Zero-fleet angle

Deck Winch

Haul scenery around the stage without worrying about fleet angles and chunky backstage equipment. Every aspect has been engineered for the demands of live entertainment. It’s quiet, easy to rig, simple to operate, and safe.


Whether you a sliding a wagon across the deck or need more muscle for your curtain track, Pushstick does the job.


Pushstick’s vertical orientation means less floor space is needed backstage or in the wings. Removable clear lexan windows allow technicians to quickly inspect all internal components while protecting performers and crew from moving parts.

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.


The vertical design gives more internal space to adjust limits, guides, and terminate cables. Because Pushstick’s drum move to ensure the wire rope exits without changes fleet angle, the machine can be positioned upright or on its back in case the winch is installed in a trap room.

Powerful

Pushstick has a 5hp gearmotor capable of producing up to 700 lbs of pull which will drag wagons weighing upwards of 7000 lbs.

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

Fast

Pushstick pulls scenery at 36″/sec, and with a Stagehand Pro or Apprentice it can be oversped to move at a brisk 72″/sec.

36″ per second means a 4’x8′ wagon can traverse a 40 foot stage in less than 20 seconds (wing to wing).

Rugged

Strong lightweight aluminum construction.  Mount the winch in any orientation to suit your show.

Its small foot print lets you pack more automation in less space. You can fit three Pushticks in a 3′ x 3′ area and still have room left over for deck hardware.
