Electric Winches

Liftsafe Engineering & Service Group offers electric winches designed to pull heavy loads horizontally over a slightly inclined or level surface. Winches are often categorized with hoists, but where a winch pulls horizontally, a hoist is designed to lift a load vertically over steeper inclines. Based on your facility and equipment applications, an open winch can be an excellent lifting solution. Liftsafe Engineering & Service Group offers industrial electric winches, ideal for towing automobiles and heavy equipment. Our specialists can help you determine the open winch system that best suits your facility and job requirements. We will take environment, task, facility space and equipment transportation needs into consideration when recommending the ideal lifting solution.
