Services & Rope Spooling

Rotrex Winches provides a comprehensive service administering everything from scheduled preventative maintenance to call out repair.


Our relationship with our customers doesn’t end when we deliver a winch. We provide ongoing help throughout the hire or post sale, along with a range of service options to suit all organisations. Should you require a maintenance plan, a complete winch overhaul, a remote site breakdown service, equipment testing, installation or commissioning, then Rotrex Winches can help.


Rotrex Winches provides:
  • Winch service and preventative maintenance contracts
  • Winch breakdown fault-finding and on-site repairs
  • Complete overhaul and refurbishment of winches
  • Service spares
  • Cable/umbilical spooling
  • Winch installation and commissioning
  • Winch operator training
  • Winch and hoist testing


Contracts can be tailored to meet your specific needs and can accommodate work to be carried out on site, offshore or at one of our regional workshops.


We provide rope spooling on both hired and purchased winches. Steel or fibre ropes can be purchased directly from Rotrex or our customers can provide the rope and we will gladly fit it to a professional standard.


Using our 250 tonne test bed, Rotrex Winches is able to spool rope onto even the largest winch in the hire fleet while smaller capacity winches can have rope spooled on in one of our workshops.


The rope is spooled onto the winch under the correct back-tension and in specialist cases from a purpose designed brake reeler. Usually, rope-spooling takes place on our test bed after the winch has been tested, just before it is dispatched. This allows us to ship winches with the rope ready-spooled so the winch can be used as soon as it is delivered.
