Little Winch + Big Possibilities

We get it. Sometimes you need a deck winch and other times you need to automate curtains or scenery track overhead. Or maybe you only have single phase power in your building or there isn’t enough room in the wings to for all your winches and a rack full of controllers.


Meet the Pushstick Mini. This winch is small, light weight, powerful, and only need 120V input power.

Just the Right Size

Pushstick Mini squeezes a ton of features into a miniscule package. Overall dimensions are only 36″ high x 22″ deep x 11.5″ wide. That’s smaller than the mini fridge you had in your college dorm room.

Zero-Fleet Angle

But don’t let it’s concentrated form factor fool you – this machine packs a punch. Using 3/16″ wire rope, there is room for 85 feet of travel.

And double bonus, this is a zero-fleet machine. That means the wire rope comes out of the winch at the same place as is moves. No need to consider fleet angle or take up valuable backstage floor space.

It is precise and accurate enough to be used with curtain track to automate drapes, heavy LED screens, or scenic flats hung from carriers.

Built In Brains

With an integrated Stagehand motion controller and drive, set up is only a few cables away.


  1. Give it 120V power.

  2. Connect it to your Showstopper 3 Base.

  3. Plug in an ethernet cable to your network switch and Spikemark computer.

  4. Start Moving.


Everything rides onboard to reduce cabling and simplify load-in.

Deck or Traveler Track Winch

This little guys is designed to be versatile so you can cram even more automation backstage.

It can be oriented upright or on its back. It’s compatible with all Creative Conners mule, double up, double down, and turnaround sheaves. Perfect for light to medium weight wagon (up to 1000 lbs.).

It’s narrow width and low weight means Pushstick mini can be flown on truss or battens to power curtain tracks. Becuase the wire-rope terminates onto the drum, positive position feedback is substaintially improved over continous loop pulley machines.
