5 Reasons Why Hand Winches Are Worth Your Time
If you’re looking to shift a heavy vehicle such as a car or a boat, there are many winches you can use to achieve your goal. One of the more surprising type of winch it is worth considering is a heavy duty hand winch. Here at Super Winch Power we pride ourselves on the range of excellent hand winches we can offer for all your lifting and pulling needs.
When it comes to putting them to use for your application, hand winches can boast many benefits that one might not expect. But what kind of advantages do hand winches offer? Below you can find just a few of the reasons why a hand winch might be the right choice for your needs.
A diverse type of winch
It might be tempting to view hand winches as a homogenous type of winch but the truth is that they are actually very diverse. Even within Fulton’s range of winches, you can find a wide variety of sturdy and reliable options. The hand winches that we stock here at Super Winch Power range in power from a 600lb un-braked winch to a powerful 3200lb braked winch. Whatever type of hand winch you choose, it will serve you well for a long time.
Ideal for demanding applications
Hand winches are able to make extremely light work of even the most demanding applications. Just a few of the ways they can be used include lifting heavy vehicles such as cars and boats, hauling trailers, in conjunction with manual fork lifts or with manual hoists. Whatever the application, they will able to handle the load securely.
Quite a few hand winches, such as Fulton’s 2600lb and 3200lb braked hand winches, are available with two speeds, enabling you to switch things up. One fast speed can be used for quickly pulling in a load, while the other lower speed allows you to control the load more easily and be more precise with your pulling.
Not only are hand winches powerful and versatile, but they are durable tools too. Fulton’s un-braked hand winches are made of high-carbon steel. This gives them an impressive amount of strength, allowing them to take the strain with no problem at all. These winches are also finished with zinc, giving them excellent corrosion and rust resistance and making them perfect for using outdoors.
As hand winches are hand-operated rather than automated, it’s important that they are as safe to use as they can possibly be. That’s why many Fulton hand winches come with an automatic brake system. This system stops the winch when a certain amount of force is applied, enabling you to pull in your load safely. With this mechanism in place, you can have confidence that your hand winch will be able to get its job done safely.
