The Plug-In Winch

The PCT1800 is recommended for situations where a conventional combustion engine is unusable or where noise is an issue. This electric winch designed for lifting
and pulling is ideal for indoor work, such as pulling wire through pipes or hoisting equipment.


As with all other Portable Winch models, the PCT1800 has a capstan drum that maintains the same force throughout the work, over an unlimited length of rope at a
speed of 8.8 metres per minute. Specifically developed for lifting winches, the rope grabbing system is found on the PCT1800 series. Once the rope is inserted into the
grabbing system, the operator activates the winch and initiates the movement simply by pulling horizontally on the rope. At any time, the operator can decide to stop lifting and keep the load in suspension, without any problem. In order to lower a load, the operator must pull the grabbing system cord handle to disengage. Then, the
operator will be able to control the main rope in its lowering movement. If ever the rope was to slip out of the operator's hands, the grabbing system would grip the rope
and prevent the load from collapsing to the ground.


Powered by a 1 ph - 3/4 hp electric motor, the PCT1800 develops a pulling force of 820 kg and offers a lifting capacity of 250 kg in a single line. Of course, a block and tackle system will allow you to increase these capacities!

Edward Kilmartin, Twain Harte, California, USA

« Love my winch. Use it to pull poly docks out of the water. Just great! »

Tim Ruggerio , Hadley, New York, USA

« We have used the winch for a few weeks now and are very impressed with how it is able to pull out the wood for us. It is a great solution for a wood lot with no access for traditional equipment. »

Paul Begin, Victoria Harbour, Ontario, Canada

« Speed of 26’ per minute (8 m/min) was a key consideration, and not having to "reverse" feed the wire back out. »

Kenneth Hixson, Novi, Michigan, USA

« We needed a winch that we could use for any purpose, anytime, anywhere. »

Global One Engineering, Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

« As a union electrician in the San Francisco bay area, I feel I am an expert on using winches. Yours is the best I've run. Your company has met and far exceed my expectations! I'm proud to have a tool flying the great maple leaf of the north! »

John Frey, San Francisco, California, USA

« I've used the winch already several times (for pulling charges) and I'm so pleased with it. Easy to use, smooth motor (one pull and it starts), flexible (any length of cable/rope) and I can use it everywhere. I cannot live without it anymore! »

Jan Wouters, Brussels, Belgium

« I bought the PCW3000 2-1/2 years ago for our remote cottage, knowing that I would need it. This weekend (September 2018) we used it. We had a tree blown down and hung up on other trees. It was still attached to the stump. It was dangerously close to a small outbuilding. The winch allowed me to pull the tree off the others and away from the building easily and from a safe distance. We were then able to drag it out and cut it up. I couldn’t be more pleased! »

Peter Jacobs, Toronto, Canada

« We had a great day getting a moose out of super hard to reach spot. It "only" took us 8 hours... But without the Portable Winch we would have got to the cabin totally wasted. Thanks to your great product! »

Martin Bourque, North Eastern, Canada

Testimonials - David Wheaton

« Here are a few of the logs we have stacked up using our winch. Most are between 50 and 70 feet long and some are as big as 27" on the stump. I’ve never had a product that impressed me that much in my whole life! I am blown away by this winch! At first, I hesitated about buying the skidding cone, but I am glad I did: it’s the best thing ever! Logs can climb up the pile with the cone on. »

David Wheaton, Mapleton, Maine, USA

Testimonials - Pete Paskevich

« I got a PCW5000 a couple of years ago to help retrieve downed oaks and maples (70 - 80 ft) in a heavily forested area (90%) and a ravine. Wow! Getting trees that would have rotted. The winch let's me pull out downed trees without having to clear areas for my tractor. Hasn't missed a beat in performance and reliability... and I am working this thing! »

Pete Paskevich, Stuarts Draft, Virginia, USA
