Capstan Hoists
Capstan Hoist  
Optional Rope Lock - At left: Automatically supports load when fall line is released, until operator resumes hoisting.
At right:The release lanyard permits lowering or lifting load with precise control over speed and distance.
Versatile to various applications
Lightweight yet powerful, these portable hoists move many heavyweight tasks and can get into remote or difficult-access sites. Examples: Setting utility poles, pulling wheeled equipment over obstacles, raising transformers (even over fences in back lots), hoisting heavy insulators, stringing and tensioning conductors, pulling cable (indoors and underground), cell tower erection.
Simple technique eases all loads
Graph below right and diagram below show capstan principle in action. Operator effort remains low for typical loads simply by adding wraps on the capstan drum. So little effort is
required, any crew member can run the hoist. Control is so accurate, loads can be moved fractions of an inch.
Note: Always use at least as many wraps of rope on the drum to lower a load as required to lift that load.
Mechanical Ådvantage of Capstan Hoist
WARNING: Do not use a capstan hoist to lift persons or loads over persons.
To avoid getting caught in the rope around the capstan drum, keep hands, other body parts and equipment away from the capstan.
Before attempting to lower a load, be certain the rope is wrapped around the capstan drum at least the same number of times as required to lift the load to prevent uncontrollable lowering.
Mount the capstan hoist securely before attempting to use it to move any load.
The equipment covered in this catalog section should be installed, used and serviced only by competent personnel familiar with and following good work and safety practices. This equipment is for use by such personnel and is not intended as a substitute for adequate training and experience in safe procedures for this type of equipment.
• 1,000-lb. and 3,000-lb. load ratings
• 12V, 115V, 230V, Hydraulic, Gasoline
Powerful new design for tough jobs
Improved design features a multiple-planetary drive/back stop-clutch assembled on the center shaft of a steel gearcase with full-length internal teeth. This design handles more rugged jobs, extends service life and reduces maintenance.

For improved load control, steel capstan drum features nickel-plated rope surface, larger radius at load-line wrap and rope hook/handle. Position fall line so it will not pullover end of drum. If rope comes off end of drum and hook catches it, stop hoist, secure load and correct rope position on drum.
Example: 4 wraps of rope = 1:44 ratio.
That is, 1 lb. pull on Fall Line develops 44 lb. on Load Line.
Therefore, 20 lb. of pull develops 880 lb. of lift.
