A quality Canadian product, designed for reliable performance outdoors. Use the Portable Winch with any length of double braided polyester low stretch rope, available to buy from us in any length required.

Quite simply the rope is tied to the object to be moved and wound three or four times around the capstan drum. A guiding pull causes the rope to grip and the engine does the work.

Anchor it to a tree, a stump, a post using the provided 2 m (6’) polyester sling or to the ball hitch of a vehicle with the optional hitch plate winch anchor (PCA-1261).Thanks to the capstan principle, there is no limit to the rope length.

You’ll be able to pull what you want, where you want, when you want. Because unlike conventional winches, it offers a constant pulling power. No cooling period or short duty cycle to worry about, the reliable Honda engine and capstan gearbox provide a winch that can work 100% of the time, and all day long.
