  • True vertical lift (zero hook drift throughout the hook stroke)
  • Dual speed hoist
  • 48 volt push button pendant control
  • Torque limiting slipping clutch
  • Compact side hook approaches to optimise hook coverage of the working area
  • Overload protection by torque limiting clutch in the hoist mechanism
  • CNC machined chain sprocket
  • Hardened and heat treated gears
  • DIN standard hook with spring loaded safety catch
  • High tensile zinc coated lifting chain
  • External removable fan cooled hoist motor with cooling fins

  • Upper and lower hooks with reinforced safety latches
  • Load limiter available as an option
  • Dedicated to sustained professional applications
  • Multi-pocket load chain sprocket: more efficient lifting operations
  • Zinc plated hand chain
  • “Tunnel” chain guide for ideal chain positioning, guaranteeing drive continuity
  • Galvanised fittings, epoxy paint for much greater resistance to aggressive environments
  • Forged steel hooks with 360° rotation and overload opening indicators
  • Compact with a light weight simplifies use and transport
  • Available with Corolim® chain or black chain
  • Standard chain length: 3m (other lengths on request)
  • Compliance with Machine Directive 2006/42/CE

Lug-all Portable Winches & Hoists

A portable winch-hoist with 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.

Innovative Design

  • Aluminium alloy frame
  • Exclusive drum anchor – swaged ball shank terminal locks wire rope securely in drum and allows for full extension of the steel wire rope. (Other brands use two set screws and 2-3 wraps of wire rope to hold the wire rope onto the drum)
  • Wire rope end has hydraulically crimped copper sleeve
  • Proprietary reversible handle – always a downward pull, switches positions in seconds
  • Self storing aircraft wire rope. No chains are hanging in the way or dragging on the ground. Much lighter than chain pullers
  • Optional marine grade models – developed specifically for marine or other corrosive conditions, have anodised castings, stainless steel wire ropes and cadmium plated steel shafts
  • Drop forged steel hooks

Reliable Opteration

  • Factory tested to 50% overload of rated capacity
  • Reversible handle is designed to bend on severe overload to protect the user and the hoist. Replace the handle NOT the Winch-Hoist
  • 6000 Model – the shear pin design on two position telescoping handle warns of overload
  • Quick release – will not function when the wire rope is under load
  • The handle can be removed to prevent tampering with the hoist or load
  • One year guarantee against defects in workmanship and/or materials

The Lug-All winches have become a preferred brand, particularly within the Forestry Industry and are used by many leading Arborists and Colleges. The three main features that suit this application are; 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 Building, Engineering, Telecoms, Aerospace and Mechanical industries around the UK. The Lug-All Winch has also proved to be a valuable asset for many on-site installation teams, there’s even a version specifically developed for the installation of Electricity Lines!
