Winches are designed to pull loads horizontally across a relatively level surface of pulling ỏ lifting with limit incline level 45Deg.


  • Winches normally use dynamic brakes that are specifically designed to support rolling loads, not lift dead weights. The gears of a dynamic braking system automatically lock when pulling a load, but lifting a weight vertically can overwhelm the strength of this system, causing the load to slip and potentially damaging the gears.
