Q: What is the maximum line operating length?
A: There is no maximum line length for use with the Riggers Winch. The pigtail allows the line to be installed without feeding the end of the line through.
Q: Is the Riggers Winch suitable for human suspension?
A: In accordance with Directive 2009/104/EC persons may be lifted only by means of work equipment and accessories provided for that purpose. Without prejudice to Article 5 of Directive 89/391/EC, exceptionally, work equipment which is not specifically designed for the purpose of lifting persons may be used for that purpose,
provided appropriate action has been taken to ensure safety in accordance with national legislation and/or practice providing for appropriate supervision.
Q: Is the kit supplied with the attachment fittings?
A: No. Attachments and fittings are dependent on operational use. The Harken Tech Team can provide advice on the best attachment solution.
Q: Can I service my own Riggers Winch?
A: Yes. However, service and winch maintenance must be in accordance with the Harken service instructions and using Harken-approved replacement parts and consumables.
