What is winching
Winching is a popular roadside assistance service that involves pulling a vehicle out of a precarious situation with the help of a motorized axle and a strong cable. The position of the cable’s hook can be determined by several variables, including how open your vehicle’s undercarriage is in its current state and the condition of your vehicle. After the cable has been secured to the vehicle, an electric or hydraulic motor can pull the cable towards the truck, securely and slowly pulling the vehicle out of the snowbank, ditch, or other dangerous situation.
