A winch is a device with a basic task. Actually, there are two tasks – bringing things in and letting things out using a cable or rope.

It’s also necessary to have a way to rotate this spool or cylinder, which varies depending on the type of winch being used.

Operation also depends on stopping or slowing the spool, which is accomplished by a mechanical or solenoid brake.
