Video Transcript for Review of Dutton-Lainson Electric Winch - Car Trailer Winch - DL25220

Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're going to take a look at this Dutton-Lainson StrongArm 12-volt DC electric winch with the remote. Now this StrongArm 12-volt DC electric winch is for your vehicle or also for boat trailer use. Has a 3000 pound capacity. Uses a power in, power out controlled, freewheeling clutch.

Has a dynamic motor brake and an automatic mechanical friction brake. Does come with the 20 feet of 2" wide extra heavy-duty polyester strap with the snap hook.The clutch lever on the side here, this allows for a nice smooth load control and easy strap removal. The clutch lever on this winch is spring-loaded so then it returns to the engaged position when it's released. The lever will, however, remain in the freewheeling position if you rotate it completely forward to freewheel. Right up at the top here, it says engage gear, so right now it's back here.

So that means it's engaged, you can operate it with the remote.Up here it says freewheel, so if you push it all the way up, and you could hear it click into place, that means you can pull out as much as you need. The nice thing about it is it is spring-loaded, so you can actually, as you start pushing this up to freewheel it, you can actually control how much you freewheel by just using this lever. And then when you let it go, it'll automatically go back to the off position, to the engage position. So again, unless you push it completely up, you can actually control your freewheeling with this control lever.This winch is powered by your vehicle battery. It uses the included wiring harness right here, plugs right into the back right here.

Has a 25 foot positive battery wire and eight foot ground wire. The motor on this is a high torque 12 volt DC motor, has the circuit-breaker overload protection. Now the handheld remote right over here comes with this 10 foot long cord, and all you have to do is match up the four plugs here. One pin is smaller than the other three, so you just line it up. Once you get the smaller one lined up, you just plug it in, and then with it plugged in, you can operate in and out here with the toggle switch.

And then if you need to remove it, just unplug it like that, very simple.Does include this emergency crank handle in case of power loss. So if you don't have any power, you can actually pop this button right off the side here, stick that in there and then crank it manually. This part is made in the USA. Does come with this nice owner's manual that'll describe how it operates. A few notes on this. This winch is built for horizontal pulling applications only. For vertical lifting applications, a winch with no clutch lever is always required. So you don't want to use this for vertical lifting applications because of this clutch lever. And this winch has a maximum run time of about four minutes. But that should do it for the review on the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm 12-volt DC electric winch with the remote.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Electric Winch


The trailer winch is a huge help in allowing me to load my boat onto my trailer, especially this year (summer 2022) with water levels in most Minnesota lakes very low. The low water levels prevents the boat from floating up on the trailer in many cases - Muscle is required to pull the boat onto the trailer. This electric winch provides the muscle and saves my 65 year old body from the task.

I power the winch with a 12 volt jump starter and I've used it approximately 60 times thus far without problem. I keep the jump starter in the back of my SUV and then hook it up when I'm ready to load my boat on the trailer. This saves the trouble of wiring the car for the winch and it works perfectly.

Why 3 stars? Because the wiring at the connection from the remote cable to the winch was poorly done and failed within 1/2 year. I had to redo the 3 connections at the end of the remote cable and the 3 connections going into the winch. Very poor job by Dutton-Lainson connecting the wires to the connectors - Inexcusable for a $500 item.

I had a couple questions while installing the winch and etrailer was very helpful in answering those questions. This is why I buy from etrailer and not elsewhere. They both charge a similar price and the technical support that etrailer provides makes it a no brainer - I will always buy from etrailer.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Electric Winch


Put this winch on my Ranger 620 boat trailer a year ago and love it! Haven't had a single problem and it helps trailering when I fish alone. I ran power and ground from my truck battery to a back bumper plug, and have a separate removable cable (shown in pic) to connect truck plug to the winch plug. Grounding to the truck didn't work for me. I have another spare cable and plug rolled up and attached to my trolling motor battery for when my buddies drive. Winch prevents power loading and drawing sand into the motor. DL24055 adapter plate was needed and I put a coupler lock up through the middle of the winch to prevent theft and I bought a cover (shown in pic) to keep the rain out. etrailer sales and support are absolutely fabulous! They helped me figure all this out.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Electric Winch


I purchased this winch to replace a Fulton K2550 manual winch on my ham radio tower. My tower is 54 ft tall when extended and 21 ft when retracted. It takes about 170 turns of the winch to raise/lower the tower. I removed the hand winch and placed the D-L SA9010AC winch in the existing mounting holes. I like this winch since it comes with a stainless hub since it will be used outside. This winch has a 2700 lb load rating. I am lifting around 700 lbs. This winch comes with no cable or freewheeling clutch. I reused the 1/4" stainless cable on the winch. I raised the tower and it took 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Lowering took 2 minutes. Well within the maximun run time of 3 minutes. The cable length winched was 17 ft. I have raised and lowered the tower several times to work on the antenna's and it worked properly every time. Attached are several pictures of the installation. I already recommended this winch to another ham operator.


Comments
I too am considering this winch. I have a US towers 455, about the same height you reference, that came with a Fulton 1550 and I have upgraded to a 2550 and then a 3000. But still takes too much effort. So my question is: are you still happy with this winch? How long have you had it? Any issues at all?Thanks,
-- comment by: Fred S - 07/30/2014
Hi Fred,Yes, I am still happy with the winch. It has been on a couple months so far. Only comment I forgot was, the optional cover for the winch is very snug when you have to keep the remote and gfi plug covered. I think I will be making a separate waterproof cover for those two parts so the winch cover will fit better
-- comment by: Joer S - 08/01/2014
Actually, I have become dissatisfied with the Fulton 3000. I tried attaching a Hawg drill like so many have suggested. It worked the first summer, but after a winter exposure, the drill tore it up this spring. I have spent the last few weeks investigating motorized winches and finally ordered the Stong Arm Dutton-Liason. It looks very much like a 2550 with a cover and ac motor and is stainless mostly. It hasnt come yet so I will let you know next year how it is doing.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Electric Winch


I am a 77 year old man and having to hand winch my small sailboat up on a shore ramp that I have. It was getting to be a bit much, so I decided to look into a 12volt winch. The Dl25200 fit the bill, works great. I have a 12volt battery next to it and a 10 , watt solar charger to keep the battery up, I hope. Time will tell. The service at etrailer was great, good price and fast shipping. Thanks

Review from a similar StrongArm in Electric Winch


I just used it for the second time on my 19 ft Lund boat works great! Could not believe it bolted to the same bolt holes of easy load trailer crank wrench.

Works great. I use it on a 19 foot Lund Impact and a roller trailer without a problem. I recommend this product.


Comments
Great on a boat trailer. Makes loading a breeze. A wireless remote would make this winch even better. Currently in use with a 19 foot Lund boat on a Shorelander roller trailer.

To whom it may concern,

The power
cable that came with the winch is 4' short. It was mounted on the front of a boat trailer and I have a full size pick up.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Electric Winch


I had to grind a little bit off the gussets on the mounting plate on my Tracker trailer to mount the winch but the bolt pattern was perfect. The electric cable that was provided with the winch wasn't quite long enough for my 4 door F150 so I used my wife's Explorer with the cable provided and got a longer cable and fuse for my pickup and then put a plug at the rear of both vehicles and a plug to the winch so I can use either vehicle. The winch pulled our 16'Tracker boat up on the trailer easily and I discovered you had tighten the gear locking mechanism quite snug or it would slip. I noticed the pulling belt on the winch is not quite as heavy as the one on my hand winch and I plan on swapping it out. Other than that, I am happy with my purchase.

Performs well. Cable does fray easily if there is any slack. Would be better with a strap.
