Areas of application and tractive force of winches

There is a very wide range of applications for cable winches in everyday practice, the requirements of which often cannot be covered by just one type. In principle, the following characteristics apply to a cable winch - regardless of the drive:

  • Clutch: allows the pull rope to be quickly unrolled in order to detect more distant objects as well
  • Remote control: winch control by radio or cable (depending on equipment)
  • Cable guide: the winch cable winds reliably only onto the cable drum
  • Pulley: increases the pulling force of the winch      

Traction force up to 800kg:

electric and manual versions, they are suitable for trailers on which the corresponding loads are towed, e.g. compact class rollable cars, motorcycles, boats on trailers, mobile wood splitters - in short, everything that is movable. Disassembly is party possible

Traction force 1,000kg to 3.5t:

electric and hydraulic versions, up to 1,100 kg also with manual operation. They are used on medium- and high-capacity trailers, lighter towing platforms, off-road vehicles, car transporters, as forestry winches, etc.

Traction force 4t to 5t:

both electric and hydraulic winches are available. They are particularly suitable for more powerful tow trucks for recovering motor vehicles, unimogs, heavy tractors, fire engines, etc.


Manual winch

The force is transmitted to the rope by muscle power.

  • Advantage: no electricity required
  • Disadvantage: traction force limited

Electric winch

A 12- or 24-V motor drives the winch drum.

  • Advantage: usually, power is available on any vehicle, easy installation
  • Disadvantage: very high power consumption, becomes very hot during continuous operation, requires cooling times

Hydraulic winch

A hydraulic motor drives the winch drum.

  • Advantage: permanently loadable (sufficient oil cooling or quantity provided), fast rope speed, traction force up to 30t available.
  • Disadvantage: Requires hydraulic system on the carrier vehicle.
