Powerquick PQ5001

This unit is ex Dept of Defence. The unit operates normally in both directions manually, but there is an issue with the remote control. I considered replacing the remote/receiver system with a generic one but decided against it due to the safety issue.

"Developed and tested under a DARPA contract for the US military, the PowerQuick Ascender is an innovative powered climber that provides powered ascent and powered and manual descent. Whether used as a work access tool or for on-site rescue capability, the PowerQuick Ascender is quick to deploy using standard climbing rope. PowerQuick eliminates climber fatigue and provides for increased worker safety. Unlike climb-assist type systems, when used for tower applications the PowerQuick requires no costly installation and is flexible in that it can be used in any location in which a rope can be rigged.
