The Wire Rope Pulling Winch is a lightweight and portable manual traction device characterized by its compact structure, minimal weight, and stable performance. Its operating principle involves two pairs of smoothly self-locking clamps, resembling steel claws, alternatingly gripping the wire rope to perform linear reciprocating motion, thereby achieving traction operations.

This machine is capable of performing traction, winching, lifting, and other tasks in various engineering projects. Apart from its usage in horizontal and vertical directions, it can also operate in slopes, uneven terrains, narrow lanes, and tortuous workspaces, and can be used in any location, including environments without power sources. Commonly utilized on construction sites, the traction machine serves as a tool for loading and unloading, installing small equipment, components, and pipelines.

The traction machine is primarily rated for lifting capacities of 800 kilograms, 1600 kilograms, 3200 kilograms, and 5400 kilograms.

After each operational session with the Wire Rope Pulling Winch, it is essential to wipe off any mud, dust, or grease adhering to the loose end of the wire rope, release the clamp jaws, extract the rope, coil it neatly on a collection rack, and clean the entire length of the rope. The wire rope should be stored in a dry place to prevent corrosion. It is recommended to perform at least four maintenance checks on the traction machine annually. If the internal mechanism becomes contaminated with mud, cement, or other debris, it can be rinsed with clean water followed by a diesel wash.
