Driving is one of the most freeing activities one can take part in. When you are behind the wheel of the car you feel like you can go anywhere. Often, as long as you have gas it feels like you can go anywhere. Taking weekend trips to the countryside you can enjoy all that beautiful landscape and fresh air. However sometimes that feeling of independence can overtake and we can make a decision in false hope. Sometimes we take a road that isn’t travelled and find the wheels of our vehicle stuck in mud.
One of the most obvious signs that you need a winch out is when your tires are spinning. When your tires are in mud or slush or very loose sand, these are times that it is too difficult for the wheel to get traction on a surface like that. This happens often. The best thing is to not panic and make sure you are in control. When you need a winch out calling a tow truck company is an easy fix and not one to ever be embarrassed about. We do winch outs all the time, and we do them because people are always driving down roads they think their car can take, but in reality they cannot.
What is a Winch Out?
A winch out is pulling the tire out of these situations where the tire cannot get traction. When a tire is in earth that is too loose or watery rather then moving forward the wheel will spin. This causes the wheel to dig itself down and make it more difficult to drive out. A winch out places material around the wheel that the wheel can grip on and move forward getting itself out of the sticky situation. This can take some skill in placement of the material, knowing which material is best, and in actually maneuvering the vehicle with the right amount of pressure on the gas peddle. Sometimes there is some pushing needed.
