Types and Benefits Of Winches

If you're going off-road, don't leave home without a winch. It's extremely helpful when your jeep gets stuck in deep mud, rocks, muddy river stream, or even quicksand. Winches are mounted on the front bumper. Not all bumpers support winches. They're supported by certain aftermarket bumpers meant for off-road use.

Winches are basically of three types:

Elecric Winch

These are motor powered winches that need to be connected to an external power source such as a battery. Electric winches are suitable for pulling small to medium loads ranging between 1700-4700 lbs. Ideal for an occasional pull once in a while in the woods. Electric winches have versatile applications and can even be used to pull light trailers.

Hydraulic Winch

Hydraulic winches have a greater pulling power than electric winches, capable of pulling anywhere between 10,000 to 20,000 lbs. These harness power of the engine to pull heavier weights out of the mud.

Industrial Winch

Industrial winches are heavy duty hydraulic winches capable of lifting and pulling extremely heavy weights. They're meant for heavy commercial use.

Out of the three types, electric and hydraulic winches are used for pulling automobiles.

Selection of the right winch for your car

The main decisive factor when it comes to choosing the right winch is the weight of the vehicle. Ideally, the pull rating of your winch should be 50% more than the vehicle weight. For example, a jeep weighing 10,000 lbs needs a winch rated for 15000 lbs. Every manufacturer makes some design variation and installation may vary accordingly. An electric winch, for an instance, may be installed vertically or horizontally.

Benefits Of Winches

  • Easy installation on specified bumpers.
  • Drags your truck/jeep out of mud holes, literally.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Can be used for a variety of other purposes.

Precautions to be taken while using a winch

  • Maintain a safe distance from winch line
  • Keep a jacket, thick blanket, or a tree limb over winch line to avoid injury in case the winch line suddenly snaps.
  • Don't misjudge the weight to pull rating ratio when buying a winch.
