MacGregor net winches
MacGregor offers the world's largest and most powerful fishing net hauling winches, with a 50-tonne hauling force.
MacGregor net winches are designed to haul-up the fishing net with full power and speed simultaneously. Maximum grip on the net, cork and lead lines is achieved as the net is hauled by three rollers simultaneously. Low-profile installations also provide excellent stability in comparison to other systems.

All MacGregor products can be easily assembled, operated and maintained. They are built to be robust and offer high-quality performance.
