I bought a capstan winch from Treadlight a year or so ago, and they were very helpful and easy to deal with.

I went for the DOCMA which is lightweight but really nicely built. It's not only the cheapest option, but the pulling speed is about 50% faster than the EDER and almost twice as fast as the PWC. Treadlight sell them all though, and if you're not sure which is the best one for you give Sion a ring and I'm sure he'll be happy to talk you through it.
