HARKEN Traction Winch



The Traction Winch provides the user with a lightweight, CE certified, portable winch mounted to a robust adaptor plate. Offered in two (2) sizes, the single-speed 200 model weighs only 4 kg (8 lb) and has a maximum rated load of 1.96 kN. The 2-speed 500 model weighs just 7 kg (15.4 lb). Its maximum rated load of 4.90 kN maximizes operator pulling power by up to 40 times. Multiple mounting options provide versatility when working in challenging or remote environments.

Simple to use and ideal for diverse applications.

The mounting plate is sculpted to remove excess weight and provides multiple attachment points without compromising strength. The pigtail line lead ensures correct alignment and loading of the winch for maximum efficiency.

Winches feature 17-4 PH stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins for strength and durability. The unique drum design maximizes grip on the rope. Packages include a universal mounting plate, Harken 10″ winch handle, and Harken winches 40.2 (500 model) or 20 (200 model).

Fibre Rope 
The winch is designed for use with fiber rope up to 12 mm (1/2″) in diameter, reducing weight and allowing alignment to the load. Smooth surfaces and chafe-free
design are amenable to fiber rope.

For use with multiple attachments depending on the environment and industry—from ratchet straps, M10 bolts, karabiners, to scaffold clamps.

CE certified under EN 13157 (Machinery Directive), please see Specification Tab for load details.
