Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Electric Winch BDW20156 Review

Today we're going to review part number BDW20156, this is the Bulldog wireless controller for the Bulldog 12 volt electric winches. This wireless control right here will let you power in or power out your winch and you can do this from any position within a hundred foot radius of the receiver box. This allows the operator to keep clear from any dangerous rigging and the operator can monitor your winching from different positions. It does eliminate the hand control cable that you might have to run over the hood or over different objects and it does extend the operating distance of your remote. The receiver, it comes with everything shown here, the hand controller, the wireless receiver, an assortment of connectors, and a set of detailed instructions. On the receiver part it comes with this quick connect plug and this will make a quick connection on popular truck winches. If the winch has a quick connect plug, you just plug this right in and you're ready to go.

It will also work on vehicles that do not have the quick connect plug and that's why they include this assortment of wire connectors so you can be able to connect this to those winches. Again, on the hand control, it has an on and off button right here, has an in button, an out button, and then there's a little red LED light that'll show you that it's operating. That should do it for the review on part number BDW20156, the Bulldog wireless controller for Bulldog electric 12 volt electric winches. .

Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller - Quick-Connect Plug - 100' - BDW20156

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (13 Customer Reviews)

- BDW20156

Actually used it to remote control the anchor winch on my boat. Easy to install and works great. Checking or changing the small batteries in the hand unit is pretty tricky though. Not easy to align them and the rubber seal.

It works great!
Mike - 09/22/2021

Still works great.

- BDW20156

It works perfectly. My only complaint is having to wait for the remote to turn on for serval seconds while holding the button down. Then same thing again to turn it off.

- BDW20156

This controller works amazingly well. Use it on my winch for loading my Drag Car in a 53 ft. trailer. Controllers range let's me be outside the back of the trailer to steer the car as I winch it in. What was a 2 person job I now can do myself!!

- BDW20156

Loved how easy it was to just plug into the top of the winch and boom it was done and connected in seconds

- BDW20156

Great addition to Bulldog winch. Installation is easy, there's a plug already on the wince, and it works great.

Money well spent! So much easier that using the cord. Be sure to keep a spare battery.
Herman D - 01/09/2020

- BDW20156

Everything arrived as ordered. The only thing that I thought was lacking was the installation documentation for a novice like me to follow. While the diagrams are adequate for someone with experience, I was totally lost as to how to proceed. I ended up taking the parts to an experienced technician for installation.

- BDW20156

Had to order new wireless set up because original on would not work after I tried change batteries the battery assembly fell apart Bad design

- BDW20156

The unit saves me several steps because it allows me to operate my winch remotely. It works great.

- BDW20156

Fast service and great product

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Winch Accessories and Parts

  • Wireless Remote that Works with Bulldog Winch BDW15019
    Part number # BDW15109 is a winch mount that fits Arctic Cat ATVS but is not an actual winch like what the controller # BDW20156 was designed to fit. Did you have a specific winch in mind.

  • Which Wireless Remote Fits Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW10029
    The Wireless Remote kit part # BDW20156 that you referenced is the correct kit for the Bulldog Winch # BDW10029 that you also referenced. The square plug of the remote does not connect directly to the round plug of the wired remote which is why the connector styles do not have to totally match.
    view full answer...
  • Which Wireless Remote is Compatible with Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch 10045
    The correct wireless remote kit for the Bulldog Winch # BDW10045 is the Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller - Quick-Connect Plug - 100' # BDW20156.

  • Replacement Remote Needed for the Bulldog Winch # BDW10041
    If you are looking to replace the remote that came with your Bulldog Winch # BDW10041 then you will want to go with part # BDW20080 which has the wire with the round plug on it. You can use the Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 if you would like though. The wireless functions will allow you to control the winch from up to 100' away and comes with a variety of connectors.

  • Will Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 Work with a Warn Winch
    Technically you could use the Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 with any winch since it comes with various connectors if the included plug does not match up to the winch or if the winch does not have a plug at all. Hardwiring would require knowing the functions of the wires on the winch so keep that in mind.

  • Battery Type for Bulldog Winch Remote kit part # BDW20156
    The battery type used in the Bulldog Winch Remote kit part # BDW20156 is a 123A.

  • Could Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 Work in Steel Box of Trailer
    Anything wireless prefers a direct line of sight between the remote and the transmitter, but if you are reasonably close to the transmitter of the Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 while in a steel box it will work as the reception of this is really good. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Is Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller Water Resistant
    The Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 is not water resistant on its own. However, you can use the neoprene cover that's made for it, part # BDW20194, that is water resistant.

  • How to Get Replacement Handheld Remote of Bulldog Winch Controller # BDW20156
    I checked with Bulldog Winch and they do not offer just the handheld remote of the Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 by itself since each remote has a unique frequency paired to the receiver. So if the handheld was lost you'd have to get the entire kit # BDW20156.

  • Recommended High Speed Remote Controlled Light Duty Electric Winch
    The Bulldog winch Powersports Series ATV winch, part # BDW15006 would check all the boxes you mentioned. The winch has a 2500 lb capacity and a fast line speed of 24 feet/minute. The wireless remote is sold separately as part # BDW20156, and would allow you to remotely play in/play out the load. I've linked to some product description videos for both the winch I recommended and its wireless remote.

    The Bulldog Winch Wireless Controller # BDW20156 you asked about is absolutely compatible and will work perfectly with the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW10030. The wireless remote is a really nice option to go with the winch because it allows you to use the winch at a distance of up to 100 feet away for the most convenience. In order to keep the remote safe and sound, I also recommend adding the Bulldog Winch Cover/Holder for Wireless Controller # BDW20194. I have added a link...

  • Recommended Winch To Load 2000-lb Raft On 14 X 8 Trailer

This has a 7/32-inch wire rope that is 55.7 ft long and this winch has a 1.8-hp motor. If you want a wireless remote you can use up to 45-ft away I recommend part # BDW20212.

  • Recommended Winch for Raising and Lowering Pop-Up Camper
    What a lot of people use to raise and lower their pop-up camper is an electric winch. For that I highly recommend the Bulldog Winch # BDW15006 because it has a load-holding brake and can power the load both in and out for raising or lowering your pop-up. The Bulldog # BDW15006 is also easy to use with its plug-in remote with a 20' lead, though you also have the option of going with a wireless remote, part # BDW20156 that has a 100' radius. I have added links to video reviews of both...

  • Recommended Winch Mount Brush Guard And Winch For 2018 Ram 2500
    Westin HDX Winch Mount Grille Guard with Punch Plate - Black Powder Coated Steel # 57-93555 is confirmed to fit your 2018 Ram 2500. The winch mounting tray accommodates most medium-frame winches with a capacity of 8,000 lbs to 12,500 lbs that are no more than 10-1/2" tall. For a winch that will fit this application I recommend Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch - Synthetic Rope - Hawse Fairlead - 8,000 lbs # BDW10044.

  • What Front Hitch and Winch Do You Recommend for My 2021 Ram 2500?
    For a front hitch on your 2021 Ram 2500, I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # C31089. The Curt receiver works on both diesel and non-diesel models and provides you with 500 pounds of vertical weight capacity/5,000 pounds of gross towing weight capacity. As far as installation, the Curt front hitch comes with all hardware required for a bolt-on installation without drilling.

  • Recommend Recovery Winch for a Kawasaki 3010 Mule Trans 4x4 Diesel
    I have the perfect option that will allow you to pull your Kawasaki 3010 Mule Trans 4x4 Diesel up a 40 degree incline. As you have identified the ATV weighing up to 1,400 lbs. you will want a winch with a line pull strength of 3,500 lbs. at minimum to account for the incline. For this, I recommend using the Bulldog Winch Custom-Fit Steel Winch Mount part # BDW15121 in addition to the Bulldog Winch Utility Winch part # BDW10004. This winch has a 1.87 hp motor with a 85' long steel cable...

  • Lightest Winch With 15,000 lb Capacity
    The 15,000 lb Bulldog Winch # BDW10012 is heavier than the 12,000 lb winch because it has larger, heavier components - a larger motor, longer, thicker and heavier wire rope, a bigger hook, etc. It's just a big ol' winch comparatively. The lightest winch with at least a 15,000 lb capacity is 77 lbs, the Bulldog Winch Alpha Series Off-Road Winch - Synthetic Rope - Hawse Fairlead - 15,000 lbs # BDW10048. Both Bulldog Winch Alpha Series winches also have a wireless remote available,...

  • What Electric Motor Do You Recommend to Use with a 2006 Flagstaff Pop Up Camper?
    The electric motor that I recommend for your 2006 Flagstaff pop up camper is the Bulldog Winch Powersports Series ATV Winch - Wire Rope # BDW15006. The Powersports Series comes with an automatic, mechanical brake that holds 100 percent of the load while minimizing winch creep. Also, you have the option of adding a wireless remote with part # BDW20156 that has a 100-foot radius. With the Powersports Series, you get both the safety and the ease of use you are looking for.

  • Adding a Winch to a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with Base Plate Kit
    There is not a particular winch designated to work with the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5 on your 2019 Rubicon JLU with factory steel bumper. That being said, a winch that mounts on the top side of your bumper is probably the safest route to go for compatibility. The Bulldog Winch Standard Series Off-Road Winch # BDW10042 will be a great option for that, if you do not already have winch mounting points on your bumper you will want to use the Bulldog Winch Universal...
