The PMX Petrol Power Ascender

PMX is the new enhanced generation of petrol engine Power Ascenders from ActSafe.

The petrol-powered PMX ascender has its uniqueness in the combination of strength and the small portable size. Weighing only 13 kg and with at least 700 metres of rope-travelling on one fuel tank, this is the tool that will take you through the hard, dirty jobs where you need to be able to rely on your equipment. 

The features of this new PMX Power Ascender include an enclosed rope grab system, and a left-hand-operated throttle. The descent lever is easy to operate for going down the rope, and the whole sturdiness of this Power Ascender makes it perfect for a never-ending list of lifting operations.


Can be used with many 11 mm static/semi-static EN1891A ropes. Ropes shall be pre-soaked for lifting people.
