Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch

This compact, light-duty trailer winch lets you pull ATVs, UTVs, golf carts, and other small vehicles onto your trailer. You can mount the winch directly to your trailer deck or front rail with the included mounting plate. It also fits easily into most custom cabinets or boxes. And it includes a hand-held remote, synthetic rope, hawse fairlead, and a free-spooling clutch.


Light-Duty, 1.5-Horsepower Motor

Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch Motor

This winch features a 1.5-horsepower, 12-volt DC motor with 3,400 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 250-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

The on/off switch on the back of the power unit lets you shut off the power when you aren't using the winch. There is also 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 "Freespool" position. To reengage the clutch, rotate the handle back to the "Engaged" position. The clutch positions are indicated by a diagram on the gearbox and are also labeled on the knob.


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.


The steel gearbox has a rust-resistant black powder coat finish and is sealed to keep out moisture.


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 (BDW20212 - 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 removable clevis 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. The hook attaches to the steel thimble on the end of the synthetic rope.


Cast Iron Hawse Fairlead

Bulldog Winch Cast Iron Hawse Fairlead

The 3/4" thick cast iron fairlead has a rounded hole that helps prevent friction damage to the rope as it winds in and out. The fairlead installs with zinc-plated hardware, and it has a black anodized finish that resists corrosion.


Rugged Construction

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.


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 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 Layer3,40010
2nd Layer2,89320
3rd Layer2,51730
4th Layer2,22842
5th Layer1,99850

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 3,400-pound capacity - will work for vehicles with an approximate GVW of 2,267 pounds.


Rolling Load Winch Capacity

Percent InclineRolling Load Capacity (lbs)
Level Surface34,000
5 (3°)22,678
10 (6°)17,068
20 (11°)11,560
30 (17°)8,874
50 (26°)6,324
70 (35°)5,202
100 (45°)4,386
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.

I mounted this winch on my racing trailer. I use it to winch a 2700lb car into position. It has worked flawlessly. Easy on the battery, really like the fiber cable over steel. This winch is perfect for my application. I would highly recommend this product.



by:

Well made. Using it as a load winch for my enclosed trailer.



by:

Well I haven't used it yet so that review will need to wait. It arrived on time and the box was in good shape. Will work on getting it installed and operational in the near future.



by:

Fast response, good quality, l’ll recom mend.



by:

I'm very happy with this winch so far, and also with etrailer for their customer service. The winch arrived quickly after I ordered it, but was missing the hook. I went ahead and installed it on my equipment trailer and was able to offload my son's car, but I really needed the hook to be able to handle the heavy chain needed for loading my tractor. Customer service (Rose B.) was very helpful and the missing hook arrived in less than a week.

Installation was easy, and I added two heavy angle-brackets so the winch frame is bolted to the trailer frame as well as the decking (photos attached). I used my own longer stainless bolts because of the thicker material.



by:

I bought this winch to use in my enclosed car trailer to load heavy pallets on a pallet jack. This worked perfect, as the remote allowed me to guide the pallet jack as i was winching. The install was very easy with 4 bolts and a backing plate under the trailer floor. I used a portable battery box with deep cycle battery borrowed from my trolling motor to power it as the trailer has no provision for a battery.
I am very impressed with the performance and will be installing another one on my ATV trailer.



by:

I chose this winch for an 18 ft Kwik load roll back open car hauler. Size and price met my needs. Installed it in a 30" tool box on the forward deck of the trailer under the tire rack. Perfect size to hold the winch, battery and additional straps. Using a GM F body battery tray/hold down for securing a group 75 battery. To hook to the battery side posts I did swap the connectors to larger copper eye terminals. Will be finishing it by adding a small solar panel to maintain juice. Only used this once so far. Everything worked very smoothly. Real happy with how it came out. Thanks etrailer!



by:

I've had the winch for a year and its been reliable. I use it to load/unload a 2500 lbs race car from a flatbed trailer. I do have it enclosed in a steel box with a battery and solar panel charger on top. The one issue I have with it is that it does not evenly spool-up the cable...it tends to spool it towards the center versus back and forth across the face of the winch. (If there is a simple fix for that, please let me know!)
Otherwise good winch for the money!



by:

First unit worked fine for a couple of months then the "power" unwind function quit. We could only unspool it in free spool mode, meaning no ability to do a controlled lowering off the trailer. Shipped back to Bulldog, they replaced the remote control and it works fine now. But cost to ship back to Bulldog (they don't cover that cost even in warranty period) was almost 1/2 the cost of an entirely new winch. I wish Bulldog would have covered the return shipping cost during warranty. Generally happy with the winch, but the shipping cost made me sick.



by:

Easy Installation. Needed a little coaxing to free spool at first, but operates fine. Compact and a great application for my Cobra hauler.



by:

Very Happy with the unit. Had to drag a dead tractor up the ramps onto my flatbed. The unit did the trick. I really like the wireless feature b/c I can monitor the loading anywhere around the trailer



by:

Just installed yesterday. Nice appearance and very compact. Smaller foot print than the winch plate on my trailer. It was nice to have the mounting hardware and mounting plate included with the winch.

Pulled 20’ of cable out and powered it in. Motor is whisper quiet. I like the 20’ remote cable which gets me to the back end of my 20’ trailer deck easily.



by:

Excellent customer service, very fast shipping would highly recommend this company!



by:

Easy to order online. Really fast service !!



by:

My winch is mounted on a pedestal welded to the tongue of an open trailer. I power the winch with a 12v marine battery mounted in a watertight box and a small solar charger. The winch pulls a 3000-pound car onto a trailer with ease.



by:

Typical Chinese product. The controller failed the first time I tried to use the winch. The cause of the failure was the paper thin female terminals on the ends of the wires. These parts were completely soft and would not stay tight on the male terminals they fit on. The only solution was to replace the female terminals with a standard quality terminal that was made of much thicker material and was hard enough that the terminal would stay on the mating part and make a consistent electrical connection. After I replaced the less than satisfactory terminals, I have had no more problems. Personally, I am outraged that The problem happened solely because the manufacturer tried to save perhaps a nickel by using toy parts instead of regular grade terminals. This is why I hate to purchase anything that was made in China. It took me a few hours to diagnosis, access the terminals, find replacements and drive to purchase them, install them and reassemble the control section of the winch to repair a problem that never, ever, should have
occurred.



by:

Works great for loading my classic car into my box trailer. I like the remote control feature. It allows walking around the car to make sure it is tracking properly. Pull strength is adequate and small size takes up minimum space.



by:

the Bull dog winch arrived on time and in good condition, it was easy to get the parts put together, but the real thrill was when i tried it out, WOW what a great job it did, it has plenty of power to do what i need to do, and the price was good. hopefully i will make another order soon,

once again thankyou,



by:

I haven't used it much although i am s atisficed



by:

It really did a great job pulling two trucks up on to my trailer
I would recommend this winch



by:

Great product, great service, easy to install. Instruction manual could use a little update. but nothing major. Very happy with this product. Buy this if you need a to pull a car onto a trailer...



by:

Couldn't ask for a better winch. Even though I don't have the remote their is plenty of cord for the control. I have it in our enclosed car hauler and it has plenty of power and the brake works great on a 4000 lb. car. It is a little of over kill but bigger is better. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you for a great product and the service you give.



by:

Works good with fully charged battery, but if the battery is discharged some, the wireless remote control will not work, and you have to plug the wire in!



by:

Everything came as ordered. Can’t ask for more.



by:

Yery nice winch. Was here 2 days after ordering. Very happy with my orders from Etrailer!

  • Recommendation for Quiet Electric Winch to Use Indoors
    I spoke with my contacts at Bulldog and checked with other electric winch manufacturers and found that the noise/decibel level for winches is simply not something that is tested. The noise output is going to be pretty similar between different brand and model electric winches. If noise level is a concern then my best advice is to go with a winch that uses synthetic rope instead of wire rope. This single component will make the biggest difference in noise. If you were using a wire rope...

  • Mounting 3.4K Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch on a Boat Trailer
    Basically you would remove the winch you have now and bolt on winch # BDW15018 in its place. Although you do want to have as straight of a line pull as you can so wherever the bow eye is on the boat you will want the opening on the fairlead on the winch to be at the same level. That really goes for any kind of winch. Whether or not that requires any modification or additional parts will vary among different applications.

  • Tips on Loading a 2004 FourWinns Model 194 FunShip Boat Onto a Trailer From the Water
    The key to launching a boat into the water from the trailer is to know how far to back the trailer in. It takes some time to get used to, and different ramps may require you back more or less in, but once you have it figured out it should be easy. The winch you are using may not be rated high enough for the boat. With the trailer back into the water at the right spot, the right winch should not have trouble pulling the boat since part of it will still be floating. A 3400 pound capacity...

  • Electric Winch Recommendation to Pull 1,500 Pound Logs onto a Utility Trailer
    Since you will be more or less dragging the log, you will want a winch with at least the capacity of the heaviest log, but I would go a little heavier than that to account for longer winching distances and flat terrain should you encounter it. A 3.4K winch like # BDW15018 would be a great option and you would have plenty of capacity. A winch with a higher capacity will not be working as hard as a lower capacity winch and it will last longer. I have also linked our FAQ on electric winches...

  • Where is the Bulldog Winch # BDW15018 Manufactured?
    While we do have a U.S.A. made option, the Bulldog Winch # BDW15018 is made in China. For a great American alternative, the highest capacity U.S.A. made winch we have is the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch w/ Pulley Block, AC Powered # DL24876. This winch has a load capacity of 4,000 pounds when using a double line on the pully. Using a double line also improves overall control of pulling/lowering.
