Very impressed with this winch. Engine starts first pull and will haul 25' lengths of 16" diameter freshly felled aspen. Highly recommend the big yellow skidding cone PCA-1290 and the tree mount system PCA-1269. Makes for a very civilized way to move logs.
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.
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 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!
