The Harken PowerSeat™ Gas has revolutionized working at height, providing the worker with the ability to ascend quickly, stay in position longer, and work in comfort. The PowerSeat™ provides quality, convenience, safety and the best solution for completing a task on hand.
Fuel consumption varies with weight and usage but the petrol motor is extremely efficient and only uses a few litres of unleaded petrol with four-stroke mix for a full day’s work at height.
Simple to use and ideal in the most diverse applications. The PowerSeat ™ is ideal for a wide range of applications such as a wind turbines, building exteriors, search and rescue scenarios – not only as a powered ascender but also as a portable winch or hauler.
The portable unit weighs just 14 kg so it’s easy to carry around, yet strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant.
|Max Working Load||273 kg (601.9 lb)|
|Max Ascent Speed||15 m/min (49.2 ft/min)|
|Weight||14 kg (30.9 lb)|
The PowerSeat™ is designed to stay in an upright position, eliminating wasted energy maintaining an upright position.
The brake system offers complete security against free fall. The encapsulating jaw cover protects against snagging fingers and clothing in the winch.
The unit is operated using a fail-safe dead man’s switch to control ascent speed, up to 15 m/min(49.2 ft/min).
Stainless steel load-carrying gears and pins provide strength and durability. Sealed gearbox and high-load ball bearings reduce friction under load, are corrosion resistant, and do not require lubrication.
The Harken PowerSeat is CE certified and complies with the essential requirements defined by the 2006/42/CE Machinery Directive (and independently verified by Bureau Veritas).
The PowerSeat™ is ideal for a wide range of applications such as wind turbines, building exteriors, search and rescue scenarios — not only as a powered ascender but also as a portable winch or hauler.
