Lug-All Portable Winch Hoists

Metreel are the UK Distributors for the Lug-All Portable Winch Hoist. These winch hoists feature a strong aluminium frame, self storing aircraft steel wire rope, a reversible safety handle and an interlocking pawl system. The LUG-ALL has been imitated but never surpassed.

The Lug-All winches have become a preferrred brand particularly within the Forestry Industry and used by many leading Arbourists and Colleges. The three main features that suit this application being; The overall weight of the unit, or should we say lack of, predominantly due to its aluminium frame. Secondly, unlike their main competition the Lug-All's cable is stored on its drum eliminating any set-up time. Thirdly, the unique safety handle protects your investment from overload, so any heavy handed employees are safe to use/operate these units!!

Away from Forestry these winches are one of the most portable, useable, reliable, heavy duty winch hoists on the market, used in within Building, Engineering, Telecoms, Aerospace and Mechanical indusries around the UK. The Lug-All Winch has also proved to be a valuable asset for many on-site installations teams, there's even a version specifically developed for the installation of Electricity Lines!
