The winch can be used to lower a load down a ramp. You just have to make sure the load does not exceed the weight capacity of the winch. You must be sure to have the rope secured around the winch several times and then lower the load slowly.

Can this capstan winch be wired to alternate rotation from clockwise to counterclockwise, as needed?
