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).

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.

Durability

Stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins provide strength and durability. Sealed gearbox and high-load roller bearings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and do not require lubrication.

Automatic Cut-out

The Compact Gas PowerSeat engine is tuned to stall when the working load is exceeded.

The Harken Industrial Compact Gas PowerSeat® ascenders are lightweight portable winches that are used as mechanical ascenders for working at height and other winching applications. These compact versions maximize the efficiency of the PowerSeat as a hauling device, while maintaining their functionality as powered ascenders. The seats have been removed and the long stem shortened for significant reductions in weight and size. The user is suspended under the compact unit with full control from below. The Gas PowerSeat provides operators with a prolonged usage ascender that accommodates an unlimited length of rope pull. The PowerSeat can be operated with ease and confidence, in situations where engine emissions are not restricted, providing a level of comfort and security that directly increases operator productivity and efficiency.
