Jockey winches are portable manual lifting and pulling hoists with Infinite HOL (Rope length)

The JOCKEY machine is a hand-operated lifting and pulling machine. It is versatile, portable and multipurpose, not only for pulling and lifting but also for lowering, tensioning and guying.

The originality of the TIRFOR machine is the principle of operation directly on the wire rope which passes  through the mechanism rather than being reeled onto a drum of a hoist or conventional winch. The pull is applied by means of two pairs of self energised jaws which exert a grip on the wire rope in proportion to the load being lifted or pulled. A telescopic operating lever fitted to either the forward or the reverse lever  transmits the effort to the jaw mechanism to give forward or reverse movement of the wire rope.

Ultira-lightweight and robust, easy to operate and maintain, can be used in numerous applications.

Jockey™ winches are portable manual hoists with maxiflex wire rope. They are light-weight and easy to carry. The winch can be installed quickly and is therefore suitable for occasional use; it is operated by a lever. Option: the load capacity of the device can be increased with sheave blocks.
