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!
Equipped with a centrifugal clutch, this new model allows users to control and hold a load flawlessly while winching. 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!

If you are a hunter, you know how long and hard you have to work even after you get the kill to bring it back to your vehicle or camp. The solution is in a Portable Winch, a gas-powered tool capable of pulling up to 1550 pounds of trophy worthy big game through any terrain. The PCW3000 Portable Winch is our newest product, designed with Hunters in mind. The PCW3000 is ideal for hunting trips on horseback, backpack, boat, ATV, and 4X4.
What makes this Winch the perfect tool for hunters is its portability in combination with the pulling power it produces. Despite only weighing 20lbs, the Portable Winch is capable of pulling up to 1550lbs of dead weight: more than enough to pull a Grizzly, Deer, Elk, Moose, and Wolf from the bush. If you can hunt it, we can pull it!
The incredibly light weight of the Winch makes it easy to take wherever game is found. Deep into the bush, to the mountains, over bodies of water, the PCW3000 can be taken anywhere at any time. If you need to pull an animal up a hill, out of a swamp or ravine, or through dense forest, the PCW3000 is able to get the job done. The Portable Winch can also be used to hang a Deer for dressing, move firewood and set up tents at your camp, and deploying and pulling your boat, ATV, or 4X4.
The All-Position Honda engine is part of what makes the Winch so easy to trek with. Unlike other gas powered winches, the PCW3000 does not have a fuel pan, which allows it to be stored upside down and carried any way without the risk of flooding the engine. We made the Portable Winch as tough as the hunter that carries it!
West Coast Winch also offers a variety of accessories to make your PCW3000 even more successful on your hunting trips. Some of these accessories include a waterproof carrying case, various pulleys to change the direction of your pull, and mounts to attach the Winch to your truck, ATV, or any tree. We also offer a Portable Winch Hunting Kit to give you $90 worth of savings on the PCW3000 Winch and accessories. To see the Portable Winch in action, look to the videos section to see a customer use the Winch to pull a moose over 600 feet on a single line pull!
Riding in your boat, ATV, 4X4, or Side-by-Side is enjoyable – until you get stuck. Don’t let it ruin your day – make sure you keep your Portable Winch handy! Both Portable Winch models are so powerful they can pull any sized vehicle stuck in snow, mud, or sand – even a semi truck! (Check the Video tab to see for yourself).
The Portable Winch has the advantage of being independent from your vehicle. This enables you to base the Winch in the location that offers the best pull! If you typically install a Jeep or truck winch on the front bumper of your vehicle, your retrieval options are limited if you get stuck in a ditch head first. The Portable Winch is able to pull your truck/Jeep/boat/ATV from any angle necessary!
Use the Winch as a boat owner as well! Attach the boat to your trailer, deploy her in water, and pull it back out again when you’re done. The easy set up and install of this Winch will have you spending less time pulling your boat and more time enjoying it! The Portable Winch is an easy and convenient tool to pull your boat over a dyke or sandbar.
A number of accessories can help you get your vehicle un-stuck and ready to go! We offer a hitch plate mounting option to attach to your truck, as well as snatch blocks and slings to ease your pull. Check out our videos of the Portable Winch pulling an ATV through the mud and a Semi from the snow in the video tab above.
