Unlimited line length
The winch’s self-tailing mechanisim allows a single person to safely winch an unlimited length of suitable-diameter rope.
The double-handle configuration gives the operator a balanced stance providing greater efficency. Two different power ratios allow quick lifting of lighter loads and a greater mechanical advantage for heavier loads.
The Unique Radial grip maximises holding power and allows smooth, controlled lowering while helping to prevent overrides.
The hardkote anodised aluminium drum reduces weight while maintaining strength. Stainless steel and bronze in the mechanics of the winch make it strong, durable, and corrosion resistant.
