For decades, hardcore Jeepers have been arguing about which type of winch is best, hydraulic or electric. Duty cycle is the biggest difference between the two. Hydraulic motors are powered by the steering pump. As long as the engine is running, so is your winch. An electric winch, on the other hand, is powered by the electrical system. It doesn’t have the power for continuous use, but it provides several minutes of pulling power on a dead engine.
Electrical motors require little to no maintenance if they are cared for correctly. This is a huge advantage. Sun and other elements degrade components like the motor, rope or cable and control unit, so keep them protected from the elements. They do require a lot of energy. On a healthy battery, they function for up to five minutes. Hydraulic winches cost more and are not as easy to install, but they have a 100-percent duty cycle and can be fully submerged. If the engine is running, these bad boys can get you out of a tough spot all day.
