If you ever need to bring down hung-up trees, pull out-of-reach logs, get a vehicle un-stuck, or find yourself in any other similar situation, the PCW5000 winch is for you. This winch is powered by the HONDA 4-stroke GXH-50 cc engine--it is designed for heavy loads! It also has an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, weighing just 16 kg, yet offering a pulling force of 1000 kg.
In addition, you can order optional drums to change the pulling speed of your winch. The standard configuration is the 57 mm drum, which is designed for power and pulls 12 meters per minute. But you can also order separately the 85 mm drum (#PCA-1100) which increases speed to 18 meters per minute.
Use Any Length of Rope!
The PCW5000 portable capstan winch should be used with 1/2" Double Braid Polyester Rope #PCA-1215M. If you need more than 164 ft for a longer pull distance, we do offer 1/2" Double Braid Polyester Rope in Bulk, where you can order up to 600 ft on one spool, giving you a tremendous combination of reach and pulling power. You can also use this rope with pulleys and anchor straps to increase or redirect line pull.
* Rope and accessories sold separately.

Speed (ft / min)
Questions & Answers
On a PCW5000, you can install the optional 85mm drum PCA-1100 (sold separately). You will gain in speed from 40ft/min to 60ft/min but lose in pulling capacity from 2200lb to 1600lb approximately. The biggest drum available is the 108mm installed on a PCH2000 (a different winch). It would theoretically fit, but it has not been tested. It would certainly increase the pulling speed (I’m guessing around 80ft/min) but the pulling capacity would probably be around 1000 lb or less.
If speed is the primary concern, you may consider the PCW5000-HS (High Speed). The gear ratio in this winch is lower making it much faster. In its factory configuration it will pull 770lb at 118ft/min. If you install the smaller optional drum (57mm PCA-1110), you will pull 1100lb at 80ft/min.
The drum itself is mandatory, without the drum there is no friction therefore no pulling. If you are simply looking for a way to capture progress (hold the load in place), we recommend the PCA-1271 or the PCA-1272. If you are pulling on a steep slope, or lifting, and don’t want the load to go down then these self-blocking pulleys should to the job. See this video for more information.
Alternatively, you could look at the PCH1000 or PCH2000 winch models, which include a blue progress capture device that is integrated into the winch itself.
2) The weight of the unit?
3) I assume it runs on petrol (gas) and not diesel...?
4) What is the noise output in decibels?
