What is a hand winch?
A hand winch is a mechanical device with a vertical cable drum that can wind but not store ropes under power drive. It also refers to the winch perpendicular to the deck axis and is a self-protection and traction device for vehicles and ships. It can be used for self-rescue and rescue in harsh environments such as snow, swamp, desert, beach, muddy mountain roads, and can carry out clearance, towing, installation of facilities and other operations under other conditions. It is an indispensable safety device for the military, police, petroleum, hydrology, environmental protection, forestry, transportation, public security, border defense, fire protection, and other outdoor sports.
The difference between hand winch and electric winch
Hand hoist winch can be divided into electric winches and hand winches. Both winches are mostly used in lifting operations, but the two have significant differences in appearance, work content, and working principle. The following we will analyze the difference between hand winch and electric winch from several aspects.
The working principle of the two winches is very different
It is easy to understand from the name that the electric winch achieves mechanical operation through electric energy, thereby driving the drum to rotate. hand winch is driven by handly turning the handle to rotate the drum.
Different working environments
Electric winches are more suitable for lifting heavy weights and solving tonnage lifting that cannot be completed by manpower. hand winches are more suitable for lifting small weights and are more suitable for non-electric environment operations.
Differences in inspection work
When inspecting the electric winch, it is not only necessary to inspect whether the winch itself is intact, but also to check the surrounding electrical equipment and voltage. The inspection points of the hand winch are more focused on the winch itself.
The design of electric winches is more precise, saves labor, improves work efficiency, and consumes electric energy. Therefore, the price of electric winches is higher than that of hand winches.
This is the difference between electric winch and hand winch. You can choose the corresponding winch according to your own working environment.
