Hydraulically operated winch is ideal for all types of specialized transport from low-bed operations to wreckers equipment and can be set up to operate either singly or in combinations. They are reliable, rugged and built to last with user friendly simple lever operated controls. They are an excellent addition to crawlers, skidders and all-terrain vehicles. The stationary usage is also possible. The hydraulic winches can also be clutch-operated that makes for an easier and safer usage.
Hydraulic winches add weight to a vehicle extremity and may require stronger springs. Winching is potentially dangerous and thus, some precautions need to be observed. A snatch strap or any other other elastic device should not be used with a winch. Good equipment should be used and damaged winch cable should be discarded. The hydraulic winch does not require the extra battery and isolator that is compulsory in an electric winch.
