Winch Testing

If you’re not sure of the functionality of your winch you can bring you winches to us for testing. We have high quality and robust test equipment that incudes a 250t winch test bed at our site in Alfreton where we can test your winch to the manufacturer’s specifications. All of our winches go through rigorous testing before they go out on hire and there is the option to witness test your equipment before delivery.

Testing Your Winches Brakes

Our 250t SWL Test Bed is used to test not just winches but other pulling/lifting equipment via a 2-metre stroke hydraulic cylinder. The ram can operate either pulling out or pulling in the cable which allows us to test the winches brakes above the pulling capacity of the winch to ensure they work correctly.
