Spec Sheet
User's Guide

The proven reliability of Honda engines, combined with Portable Winch ingenuity, makes the PCW3000 a formidable competitor on the market. The winch can pull up to 700 kg without mechanical advantage. By adding a pulley system, you can go up to five times (5x) the pulling force. That means, with two double pulleys, you could move up to 3,500 kg!


The PCW3000 was designed to meet the demand for an even more portable model than the original winch PCW5000.

Its capstan drum concept allows users to pull loads over an unlimited length of rope, without loss of power, in a simple, effective, and safe way.

In addition, a wide range of accessories has been designed specifically to carry it over long distances such as the Molded Pack Frame and Transport Case!


The PCW3000 capstan winch is nothing short of a tour de force to deliver incredible pulling power, in the smallest format designed by Portable Winch Co.

Coupled with the 360° inclinable GX35 Honda engine, it will be your best companion no matter where your next mission is.

Works as well as you’d hope

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.

One Powerful Piece of Equipment

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.
