Hand Winch vs. Electric Winch
Winches are mainly divided into electric winches and hand winches. Two kinds of winches are mostly used in lifting operations, and they are also lifting equipment often used in emergency rescue missions. Winches have been used in industry for decades. This handy tool is used to wind wire rope. In the past, more effort was spent on bending thick steel ropes by hand. However, it is not recommended to use this method in an industrial setting.
That's why electric winches entered the market. This mechanical tool makes it possible and simpler to bend the wire rope on the drum. The advantage of the winch drum is that the wire rope is held in place according to the process flow and is completed quickly. Because of this, these wire ropes are used in the industry to carry heavy loads.
Both types of winches can be very useful in different environments, but they are very different in terms of appearance, work content and working principle. The following will analyze the difference between hand winches and electric winches from several aspects
Difference between electric winch and hand winch
First, the working principles of the two types of winches are very different, and it is easy to understand from the name. Electric winch is the most common type of winch. It uses electrical energy to achieve mechanical operation, thereby driving the reel to rotate. Electric ATV winch is easy to install and can achieve multi-position installation and rapid displacement. The hand winch drives the reel to rotate by manually turning the hand lever. A hand winch is a mechanical tool that pulls the goods by shaking the winch drum by hand. A gear-driven winch wire rope drum pulls the cargo by turning the wire rope wound around it. Hand winch with automatic braking device.
Second, the working environment is different, and the electric winch is more suitable for large-tonnage lifting to solve the tonnage lifting that cannot be completed by manpower. The hand winch is more suitable for some small tonnage lifting, and is more suitable for operation in an environment without electricity.
Third, the difference in the inspection work. When testing the electric winch, it not only detects whether the winch itself is in good condition, but also detects the surrounding power equipment and voltage. Checkpoints for hand winches focus more on the winch itself.
Fourth, the difference in price, the design of the electric winch is more precise, saves manpower, improves work efficiency, and consumes electricity, so the price of the electric winch is higher than that of the hand winch.
The above is the difference between an electric winch and a hand winch. You can choose the corresponding winch according to your working environment.
