Suspended Access designs unique Portable Electric Winch System

Northern Strands Suspended Access Division has designed a unique Portable Electric Winch System for material handling. Why did we design a Portable Electric Winch System?  To offer an alternative to Air Winches.  Our Portable Electric Winch System was designed with portability and ease of use in mind.  

Who can benefit from the use of this unique winch?   Ironworkers, sheeters, insulators, industrial mechanical contractors, plant maintenance workers, and anyone that has a need for temporary hoisting solutions in a somewhat confined space.

Features include:

  • 1st Layer rating: 1,100 LBS W.L.L
  • Mid drum rating: 700 LBS W.L.L
  • Full drum rating: 500 LBS W.L.L
  • Variable speed.
  • Accurate load weight readout.
  • Anti-two-block.
  • Positive controls.
  • Controlled descent.
  • Counterweighted system, no need to anchor the unit.
  • No need for a compressor.
  • Overload protection.
  • Ease of use.
  • Long pendant control keeps the operator away from the suspended load.

Our Portable Electric Winches are available to rent today!
