Onshore Manrider Air Winches

Learn More

The current design of Force 5 Man Rider air winches has been extended to meet the requirements of the American National Standard, ANSI/ASME A10.22-1990 for "Rope-Guided and Non-guided Worker's Hoists - Safety Requirements."

Man Rider winches when incorporated into a lifting system as prescribed in the Standard, or by local regulations, are suitable for lifting and lowering people. They are also rated for lifting material without people.

Since this design is to a recognised ANSI/ASME standard, these Man Rider air winches address OSHA requirements where applicable. IR engineering and manufacturing expertise plus third party Type Approval by the American Bureau of Shipping is your assurance of quality, dependability and conformity.
