The Plug-In Winch
The PCT1800 is recommended for situations where a conventional combustion engine is unusable or where noise is an issue. This electric winch designed for lifting
and pulling is ideal for indoor work, such as pulling wire through pipes or hoisting equipment.
As with all other Portable Winch models, the PCT1800 has a capstan drum that maintains the same force throughout the work, over an unlimited length of rope at a
speed of 8.8 metres per minute. Specifically developed for lifting winches, the rope grabbing system is found on the PCT1800 series. Once the rope is inserted into the
grabbing system, the operator activates the winch and initiates the movement simply by pulling horizontally on the rope. At any time, the operator can decide to stop lifting and keep the load in suspension, without any problem. In order to lower a load, the operator must pull the grabbing system cord handle to disengage. Then, the
operator will be able to control the main rope in its lowering movement. If ever the rope was to slip out of the operator's hands, the grabbing system would grip the rope
and prevent the load from collapsing to the ground.
Powered by a 1 ph - 3/4 hp electric motor, the PCT1800 develops a pulling force of 820 kg and offers a lifting capacity of 250 kg in a single line. Of course, a block and tackle system will allow you to increase these capacities!
