How to Choose the Best Winch for Your Needs
Winch lifting capabilities vary widely. It’s important to select a product that delivers sufficient power for your vehicle and applications.
An easy way to determine the right winch is to multiply your truck’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) by one and a half. For instance, if your vehicle’s GVWR is 10,000 pounds, choose a winch with a minimum load capacity of 15,000 pounds.
Other buying factors to consider include:
- Drivetrain: Available winch drivetrain types include spur, worm and planetary gear. A spur gear offers the fastest line speed but provides less stability.
- Motor: An electric winch can have either a permanent magnet or a series-wound motor. The latter may require vehicle modifications to ensure long-lasting performance.
- Drum: The drum is the source of a winch’s pulling power rating. Drums with larger working diameters have lower ratings.
- Cable or rope: A winch cable is more durable than synthetic rope. However, cables are heavier and more difficult to handle. They are also susceptible to rust.
- Remote control: Most modern winches come with a remote control feature, allowing you to operate them from a safe distance.
