Constructed of stainless steel direct drive intemal winch assemblies are available for use on flagpoles with a base diameter of 6′ or larger and can be used with either 1/8″ or 5/32″ stainless steel aircraft cable. The gearless winch utilizes cast bronze intemal brakes which only release when rotational pressure is exerted by the winch handle. The winch is locked in any position simply by removing the handle. Three different sizes are available for use on various flagpole heights. The small unit is generally used on flagpole heights up to 45′, the large is used for units from 50′ to 80′ and extra large is typically used on poles higher than 80′. Mounting holes are on 3 1/2″ centers for use with 5/16″-18NC bolts.
