Portable Winch Gas Powered Capstan Winch - 1545 lbs Max Pull - #PCW3000
This unit was specifically designed with hunters in mind! The Portable Winch Co. wanted to provide the most efficient and lightweight winch on the market so that hunters would be able to retrieve their game in any terrain conditions. And they succeeded!
This winch is powered by Honda’s 4-stroke GX-35 cc engine. In addition to being extremely popular with hunters looking for a lightweight, compact tool, this model is also appreciated by occasional loggers. Weighing only 9.5 kg, it offers 700 kg (1525 lbs) of pulling power in a single line pull. This unit is both efficient and easy to carry--you’ll be equipped to retrieve your game, no matter the conditions.
The PCW3000 portable capstan winch should be used with 3/8" Double Braid Polyester Rope #PCA-1205M. If you need more than 164 ft for a longer pull distance, we do offer 3/8" 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.
So Easy to Use!
The rope is tied to the object to be moved and wound 3-4 times around the capstan drum. When the engine is running, the capstan drum rotates continuously and the friction created by pulling on the free end of the rope pulls the object--this is referred to as back tension. You must apply back tension for the winch to work.
Portable Winch Co. also offers a range of transport accessories in order to facilitate your movements, even over long distances! Whether you use the Molded Transport Case #PCA-0102, which can be attached to the Backpack Frame #PCA-0104, or other great accessories like pulleys, anchor straps or hitch plates, your outing in the woods will be enhanced. Even better, use this winch with the popular Deluxe Forester Kit #PCA-1006 to get all of the accessories you need for skidding logs in one well-priced package. This winch, paired with the right gear, will be your ally for many years to come!
