The original winch.
Whether it's for pulling trees out of the woods, getting a stuck vehicle out, or any other purpose, the inexhaustible PCW5000 will be there to help you.
Its robust design makes it the Portable Winch benchmark for quality and durability: ingenious products, offering durable power without compromise, anywhere. The Honda GXH50 engine mounted on this winch is an industrial grade engine that will provide performance for several hundred hours. The capstan winch 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, the PCW5000 offers two speed options thanks to its interchangeable capstan drums. You can choose the one that will best suit your task. The 2-1/4'' diameter drum, standard on the winch, delivers all the power with a pulling speed of 40 feet per minute. For more speed, the optional 3-3/8'' drum (PCA-1100) will give you 50% more speed, or 60 feet per minute. A wide range of complementary accessories has been specifically designed to meet your needs.
The PCW5000 develops a remarkable pulling force of 2,200 lb 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 pull up to 11,000 lb!

I have been owned the PCW5000 for two years now and can say I could not be happier with the winch. It starts and runs flawlessly. I also highly recommend the skidding cone as it nearly eliminates hangups when moving logs. The only modification I have made is to use a small stool that the winch sits on when strapped to a tree to keep it from rising/bouncing off the ground or tipping when in-use. Thanks for an awesome product! Brian - State of Michigan.
Thank you so much for your great comment! Did you know that we developed the anchoring system PCA-1269 precisely to keep the winch leveled and balanced at all times? Nevertheless, we are happy that you took the time to write to us!
