Proper use of winch towing

Hits:Updated:2018-06-22 13:06:29【Print】

If the vehicle is in trouble, analyze the situation and determine the reason for jamming the vehicle before pulling out the winch cable. Decided whether to proceed or return. If the vehicle is heavily "hanged" on rocks or stumps, consider lifting the vehicle with jacks and stuffing under the tires to clear the obstacles.
 
Pull an Oriented Rope to a tree or large stone.
 
If the vehicle is really stuck, use the pulley or "cable pulley" and fold back the vehicle, using the wrapped tree strap and U-shaped hook installed at the root of the tree. Do not wind the winch wire around the tree as it may cause the tree to die.
 
If necessary, the winch can be towed at a certain angle. Be careful that the ropes build up on the side of the winch hub. Do not attempt to guide the cable while towing, as this may result in serious injury. After clearing the obstacle, pull the cable out and rewind it.
 
If possible, use the power of the vehicle and the power of the winch. The length of the control cable is sufficient to reach the driver's side window. Make sure to use the power of the winch and the vehicle gradually and steadily. Do not jerk and do not press on the winch cable.
 
If there are two cars and a winch:
 
1. Connect the winch hook to the trapped vehicle.
 
2. Hang the trapped vehicle to the lowest gear and gently increase the throttle to assist the winch towing.
 
3. Squeeze the brake pedal of the anchored vehicle, hold it in place, and place stones or logs in front of the wheel if necessary.
 
4. The anchored vehicle can also hang reverse gear, and gradually pull the stuck vehicle. When using this technology, you can get the power of two cars and the power of the winch.
 
If there are two cars and both cars are equipped with winches, the power of both winches can be used.
 
1. Easy and basic winch towing
 
Use a winch to hang directly. Both vehicles must be in four-wheel drive. Tow the vehicle to hang upside down and slowly increase the throttle while towing. Trapped vehicles should hang in the first gear and slightly increase the throttle when towing.
 
When hooking the vehicle, hook an appropriately mounted tow hook or frame. Do not hook onto the bumper!
 
A two-wheel pulley consisting of a pinch pulley or pulley can effectively double the winch capacity. Use this technique in the face of more difficult situations.
 
2. Use winch
 
The first pull on the winch hub is the rated pull of the winch. For example, the winch has a rated pull force of 8000 Newtons, which is only the rated pull force of 8000 Newtons when the winch cable is wound around the first turn of the rotating hub. With each subsequent winding of the hub, the winch loses about 1000 Newtons of tension.
 
Remember: The winch capacity can be effectively doubled through the use of a pinch pulley.
 
3. The correct way to connect two traction bands
 
A safe way to connect two nylon straps is to use a 1 1/4" hardwood dowel pin (12" long). Solid twigs can also be well connected with two traction belts. It is also possible to slide the traction band collar over the leaf spring lugs and secure with a 1 1/4” locating pin or piece of wood. Do not use a U-shaped hook. If the nylon band breaks, it can become a lethal projectile.
 
4. Winch use summary
 
Always wear gloves when using the winch. Winch steel ropes often have burrs and can scratch their hands.
 
When using a winch, always use a shield, large canvas, towel or other items on the winch cable, which will play a buffer protection role when the cable is disconnected.
 
When using a winch, do not stand beside the cable or straddle the cable.
 
If there is no tow hook, only the frame or leaf spring lug can be hooked. Be careful when hooking the vehicle to avoid potentially dangerous conditions or damage to the vehicle.
 
Do not pull the winch cable or use it like a leash.
 
Do not wrap the hook around the winch reel. Gradually loosen 3 feet from the winch roll bearing.
 
Do not attempt to wind the wire evenly while the winch is being towed. Always pull the cable after it has been towed and rewind it evenly.
 
Do not hold down the winch cable.
 
Do not wind the winch wire around the object. This will cause it to kink.
 
Do not hook on the winch cable. This will cut the cable or weaken the performance of the cable.
 
Do not use a winch to support or lift others.
 
Always use a minimum of five turns of wire rope on the winch hub before using the winch.
 
When using a winch, always keep everyone away from the cable as much as possible, at least 30 feet away.
 
Take special care when winding winch cables. Keep hands and fingers out of contact.
 
At the end of the winch towing and starting to wind the wire rope, a wire rope of about 3 inches in length is to be left so that the winch hook can be freely connected to the tow hook or the bumper.
 
Remember to untie the winch and unlock the control cable when completing the towing.
 
If the space for the winch towing is limited, it is possible to tie the straps or the leash to the roots of the small trees or dense bushes.
 
Do not wind the winch cable around the tree or hook the winch cable. This will cut the cable or weaken the performance of the cable. Twisting a steel cable around a tree can damage or cause it to die, which is illegal in many states and can result in large fines.
