12 Volt Winches

For safe and efficient loading of all scale steam engines we have a selection of winches available. All winches are made in the EU and meet all relevant quality and safety standards. These are the winches we use on our own trailers and its fair to say they have a hard life with us and have proven very robust and high quality. All winches come with both wired and wireless remote controls.

To aid your selection we have provided the following suggestion, please note this is not a recommendation and customers should ensure the winch is suitable for their applications. Although an engine may weigh 1500kg, the line pull requirement will be much lower than this, for example our box trailer has a K3000 fitted and will comfortably pull a 6" Burrell Devonshire into the trailer due to the shallow ramp angle. 

K3000 - 1300kg line pull with Steel Rope. 3" and 4" Scale Engines


K45000 - 2000kg line pull with synthetic rope. Large 4" and smaller 6" Scale engines.


K6000 - 2700kg line pull with synthetic rope. Large 6" Scale Engines.
