Take serious pulling power anywhere you go. This lightweight, portable, gas-powered winch has 2,500 lb. pulling capacity. If you need to bring down hung-up trees, pull out-of-reach logs, or get a vehicle unstuck, the Portable Winch is for you. The unit is easily carried and can be anchored to anything using the included 6'sling or the separate vehicle hitch plate. The Portable Winch can be used with any low-stretch rope and works great with double braid ropes like Stable Braid. 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, depending on the weight of the load.

This system was designed for vertical pulling. The 50 mm (2”) square tubing fits on the tree/pole mount (RIG213. See below.). It is designed so the rope goes through the pulley and then right up. It offers a solid support and is ideal for pulling electrical cables through conduits. Used with the tree/pole mount (RIG213) sold separately. Weight: 18 lb (8.2 kg)
Square tubing with bent pin for use with RIG207 (anchor receiver hitch) or RIG220 (vertical pull support) when attaching to a vehicle.
Optional capstan drum adds speed to your work. Easily installed, this drum will allow you to do jobs that require less pulling capacity quicker.
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.)

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.

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.
