Portable Winch

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.

Cases and other accessories sold separately.
