This PCW5000 Portable Capstan Winch will pull 2200 lbs. (1000 kg) on a single line. It can be taken anywhere and is particularly useful for forestry and industrial applications for pulling heavy loads. The Portable Winch can be tethered to any solid object: a tree, post, rock or even the ball hitch of your vehicle.

The Honda GXH50 cc engine, which powers the winch, has been proven to be one of the most reliable engines on the market. It can be used in intense cold or heat. A 4-stroke gas engine will deliver dependable power for as long as you need to use it.

It is very lightweight: just 16 kg or 35 lbs. It can be taken anywhere, you never know when it might come in handy. A polyester sling makes it extremely portable. The Portable Winch includes a 6' anchoring sling. The pulling distance is only limited by the length of your rope.

The Portable Winch is up to 4 times faster than electric winches - up to 40' / min or 12 m / min. The Honda four stroke engine means there is no oil and gas mixing.

The installed, standard Capstan Drum (PCA-1110) is 2 1/4" in diameter and allows the winch to pull up to 40' / min. Upgrading to the optional 3 3/8" diameter Capstan Drum (PCA-1100) will offer a faster line speed retrieval of 60' / min, however maximum pulling force would be decreased to 1545 lbs. Do not use for lifting, only use for pulling.
