AB Chance 1000 lb Capacity Capstan Hoist

AB Chance Capstan Cathead Hoists deliver high torque rope-pulling muscle with constant control. The C3081170 AB Chance Capstan 115 Volt, AC Powered Cathead Hoist features include an improved design and a multiple-planetary drive/backstop-clutch assembled on the center shaft of a steel gear case with full-length internal teeth. This capstan winch design handles more rugged jobs, extends service life, and reduces maintenance. Lightweight yet powerful, these portable hoists move many heavyweight tasks and can get into remote or difficult-access sites. The recommended output is 4,000 watts or higher. For generator options, consider the Generac GP Series 6500E Portable Generator or Generac GP Series 6500 Cosense Portable Generator.

Examples: tower erection, raising antennas, hoisting, setting utility poles, pulling wheeled equipment over obstacles, raising transformers (even over fences in back lots), hoisting heavy insulators, stringing and tensioning conductors, pulling cable (indoors and underground), and cell tower construction. Capstan operator effort remains low for typical loads simply by adding wraps on the capstan drum. So little effort is required, any crew member can run the cathead hoist. Control is so accurate, rope and loads can be moved by fractions of an inch. The unit features a unique rope-retaining device that prevents the rope from leaving the drum.


Four 3/8" mounting bolts are furnished with each unit. The mounting flange provides eight 3/8" tapped holes on 5-5/8" bolt circle.
