Harken Industrial LokHead winch: testing with GRIMP 21

GRIMP article

Company: GRIMP 21 – ‘Groupe de Reconnaissance et d’Intervention en Milieu Perilleux’ (Reconnaissance and Intervention in Dangerous Environments Group), is a department that specializes in rope-access rescue.

Location: Dijon France

Harken team member present: Pierre Massé – Harken Industrial, France

Task/project requirements: Rescue casualties using lightweight, easy-to-transport equipment built for multiple applications and for use in a variety of  locations.

Solution: The LokHead winch proved to be the perfect solution. It is used manually or with a drill. It is very fast to setup, and when used manually makes no noise. The winch’s two (2) gears provide the team with the control and power they need to lift heavy weights, or to use on the ground, on a truck, or inside a building. One person can carry the LokHead winch.

Why the Harken LokHead

The team is sent to a wide variety of unknown locations where getting on site and setting up equipment is often a matter of life or death. The versatility and light weight (4.2 kg – 9.3 lb), of the LokHead winch were key reasons for making it this team’s first choice.
