1. The traction force of a winch is determined by pounds, and can be converted into tons or kilograms by means of conversions. The best choice of the winch pounds high, because of the weight of the vehicle were often far higher than the daily weight. Do not drag the object beyond the traction of the capstan.
2. The number of turns on the reel of the capstan cable is smaller, and the tension of the outer ring is smaller. A long capstan can reduce the number of winding laps to increase traction on the outer ring. The same winch uses shorter steel cables, the longer the outer ring of the steel cable, the greater traction.
