Winch Industry Information


A winch is a mechanical lifting device that uses a crank to wind up a cable around a cylindrical spool.

Quick links to Winches Information

Applications of Winches

Unlike a hoist, which is used to lift loads vertically, a winch generally pulls horizontally. They manage loads that humans cannot physically lift or lower alone. Winches are used for towing, lifting, and anchoring. They can be operated manually or powered by a pneumatic, hydraulic, or electric motor. Winches are used both in commercial and residential environments. Industrial winches are used for automotive, construction, manufacturing, marine, military, mining, and transportation purposes.

Winch Design and Customization

Winches differ by diameter, load capacity, line material, length, and maximum loaded line speed. Winches can employ wire, rope, cable, or chain to move heavy loads. Winches come in an abundance of sizes, from small hand winches for light jobs to large units capable of moving heavy machinery.
