In this second video in our Rotator Rumble Series, our own Tom Luciano demonstrates some helpful techniques to maximize your rotator recovery capabilities while winching a heavy load from the side of your rotator.
One of the most important preparations a tow truck operator can do, is to make sure the wire rope on their recovery winch is tightly wrapped on the winch drum. This process is referred to as "power wrapping".
