Why Capstans?
Rather than using the hand-over-hand method of retrieving lines, the capstan offers a mechanical advantage that is both faster and safer. The capstan does the heavy lifting with only a small amount of effort. The maximum speed of the line retrieval depends on the rotational speed of the drum. The benefit is that the retrieval speed can be adjusted by decreasing the tension on the retrieved line, maintaining control over a very heavy load with little effort.
This useful device, which has been around since the early days of sailing, is still used today. Recreational fishermen, like commercial fishermen, use these for hauling crab and lobster pots and there are many other uses aboard boats. The few mechanical parts and ease of use have made this a favorite of fisherman worldwide. While chains should NEVER be wrapped around a drum, the majority of lines can be handled on a capstan.

A capstan, typically operated by an easy to use footswitch (R001459), allows the boater to control lines with ease without having additional crew members. Powerwinch has a model to fit your needs. All Powerwinch capstans come with a foot control switch that allows for hands-free operation.

The bad reviews were rigbt September 21, 2017
Reviewer: Chris Hall from Livermore, CA United States  
I read several negative reviews on this capstan and it turns out what I read was correct. Installed the unit and it immediately made an incredible amount of noise and was extremely slow.  Took it apart to find that the main gear was rubbing into the side plate. The motor was held on only buy three bolts without washers or lock washers.  Since I was already stuck with the template being drilled into my boat I modified the motor mount by putting spacers on the back and then using all stainless Hardware on the motor mount the manufacturer uses mild Steel. Hopefully the modifications I made will give me a long service life on the product, it's pretty simple inside. So if you buy this product I would recommend testing it first even taking it apart to verify that it's put together properly inside.
