Harken LokHead Winch

Innovative LokHead Winch Kit for Hauling and Rescue Operations

Increase your load manoeuvring capabilities with the Harken LokHead Winch Fire/Rescue Kit. Rated for both materials handling and human suspension, the Lokhead is the ultimate load-lifting and personnel hoisting winch.

With multiple rigging configurations, the LokHead can be used for both fixed or temporary applications in confined space, rescue operations, load moving/hauling, and personnel hoisting. The winch can be mounted onto a frame, such as the Arizona Vortex Multipod or structural steel, or on the ground with the optional TelluMount ground stand.

The Harken LokHead Winch Fire/Rescue Kit meets the certification requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standard on Life Safety Rope and Equipment for Emergency Services NFPA 1983.

The Fire/Rescue Kit includes the LokHead winch with reversible plate, waterproof carrying case, winch handle, tripod adapter with counter plate, control lever, CMC Variable Anchor strap, and two CMC ProSeries® carabiners. The strap and carabiners also meet NFPA standards.

The LokHead winch can be driven manually with the provided winch handle, or for increased efficiency, it can be powered by an appropriate right angle drill using the Power Tool Adaptor (for lifting goods or equipment only – drill bit adaptor not EN13157 compliant for human suspension).

Further features of the Harken LokHead Winch Fire/Rescue Kit include:-

  • Dual ratio gear box: 13:1 mechanical advantage for lighter loads and 40:1 for heavier loads
  • Rated for lifting materials up to 500kg
  • Rated for lifting humans up to 220kg
  • Captive head safety feature prevents accidental release of the rope
