Although the simple definition of a winch is a mechanical device that is used to wind up a rope or cable, it generally consists of a spool that is sometimes referred to as a winch drum, attached to a crank. Winches used in heavy lifting industries can have sophisticated gear assemblies that are powered by hydraulic, pneumatic, or combustible engine drives. In some cases, operations will also need a winch that includes a mechanical brake or ratchet that prevents the rope from unwinding. Winches are often used to tow boats or cars, and may also be used to move stage equipment. Bishop Lifting stocks and supplies a wide variety of winches to be used in multiple applications.
The versatility of winches allows them to be used in a multitude of applications, including setting up rigs, pulling pipe, moving industrial material, positioning objects on mast towers, raising telecommunication towers, moving materials for wind tower turbines, and a host of other uses.
