Tirmaster / Tirmaster Manual Winch

The Tirmaster is a lightweight, powerful and easy to use winching and hoisting unit. As the operating lever is pumped, the wire rope passes straight through the Tirmaster, where two jaw blocks inside the unit alternately carry the load as if it were being hauled hand-over-hand. The basic operating principle will not release one set of jaws until the other assumes the load. The verstility and inherent safety of the Tirmaster make these units ideal for numerous pulling and lifting applications.

  • The fastest hand winching system.
  • Jaw release allows quick loading an positioning.
