Portable Capstan Winch PCW5000 2200 lb Capacity w/sling

Simpson Capstan Rope WinchPortable Capstan Winch with hooks & anchor sling 6' (1.83 m)

Lightweight, portable, gas-powered winch, with 2200 lb (1000 kg) pulling capacity. If you ever need to bring down hung-up trees, pull out-of-reach logs, get a vehicle un-stuck, or haul a moose out of the bush or water, the Portable WinchTM is for you. Weighing only 35 lb (16 kg), the Portable WinchTM is easily carried and can be anchored to anything using the 6' (1.83 m) long sling provided or the hitch plate for vehicles.

Use the Portable WinchTM with any length of low stretch rope. We offer double-braided polyester rope in lengths of 164' (50 m), 328' (100 m), 492' (150 m) and 656' (200 m). The rope is tied to the object to be moved and wound three times around the capstan drum. When the engine is running, the capstan rotates continuously and the friction created by pulling on the free end of the rope pulls the object. Load will move at a speed from 25 to 40 feet/minute (7.6 to 12 meters/minute), depending on the weight of the load.

The 2200 lb (1000 kg) pulling capacity of the Portable WinchTM compares with the biggest ATV electric winches but offers more advantages:

  • Portability (anchors to any tree or stump)
  • 100% duty cycle (vs. 20% duty cycle for electric winches)
  • Constant pulling power (standard winches are rated for 1st layer pull)
  • Unlimited rope length
  • No kinks, pig tails or barbs on rope
