mooring winches, anchor handling and towing winches, or ship launchuse winches. Different types of winches
are available in the market like electric or hydraulic winches and you can choose any winch according to your
Electric winches use the battery of a vehicle as a power source whereas Hydraulic winches are powered by a
vehicle's power steering pumps. It is imperative to check the fluid and test the power steering pressure to get
maximum performance from the hydraulic winch. Hydraulic winches are different from electric ones as they can
carry very heavy load in comparison to the other. Also, they are suitable for projects where continuous winch
performance is required.
There are several advantages of using a hydraulic winch. They are durable and can easily carry very heavy loads.

endlessly as long as the engine is running. Hydraulic winches are perfect, especially during ship launching and
vessel upgrading tasks, when the tide situation is vital for project operation and the winch should work
consistently for longer time.
Hydraulic winches use fluid power to work and requires 20 to 30% more electric power as compared to electric
winch for its performance. They are the perfect choice for vessels that have larger generator sets for crane loads.
In marine applications, the vessel size determines the type of winch to be used. A hydraulic winch is the best for
larger vessels due to the size and weight of the hydraulic system equipment.
