1. Suggested Head Sizing


    Our Heads are Cast Steel and come in several sizes. To achieve optimum load-handling, 6-7 wraps on the capstan head is advised:

    • 9" diameter head - handles seven wraps of 1.25" diameter rope
    • 12" diameter head - handles seven wraps of 1.5" diameter rope
    • 15" diameter head - handles seven wraps of 2" diameter rope

    We suggest using Polyester Double Braided Rope for most applications. More wraps of rope on the head will make it easier for the operator to handle the load. We have determined that 7 wraps on the head will provide the greatest ease in handling the heaviest loads.
