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.

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,

the bulldog winch works very well, i have worked several winches in my lifetime but this is one of the best i have used, the price was great as well.



by:

The guide that keeps your tow chord was crap It literally broke the second using it and the chord would get all twisted and starting rubbing against the mount and fraying.

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

Easy to order online. Really fast service !!



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:

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:

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:

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:

Received my Bull dog winch promptly. Had to return for an issue with the cable. etrailer made the return easy and personal and sent me a new winch from the factory with in days. Great personal customer service.



by:

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



by:

Installed into my covered car trailer. Had a little trouble figuring out how to connect the battery cable on my 2016 Silverado, other than that, very simple to set up and operate. Now I don't have to worry about trying to drive the car up into the trailer risking scraping the sides.

  • Does the Bulldog Winch BDW66FR Have an Automatic Brake While Extending and Retracting?
    I spoke to Bulldog Winch and they did confirm the Bulldog Winch # BDW66FR does have an automatic brake as soon as the button is let off. This will work while being extended or retracted.

  • Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate For Bulldog BDW66FR Trailer Winch
    What you're needing is a receiver winch mount like part # BDW20011. The mount will work in a 2-inch receiver on the rear or front of a vehicle. If the mounting plate of the Bulldog # BDW66FR winch is removed, the 6-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern of the winch will perfectly match that of the # BDW20011 mount. The mount has holes that would be compatible with the 10 inch center to center bolt pattern for the winch fairlead. The mount has 10-1/2 inch center to center fairlead bolt hole spacing,...

  • Will The Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW66FR Connect To a Stand Alone 12 Volt Battery?
    The Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW66FR you found only includes one positive power wire for connecting to the battery as it grounds the negative through the mounts. You would need an additional 1 gauge wire to run from the mount to the ground terminal on the battery to run off a stand alone battery. We do have the Bulldog Winch Heavy-Duty Series Off-Road Winch # BDW94FR which is wired to connect directly to a stand alone battery. This is a much heavier duty winch which is rated for...

  • Recommended Electric Winch for Car Trailer
    It sounds like you're looking for an electric winch for your car trailer. I recommend the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 4,400 lbs # BDW15019. This has a static load of 4,400 lbs and a rolling load of 44,000 lbs. If you're looking for something with a higher rated line pull, the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 9,800 lbs # BDW66FR may be a better option. This has a 9,800 lb static load and 98,000 lb rolling load. Both of these come...

  • Determining The Correct Capacity Winch For A 10,000lb Boat
    There are two schools of thought when it comes to determining the correct sized winch for a boat. The first being that the winch should be able to handle 3/4th of the total combined weight of the boat along with the motor, fuel and gear. The second being a 2:1 ratio (winch is capable of handling 1/2 of the weight). There are other factors that can limit or improve a winch's ability to pull the boat onto the the trailer, such as whether your trailer has good rollers or wooden bunks and...

  • Recommended Front Mounted Trailer Hitch And Winch For A 2022 Ram 2500 Diesel
    For your 2022 Ram 2500 I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - 2" # C31089. This hitch has a 9,000lb Line Pull capacity, 500lb Vertical load capacity, and a Gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000lbs. The receiver tube is the only visible portion of this trailer hitch for a sleek hidden design. For the winch I recommend the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 9,800lbs # BDW66FR. This winch has a higher weight capacity than your front...

  • How Do Winches Normally Attach to Trailer
    We don't have winch plates designed specifically for mounting winches to trailers but what a lot of people will do is attach the winch to a hitch plate like the part # C31010 and then weld a hitch tube to the trailer like with the part # E-9. This allows you to pretty easily remove the winch if ever needed as well.
