Available Types of Hand Winches and Maximum Cable Lengths


I’m looking for a hand winch. My most important requirement is maximum capacity on the spool. I use steel cable 3/16 diameter and would like to get about 75 ft on the spool

We have several types of hand winches, including worm gear brake winches like the 2K-rated # DL11001 from Dutton-Lainson which can accept up to 82-feet of 7/32-inch diameter wire rope. We also offer ratchet-handle winches, brake winches and standard type winches.
