High Speed Capstan Hoist

Part No. 11-281

Wurtec’s fully self-contained High-Speed Capstan Hoist is what every high- and higher-rise job needs to hoist and install rails faster and more efficiently. Compared to standard capstan hoists, this unit is up to 5 times faster.

Wurtec recommends using this tool with a block and tackle (Snatch Block) picked from the new Wurtec 3 Beam System (PN 11-223 or 11-224) to approximately double installation efficiency using both ends of the synthetic hoisting rope -- running one end of rope down (for another rail) while the other end is coming up.

Included with every order of the High-Speed Capstan is a Wheel Kit (part no. 11-282) for easy transport.
