A winch dampener or recovery dampener is an essential item for any four wheel drive enthusiast that plans to use a cable winch during recovery. While cable winches have very large breaking capacities, the unlikely situation of a cable snapping during recovery is still a possibility and should be prepared for. A winch dampener is designed to absorb the energy from a cable if it were to snap, thus reducing recoil and further preventing the likelihood of harm to any user. As a part of common sense, it is also worthwhile ensuring users are well and truly clear of the area surrounding the cable.
