The Perfect Combination of Speed and Safety

When ratchets or manual winches can no longer get the job done it's time to graduate to electric winches. Electric winches are desirable due to their high line speed (which saves you time and money) and their ability to reduce back injuries that are common in working with manual winches and/or ratchets.

Warning! Our Winches Are Not for Everyone. We design our winches for heavy-duty applications in the marine, mining and other demanding industries. Winch capacities range from 20-90 tons. So if you are looking for a portable AC winch for your boat, truck or other light-duty uses we can't help you. But if you are looking for heavy-duty electric winches you are in the right place.

Our Full Line of Electric Winches

Patterson understands that there are many different applications that call for electirc winches. That is why we design and build many different models of electric winches. Browse through our full line of electric winches below and contact us for more information or to speak with a Patterson representative who can help you determine which model is right for your company.
