What we've been up to lately

One winch fits all...

How about this to reel customers in? We are selling this either as a package with the winch or with the bulldog plate alone.
The plate will fit onto any standard 50mm ball hitch and able to winch all sorts of different items, this will suit many applications and can be operated from any vehicle with a tow bar.

Joe's hedgecutter shaft

Joe James, a local farmer, came to Axel engineering to help him out of a tight spot when his hedge cutter drive shaft had snapped, at the start of hedge cutting season and rendered his trusty unit out of action. Joe called his local spares provider who could not deliver as the part part was no longer in production due to age. With only the broken part as a sample to copy, Joe brought this down to Axel Engineering who made a new shaft within a week ready for the week end work. Happy days for Joe.
