Don't have any first hand knowledge with a drop weight but once your are good at it maybe 10 seconds per pull. String a 16x19 racket and that's about 6 minutes. A crank will take you about 3 seconds per pull so you will have about a 4 minute difference. If you pull twice with the crank the crank will take longer.
