DID YOU KNOW? About Winches

3-BAR: Designed for easy strap insertion during snow and ice conditions. Prevents the mandrel from freezing up.
PORTABLE: Versatile and meant for temporary installation, and can be placed along the trailer side frame.
SPOOL: Designed to reduce strap wear, spool discs guide and store the webbing into a single roll up to 30'.
STANDARD DOUBLE CAP: Incremental adjustment from both sides of the winch allows for clearance applications.
SLIDERS: Allow for easy positioning in the track, but lock into place when tension is applied to the strap. For use with Ancra track 42357-11, 42357-21, 49242-10-120 or equivalent.

7MM: Reduces Weight per Winch by 2 lbs. on Average. Lighter weight reduces fuel expenses and allows for a greater pay load. Heat treated material maintains strength.
RATCHETING WINCHES:  Faster and more convenient than traditional winches. Reduces the tensioning time by 33%. Also, reduces risk of winch bar rollover.
X-TREME WINCHES: To give your winches a longer working life, specify X-Treme Zinc for better corrosion protection than zinc-plated, paint or powder coated finishes.

 

WINCH OPERATION & MAINTENANCE

MAINTENANCE: Clean and lubricate latch pawl pivot as needed to maintain a free moving latch pawl. Use rust inhibiting light oil. DO NOT use caustic or acid based cleaners on winches.

INSPECT: Inspect before use for damage and proper working condition. Damaged or inoperable winches shall be removed from service.

WEB WINCHES: A minimum 12 inches of webbing shall be inserted through web slot (pull excess web through). After tensioning there shall be 2 to 4 wraps on mandrel. Less wraps result in slippage and more wraps put added strain on winch. Do not use webbing binders over sharp edges, when cut, or when webbing or hardware is damaged.

CABLE WINCHES: Refer to cable manufacturer for WLL of cable. Twist an eye in end of cable with at least 2 feet of loose tail. Place eye over pin on mandrel; tighten winch, wrapping cable over tail end at least 4 times.

PORTABLE WINCHES: DO NOT over tighten set screws. They need to be tight enough to position winch while tension is being applied. DO NOT attach portable winches to rub rails. Remove portable winches when not in use and store in a dry location

TENSION and RELEASE: Operator must make sure their footing is secure and load is stable before tensioning or releasing tie down. Use a winch bar inserted through both sides of the mandrel cap.

                        

CHAIN LOAD BINDERS
All traditional chain load binders are constructed of drop forged steel for strength and durability and were designed to be used with transport chain. They are available in traditional Lever, Recoilless and Ratcheting models, and are finished in a red E-coat paint. They meet or exceed WSTDA T-6 standards.

WARNING: Failure to follow all instructions may result in serious personal injury, property damage and loss of life. Observe the working load limits as noted below and on tags to determine the number of tie downs and hardware required under federal D.O.T. FMCSA 40 CFR Parts 392-393. Use extreme caution when tensioning load binders to ensure chain links are seated securely in the hook before release tension on the load binder.

Safety factors

It doesn’t take a numbers person to appreciate the built-in safety factor of reputable products. At Ancra, we use our own in-house testing facilities as well as independent sources to test and retest our securement products. It’s a process that begins with initial design concepts and continues through the final manufacturing. It doesn’t end there. We constantly spot test finished products to make sure they meet quality cargo control standards day after day. We even test and evaluate products that have been in service for signs of corrosion and fatigue. When you see the working load limits permanently marked on Ancra winches, you can be sure those numbers will be met, and more.

In-service record
There’s a third way we ensure safety in numbers. Serving the trucking industry for decades we have hundreds of thousands of reliable products working hard everyday. Truckers know what’s good.

The strength of Ancra Ratchet Strap Assemblies reflects the strength of Ancra’s reputation in the Transportation Industry.

Our heavy-duty, weather resistant straps and solid, reliable hardware have met the demands of the road for more than

40 years. Our straps are stringently tested for strength and durability in order to bear the Ancra name.


SLINGS

Trust Ancra’s slings for your lifting and rigging needs. Our durable polyester round slings and eye to eye web slings come in a full range of lengths and widths for your application.

Working Load Limit (WLL): The maximum load a component or assembly should be subjected to during routine use.

Rated Load Capacity: Ratings are generally established and/or regulated by industry or legislative standards and may vary from industry to industry. The working load limit rating (WLL) is established by Federal DOT Standards at 1/3 of the Breaking Strength of the assembly. Note: All strengths referenced in this brochure unless noted, are based on a straight pull application.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is the owner’s and user’s responsibility to determine suitability of a product for any particular use. Check all applicable industry, trade association, federal, state and local regulations. Read all operating instructions and warnings carefully. All ratings shown in this catalog are based on the product being new, and used in normal environmental conditions. Special consideration must be given to item selection when unusual conditions can be expected. Particular caution should be exercised to avoid exposing the product to sharp edges, acids, alkalis and temperatures above 194°F. Products are subjected to age, wear, and deterioration, all of which cause a reduction in the product’s working load limit. We recommend that all products be regularly inspected. Any worn, deformed, misused or overloaded products should be replaced.

CAUTION! The component with the lowest working load capacity in the entire restraint system will determine its strength. Each component of the entire system plays an important part in restraining cargo. It is important that tie downs be attached to anchorage that are of sufficient strength to properly secure the load. For example, if one anchors a standard web binder assembly with a rated WLL o 5,000 lbs. to a device with a WLL of 1,000 lbs., then that system is only as good as the anchorage and would be limited to a 1,000 lbs. capacity WLL.
