A SELF-TAILING, MAN-RIDING CAPSTAN WINCH WITH THE SECURITY AND SAFETY OF A CAPTIVE HEAD

NEW mounting plate and tripod adapter now available.

ThIs man-riding portable capstan winch is designed for confined space retrieval or for use with davit systems using an unlimited length of fibrous rope. The captive head allows the winch to be used safely, and keeps the rope from accidentally releasing.

Simple to use; diverse applications.
The LokHead can be used anywhere a load needs to be lifted and lowered. Rigged to a tripod, it can be used for confined-space rescue, for load moving/hauling, and man-riding.

Maintenance is easy
Clean and grease winches regularly as described in the product manual.

Lightweight
Weighing just 4.2 kg (9.3 lb), the LokHead winch can be incorporated into tripod design without significantly increasing the overall weight.

Reliable
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.

Ergonomic with new image

Ergonomic
Easy to rig and efficient, the LokHead makes the most of the operator’s strength. The winch offers a 40:1 power ratio with 2 gears: low-load, high line speed; high-load, low line speed.

Versatile
The winch is designed for use with fiber rope 10 –12.7 mm (5/16 –1/2″) in diameter and unlimited line length.

Manual or powered

Manual
The winch can be driven manually with the provided 10″ B10AL winch handle.

Stainless Steel Diamond EN795:2012 Class A Anchor
Stainless Steel Diamond EN795:2012 Class A Anchor

Part No. IN689

TESTED TO EN795.2012 CLASS A and requirements of BS 8610 Draft May 2017.

Uses

The IN689 stainless steel diamond anchorage point is designed to be permanently installed on a structure so that an anchor device, or personal protective equipment can be attached to it, facilitating safe working at height.

The padeye is appropriate for two person use for both fall arrest and rope access with an energy absorber to EN 355. It is large enough to allow articulation, will accommodate karabiners, and is cost effective.

Standard Padeyes

Padeyes are great for mounting pulleys and are also used as attachment points wherever they are required.

Harken offers a range of stainless steel padeyes. The diamond-shaped padeyes, 668 and 669, are 316 stainless and their shape allows them to be mounted very close together.

627, 629 and 648 padeyes are 17-4PH stainless.

For maximum strength, always align the padeye bails to the load.

LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT, LOW-FRICTION, CERTIFIED

Harken purchase systems increase operation strength, providing low-friction pulling power in a wide variety of pulling/lifting operations. Systems can be used on their own, or easily combined with an existing system for tensioning, deviation, or casualty transfer. Purchase systems come fully rigged with tamper-evident termination.

Simple to use in load-assist applications
Harken purchase systems are used by emergency services and rescue personnel to help transfer loads and individuals from working ropes to alternates. The systems are also used to transfer loads in deviation, and to take the load when lifting inanimate objects.

Maintenance is easy
To clean, simply flush pulleys with fresh water. As with all equipment, check regularly to make sure it is in good working order. Check rope for chafe and wear. Make sure tamper-evident seals are intact.

LA low friction sheave

Low-friction sheave
Delrin® ball bearings provide low-friction, easy rope release under load. Ball bearings are UV-stabilized for maximum protection.

Gas PowerSeat® Ascender
Gas PowerSeat® Ascender

Part No. PWRS-G

The Harken Gas PowerSeat® 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 motor is extremely efficient and only uses a few liters of unleaded gas with four-stroke mix 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.

PS Speed Control

Speed Control
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).

PS Break

Brake
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.

 

PS Ergonomical Design

Ergonomical design 
The PowerSeat is designed to stay in an upright position, conserving operator energy by eliminating the constant adjustments needed to maintain position.

PS Durability

 

Durability
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.

PS CE

Certification
The Harken PowerSeat is CE certified to the Machinery Directive and independently verified by Bureau Veritas.

 

Applications

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.
