Video Transcript for Curt Electric Winch C31009 Review

Today we're going to review part number C31009. This is the Curt trailer hitch electric winch mount plate with the handle assembly. This mount plate is designed to fit onto a 2" trailer hitch receiver. It does have a hollow shank with the three different holes. This will allow you to mount the shank to the position on your vehicle that will allow clearance for the winch. It is made of a durable black powder-coat finish, which will resist corrosion.

On the handles it does have two rubber-grip handles on it. The front does bend up, and it does have the roller fairlead mounting points right here. This updated design will accommodate some of the newest roller fairleads. This is a dual-purpose handle assembly. In other words, you can use it to pick it up and move it to either the front or the back of the vehicle, or to another vehicle.

And the way the handles are designed, with the handles bowed out in front of the mount plate, it will help also to protect it from any damage to the winch itself. It is a universal design, which will support most major winch models. The overall plate dimensions on this are going to be 13" long, and the width on it is going to be 8-1/4". The plate that it's made out of is a 1/4"-thick steel. I did want to mention, it does come with two sets of mounting holes on the mount plate, as you can see here.

The handles are bolted onto the outer set of four holes, and there's an inner set of four holes. They do have the standard mounting hole facing that you find on a lot of the winches. The outer holes are 10" from center to center by 4-1/2". So you can use this to mount the winch onto. If you do want to use the handles you can use that also.

The handles would mount under your winch. Now the inner set of circles, or the mounting holes, the inner second set will measure 6-1/2" center to center, you can see there, and also 4-1/2". And that is the two most common mounting hole patterns on the winches today. Now the roller fairlead mounting holes right up here, they are elongated. They will accept a 10" on-center mounting hole pattern. And the actual center to center of it is 10-1/2". Now the distance on these three holes on the shank, if you measure from this back plate, the hitch mount plate, the measurement from the mount plate to the first hole is going to be 4-1/2", to the next hole is 6-1/2", and to the last hole is 8-1/2". And that should do it for the review on part number C31009, the Curt trailer hitch electric winch mount plate with the handle assembly.

The hitch is working out fine,it's what you need up in the Badlands. See Attachment as picked up on the trail Cam. I can hook it on to the rear hitch if needed also. Steve 300944

The plate fit my 2018 Nissan titan perfect i just need to fit the winch on it now. 522277

Simple to assemble. Works great. 425738

- C31009

I love this trailer hitch winch mount. Easy on and easy off. I slipped it on for a couple of days for the recent ice storm. It literally took me less than 5 minutes to slip the mount into the receiver and hook up the power cable. I have both a front hitch and rear hitch with power running to each, so I can swap easily from front to back, whichever location is best for the situation. I simply can't say enough how happy I am with my setup and how much I love it. 335216

Still love this setup and the convenience. No issues. No rust of anything else to complain about.

This winch plate fit my winch perfectly. The handles are very sturdy. This will make moving my winch from truck to trailer a snap. 180958

Even the hardware came with except the plate to the bumper attachment.When i ordered the plate the hard ware was in the winch box order.I had no idea. Very cool. 178525

- C31009

Great service, very good value, more then I expected! 27527

- C31009

You'll be impressed when you open up this item. Very well made, quarter inch plate, standard spacing of mounting holes 10" X 4.5" and 10" centers on the fairlead mount. If you are mounting a large winch, you will need half inch longer mounting bolts to secure the handles into the same mounting holes as your winch. Smaller winches you can the use the carriage bolts in the box. Comes with two rubber handle grips not shown in the picture and the receiver pin. 24769

  • Hitch-Mounted Winch Mounting Plate for Badlands Winch
    We offer several hitch-type winch mounts that fit a 2-inch hitch. These include the Curt # C31009 with handles, Curt # C31010 without handles, the Draw-Tite # 6495 and Bulldog # BDW20011 among others. All are shown on the linked page. Most winches will bolt right up to these mounts since they use industry-standard mounting hole spacing but it is possible that a certain winch might req

  • Are Rear Trailer Hitch Receivers Rated for Straight Line Pull
    None of the rear mounted trailer hitch receivers are rated/tested for straight line pull. They are only tested/rated for gross trailer weight (GTW) and tongue weight (TW). However, I spoke to my contact at Curt who informed me that the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C15324 which is a confirmed fit for your 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche should be capable of handling up to 9,000 lbs straight line pull. If you need a mounting plate for your winch to use on the back of the above trailer...

  • Can I Mount A Superwinch 18k Winch To Curt Winch Mount Plate # C31009
    The Curt Winch Mount Plate # C31009 will be able to support the winch, but you will need to measure the mounting points of your winch to determine if the winch will mount up. You will not want to exceed the capacity of your front mount winch for weight and winching. The mounting holes for the CURT Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31009, are 10 inches by 4.328 to 4.797 inches. It will accept a winch with a mounting pattern of 10x4-1/2 inches if the mounting holes on the winch...

  • Winch Mounting Plate for 2 Hitch Receiver to Fit Warn M12000 Winch
    From what I was able to find, the Warn M12000 winch is 24.37" L. x 8.45" D. x 11" H. I've attached a picture with the dimensions on the Bulldog Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Plate # BDW20011 but since the mounting cradle is only 8-5/16" wide (8.31") your Warn winch is going to be just a bit too large for this cradle. Since Warn winches are traditionally a bit larger than Bulldogs, I'd recommend using a winch plate like the Curt Electric Winch Plate # C31009 . This is also a hitch mounted...

  • Front Mount Hitch Receiver and Winch Mount to Clear Bumper on a 2015 Ford F-150
    I went out to the warehouse to take a measurement of Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65067 for your 2015 Ford F-150. It measures 9-1/2 inches from the cross tube to the end of the receiver. Compare that to the Curt hitch # C31083 that you have installed to determine if there is a difference. You could just need a different mount for the winch such as # C31010. I have linked a video showing the key dimensions and features and another video featuring this mount. There is also a version...

  • Difference Between the Superwinch LP10000 and the Tiger Shark Series Winches
    While we don't carry the Superwinch LP10000 winch we do know that it is an intermediate level winch with a lot of great features whereas the Tiger Shark Series like the part # SW1595200 that you referenced is more of an entry level winch. Just comparing the specs between the two winches I was surprised to see that the Tiger Shark does have a higher horsepower motor as well as the higher gear ratio meaning that it would reel the wire in a little bit faster. It does have a slightly lower...

  • Front Mount Hitch Recommendation for 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
    The Curt Front Mount Hitch Receiver, part # C31071, is confirmed as a fit for your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500. This hitch has a 2 inch receiver opening and is an easy, bolt-on installation. If you need to maneuver a trailer using your front hitch I recommend a ball mount like part # 2923. This ball mount has a 3/4 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. I have attached a link to a product review for this ball mount you can check out. If you need a hitch ball I recommend part # 63845 for the 2 inch...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Plate and Wiring for a Warn VR8 Winch
    I checked with Warn and the mounting hole spacing for the VR8 winch is 10 inches side to side and 4-1/2 inches front to back with the overall length of the winch at 20.7 inches and 6.3 inches front to back. Based on that you can use Curt mount # C31009 or # C31010, Draw-Tite # 6495, or Superwinch mount # SW2050. At most your winch can draw up to 457 amps and a 650 cold cranking amp minimum battery is recommended. Based on these figures I would go with wiring and quick disconnect kit...

  • Recommendations for Adding a Front Mount Winch to a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Because of the way the Westin Sportsman Grille Guard, # 40-0125, attaches to the vehicle, see instructions link provided, a winch cannot be mounted to the grille guard. The connection method and construction of the grille guard are not sufficient for winching applications. What you can do is install a front mount trailer hitch, # C31048. This hitch will provide a safe, strong, and secure connection point to the vehicle frame which is ideal for winching applications. You could then use...

  • Recommendation for an Electric Trailer Winch Hitch Mounted Winch Plate for a Superwinch
    You will need to check the bolt hole mounting pattern of your Superwinch LP8500 but we do offer several hitch mounted winch mounting plates that may work. First, we have the Draw-Tite Mounting Plate, # 6495. The mounting hole dimensions for it can be found on the product page, below the description. Next we have the Curt Mounting Plate, # C31010. On it, the first set of mounting holes are 10 by 4-1/2 inches, and the second set of mounting holes measure 6-1/2 by 4-1/2 inches center to...

  • Recommended Winch Mount For 2 Inch Receiver On 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van
    For your 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van with 144 Wheel Base, you would need to use the winch on the rear receiver as there are not any front hitch receiver options from our manufacturers compatible with your vehicle. We do have a rear trailer hitch receiver compatible with your vehicle. It is the Curt Class III # 13358. For a winch mount, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate and Handle Assembly # C31009. This will work with most standard winches. I have...

  • Curt Winch Mount Plate Recommendation for Superwinch Tiger Shark Winch
    Yes, the Superwinch Tiger Shark Series Off-Road Winch # SW1511200 that you referenced will fit the Curt Winch Mount part # C31009 that you also referenced. The winch has more capacity than the mount so you would have to stay under the 9k rating of the mount. The Curt mount is designed to fit the standard mounting bolt pattern of winches like this Superwinch.

  • Winch Carrier Needed for an 18 Series Warn Winch
    I am not sure what the mounting bolt pattern is for your 18 Series Warn winch but we have the Curt Trailer Hitch Electric Winch Mount Plate # C31009 which has the standard 10" x 4-1/2" bolt hole patterns and fits a 2" hitch receiver. This also includes handles to help make transporting your winch much easier. Attached is a photo of the dimensions for the mounting plate as well as a review video for you to reference.

  • Hitch Mounted Winch Plate with Higher Weight Capacity
    I have a similar solution for you but the Curt winch mount you referenced has a 9,000 lb capacity so it would not be rated high enough. Instead we have the Bulldog Hitch Mounted Winch Plate part # BDW20011 which is rated as having the same weight capacity as the trailer hitch it is installed in. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Recommendation For A Front Hitch Interchangeable With Rear Hitch For Winch On A 2012 Chevy 2500 HD
    I recommend the Draw-Tite front hitch # 65078 for your 2012 Chevy 2500HD because it's position provides ground clearance and will work well with a winch mount. Attached is what it looks like installed. It has a line pull rating of 9,000 lbs. As long as your rear hitch is not a Class V hitch receiver with a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" opening, you will have no issue moving your winch to the back. In that case a reducer like the Brophy Hitch # HR26 would be worth a look. The Curt winch plate...
