Tirfor Pulling Machine & Winches

Tirfor

he original and best pulling/positioning machine used in mechanical engineering, forestry, construction, mining and many other industries.

The principle may be described as ‘hand-to-hand’, like a sailor pulling on a rope. While one hand pulls the other changes position to pull in turn. The two hands represent the 2 jaws of the TIRFOR. They grip the wire rope without damaging it, and alternately pull it forward during the operation and hold it during reverse operation. The effort is transferred to the jaws by two levers, one for forward operation and the other for reverse operation. The load is held securely at all times.

The Tirfor TU range is essential for heavy loads while the T5 range is a lighter more compact design, perfect for when working at heights.

We offer a full strip-down repair service on all Tirfors providing a cost effective alternative to buying new.

Powered winches for vehicles are also available.

A full repair service is available from our lifting appliance repair centre. Equipment is available for short/long term hire from our hire shop.
