Pushstick is a workhorse winch designed for the theatre. Fast, quiet, rugged, and simple to setup, this winch makes moving scenery an easy part of your production. Pushstick ships ready to plug into a Stagehand, getting you up and running quickly.
- 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: encoder, brake, and limit switches.
- Powerful – Pushstick comes in either 2hp or 5hp models capable of producing up to 1000lbs of pull which will drag wagons weighing thousands of pounds.
- Fast – Pushstick pulls scenery at 27″/sec, and with a Stagehand AC it can be oversped to move at a brisk 54″/sec.
- Rugged – All-steel construction makes the Pushstick extremely strong. Direct-drive gearing means there are no belts to slip or chains to break. Mount the winch in any orientation to suit your show.
