Bulldog Winch ATV or UTV Snowplow Winch

This winch lets you raise and lower the snowplow blade on your ATV or UTV. The compact design makes it easy to mount in tight spaces, and it installs on the front frame of your ATV or UTV with a custom mounting plate (sold separately). It includes quick connects that make it easy to connect and disconnect power to the winch. And it has a hand-held rocker switch that allows you to power the polyester strap in and out from the seat of your ATV.

0.68-Horsepower Motor with Continuous Duty Cycle

Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch Motor

This winch features a 0.68-horsepower, 12-volt DC motor with 2,000 lbs of line pull. The permanent magnet motor has the same pull as a series-wound motor but is lighter and uses less current. It also has more windings around the core to generate more electromagnetic power than a standard permanent magnet motor. These additional windings and the 200-amp contactor - compared with the 60/80-amp relay switch found on most snowplow winches - enable you to continuously run the motor without the fear of it overheating.

The motor and gearbox are housed in the same side-mounted unit. The unit has built-in drain holes to release condensation generated by motor heat to prevent internal moisture build-up, and it has a rust-resistant black powder coat finish. The copper battery terminals and zinc-plated steel hardware are also corrosion resistant.

Power Unit with Sealed Contactor

Bulldog Winch Power Unit

The power unit transmits power from your ATV or UTV battery to the winch motor. There is an on/off switch on the front of the unit that lets you shut off the power to prevent accidental use. It has a rubber-sealed plug that won't let in water when the mini rocker switch is disconnected.

Bulldog Winch Contactor

The contactor - or solenoid - transmits power from the vehicle's battery to the winch motor. The 200-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.

Dynamic Brake

The dynamic brake uses resistance from the winch motor to control drum rotation. When the winch is pulling in or paying out the strap there is no resistance on the drum. When the power is stopped the drum does not rotate.

Since there is no physical brake device the winch is lighter and has a smaller profile than a winch with a mechanical braking system. This makes it easier to mount in places with limited space available.

Mini Rocker Switch with 8' Lead

Bulldog Winch Mini Rocker Switch

The hand-held mini rocker switch lets you control the winch from the seat of your ATV or UTV. It plugs into the sealed port on the power unit and unplugs for storage when not in use.

Nylon Strap

Bulldog Winch Nylon Strap

The 30" strap is made of high-strength nylon that is abrasion resistant, and it wraps around a solid steel drum. It is designed to easily lift a snowplow blade that weighs up to 600 lbs. And it's built to handle the constant spooling and unspooling required for a snowplow winch - unlike a wire rope that can fray or synthetic rope that can break.

Rugged Construction

BDW Winch Body

The winch is constructed of strong, durable materials that are designed to perform in cold, snowy weather. The motor and gearbox housing is made of corrosion-resistant powder coated steel, and the contactor is sealed to keep out water. The power unit is constructed of heavy-duty yet lightweight plastic. The steel tie bars and side frame drum supports help to create a strong and rigid winch body.


To install the winch on the front of your ATV or UTV you will need a suitable mounting location. Bolt or weld a custom mounting plate (sold separately) to the front frame on your ATV or UTV, then bolt the winch to the mounting plate using the included hardware.

The power unit includes a mounting plate and hardware for installation. Although the power unit can be mounted anywhere on your ATV or UTV, it typically mounts under the hood near the steering column. This will keep it protected from the elements and allow easy access to the on/off switch and remote plug.

The strap attaches to a pin or bolt on the back of your snowplow blade if one is available. Simply slide the pin or bolt through the sewn-in loop at the end of the strap. It can also attach to your snowplow blade with a bow shackle or a hook if no pin or bolt is available.

BDW Quick Connects

The power leads connect the winch's power unit to your ATV or UTV battery. A set of quick connects is included to let you easily disconnect the power leads when you need to remove the snowplow from your ATV or UTV.
