Video Transcript for Review of Bulldog Utility Winch - BD54FR

Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Bulldog wire rope utility winch, with the roller fairlead and a 2,500 pound weight capacity. Now this is a nice light duty winch that'll let you pull ATVs, UTVs, golf carts, and other small vehicles onto your trailer. It does have a 2,500 pound rated line pull capacity. Does come with this nice wired remote for power in and power out, for powerful retraction and rapid rope payout.

It is a handheld remote, has a 10 foot lead on it, and this nice in and out rocker switch so that you can control your winch from the back of your trailer.Now the rocker switch is sealed and water resistant so it won't get damaged in wet conditions, and the other end here you just simply plug into the power unit right down here when you need to use it. When you're done using it, you just unplug it and you can store it away. It does use a high torque permanent magnet motor, gives you a higher pull at lower amps. Does use a three stage planetary gearbox, which will deliver reliable performance in tough conditions. And on this end it has a clutch lever right over here you can see, you can pop it up, push it down.

It lifts or lowers for easy transition between gear engagement and free spooling. So if you pull it up like this, it'll allow you to pull out as much cable as you need, free spool it. When you get enough out, push it down, it'll engage the gears and then you're ready to operate it with your remote.Does offer dual brakes, includes both a mechanical brake and a slip free motor dynamic brake to minimize slippage. Back here it has a nice integrated contactor assembly, and it does offer circuit breakers right here on the lines that will automatically shut off the winch to prevent the motor from overheating. Does come with some mounting bolts, mentioned the wired remote, and a nice owner's manual, describe how everything operates and how it connects.

A few specs on this. Again, the rated line pull with just a single layer of wire rope around the drum is going to be 2,500 pounds. The rated line pull when you have a full drum of wire, it's going to be 1,678 pound capacity.The motor itself is a 12 volt DC motor, 600 Watts, 0.8 horsepower. The wire rope that's included that comes on here is 50 feet long, three sixteenths diameter. It's a high strength aircraft grade galvanized steel rope, comes with the hook and the hand saver strap.

Last thing I want to do is give you a few dimensions on this. The overall length of this, one end to the other is right at 16 and a half inches. The width of it, and when I do the width, I'm going to give you from this part all the way to the front of the roller fairlead, so the overall, it's going to be about nine inches at the widest part. And the height on it, if we rotate this back, it's going to be right about six inches tall. But that should do it for the review on the Bulldog wire rope utility winch with the roller fairlead and a 2,500 pound capacity.

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Electric Winch

  • Correct Winch Mounting Plate for Class I Hitch
    Yes, the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate Item # 6495 can also be used on the hitch on the back of your SUV. The issue here is that you have a Class I trailer hitch and the Draw-Tite Winch Mounting Plate # 6495 fits into 2" hitch receivers. A better fit for you will be the Bulldog Winch ATV Winch Mounting Plate for 1-1/4" Hitches # BDW20316.

  • Can Bulldog Utility Winch BD54FR Mount to Truck Bed
    The Bulldog Utility Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 2,500 lbs # BD54FR is not designed to fit directly into a truck bed; it may be possible though you will need to fabricate your own mounting system to bolt the winch on, as it has hole spacing of 3.66 inches apart on center, as you can see by the cutout I added. In regards to the cord, that is for the remote control, and that plugs directly into the winch itself. The winch is designed to be powered by a 12 volt battery. I have...

  • Quiet Electric Winch Options
    The Bulldog Utility Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 2,500 lbs # BD54FR, like any other winch with wire rope, will be somewhat noisy. For a wireless remote you can use # BD500527. You may be able to install your own rope in the Bulldog winch to make it somewhat quiet, but the motor will still make some noise. A better option may be the Bulldog Winch Powersports Series ATV Winch - Synthetic Rope - Hawse Fairlead - 2,000 lbs # BDW15010 which has the quiet synthetic rope. You can add...

  • Run Time, Cool Off Time, And Line Pull Rate Of Bulldog Utility Winch BD54FR
    I talked to my contact at Bulldog to get some information for you. The Bulldog Utility Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead - 2,500 lbs # BD54FR comes with a 50' rope which is 3/16" in diameter. There is not an exact answer when it comes to run time and cool off time since there are so many variables, however, Bulldog states that it is a good idea to run the winch for 3-5 minutes and allow for about 20-30 minutes to cool down. A good rule of thumb is to stop if the winch feels hot, and continue...
