The LokHead winch is a proven high-load, low-friction winch that is a perfect choice for rescue operations. The LokHead can be used anywhere a load needs to be lifted or lowered. Rigged to a tripod, it can be used for confined-space rescue operations, for load moving/hauling, and personnel hoisting. Its lightweight design and use of an unlimited length of fiber rope make this self-tailing winch an ideal choice whether used permanently mounted or portable. The ergonomic design reduces fatigue and optimizes operator strength, while safety features such as locking jaws offer complete protection against free fall or accidental release. The winch can be driven manually with the provided handle or with the available compatible power drill (for lifting goods/equipment only). The LokHead winch is available in two different certified kits: The Fire/Rescue Kit, which meets NFPA Standard on Life Safety Rope and Equipment for Emergency Services (NFPA 1983), and the Standard Kit, which is compliant with EN1496 for Human Suspension and certified under EN13157 Machinery Directive for lifting goods and equipment.
