The Harken PowerSeat® petrol powered ascender has revolutionized working at height, providing the worker with the ability to ascend quickly, stay in position longer, and work in comfort. The PowerSeat provides quality, convenience, safety, and is the best solution for completing a task on hand.
Fuel consumption varies with weight and usage, but the four-stroke motor is extremely efficient and only uses a few liters of petrol for a full day’s work at height.
The PowerSeat is simple to use and ideal for a wide range of applications: wind turbines, building exteriors, search and rescue—not only as a powered ascender, but also as a portable winch or hauler.
The portable unit weighs just 14 kg (31 lb), so it’s easy to carry around, yet strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant.
The unit is operated using a fail-safe dead man’s switch to control ascent speed, up to 15 m/min (49.2 ft/min).
The PowerSeat is designed to stay in an upright position, conserving operator energy by eliminating the constant adjustments needed to maintain position.
The Harken PowerSeat is CE certified to the Machinery Directive and independently verified by Bureau Veritas.
The braking system controls descent and provides workers protection against free-falls. The encapsulating jaw cover protects fingers and clothing from catching in the winch.
Stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins provide strength and durability. Sealed gearbox and high-load ball bearings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and do not require lubrication.
The PowerSeat is ideal for a wide range of applications: wind turbines, building exteriors, search and rescue—not only as a powered ascender but also as a portable winch or hauler.
