Externally mounted, hydraulically powered rescue hoist Model 42315 uses the Collins Aerospace proprietary translating drum cable management system. The hoist design also incorporates a Weston style load brake for added safety. Cable lubrication extends cable life and helps arrest corrosion.

Design Features

  • Hour meter logs total hoisting time
  • Emergency cable cut
  • Redundant limit and decel switches
  • Intercom switch on pendant
  • Priority hoist controls for pilot

Translating drum technology

  • Fixed cable payout point
  • Reduces the onset of load spin
  • Allows for the use of larger diameter rollers at the cable payout point for improved fleet angle capability and cable life
  • Tighter fairing fits for reduced FOD & environmental ingress into the hoist system
  • A consistent cable location relative to the aircraft, winch operator and doorway
  • Significantly reduced loads on the level-wind


  • Sikorsky HH-60G/J, MH-60R/S and SH-60
