St. Louis Semi Truck Towing’s team of winching operators have seen it all. They are prepared to winch your vehicle from the most precarious places in all types of weather. Many people are interested in how winching works for heavy vehicles. Here is a quick guide:
Tow Winch: The Basics
When you have to drive through rough weather on a regular basis, it’s good to know that if you get stuck in a ditch or other off road area, a quick call to St. Louis Semi Truck Towing gets a trained driver on site fast to winch your truck back to freedom.
Winches are the most efficient devices for pulling, towing and lifting heavy vehicles. They are mounted on the rear of trucks.
- Parts of a Tow Winch
Winches consist of a cable wire, center drum, motor and gear casing.
- The Cable Wire
The cable wire can be steel or a chain and is fitted around the center drum. It can be between 30- and 120 feet in length.
- The Center Drum
The center drum stops the cable wire from entangling and keeps it contained when not in use. It rotates when you wind the cable in or out.
- The Motor
An electronic of hydraulic motor powers the center drum.
- The Gear Casing
The gear casing applies the motor power to the cable, giving the winch its pulling power. A strong winch is necessary for getting large vehicles out of difficult places.
How Does A Winch Work?
To recover a vehicle using a winch, first set it on “free spool” and pull the needed length of cable. Then attach the clasp to the vehicle.
Before starting the pulling process, place the winch line damper on the cable, especially if it’s a steel cable. The winch line damper protects you from the kinetic energy generated by the cable. Finally, put the winch in gear to begin the pulling process.
St. Louis Towing’s recovery operators can winch with the best of them. We are ready for the toughest jobs and can recover large vehicles from anywhere at any time.
