This is a traction device with a hydraulic motor that converts the energy of the oil flow into the tractive effort. Such a powerful device is able to lift the load to the specified height or perform towing work on a horizontal surface.
Fans of motorsport, especially off-road races, must have a traction hydraulic winch in their arsenal in order to independently remove a car or ATV from sand, snowdrifts, swamps, and viscous mud if necessary.
Equipment with a hydraulic traction device is indispensable for tow trucks and special vehicles. Almost all experienced tow truck drivers use an oil winch to easily load a car or other cargo onto a platform. In addition, a large number of boats and boats are equipped with this traction device, quite often fishing boats too.
Automobile hydraulic winches are used more often, of similar power, as electric ones. This is because these have more traction load and cope more effectively in extreme situations or weather conditions.
With the help of such a powerful winch, not only a passenger car but also an SUV, special equipment of a military category, and even a tractor, if necessary, can be pulled onto the tow truck platform. After all, such a tool is capable of creating a pulling force from 4,000 kg to 30,000 kg or more.
Structurally, each winch is similar to the other, since the main constituent elements are a drum, a cable, and a transmission mechanism. However, hydraulic models are somewhat more difficult to work with their functional features. The complexity of this unit lies in the components of the equipment:
All these components are compactly mounted on a frame with provided cable outlets. This winch works thanks to the pressure and energy of the oil and is usually connected to the hydraulic system of the vehicle, internal combustion engine or hydraulic power steering. The method of connecting the winch depends on the vehicle you need to work with.
If you still have doubts when choosing a traction device, then you should consider that it is the traction hydraulic winch that is the best among others. This is reflected in three main factors:
