The Rotrex Group, which boasts the largest range of trailer winches in the UK and is one of the leading lifting firms in the whole of Europe, has invested almost a quarter of million pounds in a brand-new state of the art 60 t capacity trailer winch that it believes will secure a new era in its continued growth.
The new winch is called ‘MAGNI’ which is the Norse God of Strength. It has been manufactured in Italy to Rotrex’s exact specifications, including state-of-the-art remote control and Wi-Fi technologies. It is now the largest capacity trailer winch currently available in Europe. It also has large rope storage facilities allowing pulls of up to 2,400 m which is more than double that of their current 40 t winch.
Although the winch will be first used in Norway on a water utilities contract for re-lining pipes, its design makes it versatile so it can be used on many different applications such as long cable pulls and supporting major tunnelling projects.
