Product Description

If you ever need to pull heavy objects and just don't have the man power to do it, you can depend on the PCW5000 Portable Gas Powered Winch to get the job done.

This transportable pulling system is used to provide assistance for you or a small man crew when pulling or hauling around heavy objects. Its incredible 2200 lb. pulling power will help you pull heavy logs, pull vehicles stuck in the mud, bring down hung-up trees, or haul around heavy animal carcass out of the water.

Make sure you fasten the winch to a solid object, like a tree, solid post, or the hitch of your vehicle using the included 6' Polyester Sling. You will require a Double Braided Polyester Rope for the object you need pulled. Ropes are sold separately and different lengths are available for your pulling needs.

The Portable Winch is powered by a long lasting Honda GXH50 4-stroke gas engine, which provides supreme performance and reliability in heavy-duty applications. Compared to electric winches, this one is up to 4 times faster, providing the user with two speed options. The included capstan drum is 2 1/4" in diameter and allows the winch to pull up to 40' a minute. Upgrading your capstan drum to the optional PCA-1100 (not included), which is a larger 3 3/8" in diameter, increases your pulling speed to 60' a minute.

Weighing approximately 35 lbs., the PCW5000 is very lightweight. This allows you to carry it in locations where heavy machinery cannot reach or is just too awkward to fit in.

Some applications the PCW5000 Portable Winch is used in include industrial, forestry, hunting, vehicle and boating, search and rescue, and more.

  1. Winch Away! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2016

    I bought this winch to use in non-traditional ways. It's very difficult to get winching equipment into remote settings that can pull dozens of tons. This winch can not do that either, BUT, when incorporated with rope pulling on one side of multiple wire rope double snatch block array, one can get up to 8000 lbs of pull from the ropes, and send that through 4 parts of wire rope cable in a double snatch block array, then you could have 16 tons of force at hand. I tested it out on heavy logs and it runs great. It's a major tool, not to be without! Thank you!
