What is the difference between a hydraulic capstan and an electric capstan?

A hydraulic capstan is ordinarily used during mooring, whereas an electric capstan is meant for use during berthing. A hydraulic model supports the force of the seamen in hauling ropes, lines, and cables. You can choose from many different models in our selection, like a 5 ton electric driven capstan or a model that is both hydraulic and electric. That way, you will need only one machine for mooring and berthing.
