame. Closed and open loop systems can also be supplied.

Base Mounted Winches

We provide a huge selection of base mounted winches available as diesel, electric or hydraulic types as single, double or triple models. Power packs can also be supplied where necessary. We supply base mounted winches from leading names such as Clark Chapman, Amcon, Smatco, Lucker, and Clyde and Skagit.

Powered and Hand Winches

We supply a wide range of both standard and purpose designed powered or hand winches. With an established expertise in the winch market, we find the right winch for your particular requirements. If a standard product cannot be found to meet your needs we will design and manufacture a bespoke solution.

We provide hand winches that come as wall or base mounted models with capacities ranging from 100kgs to 50 tonnes. We also supply vehicle winches, electric factory winches, hydraulic factory winches, survey and ROV winches and diesel powered construction winches.

Powered and Hand Winches

Mooring Systems

Over the years, we have been unmatched for the hire and sale of 4 / 6 and 8 point mooring systems for crane and excavator barges, offshore supply and survey vessels.

A mooring system ranges from a simple single rope or wire holding a small boat to a buoy, through to an 8 winch system using large wires and anchors to keep a barge or tanker in position. We will work closely with you to recommend the most suitable solution for your requirements.

We will strive to meet all your rigging equipment requirements with access to extensive stocks of both standard and specialised products.
