Four Great Features of Our Trailer Mounted Winch

At Rotrex Winches, we are proud to be the leading service provider in our field, offering the biggest range of trailer winches in the whole of the UK and Europe, for hire, as well as for sale. Today we’re going to focus on some of the features of our trailer mounted winch hire fleet.

Safe and Secure

When you hire or buy a trailer mounted winch, it is important to know that it will be fit for purpose, and complies with current regulations. When you are unfamiliar with a hire company, we understand this can be a risk. Therefore, you can rest assured when you come to Rotrex Winches we provide full LOLER certification and operation and maintenance manuals with our trailer winches, for every hire.  Our trailer mounted winches range from 1 to 40 tonnes.


Our trailer mounted winch include twin bullwheel, drum, capstan and cable recovery, which are powered by either a diesel or petrol engine.  All our trailer winches powered by either a diesel/petrol engine make use of a hydraulic circuit, which means the winch rope direction, speed and SWL are fully controllable.  Our standard rope length on a winch is between 500 to 600 meters, providing varying lengths to meet with various applications.  The Omac twin capstan winches are frequently requested for all the main utility industries, including the installation of small and large electrical cables, water and gas pipes.  These winches can be directly mounted onto the trailer hitch of your vehicle, either pin or ball.
