A Winch, which is a kind of towing equipment, is primarily used to tow other vehicles when they are stuck in ditches, large snow mounds, sand or mud. It can also be used to pull the vehicle to which it is mounted, when it is stuck. The winch is usually attached to the front or rear bumpers of trailers, off-road and all-terrain automobiles. It is operated either manually or by means of an electric motor or battery. Some vehicles use the car's battery to power the winch while some have a dedicated battery to supply. The winch consists of a drum which has rope or cable reeled around it. The cable is connected to large stationary bodies or other automobiles, to haul the stuck vehicle. Winches can be chosen depending on the weight of the vehicle, as there are various kinds of winches available for different weight limits. The types of winches include electrical, mechanical drum, mechanical capstan and hydraulic drum.
