PCW5000 portable winch

Recommended Posts

Of all the machines I sell this is the one which has surprised me most.

 

Before I saw a PCW5000 in action I didn’t know I needed one. Now I have one I don’t know what I would do without one! It has quite literally changed the way we work.

For example in thinning we used to work our way down a row felling into any gaps and reluctantly getting a Tirfor type out when ever something got stuck.

 

Now we set the PCW5000 up at the start of the day and assisted fell everything meaning nothing gets hung up.

The PCW5000 is just so much easier to setup and operate than a mechanical winch.

 

The 50cc engine takes all the hard work out of winching.

 

1000kg pull is plenty and with a couple of pulley blocks you can get 3000kg pull out of it.

 

You can run any length of rope on it. It also has good line speed.

 

This makes it great for extracting over long distances, up slopes etc.

We have found it invaluable on so many jobs: thinning, extracting, wetland work, assisted felling, windblow.

 

There is an amazing array of accessories for the PCW5000 from pulley blocks to skidding cones, choker chains, anchor devices etc.

 

Made in Canada, CE marked, 50cc Honda Engine.

 

The PCW5000 is priced at £1260 + VAT.

 

If you are thinking of getting one or just want to learn more please get in touch.
