Columbia Winches & Hoists

Strap Drum Conversions

Winch and Hoist Options

A strap drum option is available for all standard models of Columbia winches and hoists. With hoist capacities to 5,600 lbs. and winch capacities to 11,000 lbs., Columbia strap drum models provide versatile load handling capability while eliminating the inherent disadvantages of wire rope or chain.

In addition to being easier to handle, inspect and install, straps eliminate load rotation problems associated with wire rope and chain. Unlike wire rope, straps wind smoothly without long lead distances to the drum. Straps do not require lubrication nor do they "jagger", chip or spark.

For line pull and line speed performance, refer to the appropriate Columbia winch or hoist technical specification sheet.

When not under tension at all times, a strap eliminates many of the spooling issues associated with wire rope.  In addition, patients benefit from the smooth pulling of a strap because it does not jump from layer to layer.  The synthetic fabric construction of the strap is also much cleaner and…
