Product Description

Harken Industrial Radial Rescue Access Winch

CE CERTIFIED LIGHTWEIGHT MAN-RIDING WINCH – The Harken Access winch offers a powerful and super-lightweight solution for lifting, lowering, and holding loads in access, rescue, and mobile applications. Using an action, similar to that used in cycling, one person can lift up to 500 kg (1103 lb).

Simple to use and ideal in the most diverse applications.

The 40 Access winch can mount to tripods, vehicle tow hitches, and firmly anchored objects when used in conjunction with an appropriate mounting plate. A single operator can raise and lower loads in a variety of applications: confined space and hatches (tripod mount), wind turbine t-piece davit arms, remote rope access, working at height and rescue (universal mounting plate), and offshore rigging.


  • Weight: 4.1 kg (9 lb)

  • Max Load for Lifting and Pulling: 500 kg (1103 lb)

  • Rope Diameter: 8 – 12 mm (5/16 – 1/2″)

    Maintaining the winch is easy

    Harken winches are designed for minimal maintenance. The winch should be washed with fresh water and periodically serviced. Full details can be found in the product manual. The low-friction composite bearings do not require lubrication.

    * Please note the mounting plate is not supplied with the winch.

    Unlimited line length

    The winch’s self tailing mechanism allows a single person to safely winch an unlimited length of suitable diameter rope.

    Two Handles

    The double-handle configuration gives the operator a balanced stance, providing greater efficiency. Two different power ratios allow quick lifting of lighter loads, and a greater mechanical advantage for heavier loads.


    The unique Radial grip shape maximizes holding power and allows smooth, controlled lowering while helping to prevent overrides.


    The hardcoat-anodized aluminum drum reduces weight while maintaining strength. Stainless steel and bronze in the mechanics of the winch make it strong, durable, and corrosion resistant.


    CE certified to EN13157 (Machinery Directive).
