With a 2,200 pound pulling capacity, this portable capstan winch is lightweight but strong. It helps bring down trees and skid logs to more accessible sites for loading or processing. We carry a large variety of anchor options, from simple and more affordable polyester slings that wrap around trees (one 6' sling included), to sturdier but more expensive mounting systems for attaching to trees and poles.
Intended for use with Portable Winch's double braided polyester low stretch rope, which is available in lengths from 164 to 656' (they are produced in metric, so lengths from 50 m to 200 m). The rope is tied to the object to be moved and wrapped three or four times around the capstan drum. When the engine is running, the capstan drum rotates continuously and the friction created by pulling on the free end of the rope pulls the object. With the standard 2-1/4'' (57 mm ) capstan drum, the load will move at a speed up to 40'/min, depending on the weight of the load. You can also buy the 85 mm (3-3/8'') capstan drum which will give you up to 60'/min speed.
