What is a wire rope winch?

A wire rope winch is a device which simply winds up wire rope cable whilst lifting/pulling the load attached. Manual and powered varieties are available.

Which wire rope winch is easiest to use?

A powered winch is much easier to use than a manual winch. They can be powered by electricity or a pneumatic air supply (model depending) They can lift and pull much heavier loads at the touch of a button with more precision. A manual winch requires some physical effort to wind the lever which rotates the drum and thus the cable.

Manual Vs Powered winch?

Manual winches are usually the cheaper option and take up less room, however physical strength is required to rotate the lever, thus rope & load. Electric winches and air powered winches handle heavier loads much more quickly due to the power advantage, they are therefore easier to use, however they are probably more costly and take up more room so consider all options carefully.
