Used in various applications involving the hoisting or lifting of heavy items, a brake hand winch is most commonly used with a crane or for pulling cars, as well raising or lowering boats. It comes equipped with a positive action brake which can hold the load you are working with, hoisting or otherwise lifting in any specific position as required. It does not, like other similar pieces of equipment, allow for any freewheeling, which can be dangerous.
Therefore, compared to many alternatives, the brake hand winch is a much safer tool to use. All of the components that are important to the mechanics of the winch are protected against rain, dirt and dust contamination. With the options we have on offer at The Ratchet Shop you can benefit from lifting capacity of 800lbs, 1,200lbs or 1,800lbs.
Lightweight and compact, this is still suitably durable and rugged for the applications its most commonly used in. You also get the benefit of a rope to drum fixing clamp when you purchase it.
