Video Transcript for Review of Bulldog Winch Electric Winch - Car Trailer Winch - BDW66FR

Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this Bulldog winch 9,800 pound trailer winch with the wire rope and the roller fair lead. Now this heavy duty winch will let you pull trucks, vans, tractors, and other large vehicles onto your trailer. So this is perfect for gooseneck car haulers, flatbeds, tagalongs, and large tilt trailers. This has a nice low profile design, which means it'll fit easily into most custom cabinets or boxes.

The motor on this is a 5.8 horsepower permanent magnet motor, which will deliver powerful, fast and safe line pulling. And the motors lighter, uses less current than a series round motor. They do have a vent in the motor to let vapor escape to prevent any moisture buildup. This winch does use an automatic mechanical brake, which will hold a hundred percent of the load while minimizing any winch creep.On the other side, is the all steel, three-stage planetary gear train. It provides increased drum speed, when compared with the worm drives or the one or two stage planetary gear trains.

Gear ratio on this is 265 to one. Now this does offer a free spooling clutch, which will ensure nice fast rope payout, reduces wear on the motor, has this clutch handle right here. That'll let you put it into the engaged or the disengaged position. Right now, with the handle pointing up, that means it's engaged. The winch is ready to operate.

If you want to pre-spool some wire, you can just turn this 180 degrees. It's pointing down and it'll show a figure pulling out. So now it's free spools. You can pull out as much wire as you need. Once you get out as much as you need, then you want to go back to the engaged position, just rotate this up 180 degrees, and now you're ready to operate with the remote.The other nice thing is this gearbox right over here can be rotated 360 degrees and installed in 12 different positions so that you can reach this clutch handle no matter where you mount the winch.

Over here is the side mounted power unit, it includes the contactor in the plastic housing, and all your electric wiring you need. Here's your battery wires right back here that are connected. On the inside of this housing is a sealed 365 amp contactor, which will transmit power from the battery to your winch motor. It is water, weather resistant to IP 67 specifications. We mentioned the remote right here. Does include this wired handheld remote, that'll let you operate the winch from about 20 feet away, has a 20 foot long cable. Basically what you have to do is just take your three pin plug here, and there's a little notch. You just line that notch up with the pins, push it into place, and then extend your cable out, and then you can operate your toggle switch in and out.Nice wired remote. Now they do also offer a wireless remote that has a hundred foot range. That is sold separately on our website. It's listed on this product page as a related product. That would be BDW 200156, and that'll allow you to do it wirelessly up to a hundred feet away. Now the wire rope on this it's 50 feet long, three eighths inch diameter, zinc plated wire rope. It's very strong and abrasion resistant. They do use a steel spring tensioner, which allows easy rope management, and ensures correct spooling. The hook on it, you can see it includes a nice three-eighths inch size steel hook, and even this red nice nylon hand saver strap is included. Now on the hook itself, you can see does have this nice keeper to keep it attached.The wire rope comes through this nice heavy duty compact roller fairly. You can see it has four steel rollers, two horizontal, two vertical, and that'll help reduce the friction and wear on the rope. So as the wire rope goes through there and goes up against these rollers, it'll help it move along. No wear on the wire rope. Has a silver zinc plated finish to help resist corrosion.Now you can see the steel mounting plate at the bottom here, and the hardware comes with it. So I'll include it. Let you mount the winch and the fairly to the trailer deck or the frame. This winch has a nice durable black powder coat steel body, and motor to help resist corrosion. The Dacromet plated motor tube will resist internal corrosion. The tie bars right here, and the side frames help create a nice, strong, rigid winch body. Now it does come with this nice installation manual to describe how this all gets put together, and how it installs. A few specs on this, the rate of the line pole with just a single layer of wire rope around the drum, the static load would be 9,800 pounds. Rolling load is 90,000 pounds. The motor we mentioned is a 12 volt DC motor. The line pull at zero pounds. The power draw would be 51 amps. Line speed is 29 feet per minute. A line pull at the maximum 9,800 pounds. Your power draw is going to be the 365 amps, and the line speed is about five and three quarters feet per minute. The battery wires I showed you earlier that are attached back here, these are wire size of one gauge, and the lead length on them is six feet.Last thing I want to do is there should be some overall dimensions on this winch. The weight of it is about 77 pounds. The length from this end to this end, it's going to be right at about 21 and a half inches long. The width of it would measure from the front of the fairlead to the back of the mounting plate. You're going to be right about 10 inches wide and the height, the tallest point is where this handle is. So if we sort of go from here to the top of the handle, it's going to be right about eight inches tall, but that should do it for the review on the Bulldog winch, 9,800 pound trailer winch with the wire rope and the roller fair lead.

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 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.

Review from a similar Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch in Electric Winch


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.

Review from a similar Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch in Electric Winch


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.

Review from a similar Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch in Electric Winch


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.

Review from a similar Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch in Electric Winch


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!

This winch has been a great addition to our haul trailer. Saves a lot of time and money. I no longer have to send a helper with my driver to assist with loading broken down equipment. Plenty of power, so far, so good. Thanks. NB

Seems to be a good winch. Although the metal cable guide (not the Fairlead) that helps the cable spool in order broke in first use.

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!


Comments
For maximum power, the recommended battery size for this product is 650 CCA.

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.

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.

Excellent winch. It has never failed me after a year of use in my featherlike car hauler. The synthetic rope won't harm the extruded aluminum floor. Easy to free spool and re-engage. I installed the wireless remote which I recommend for convenience.

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.

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

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.

Review from a similar Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch in Electric Winch


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.

    What you're needing is a receiver winch mount like part # 6495. The mount will work in a 2 inch receiver on the rear or front of a vehicle.
