Used in mixed land type including boggy land which is machine-inaccessible. Very simple to use, extremely durable and very reliable. Pulls tree trunk after tree trunk and simply needs gas refills (infrequently) and occasional oil changes (very easy). Unbeatable piece of kit.... Choker chain could be a touch longer
I love the product! It's starts right up and can haul heavy logs uphill at a respectable speed. Add a block and a few pulleys and you have a real workhorse. The flexibility this winch provides is like no other! I will send a video the next time I use it.
Great winch! Pulled some pretty big logs(about 12'x18") on flat ground. Pretty impressive for this little winch. Going to pull some bigger ones soon but going to need an extra block.
Works better than I thought it would. Not only does it winch down trees, but helps in falling (felling) too. I do my notch cut and most of my back cut, then I control the fall with the winch. It’s great.
I have been owned the PCW5000 for two years now and can say I could not be happier with the winch. It starts and runs flawlessly. I also highly recommend the skidding cone as it nearly eliminates hangups when moving logs. The only modification I have made is to use a small stool that the winch sits on when strapped to a tree to keep it from rising/bouncing off the ground or tipping when in-use. Thanks for an awesome product! Brian - State of Michigan.
Thank you so much for your great comment! Did you know that we developed the anchoring system PCA-1269 precisely to keep the winch leveled and balanced at all times? Nevertheless, we are happy that you took the time to write to us!
