I am debating between the FT20250301 and the KX15500101. The winch will be used to arais and lower a tower that supports a Ham radio Antenna. I would like the winch to not allow the tower to free fall while lowering it if the handle is accidentally let go. My question is will the FT20250301 work because it has the two way ratchet pawl. If not then what is the difference between a one way and two way pawl. Also if I go with the KX15500101, is there a way to lock it when raised other than relying on just the friction break and is the friction break load capacity continuous. I would keep the tower raised for 3 days at a time while used. The winch will have to use steel cable which is why I chose those winches. Thank you.
