The Arabic numerals in the winch model indicate the maximum pulling force. For example, runva's gew9000 refers to its maximum pulling force of 9000 LBF, and 1 LBF is about 0.45 kg. The principle of choosing winch is generally 1.5 times the pulling force of vehicle weight. For example, if the weight of Cherokee is 1600 kg, the winch tension should not be less than (2000045) × 1.5 = 5333 LBF. It is recommended to use a winch with 8000 LBF or more, because the maximum tension is nominal on the winch model, but it is a limit in actual use.


Truck Winch If the vehicle is used under the limit of engine for a long time, it will inevitably affect the service life. At the same time, in the limit state, the winch will break the steel cable and burn the motor, which will cause serious injury to the bystander, and the vehicle may also lose control. The tension that the winch may bear in the work is random and unpredictable, so it is the endless pursuit of cross-country enthusiasts to install the winch with high tension as much as possible. In addition, the location, angle, support and load of the rescued vehicle must also be considered.


Understand the advantages and disadvantages of electric winch: the electric winch is driven by the vehicle's own power system. 1. Advantages: it can be used normally when the vehicle is off, which is its biggest advantage and incomparable with other winches. Especially for the area with more water, it has great advantages. The simple installation can realize multi position installation and rapid displacement, which is the most commonly used winch for off-road vehicles. 2. Disadvantages: ATV/UTV Winch can't be used for a long time, which is caused by the limitations of the vehicle's own power system, its own heating and other reasons. Most of the electric winches can provide a small driving force, which can only be applied in one direction. When installed in front of the vehicle, it can only be pulled forward, and when installed in the rear, it can only be pulled backward.
