Video Transcript for Superwinch S5500 Roller Hawse Fairlead Winch Review

Today, we are going to be taking a look at the super winch s5500 winch. Part number SW1455200. The s5500 trailer winch is the ideal solution for getting your wheel equipment like, your ATV or UTV or in this case our golf cart onto our trailer. It has an aluminum free-spool clutch lever that allows us to pull the cable out freely to help save our wear and tear on our winch engine and our power source. When free-spooling it up it has a hand savor strap which when used in conjunction to gloves can really save your hands from getting damaged. The hook itself is made out of a heavy gauged steel, while the cable is 60 foot long and made out of a heavy construction braided steel. The spool is protected by removable dust cover to help keep out debris and any other elements.

It features a 30 foot remote with an in and out rocker switch so it can stand at a safe distance and easily load up our wheeled equipment. It features a roller haul spare lead which is going to help protect your cable and reduce friction when your pulling up your wheeled equipment on to your trailer. It has a 3.6 horsepower permanent magnet sealed motor with a three stage gear box giving it rated line pull of 5500 pounds. It comes with all the wiring you need to get it hooked up to your power source. Its dimensions are about 19 inches long, 5 3/4 wide, and 5 3/4 tall. It also features a limited lifetime warranty. Now we're just about ready to start winching it up.

Now its always good to be safe, make sure either your trailer is hooked up to your vehicle, and that you keep it a safe distance. So lets hook the switch on our freezable clutch, we'll grab our hand saver strap, and pull it out. Were going to bring it down to our shackle, which we've got used in conjunction with our golf cart here today. If you don't have a shackle you can find wide variety of sizes of those at The one we are using today is part GS06.

So we'll take our hook, well clip it onto the shackle. You'll notice that the gate is going to keep it from sliding off. Lets go ahead and release our clutch lever down, now we're all set. Now lets go ahead and press our in button on our rocker switch and lets start winching it up. Now if you'd like to double the rated pull line of your winch, you could pick up the heavy duty winch pulley block, and that's going to be part number SW7750A. The cable simply goes around the pulley and back to an anchor point allowing it to double the capacity. Now the winch could also be used to help you unload your wheeled equipment, lets go ahead and do that now.

And that is going to complete out look at the Super Winch SW5500, part number SW1455200.

- SW1455200

by: Rick N.07/25/2016

I've been dealing with etrailer for a number of years. The service and prices are the best. I just purchased the S5000 Superwinch for my race car trailer to replace the 16 year old Superwinch. WOW! what a difference. Also it fit in the old blot mounting holes. This bad boy is super quiet when compared to the old one and it pulls my car on without any drama. Not cheap but I'd recommend this item to anyone looking for a really good winch with this capacity. 276090

We deal in Pace American, Haulmark, Rance, Liberty and Imperial trailer brands and frequently install winches. We normally use the S5000 Superwinch but it wasn't available so ordered the S5500. Its more powerful but doesn't have the tensioner to keep the spool from spinning freely which causes the cable to bunch up on spool. Still a good value. 286357

Ask the Experts about this Superwinch Electric Winch
Do you have a question about this Electric Winch?

  • Need An Electric Winch To Pull Vehicles Up On A 22 Foot Car Hauler
  • The SuperWinch LT2000 Electric Utility Winch, part # 1220210, you have referenced will only have a rated line pull of 2,000 lbs. The rated line pull of 2,000 lbs. will pull a rolling load of 10,050 lbs. up a 6 degree incline, but as the incline increases, the rolling load capacity will decrease. Also, those loads are based on the just one layer of wire wrapped around the drum. Each additional layer of wire (when the winch wire is laid on top of itself) reduces the winchs pulling capacity...

  • Recommendation for an Electric Winch to Pull a 28 Foot 7,000 lb Boat Onto a Trailer
  • When winching your boat onto a trailer, a common ratio for determining your winch load capacity is 2 to 1. For example, a 7000lb boat would require a 3500lb winch. There are other factors, however, that will determine the appropriate winch size for your purposes. The ratio can be stretched to 3 to 1 in instances when the trailer in use has high-quality rollers and is most commonly used on ramps where boats float most of the way onto the trailer. In contrast, using a boat trailer that...

  • Electric Winch Recommendaton for a PJ618 10,000 Pound Utility Trailer with 16 Ft Deck and 2 Ft Dove
  • Congratulations on your new trailer! We have a chart on our Finding the Right Electric Winch page (see link) that shows how to select the proper winch for your trailer. You will need to know how much the vehicles you will be towing will weigh and you will need to purchase a winch with enough capacity to pull the vehicle up the incline and onto the trailer. We recommend using a winch with a line pull capacity equal to that of the load being moved so that if the incline (resistance) is...

  • Winch Recommendation For a Utility Trailer Hauling a Dune Buggy
  • Yes, you should be able to winch your 1,100 Lb dune buggy onto your trailer with the Superwinch LT2000 Electric Utility Winch, item # 1220210, as long as the dune buggy is rolling. If the load became static, 2 or more flat tires or a locked wheel, then a larger winch would be required. If this is a possibility I would recommend the Superwinch S5500 Winch # SW1455200, for your application because of its higher line pull capacity. Wiring the winch from the front of the vehicle will require...

  • Winch, Wiring Kit and Mounting Recommendation for Installing Superwinch in Utility Trailer
  • For a wiring kit to install the Superwinch part # SW1455200 in your trailer you will need the part # SW1520. This comes with heavy enough gauge wire to power the winch. The 7-way at the rear of your vehicle could not handle the load required for this winch. You would need to secure the winch somehow to the frame of your trailer and not just the floorboards. Typically people use a hitch tube like part # E-9 and have it welded to the trailer frame and then use a hitch plate like part...

  • How to Charge an S5000 Winch Battery on an Enclosed Trailer
  • You could definitely use the 12v power lead on your 7-Way plug to maintain the S5000 winch battery. When your 7-Way was installed, the power lead wire, which is usually black or red, should have had a 40amp circuit breaker installed, so you should not need additional fuses. This would be true especially if the connector was installed at the factory. Starting your truck would not overload the wiring as long as it is protected by a fuse or circuit breaker. If you find that the...

  • Recommend Winch To Pull 1955 Chevrolet Bel-Air Onto a Trailer
  • With the weight of the car plus the incline up the trailer, I would recommend going with a higher capacity winch. Even though your 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air is a rolling load, the incline on the trailer will make for more resistance. I would recommend going with a higher capacity winch like the Superwinch S5500 Electric Trailer Winch, part # SW1455200, which has a 5,500 lb capacity. For powering part # SW1455200 you can either connect the winch to a battery on the trailer or use Trailer...
