More about Anchorings
As our winches are portable, they can be anchored anywhere! As you will notice in this section, Portable Winch Co. has developed different modular anchoring devices that allow a wide variety of fixed objects to be used as anchor points. Whether it is a cylindrical object (tree, pole, etc.), a vehicle, a pylon, and even a floor, all can be used as an anchor point for your winch, using the right equipment especially designed for this purpose.
ON CYLINDRICAL OBJECT
The easiest way is to use the 2.5-metre sling provided with each winch. Attach the sling to one of the winch’s hooks, wrap the sling around your anchor point and insert its other end into the second hook.
There are 2 and 3-metre slings to adapt to different sizes or poles. Other anchoring systems will give you more stability and a more comfortable work position.
The PCA-1269 is designed to be as light as possible, while the PCA-1263 offers several possibilities in combination with the PCA-1268, PCA-1332, PCA-1264 or PCA-2264 for instance.
Furthermore, the PCA-1263 will not damage the tree or pole on which it is anchored thanks to its rubber pads.
ON A VEHICLE
We offer anchoring systems that are suitable for North American and European tow hitch and tow balls.
The anchor plate PCA-1261 is excellent for light works, but its use is not recommended for industrial applications.
For an intensive use, it is preferable to use square tubes (PCA-1267 or PCA-1501) in North America, or the Heck-Pack system (PCA-1266) in Europe, in combination with other accessories
ON A PYLON
The pylon-mount winch anchor (PCA-1806) is designed to be firmly secured on the 90° "V" shaped steel angles that are commonly used in the construction of pylons and telecommunication towers.
It will then be combined with other accessories depending on the application.
