We supply a range of winches suitable for most winching operations including manual winch, electric winch and pneumatic winch models. With the range of wire rope cable pullers and Tirfors very popular with both DIY-ers and professionals alike. The range of wire rope winches includes something for every task.
A Cable Puller or Wire Rope Puller is a portable device which can be used for numerous operations such as; lifting, pulling, lowering, tensioning and securing all types of loads.
These winches are very versatile pieces of equipment not just because they are portable but also because they can be used in almost any position, i.e. horizontal, vertical, diagonal, not many pieces of equipment have this capability. Another great benefit of the wire rope pulling machine is that there is no limitations to the length of wire rope that it can pull through, so you could have different lengths of wire rope for different jobs but just one device, it also means that the rope is easily replaceable if it should get damaged.
Wire Rope Winches are also used for lifting but more for pulling and tensioning operations, we have a large range of manual wire rope winches available which can be mounted differently; there are column, floor or base & wall mounting options to choose from, as well as manual, electric and pneumatic powered models.
Our winches are not supplied with the wire rope as standard, though we can supply your choice of wire rope in most lengths, thanks to our own rope workshop.
Cable pullers examined
Our most affordable examples offer capacities ranging from 800kg to 3.2 tonnes, while we also stock branded equivalents from manufacturers such as Tirfor and Yale if you want a few more bells and whistles added to the basic functionality.
As with all of our products, each cable puller in the winch line up will have the full technical specifications outlined on its standalone page, although you can always ask us for additional information and guidance if you are uncertain on any point.
Wire rope winches investigated
Wire rope winches are far more varied in terms of their form and functionality than cable pullers, with the added complexity making for improved convenience while also giving you additional choices to make at the point of purchase.
Manual winches from brands like Pfaff require a bit more elbow grease to use, while representing a good balance of price to performance and also avoiding the need for a separate power source.
Electric winches are efficient and effective in various scenarios, allowing you to safely haul larger loads without breaking a sweat. WLLs of up to 2000kg are available through the products we currently have stocked in this range.
Pneumatic winches are a different breed altogether, taking advantage of the power of air as opposed to an electric motor mechanism to operate. You get a significant slice of pulling force at your disposal when you choose a model from this line up.
