This 250 ft. long cable is great for lighter and longer pulls, such as wire fence tensioning, pulling small game animals out of the bush, or pulling a stuck off road atv out of the mud.

The smaller diameter of the cable allows the winch drum to wind up the full length. The maximum load we recommend for this cable is 2,000 lbs./900 kg. - but if you use one Lewis Winch Snatch Block, this cable will pull up to 4,000 lbs./1,800 kg.

8,000 pounds of portable pulling power!
Unlike electric winches that drain your battery rendering the winch useless, our portable winch is powered by a gas-driven chainsaw.

The Lewis Winch is made of a rugged cast-aluminum alloy housing making it extremely strong and lightweight. The Lewis Winch uses oil-bathed steel gears, which ensure years of trouble-free service in the most hostile environments.

With a variable line speed of 60 to 80 ft/min, the Lewis Winch will pull 4,000 lbs. in a straight line, and up to 8,000 lbs using one Lewis Winch Snatch Block.

Your new Lewis Winch will be shipped to you in a box that will include the following items:
- One Lewis Winch Model 400 MK2 c/w clutch and brake
- 150 feet long 3/16" galvanized aircraft cable with a safety hook
- Universal Adaptor Kits to fit all chainsaws
- Owners Manual
- One year free-replacement warranty from the manufacturer
The shipping weight of the box is 35 lbs./16 kg. - but the actual Lewis Winch 400MK2 weighs only 22 lbs./10 kg without the cable.

The 3/16"cable supplied with your Lewis Winch is 150 feet long which is the maximum amount of 3/16" cable the drum will hold.

If you dont normally need to pull 150 ft. in one pull, you will want to consider cutting the cable shorter so that it is easier to handle while you work. A shorter cable is also easier to evenly wind back on the spool of the winch without jamming. Simply re-position the Lewis Winch if you need to continue the pull.

However, if you need to work with a longer cable than 150 ft., we also offer the N1009 Cable, which is 250 ft. long and 1/8 in diameter.

This longer and lighter cable is offered as an accessory and it is also made of a galvanized aircraft cable with a safety hook.
If you are pulling 3,000 to 3,500 lbs. in a straight line (or up to 6000 lbs) with one Lewis Winch Snatch Block, you should use a general-duty chainsaw with an engine size of 5-6 horsepower (bhp).

And if you need to pull up to 4,000 lbs in a straight line or 8,000 lbs with one Lewis Winch Snatch Block, make sure to use a heavy duty chainsaw with an engine size of up to 7 horsepower (bhp).

Please note that the operator accepts all risks when using an engine with more than 100 ccs or 7 bhp, as you could damage your Lewis Winch or break the cable and potentially cause injury.

Chainsaws must be properly maintained and serviced to ensure that the throttle and clutch are in proper working condition since this directly affects the safe performance of your Lewis Winch.

Electric chainsaws and smaller gas chainsaws will give satisfactory performance only with lighter loads. The Universal Adaptor Kit included in the shipment does not come with an adaptor for electric chainsaws, but note that such adaptor is available free of charge from the manufacturer.



You will want to choose the right chainsaw for your new Lewis Winch, because the size of your chainsaw is important and should be considered whenever you work with our portable winch.

If you are pulling in a straight line 2,000 to 2,500 lbs.(or up to 5000 lbs.) using one Lewis Winch Snatch Block, you can use a light-duty chainsaw with an engine size of 3 horsepower (bhp)  (48 ccs, 18+ bar with 3/8 chain).



This is important because such a chainsaw comes with a commercial-grade clutch that although it might sometimes slip under a heavy load, it guarantees that the clutch will not burn up.

Never let your Lewis Winch gear-box run dry. Nearly all gear damage occurs in a dry gear-box. Maintain 5 oz. of oil in the gear-box at all times, but any oil or grease is better than none at all.

If you are away from civilization and your gear-box runs dry, use any weight oil you have or even a can of spray-grease will keep the gears lubricated. Monitor the gear-box more often and be careful it doesn't overheat, but you can continue to use your Lewis Winch until you are able to re-fill the gear-box with the correct lubricant.

The gear box is filled at the factory with 5 oz. of 80/90 weight gear oil. To check the oil level, stand your winch vertically on its spool and remove the oil fill-plug. Fill with oil to the level of the fill-plug, but do not overfill!

Always keep all nuts, bolts and set screws tight and do not operate your Lewis Winch unless the chain-guard is in place.

If you have any difficulty releasing your Lewis Winch clutch because of tension remaining in the cable, try using a chain-binder in your anchor set-up. This will allow you to easily release the cable tension, but always remember to engage the Lewis Winch hand-brake when releasing the clutch under load.

Make sure to take the slack out of the cable, as well as the rest of your set-up - before throttling up your chainsaw to avoid a sudden jerk on the cable that could break the shear-pins of your Lewis Winch - causing the spool to free-wheel.

Its a good idea to use a short bungee-cord to always keep tension on the Hand-Brake to prevent the cable from freely unwinding. In case of a jam, stop the engine, free the load from the obstacle and start pulling again.
