How Do Winches Work? 

In an air winch, pressurised air is fed through an air line from the compressor into the motor drive. Once initiated, the drive motor will turn the cable drum, supplying steady, powerful force for raising or lowering an attached load. 

Air winches are often used in manufacturing facilities, where they are used to lift and lower large assemblies. You can tell when an air winch is being used by the sound that it creates. All of that extreme air pressure creates a persistent whistling noise. 

These winches are useful for extreme, heavy-duty applications – and they offer a relatively inexpensive alternative than other high-powered winches.
