PushstickPushstick is the deck winch re-imagined for the theatre and live events.

The Pushstick includes Zero-Fleet drum technology for quick and easy installation. Fast, quiet, and simple to setup, this winch makes moving scenery an easy part of your production.  Pushstick has a tiny footprint so you can pack more automation into a smaller space.

Key features:

  • Simple – Pre-wired plugs, built-in cable-tensioning, and a spring-loaded cable-keeper allow for quick set-up and take down.  Each winch comes with the accessories you need for reliable motion control: high resolution encoder, brake, and limit switches.
  • Powerful – Pushstick has a 5hp gearmotor capable of producing up to 700 lbs of pull which will drag wagons weighing thousands of pounds.
  • Fast – Pushstick pulls scenery at 36″/sec, and with a Stagehand  Pro AC it can be oversped to move at a brisk 72″/sec.
  • Rugged – Strong lightweight aluminum construction.  Mount the winch in any orientation to suit your show.
