Q: What maintenance is required?
A little preventative maintenance will ensure a long winch life. You should regularly lubricate all grease points, inspect all bolts, all electrical connections (even at the battery) and cable. Check to ensure there is no worn coatings or corrosion on electrical connections, and that all connections are tight. Check for wear, flat spots and broken strands on your wire rope. Damaged or worn cable should be replaced.
Q:How much pulling power do I require?
You need a winch to be powerful enough to pull your vehicle while overcoming the added resistance caused by an obstacle, moving water, mud, snow or sand on a steep hill. Choose a winch with a maximum line pull of at least 1.5 times greater than the gross vehicle weight.
Q. Can I increase the line speed of my worm gear winch?
Yes, but you will lose about half of your pulling power. On electric winches, a simple exchange of gears can provide up to a 50% line.
