Product code: N/A Category:


A single capstan underground pulling winch that is suitable for power, telecommunications and fibre optic cable installations. Our powerful single capstan winches have been designed to meet the needs of the multi-utilities contractor by providing a constant pulling force, preventing damage to the rope associated with drum type winches. A high performance diesel engine and hydraulic oil coolers enable the winch to cope with heavy workloads.

Key Features

Engine – High power 16hp diesel, electric start with key switch
Safety Controls – All winching operations either forward or reverse are controlled via a single ‘dead mans handle’ control leaver
Force Indication – Accurate force indication via a fluid damped graduated gauge
Maximum Force Control – The maximum desired pulling force can be set by the operator, between zero to maximum
Rear Anchors – Fully adjustable twin rear reaction struts

Ritelite’s single capstan underground pulling winch has the added feature of being a one man operation. Rope can be pulled out directly from the take-up drum by one man without the winch actually running whereas twin capstan underground pulling winch requires two men, one to operate the winch and the other to pull the rope from the capstans.
