Hydraulic Winch

Hydraulic winch is especially designed for heavy-duty lifting, pulling and towing operations. It is a good choice when an electric winch machine cannot match your operating and performance conditions. Powered by a hydraulic system, this type of winch has more strength than an electric power winch, thus it is ideal for the most demanding tasks in construction, mining and marine. Our winches can be designed and built into any size and form to meet your application demands.

The Common Applications of Hydraulic Power Winch

This heavy duty winch uses hydraulic pressure generated by the pump to control the drum rotation. The rope on the drum will spool in or out as the direction of drum rotation changes. The winch machine supplied by our company is mainly used to perform lifting, pulling and towing job in a variety of fields and sectors.

  • It can be used in construction and installation sites to lift and move heavy loads.
  • It can be employed in factories for placement and movement of heavy equipment.
  • It can be applied in mining areas to handle coal and metal ores.
  • It can be installed on boats and ships for the intention of anchoring, mooring and towing.
  • It can be used in oil and gas for the movement of products and tools.

Basic Components of Winch Machine

This form of power winch is mainly composed of hydraulic motor, drum, gear box and control valve. The gear, hydraulic motor and brakes constitute a complete driving unit. Compared to the electric winch, the installation of hydraulic system is somewhat tricky since it requires additional equipment, such as pipes and fittings. And also it needs more maintenance care.

Winch options:

  • Worm gear transmission or planetary transmission
  • Single or double drum
  • Grooved drum for better rope spooling on the drum
  • Drum guard
  • Drum pressure roller for uniform winding
  • Limit switches
  • Emergency hand crank
  • Proportional control valves or hydraulic power packs

Winch Hydraulic System Design

Each hydraulic system design is unique to your specific application, but the basic concept of hydraulic system is the same. That is, the force is transmitted from one point to another by using an incompressible fluid. The pump and control valves are common components of hydraulic system.


The design of hydraulic motor is highly related to pump. In the selection of hydraulic pump, there are two main factors you need to consider. First, the pump you choose should deliver proper flow at any required engine speed. Second, make sure you select the proper rotation.

Directional control valves

It is the most common control used with your winch. The directional control valve has two main option, hydraulic or electric remote control with hand lever. The valve control is also fitted with open center spool which can be spring returned to neutral. It is a safety design. Once the operator’ hand leaves the valve lever, the winch will stop running.

It’s Time to Invest in A Powerful Hydraulic System

Both hydraulic and electric winches are substantial parts of winch products. Each type of winch has its own pros and cons with respect to strength, working environment, durability and ease of use. Here comes a question, how do you know you should utilize a hydraulic system. First of all, when there is already a source of hydraulic power, the hydraulic system can be the first choice. Second, since the cable winch can deliver extremely high forces, it is the best option for the most daunting tasks. Third, the hydraulic system is a better choice for mobile applications. Finally, the compact winch can be very sturdy and reliable. That’s why it is more often found in both onshore and offshore applications.

In spite of great strength and durability, there are some downsides associated to the winch. One the one hand, it is more expensive than the electric type winch. On the other hand, it requires more maintenance care since the lines, pipes and filters all need to be checked, changed and cleaned regularly. And also the hydraulics can be very noisy.

After knowing these pros and cons of this power winch, you can make a decision now. If you have any question, consult our experts online.
