*Note: the ARM rope grabbing system cannot be installed on our other pulling winches. The main reason is that the PCW3000-Li, PCW3000, PCW5000 and PCW5000-HS winches do not have a centrifugal clutch, which is an essential component of the system on the PCW4000.

The PCW4000 develops a remarkable pulling force of 1,000 kg without mechanical advantage.

By adding a pulley system, you can go up to five times (5x) the pulling force. That means, with two double pulleys, you could pull up to 5,000 kg.

Design & Features

We are proud to partner again with Honda on this model featuring the Honda GX50 4-stroke 360° inclinable engine. Among its numerous characteristics, note the smooth performance, proven reliability, emissions compliant, and ease of start-up, of operation and maintenance

Featuring a centrifugal clutch that activates when you pull the rope and anti-rollback mechanism (ARM), the PCW4000 is the safest winch of its line.

When the rope is released, the drum stops spinning and the ARM does its job by holding the load in position! To disengage the rope from the mechanism, a simple lateral movement is all it takes!

The last born

We have listened to our users community to fulfill another need! After more than a year of hard work, this model of winch came in our PRO line. It allows users to control and hold a load flawlessly while winching. Easy to secure and easy to disengage.

PCW4000 Winch

This winch works great! With quality to match. Great product and would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a winch where a vehicle mounted winch can’t go.

Easy to Use Powerful Winch

I used my PCW4000 for the first time today to aid in cleaning up downed trees and limbs from multiple winter storms this year. The winch was very easy to use and handled the loads with ease. The Honda engine was quick to start. The PCW4000 saved me a lot of time and effort and it is definitely worth the money. I should also say the on-line videos at the Portable Winch website are very informative and helpful.

Quality hardware that does the job

When I received the winch, I was amazed at the quality and size -- well built and compact. Among other things, I have used it for pullling a boat up a hill, pulling a PWC on a trailer out of a lake through the muck and pulling boat lifts from lake to land. The anti rollback mechanism is a great plus. This winch has been a very good purchase for me.
