Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch

This compact, standard-duty trailer winch lets you pull cars, trucks, mini-vans, and other vehicles onto your trailer. You can mount the winch directly to your trailer deck or front rail with the included mounting plate. The side-mounted power unit and rotating gearbox allow the winch to fit easily into most custom cabinets or boxes. And it includes a hand-held remote, synthetic rope, hawse fairlead, and a free-spooling clutch.


Heavy-Duty, 5.2-Horsepower Motor

Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch Motor

This winch features a 5.2-horsepower, 12-volt DC motor with 7,800 lbs of line pull. The permanent magnet motor offers the same line-pulling power and speed as a series-wound motor of comparable size, but it's lighter and uses less current. The motor is constructed of durable, corrosion-resistant materials including the powder coated housing, copper battery terminals, and zinc-plated steel hardware.


Power Unit with Sealed Contactor

Power Unit

The contactor - or solenoid - transmits power from the vehicle's battery to the winch motor. The 450-amp contactor - located inside the power unit - is sealed to meet IP67 specifications for water and weather resistance. The copper terminals and zinc-plated hardware are corrosion resistant.


Bulldog Winch Remote plug

There is a rubber-sealed, weatherproof attachment port on the power unit for the remote control. An integrated rubber cap lets you cover the port when it's not in use.


Free-Spooling Clutch

Bulldog Winch Free-Spooling Clutch freespool

The free-spool clutch enables you to pull out the rope by hand. This saves battery power, prevents the brake from wearing down prematurely, reduces wear on the motor, and is much faster than waiting for the drum to unroll the rope. To release the clutch for free-spooling simply rotate the handle to the position indicated by the stick figure icon on the label. To reengage the clutch, rotate the handle back to the position indicated by the vehicle icon on the label.


The clutch is driven by a 3-stage planetary gear train. This provides more speed than traditional worm gear drives or 1- or 2-stage planetary gear trains. An internal spring-loaded pin locks it into or out of gear when the handle is turned.


The gearbox can be rotated in 30-degree increments to 12 different positions to ensure that you can easily access the clutch handle no matter where the winch is mounted. This is great for installation in a custom cabinet or box where space is limited.


The chrome-plated clutch handle is stylish and weather resistant. The steel gearbox is sealed to keep out moisture, and it has a rust-resistant black powder coat finish.


Automatic, Load-Holding Mechanical Brake

Bulldog Winch Mechanical Brake

The automatic mechanical brake securely holds a load and prevents unintentional payout (or creep). A large spring coil contracts when the winch is in gear and the drum is winding in. When the winch stops, the load starts to pull and the spring expands to press against the spring chamber. The pressure of the spring on the wall of the spring chamber creates resistance to stop the drum from rotating outward. At maximum pressure the brake holds 100 percent of the load.


The friction created when the spring is pressing against the spring chamber creates heat. That heat is quickly dispersed away from the motor shaft and through the gearbox. This prevents potentially damaging heat buildup near the motor.


Weather-Resistant Hand-Held Remote

Bulldog Winch Hand-Held Remote

The hand-held remote has a 20' lead and in/out rocker switch so you can control your winch from the back of your trailer. The rocker switch is sealed and water resistant so it won't get damaged in wet conditions. Simply plug the durable plastic remote into the power unit when you need to use it, and disconnect it to store it away when you aren't using it.


The wireless remote kit (BDW20156 - sold separately) lets you operate the winch from up to 100' away.


Synthetic Rope

Bulldog Winch Synthetic Rope

The rope is made of synthetic HMPE fiber that is lightweight yet stronger than steel. This synthetic rope is safer to use than a steel rope because it generates less kinetic energy - and therefore less kickback - if a break occurs. It won't stretch - or creep - over time like steel rope can. And it's also less likely to fray and create sharp strands so it's easier to handle and easier to spool.


The rope winds around a solid steel drum. The mounting flanges are strong enough to resist bending or breaking if the rope wrap becomes uneven and excess stress is put on the drum.


A 6' long woven polyester protective sleeve at the hook end of the rope provides extra protection for your hands. A hand-saver strap is also included to use in conjunction with work gloves (BDW20070 - sold separately) so that you can safely handle the rope and hook.


Steel Hook

The red hook attaches directly to a stainless steel thimble at the end of the synthetic rope. The hook is constructed of high-strength forged alloy steel that is heavy duty and rust resistant. It has a spring-loaded safety latch for quick fastening and removal.


Aluminum Hawse Fairlead

Bulldog Winch Aluminum Hawse Fairlead

The compact hawse fairlead is designed for use with synthetic ropes. It helps guide the rope as it's winding in and out, and it has a rounded hole to help prevent wear on the rope. The 3/4" thick fairlead has a silver anodized finish that resists corrosion, and it installs to the mounting plate with zinc-plated hardware.


Rugged Construction

Bulldog Winch Winch Body

The winch is constructed of strong, durable materials that are able to withstand any weather condition or terrain. The motor housing and gearbox are made of corrosion-resistant powder coated steel. The contactor is sealed to keep water out, and the power unit is made of heavy-duty yet lightweight plastic. The steel tie bars and side frame drum supports help to create a strong and rigid winch body.


Installation

This versatile winch can be mounted to your trailer in several different ways. You can bolt the included plate onto the deck of your trailer and attach the winch and fairlead. Counter-sunk bolt holes in the mounting plate ensure that the hex heads of the included bolts don't protrude above the trailer's flat surface. This is the easiest method and does not require welding, but it does leave a footprint on your deck.


Bulldog Winch Winch Installation

You can mount the plate to the front rail of your trailer. This method elevates the winch so it's easy to reach and frees up valuable space on your deck, but will require welding the plate to the rail. You can also weld the plate to the front frame of the trailer so that the winch sits at at deck level without using up space on the deck.


The compact, low-profile design allows the winch to easily fit into most custom cabinets or boxes. This method keeps the winch out of the elements and keeps it hidden. Many cabinets and boxes can even be locked to protect the winch from would-be thieves. You can also install a dedicated battery inside or near the cabinet to power the winch. This prevents the winch from putting a strain on your vehicle's battery, and it eliminates the need to run a power lead all the way to the front of your truck.


Winch Line Pull Capacity

Layers of RopeCapacity (lbs)Total Rope on Drum (ft)
1st Layer7,8006
2nd Layer6,54013
3rd Layer5,50021
4th Layer4,75030
5th Layer4,12040
6th Layer3,73050

The line pull capacity of your winch is determined by the maximum load your winch can pull with a single layer of rope on the drum. As more layers of rope are wound onto the drum, pulling the same load requires more force, leading to a loss in winching power. With a 2nd layer of rope around the drum, your line pull capacity is reduced by approximately 14 percent. With 3 layers on the drum, the line pull capacity is reduced by approximately 23 percent, and with 4 layers on the drum it is reduced by approximately 35 percent.


Note: It is recommended that you begin any line pull with a minimum of 5 wraps and a maximum of 2 layers of rope on the drum.


Vehicle Recovery and Winch Capacity

To select the appropriate trailer winch for your application, determine your gross vehicle weight. The GVW is the stand-alone weight of your vehicle plus the weight of any items in and on the vehicle. Once you have determined the GVW of your vehicle, choose a winch with a capacity that is 1-1/2 times your GVW. Using that formula, this winch - with an 7,800-pound capacity - will work for vehicles with an approximate GVW of 5,200 pounds.


Rolling Load Winch Capacity

Percent InclineRolling Load Capacity (lbs)
Level Surface78,000
5 (3°)52,026
10 (6°)39,156
20 (11°)26,520
30 (17°)20,358
50 (26°)14,508
70 (35°)11,934
100 (45°)10,062
Rolling Load

To calculate your winch's rolling load capacity - the amount of weight it can pull up an incline - you must multiply the line pull capacity by a factor determined by the degree of the incline.

The multiplication factors shown in the chart, right, include a 10-percent rolling friction factor.


Note: A 5-percent - or 3-degree - incline is a 1/2' rise over a 10' distance. Follow the chart to determine your winch's rolling load capacity.



Double-Line Pulling

Double-Line Pulling

Increase the pulling capacity of your winch by doubling up the rope with a pulley block (BDW20028 - sold separately). Secure the pulley block to the vehicle you are pulling with a bow shackle (BDW20020 - sold separately) to provide a strong anchor for your double-line pull. Using double-line operation will approximately double your winch's pulling capacity.

Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Electric Winch - Car Trailer Winch - BDW10032 Review

Today we're going to review part number BDW10032. This is the Bulldog 5.2 Horsepower Trailer Winch with the synthetic rope and the mounting plate, and a 7800 pound weight capacity. This 7800 trailer winch with the 5.2 horsepower motor is tailored to the car hauler trailer customer. Has 50 feet of synthetic rope with a rope tensioner for easy spooling and rope management. At the very end it does include this nice bright red steel latch hook for hooking to whatever you're going to be winching. It also includes this nice woven hand saver strap that's used ...

you never want to your hand on the hook when you're hooking up, so you use this strap to hook it up. This synthetic rope all comes through this Hawse Fairlead, which is already mounted to the mounting plate. That Fairlead has nice rounded edges. What that does is allow the synthetic rope to come through very easily. When it rewinds back in, it helps keep it in order so it doesn't bunch up on your drum. It does include a free spooling clutch.

You can see the shifter right here is located at the front of the winch. Basically, what that does is when you pushes in the up position, that means it's engaged and you're ready to operate the winch to let out your rope or pull it in. When you want to pull out some extra rope to make it faster, you just push this down. That would be in the disengage position. That allow the drum to free spool, so you can pull out as much rope as you need.

When you're ready to winch it you just flip it back up into the engage position. It does have automatic load holding. It is an all in one design, which includes it's mounted onto the mounting plate for easy deck mounting. It's a very low profile compact design. Over here, this is the premium 450 amp sealed switch, gives you superior resistance to water and inclement weather. This can be mounted. It has a bracket here with 2 holes in it that you can line up with the 2 holes here, so you can actually mount this right here to the end of your motor, if you'd like to. The sealed switch, if you noticed, does have some leads coming off of it.

First one I want to show you is the . it's about a 6 foot long red lead. This is for the positive side of your battery that you'd hook to. The separate black wire, same way, it's about 6 feet, comes with some covers for the connectors. This goes from the post right here to the negative post on your battery, so when you hook it up. These other 3 leads, which are right here, you can see on those they have a black one, a red one, and a yellow one. Those you just connect to your motor. I'm just going to turn this a little bit to show you what helps you out when you install it. If you'll notice on these connection points where these get 00:02:48, they're also colored red, yellow, and black, so you just match your colors up to there when you connect. It makes it a simple installation. It also comes with this 20 foot wired remote controller. It's long enough with 20 feet of wire that you can use it at the back of the trailer, if you're pulling a car on up to your trailer car hauler. It does have a nice, you can see, in and out toggle switch. What's nice is you have to hold it down for it to operate. As soon as you remove your thumb, it will go to the off position. Again, 20 feet of wire. This would get attached to this 3 pin plug. Once this is all hooked up, this gets plugged into your switch. You just remove that. There's a little indentation that you just line up with there. Once you get that lined up . See where the indentation is You can see it just pushes right into place. Then you're ready to operate your winch with your remote. We do also offer .whoops, let's pull that off. We do also offer if you'd like, we sell it separately. It's a optional wireless remote where you don't have the length of wire. It's part number BD20156. We do sell that separately on our website. It's listed on the product page as a related product. This winch does come with a 2 year limited warranty. I want to give you a few specs on this winch. The rated line pull with a single layer of synthetic rope around the drum is 7800 pounds. The motor on it again, is a 12 volt DC, 5.2 horsepower series wound motor. The line pull at 0 pounds has a power draw of 80 amps and a line speed of 10 feet per minute. A line pull at the maximum 7800 pounds has a power draw of 330 amps, and a line speed of 4 feet per minute. The gear train in this is a 3 stage planetary. The gear ratio is 218 to 1. Again, the clutch is a free spooling clutch. The braking is an automatic load hold. The size on this, to give you an idea of the winch dimensions, the overall length at the longest point is about 19 inches. The height, or I'm sorry, the width, at the widest point is 8 inches. The overall height at the tallest point right about here, is 6 1/2 inches. The rope that comes with it, the synthetic rope, is a 5/16 diameter by 50 foot long. The drum that it goes on has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches and it's about 2 3/4 inches long. The mounting plate actually has holes drilled in it. They're at a measurement, the mounting pattern, on the 4 bolt mounting pattern on the mounting plate is 12 inches center to center this way, and the width is 5 3/4 inches center to center. The weight on this is about 61 pounds. That should do it for the review on part number BDW10032, the Bulldog 5.2 Horsepower Trailer Winch with the synthetic rope and the mounting plate, and a 7800 pound weight capacity. .

I used the winch so I can load and unload a 78 Trans Am which weighs about 3K, and the winch works great. The winch makes easy work of loading and unloading the car and the rope line doesn't damage the floor of the custom trailer. I highly recommend this winch. The narrow cable spool also limits the need to push the cable/rope from sided to side, which again when loading is one less thing to watch while loading the car by myself. 628688
