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. 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. The Harken LokHead Winch weighs 9.30 lbs (4.200 kg) and offers a 40:1 power ratio with 2 gears.
