Winch Survey

Winch SurveyWhether you’re a scrapper or in the market for a new truck winch, we have you covered. They are necessary when hauling larger loads or loading up cars. In a scrapper’s world, winches are used to haul cars, in addition to other equipment or vehicles. They can save you a lot of time and effort if you are someone who is consistently scrapping large items or cars, but before you go ahead and buy one, take a second to think about how much use you would really get out of it, not to mention having the proper mount/bumper on your vehicle (this would also require having a vehicle worthy of pulling such a heavy load). So without further ado, here are the top two winches recommended by scrappers such as yourself.
