Hydraulic Pulling Winch

Hydraulic pulling winch is designed for heavy duty winching applications on land and sea. It offers the most versatility and reliability for pulling operations.

Applications: the hydraulic cable pulling winches are widely found in mining industry, construction sites, towing and recovery applications, oil & gas. They are meant to increase efficiency and productivity on the job.

Advantages: compact structure, ideal for heavy duty work, more accurate in control and movement, constant and durable performance throughout the job.

However, compared to electric powered winch, the hydraulic system requires additional equipment to be installed with, such as hydraulic pump, pipes and fittings. As a result, it needs more maintenance care.

Selection Guide of A Horizontal Pulling Winch Machine

With so many different types and models of winches out there, you need to consider a few things when buying a winch for pulling. Generally, the selection of a heavy pull winch is governed by several main parameters, including load capacity, drum capacity, power source, type of transmission and additional equipment.

1. Load capacity or pulling force

Factors such as flat pull, diagonal pull, with track, and different slope angles will affect the calculation of pull force.

If you don’t know how to calculate the winch pulling force, please feel free to consult Aicrane winch professionals!

2. Drum capacity

Since drum is the center part of the winch system, it is of great importance to determine a proper size and capacity for the drum.

The drum capacity can be governed by two dimensions, width and diameter.

If you require a certain drum capacity,  you can check if the type of winch selected can be used. If not, you can consider to lengthen its diameter or look at other models of winches.

3. Power source

Two main types of power source can be used with your winch: electric and hydraulic.

The selection of power can be determined by existing infrastructure or technical preference. Beside, the motive power can be selected according to its advantages and disadvantages.

4. Type of transmission

In the selection of transmission, the most importance issue you need to consider is how much torque has it to transmit.

The drum diameter will influence the gearbox selection. For example, if you need to lengthen the drum diameter, it may require a stronger gearbox.

As a professional manufacturer of winch, the transmission used in our winch machine is aimed to provide maximum in durability, reliability and suitability.

5. Additional equipment

You may need additional equipment to improve the winch performance. We offer a range of winch options to make sure you end up with the perfect pulling winch system:

  • Band brake – it is an extra brake fitted on the drum. The most common use of it is for marine winches, such as anchor winch and mooring winch.
  • Clutch – winch with clutch is usually used for pulling purposes. According to the size of winch, you can choose a claw or multi pin clutch.
  • Pressure roller – by pushing slack rope to drum, it helps to wind the rope better on the drum.
  • Grooved drum – it is designed to improve rope spooling on the drum.
  • Drum guard – it is used to protect the user.
  • Spooler – it guides the rope onto drum to improve spooling of the wire.
  • Emergency crank – in the event of power blackout, it allows for moving of the load.

What Is A Pulling Winch?

Pulling winch is a small and light winch device that uses a drum to wind steel wire rope to pull heavy objects. There are two types of pulling winches: electric and hydraulic power winch.

What Is A Pulling Winch Used For?

Pulling winch can be used to pull various loads horizontally and diagonally:

  • Pulling heavy materials during construction
  • Long-distance traction of concrete, steel structure, steel cable, etc.
  • Installation and disassembly of mechanical equipment
  • Pulling large ships out of the water
Does A Winch Have A Brake?
The winch must be equipped with at least one brake. The braking torque of the brake should be greater than 1.5 times the static torque at the rated tension of the wire rope. The brake controlled by power must be normally closed.
How Much Should A Winch Pull?

How do you calculate a winch line pull? Here is an example of a 10 ton winch:

According to the φ28 steel wire rope quality certificate: the total measured breaking force of a single-strand φ28 steel wire rope is 457.66 kN, the minimum breaking force is: 457.66÷9.8×0.82=38.29(t).

Lifting weight of a 10t winch: Q=148.2÷2+0.155+3=77.255t

Calculation coefficient of pulling force of pulley block wire rope running head: f0= fn-1(f-1)/( fn-1)

=1.0417-1(1.04-1)/( 1.0417-1)


The traction force of the winch wire rope is F=f0KQ



K is the dynamic coefficient

f is the drag coefficient of the pulley

When the stator rises to 9.5m, the angle between the traction wire rope and the pulley block wire rope is:


Then the safety factor of φ28 steel wire rope is: 457.66÷9.8÷(6.72÷cos22.60)=6.42

Load rate of 10t winch: 6.95÷cos22.60÷10=75.3%.

Pulling Winch vs. Lifting Winch, What’s The Difference?

The winch can either lift or pull a load by means of rope. Some winches can be designed to lift and pull heavy loads and some are designed just to perform pulling function.

  • The winch designed for pulling delivers horizontal load movement. In the design of such winch machine, you need to calculate the line pull. The winch for pulling can be fitted with clutch.
  • The lifting winches are meant for lifting vertically. They are commonly designed for on land uses.

The pulling or lifting winch is designed for different purposes. Therefore, when selecting a winch product, please consider the task at hand. For example, what is the winch used for? Where will the winch be used? Knowing the purpose of the winch will help you determine the equipment that is suitable for your application.

Should Winch Pull From Top or Bottom?

The direction of the winch wire rope is generally horizontal, and the rope is discharged from the bottom of the drum, so that a relatively small tipping moment can be generated.

However, the rope can also be taken out from other directions. At this time, when the wire rope is inclined, an upward component force will inevitably be generated, which will change the stress state of the anchor bolt. In this case, the specific data of anchor bolt anchoring should be given in the instructions for use.

How Do You Maintain A Winch?

Regular inspection – The inspection cycle should be determined according to the degree of heavy work of the winch and the harsh environment, but not less than once a month. The inspection includes the following items:

  • Any damage and destruction that can be observed during operation and may occur during the inspection period.
  • The working performance of the winch and whether the control mechanisms are in good working conditions.
  • Check all safety protection devices.
  • Check the wear and deformation of each part, especially pay attention to the wear of the wire rope and the fixing of the end.

Periodic inspection – The inspection period should be determined according to the heavy workload and harsh environment, but not less than once a year. Periodic inspections should be recorded and included in the equipment files. The inspection content includes the following items:

  • Wear, deformation, cracks, and corrosion of parts.
  • Connection of bolts and rivets.
  • Whether electrical equipment such as controllers, contactors, switches, buttons, etc. have pitting or abrasion.

Notes When Maintaining:

  • Before maintenance, cut off the main power supply and hang maintenance signs.
  • All joysticks should be set to the zero position before maintenance.
  • The wire rope pulling winch can only be used after all the guards are installed, the safety devices are back to work, and the maintenance equipment is removed.
