ACE Linear Winches

ACE Linear winches are engineered, designed and manufactured for a wide variety of applications requiring high line pulls.  They are suitable for use in land based shore pulls, offshore wire rope deployment and recovery operations, landfall, pipe-pulls, construction, salvage and other associated direct pulling operations.

Our Linear Winches offer a higher line pull-to-weight ratio than conventional styles of winches.  The linear winch is available in two versions, the more compact intermittent version, or the continuous pull version which provides a smooth continuous operation.  

System Advantages:

  • Maintain constant pulling force over full length of pull
  • Grippers lock on the product automatically if power fails
  • Straight line pulling action extends product life
  • Accommodates large diameter product sizes
