For it has been upgraded to allow a Winch System to be fitted and will now be known as the RCW Without compromising the integrity and features users have come to trust, the RCWINCH can be easily attached and detached during use without affecting the working line or the products performance. Not all rigging jobs require the facility of lifting capability! This simple option now allows the operator to use the bollard independently of the winch and should a lifting process be required the winch can be attached within seconds with no tools required. Unlike other Winch Style Bollards the RCWINCH does not support the load during a lowering procedure; the load is supported on the bollard as the winch is attached to the lowering line independently through a friction hitch and winch line.
The RC is a heavy duty single bollard lowering device. Although weighing in excess of 14kg it can easily be mounted by one person by utilizing the top attachment point as a suspension point. Attached to the tree using a specially designed 6m 10t ratchet strap with 75mm waterproof webbing and backed up by securing a choked sling to the base anchor point. Fitted with a large diameter drum this device can be used with working ropes up to 19mm and has a working load limit of up to kg subject to mounting type. The drum has two sets of rope guide bars specially angled at degrees. Supplied with two heavy duty rubber inserts for use when tree protection is required.
Since its launch in the STEIN RC has proven to be one of the most respected, sought after lowering bollards on the market, used and trusted the world over. For it has been upgraded to allow a Winch System to be fitted and will now be known as the RCW Without compromising the integrity and features users have come to trust, the RC WINCH sold separately can be easily attached and detached during use without affecting the working line or the products performance.
