I ordered my pwc3000 a week before hunting season, and after realizing I had made a mistake on the shipping address, i found their support very helpful in fixing my error. The winch arrived in time for the season and after an encouraging quality inspection, was promptly tested by dragging an old 14’ waterlogged fishing boat up the hill to the burn pile. Pleased with its performance, we packed it into the vehicle the night before season started, and after several days we got a deer down that needed to be retrieved from 75’ down a steep and rocky hill. We looped the included strap around the nerf bars and ran a rope on down. Needless to say the pwc3000 handled it with aplomb and we were enroute to home with a field-dressed deer that had only been on the ground about 25 minutes! Superb experience all around, looking forward to many years of service from this fine piece of winching equipment.
Have not used yet, still in the box. Thanks.
I am extremely happy with my PCW-3000 portable winch. This is one powerful piece of equipment for its size. The design and quality of the winch and the various accessories is ingenious. It's very easy to use and it gets the job done. I also like Christian's helpful videos for using the winch. I use it primarily for pulling felled trees but have also removed some heavy vines tangled in trees. When I first purchased it, I submitted a question about how to use the winch when there wasn't a tree to anchor it to and received a quick and helpful response from the Portable Winch team. I just ordered some additional accessories because I'm sure I'll find other uses over time that might require additional pulleys and carabiners. The winch and accessories aren't inexpensive but are well worth the money compared to some other products. My only regret is that I didn't purchase one long before I did.
