    This has been very informative so for, thanks to all contributing! There appears to be a smaller model (PCW3000) that is an "all position" engine. so does that mean that it would pull on all sorts of different angles without a kill switch activating? At any rate, this model only has pulling capacity of 1500 lb. so quite limited in that sense.

    Hey Andy, You are right about the expense... The thing is that one main use for this Winch will be clearing dead-fall on my own property. And as you may know, that is sort of a continuous process. In addition, the Arborist work that i do, is more in the landscape industry and we often come across issues where a tool like this would come in handy (its not always ideal to drive your truck into someones backyard to pull a stump or log out). However, i think you are right about the pulling capacity being an issue. Can i "block" this rope for a higher pulling capacity?

    I would suggest that the size of trees that i am moving can be as heavy as 1500-2000 pounds. Hey Butch, I'm James. First time poster.

    Hello all, I was hoping for some feedback from the arborists using winches. I am in the market for a portable winch for clearing dead-fall and moving logs in remote areas in which I cant get my truck into. Right now i am leaning towards the winches from www.westcoastwinch.com they are portable, light weight and use capstan drum technology. If anyone has used this type of winch before or have one that they swear by, please let me know. its quite an expensive investment, so i would like to be sure i am making the right decision, and you guys can help with that! I will post and wait for your reply, Thanks!
