Discover the all-new PCW4000!
Portable Winch Co. pulls off another master stroke in offering a winch that, while staying true to its predecessors by its power, its light weight and its reliability, stands out with a new feature that provides perfect control over the movement of a load : the quick release automatic anti rollback mechanism, also know as the ARM!

We have been working on this project for more than a year to add to our winch PRO line a model allowing users to control and hold a load flawlessly while winching. This new winch is equipped with a centrifugal clutch. As a result, the drum does not immediately start turning at the start of the engine.

After having done a few wraps of rope on the drum, all that is left to do is to insert it in the cam cleat, pass it on the exit guide and pull on it when the time comes. This action then engages the centrifugal clutch and the winch starts pulling. As soon as the tension on the rope is released, the drum stops turning and the anti rollback mechanism does its job by holding the load in position. To free the rope, a simple lateral movement is needed. This gives the user perfect control throughout the pulling operation.

This model also features the most recent Honda GX50 4-stroke 360° inclinable engine. Among its other numerous characteristics, note the smooth performance, proven reliability, emissions compliant, and ease of start-up, of operation and maintenance. Users will therefore have the freedom to use this winch in any conditions and any positions!

The PCW4000 develops a remarkable pulling force of 2,200 lb 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 11,000 lb!

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.
