When Should I Use an Air Winch?

Air winches can fit into spaces and move materials in areas that are unreachable by crane. They are also suitable for areas where fire hazards exist. They have no electrical parts to cause a shock risk, and are fueled by air instead of flammable fuel. Air motors cannot burn out, and can be stalled for long periods without damage. This makes air winches ideal for suspending and tensioning materials. Despite these inherent safety features, they can still pose hazards if safety procedures are not followed properly.
