Take serious pulling power anywhere you go! The Portable Winch is available in multiple sizes, to bring the perfect combination of size and pulling power wherever you need it. The gas-powered portable winch will work with any low-stretch double-braid (we recommend Samson Stable Braid 1/2”) on the capstan drum. Hook your rope to your load, wind it three or four times around the capstan drum, and start the engine - the Portable Winch engages and moves your load with real power.
Check out the different Portable Winches below. Expand your working options with accessories and cases(sold separately.)
The Original Portable Winch is perfect for skidding long, pulling down hung-up trees, vehicle retrieval, and more. Powered by Honda's 4-stroke GXH-50cc engine, and weighing only 35 lb, it provides 2,200 lb of pulling power. In addition, you benefit from two speed options with interchangeable capstan drums. If you go for POWER, use the included 57 mm drum pulling at 39 feet per minute. If your application requires more SPEED, select the optional 85 mm drum* pulling at 59 feet per minute!
The Portable Winch can be used with any length of 1/2” low-stretch double-braid rope (we recommend Samson Stable Braid 1/2”.) Tie or hook the rope to the object to be moved and wound it three (or four) times around the capstan drum. Turn the engine on, and the friction created by pulling on the rope pulls the object towards the winch.
*Note: One (1) anchor polyester sling 60 mm x 2 m is always included with every winch. Accessories and optional 85mm drum are available below.

Square tubing with bent pin for use with RIG207 (anchor receiver hitch) or RIG220 (vertical pull support) when attaching to a vehicle.
Tree/pole mount with rubber pads, anchor strap 75 mm wide x 3 m long (3” x 9.8’). This anchor system allows you to firmly attach the winch on a tree or a post which makes it easier for working from one point for extended periods of time. The winch can therefore be installed at a more comfortable height and the pivoting support aligns the winch automatically with the load. To use it, you will need the receiver hitch winch anchor for 50 mm (2”) square tubing. (RIG207 - see above.)
Tree/Pole minimal diameter: 12” (30 cm) Tree/Pole maximum diameter: 36” (91 cm) with the 9.8’ (3 m) sling included Weight: 17 lb (7.5 kg)

The Open Face Corner Block allows you to change the line's pull direction on your Portable Winch, which can be of great help working in the forest or urban environment, as you can work around obstacles. The corner block can also be used to get some lift, or to double your line for more power. Use with an appropriate sling or strap and with pulley down to avoid the line jumping free when slacked.
Weighs 5.3 lb, 4" diameter sheave, 9 7/8" x 4" overall, zinc-plated steel construction, 20 kN (4,400 lb) WLL.
This steel device allows you to install it on ropes up to 1/2" in diameter so that when it reaches the corner block, the rope is popped free from the block and allowed to run in its original path to the winch. Installation is a simple as turning the link a half-turn around the rope and inserting in the steel cartridge.
Made from 3/8” HPPE (High Performance Polyethylene), this choker has high strength (15,500 lb MBS) while remaining easy to work with and much lighter than a chain choker. Three links of 1/4” chain and a foot-long steel rod at one end make it easy to push under logs and provide an anchor point for a grab hook. A spliced eye at the other end is used to 'choke' the log.
Made of 1/4” (6 mm), grade 70 steel, the choker-chain is equipped with a special C-hook for quick, secure installation and removal and a 12” (30 cm) long ‘needle’ letting you slide it easily under logs or through the skidding cone.
