Video Transcript for Review of Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Brake Hand Winch - DL11001

Today we're taking a look at the Dutton Lainson hand winch, now this is a warm gear winch that's designed for heavy duty vertical lifting applications. With this, you can crank one direction to lift and then crank the other direction to lower. The load automatically holds when the reel stops turning. It does feature a hex drive design, so that's going to let you use a cordless drill with a 5/8 inch socket, or you can use the included socket head handle to operate the unit.The mating handle can be removed easily with no tools required, it just fits over and it's ready for use. We're looking at laminated high carbon steel gears, they're heat treated for longer life. We have the heavy gauge embossed steel base for extra strength.

I'll show you the bottom real quick. You can see the mount hole pattern right there. Mounting hardware not included.It does feature permanently lubricated bearings on the drive shaft, they're maintenance free. It has a powder coated copper bronze finish to resist rust and corrosion. Product's made in the USA.

Capacity is 2,000 pounds. When it came to the overall measurements, not including the handle, I took a measurement from the very back of the unit to the very front of the unit and got a measurement of about 7.5 inches. Side to side, including the hardware, measures about six inches wide, and then from the bottom of the unit to the top of the gear is about 5.5 inches, a little bit taller if you measure to the top of the attachment point for the handle.Then the handle will also add a little bit to the height measurement as well, measuring to here or to here. Really nice design. Again, it comes lubricated.

The base on the unit, so I took measurements of just the base, front to back, put ruler on that real quick so you can see where I was measuring from, measures about 5.5 inches. Then side to side, just the base, measures about 4.5 to 4.75 inches.Now, as you can see the cable is not included, but when it comes to the maximum cable length that this will accept or work with, you can go up to 82 feet. That's with a 7/32 inch diameter cable. You can go up to 59 feet with a 1/4 inch diameter cable, or you can go up to 49 feet with a 9/32 inch cable, but doing that option will require a special reel.That's going to do it for today's look at the Dutton Lainson hand winch.

Bought this hoist about a year ago to raise our kayaks out of the way in the garage. The hoist is high quality, relatively inexpensive, and has performed flawlessly. I especially like that it is a worm gear design meaning you can stop at any time and it will not try to unwind. Also, this particular one is designed with a socket drive; so, I can use my electric drill to raise and lower the kayaks. Etrailer has all the good stuff and is my go-to place for mechanical equipment. 325745

The winch continues to work well after a year. The design and quality is much admired by all who see the set-up.

I ordered this winch from etrailer because I bought two new ones from a harbor farbor and they were worthless. This winch is just what it says it is but they didn't tell You just how good this product really is. It has a laminated worm gear and the worm is set at the proper angle to make it run as smooth as it could be. No skipping or popping and very little effort to operate it. I am using it to raise a 10 meter antenna 48 feet in the air and it does it effortlessly and it is raised by leverage . This is the best worm drive winch that I have ever owned and I will be buying more of them. Thank You etrailer. 387503

This Winch is being used on a 50' crank-up tower. Its holding about 350 lbs now for a year. The two tower crank up sections, a ten foot mast of 1-1/4" conduit on top of a antenna rotator with a 26' boom 4 element 3 band beam antenna, a vertical 2 meter antenna, a Sloper antenna, and 3 coaxes and a rotor control cable and grounding. All supported by this winch. Good Job. 303622


Comments

The winch worked well for the time it was in service. The telescoping radio tower it was used on was destroyed by a storm in March 8 of this year, so it is currently not in service.

This winch has a lot of power, very smooth operation. It works great with my 1/2in battery powered drill. cable always winds perfect and tangle free. I use it to pull my 16ft jon boat out of the water on a makeshift ramp. the boat and motor is around 1000 lbs. its a very high quality winch and its made in the USA. 688319

Great product. It is very convenient that the worm drive is self braking. A bit slow because of it though. Detachable handle is handy when you need it out of the way. We set up a 5/8 socket on a wiggle wrench for faster movement. 681353

Great winch. You can count on it to work and work safely. Unlike the dangerous Harbour Freight one it replaced. I use it with a cordless drill attached to a crane, to lift my motorcycle in and out of the bed of my truck. I also used it, anchored to another crane to lift my barn trusses onto my barn. If you use it with the crank it will move slowly, but works quickly with the cordless drill. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. 565240

I have modified worm drive hand winches to accept a socket and they worked but apparently the gears were not hardened and would wear quickly even though I greased them thoroughly. This winch has hardened gears and the meshing of the two gears looks to be more precise. I searched everywhere and etrailer had the best price and free shipping. Haven't installed this winch yet but I'm pretty sure it will out-last the discount hardware store winch, many times over. Also I learned, Don't spin the drill fast because the gears will overheat causing wear. Slow and steady is much better than cranking by hand!!!!!!!! 502793


Comments

The winch is a year old and has shown No signs of wear!!! A huge difference in reliability over the cheaper winch I had previously installed. Great Quality winch, Period!!!!!!

I ALREADY HAVE TWO OF THESE FOR RAISING AND LOWERING MY DEER FEEDER BARRELS (350LBS). USING A 18 VOLT DRILL MAKES THE PROCESS EASY AND SAFE, WITH THE AUTO LOCKING FUNCTION. NOW I AM GOING TO USE ONE FOR RAISING AND LOWERING MY 40FT HAM RADIO TOWER. TOTALLY CONFIDENT IT WILL HANDLE THIS WITH EASE. I WILL REVIEW IT WHEN ALL IS UP AND GOING. BEST WINCH I HAVE EVER OWNED. 477902

After a year of using these to lower fill then raise 350lbs of corn on each of my feeders, they are outstanding! Only use my 24 volt cordless drill. Absolutely a great winch. I will never have another feeder without one.

Very high quality winch. I bought this for my car trailer to help roll cars up the ramp. I just received it yesterday so its not yet installed but looks like it will work great. Fast friendly service at etrailer. I think they wrote the book on customer service. 219421

by:

Winch works as described. I have 2 winches. One to crank up a 55' tower and the other to tilt over the tower for maintenance. Much easier to crank than the standard winch with the plus that I can use a drill motor. I use a 1/4" impact at low speed so as not to burn up the bushing. The service from etrailer has always been excellent. I have never needed tyo send anything back yet after a half dozen orders but the shipping has always been prompt and on time. 218862

Here is a picture made by combining two photos so both myself and my wife are depicted as we cooked a kettle of beans. It shows how the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch enables the safe and easy adjustment of elevation for regulating the rate of boiling in a cast iron kettle suspended above our fire pit. I ordered a second wench to make a similar system for a granddaughter who does much cooking over wood fire. 125942

Product is perfect. Arrived promptly and is high quality. I needed something that would not free wheel off the spool. The worm drive solved that. I also wanted something that I could run with a socket drive and large drill motor. This hoist did all that. Can't think of anything negative. 106141



- DL11001
by:

There was a little bit of difficulty getting the cable installed on the winch but otherwise the installation was very straightforward. Being able to use a drill to operate the winch has the winching process very easy to complete. The worm gear works very smoothly and is well built. I have been very satisfied with this product. 105532



- DL11001
by:

The packaging was a little funky. There was grease on the instructions. There was not a clear way for the cable to get tied to the spool (for someone that doesn't deal with this everyday). It wasn't hard to figure out how to attach the cable; I don't know if I did it right, but it works. Bottom line: The product is as good as it depicts, and with the drill attachment, life is good and easy... Just what the winch was designed to do. etrailer.com was great! 64233

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Winch?


  • Hand Winch Recommendation that has a Hex Drive for a Drill
  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 does not have a hex head that is fixed and would allow you to use an electric drill attachment. For that I recommend using worm gear winch # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out. Worm gear winches are brake winches so when you stop turning the drum, either with the handle or a drill, it will hold the load. There is also no minimum load required. This winch can accept up to a 82...

  • Weight Capacity of Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL11001 Using 1/4 Inch Cable
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL11004 referenced in your question is actually designed for use with a polyester strap and not cable. For the Dutton-Lainson 2,000 pound hex gear hand winch that uses cable you will want part # DL11001 instead. This winch can definitely be used with 1/4 inch cable and the drum can handle up to 59 feet of it. I spoke with my contact at Dutton-Lainson and did verify that the drum hub diameter is 1-1/4 inches and...

  • Recommended Winch for Lifting Platform in Garage
  • While you certainly could use a worm gear winch such as # DL11001, I recommend using the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL10976, which is designed for what you are trying to do. This winch can be mounted to your ceiling and you can use Hex Shaft # DL406102 which will allow a drill to crank it, and you'll also want Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24045. This winch has a capacity of 2,000 lbs which will be more than enough for your 300 lbs of gear.
    view full answer...

  • Is there a Wire Rope/Cable that is Between 25 and 50 Feet Long for Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Winch
  • Dutton Lainson winch # DL11004 is designed to accept a strap and the longest strap available is 25 feet. Since that is not going to be long enough I recommend looking at a different worm gear winch such as # DL11001. However, the wire ropes for these winches go from 25 feet up to 50 feet with nothing in between. It is better to have too much line than not enough so if you go with this winch I recommend wire rope # DL24104.

  • Recommended Hand Winch That Will Not Free Wheel When Not Cranking
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL15440 does have a reversible ratchet, however without engaging it the winch is allowed to free wheel. Another option is the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11001. This winch will automatically stop the reel whenever you stop cranking. Its capacity isn't as high, at 2,000 pounds, however it is still plenty to lift the body of your Vette.

  • What Style of Hand Winch Can be Powred In and Out with Power Drill
  • The only hand winches we offer that can have a drill attached to them for operation are worm gear winches like part # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out.

  • Can the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive # DL11001 Be Mounted Vertically
  • Yes, the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive # DL11001 that you referenced could be mounted vertically like on the post that you referenced. I attached a review video for this winch for you to check out. For cable you might also be interested in the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24104.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Lifting Kayak to Ceiling
  • We do have some brake winches that have no minimum load requirements, but they won't have enough spool capacity for 50 feet of 1/4 inch rope. I do have a worm gear winch that would work for you, part # DL11001. The winch has a 49 foot drum capacity for cable up to 9/32 of an inch. Since that's a tad larger than a 1/4 inch, your 50 feet of rope would fit. In lieu of the handle, you could use a heavy duty variable speed drill with a 5/8 inch socket. This would make raising an lowering...

  • Recommended Brake Winch for 16-Foot Car Hauler Trailer
  • The best type of hand winch for your car trailer application is a brake winch. These provide a self-locking holding action to prevent a runaway load. Their planetary gears deliver easy and efficient cranking. A cost-effective option is the MaxxTow Positive Lock Hand Winch # MT70176. This is rated for 1000-lbs, but it will be fine for your rolling load, and it includes a 25-foot strap. If you prefer a heavier-duty winch consider the 2K-rated Dutton-Lainson # DL11001 and the cable/hook...

  • Recommended Hand Winch For Hoisting Piece of Steel Sculpture
  • You're certainly on the right track. The handle on a worm gear winch would indeed rotate in such a way that it wouldn't hit the tree. A worm gear also has the advantage of not freewheeling when you let go of the handle, so the load won't get away from you. The Dutton-Lainson # DL10974 worm gear winch you mentioned is a good choice, but the one problem with worm gear winches is the gear ratio. 40:1 is a common gear ratio for a worm gear winch. This means that the handle will need to be...

  • Does the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11001 Have a Brake and Reverse Function
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch, part # DL11001, is a single speed brake winch for use with cable. The brake function is when the cranking is stopped the reel automatically stops. It can be cranked in reverse. There is no free wheel mode, so to it will have to cranked in reverse to let out the cable. The handle has a hex drive so a 1/2 inch variable speed drill can be used to speed up the cranking process. It has a weight capacity of 2,000 lbs. The cable you will need for the...

  • Can Two Cables be Used with the Dutton-Lainson Split-Reel Worm Gear Winch # DL10972
  • The Dutton-Lainson Split-Reel Worm Gear Winch, # DL10972, was designed to use one cable through both sides of the drum. The problem that you will run into when trying to feed two cables through the drum is that the side of the drum furthest away from the gear does not have a way to secure the cable. I have attached a photo showing how a cable is fed through this drum. For your situation, I recommend running straps from both corners of your trailer and hook them to a single hook from...

  • Winch Recommendation for Lifting a 200 lb Boat 10 or 12 ft With a Drill Option
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch, # DL11001, will work great to hoist your 200 lb boat. The hex head allows you to use either the included handle or a heavy-duty 1/2 inch drill. Worm gear winches are great for hoisting objects because they do not have a free wheel option and the load cannot reverse the direction of the winch. Dutton-Lainson recommends using 9/32 inch diameter cable.

  • Worm Gear Winch Recommendation for RIB Inflatable Dingy on a Yacht
  • For a worm gear winch that you can use with a strap instead of a cable I recommend # DL11002. You could then use strap # DL24242. You will need to add the hex shaft, # DL406102, in place of the standard shaft to use a variable speed drill with the winch. Worm gear winches are slow and you are bound to get tired moving the load even a few feet so a drill is the way to go. Your 18 volt drill should be more than enough to lift the load. I do not recommend an impact driver because it is...

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11001 Come with a Cable
  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL11001 does not come with a cable because they want to leave the options open for people to choose the size and length that works best for them. As-is this winch can accept a 7/32 inch cable up to 82 feet long or a 1/4 inch cable up to 59 feet long. For 7/32 inch we have: Wire rope # FWC7500100 rated for 5,600 pounds and it is 50 feet long Wire rope # DL24045 rated for 2,500 pounds and it is also 50 feet long Wire rope # DL24047 rated for 2,500 pounds...

  • Winch Recommendation for Use as Ceiling Hoist for Loading Heavy Kayak
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch, # DL11001, will work great to hoist your 230 lb boat. The hex head allows you to use either the included handle or a heavy-duty 1/2 inch drill. Worm gear winches are great for hoisting objects because they do not have a free wheel option and the load cannot reverse the direction of the winch. For wire rope you would need the part # DL24100.

  • Thanks for the photo. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs # DL14825 you asked the question from is set-up much differently. The style of winch you have is more like a worm gear winch # DL11001. The older mechanical trailer winches like you have unfortunately do not have replacement parts readily available, I can't determine the winch you have pictured. My recommendation is to move to the more modern electric trailer winches like...

  • Will the Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Winch # DL11001 Lift a Dock Out of the Water
  • The Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch, # DL11001, can lift up to 2,000 lbs, so it should have no problem lifting your dock out of the water, assuming the dock does not weigh more than 2,000 lbs. This winch also comes with a hex head drive that will allow your husband to use a variable speed drill to lift the dock rather than cranking the winch by hand. Winches are not designed to keep a load suspended for extended periods of time. If the dock is going to be suspended during the winter,...

  • Recommended Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch 1500 lbs. # DL14996
  • I have a recommendation for you, but unfortunately we do not have a Worm-Gear Hand Winch that has a free wheel option. The closest winch we offer to fit your needs is the Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch with TuffPlate Finish # DL14996. This winch is self locking, has a weight capacity of 1,500 lbs. and has a free wheel option. The handle sits on the side and is not reversible. It does need at least 75 lbs. for this winch to operate properly and the handle is included with this...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation for Building a Homemade Log Arch
  • You could use just about any type of hand winch you would like to build a log arch. You will need to determine the capacity that you will need to lift the logs you will be cutting. Having been around a farm most of my life, I would think that a 2,000 lb capacity winch would be sufficient, since you will not need to lift the whole weight of the log with it and if you are cutting fire wood you could reduce the length of the log. I posted a link to all of the 2,000 lb winches that we stock...

  • Will the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch # DL11001 Accept a Strap
  • We do have a worm gear winch that will accept a strap, however the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch, # DL11001, is for use with a cable or rope only. Instead, take a look at the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch, # DL11002. This winch is basically the same winch as # DL11001 that you referenced, but it has a drum that was designed to accept the bolt that secures the strap to the winch. If you need a strap, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap, # DL24242.

  • Recommended Hand Winch To Raise And Lower 500-600 lb LED Sign
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Two Speed with Direct Drive - 3,200 lbs, # DL15440 will work for your application very nicely, however I have another option for you to consider. I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive Handle - 2,000 lbs, # DL11001, which uses a worm gear to more smoothly operate the raising and lowering of your sign. This winch will allow you to use an electric drill for faster and easier use and will allow you to have...

  • What is Safe Weight Capacity of Dutton Lainson Winch # DL11001
  • The safe weight capacity for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL11001 that you referenced is 2,000 lbs. As long as you stay under that weight you'd have nothing to worry about. These are rated somewhat conservatively so that you'd never have an issue if you stay under capacity, but you don't ever want to exceed 2,000 lbs with this winch.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Low-Weight Lifting of Outdoor Grill
  • The best type of winch for your application is a worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive # DL11001. I recommend this over a brake winch because it does not have a minimum load requirement, it allows you the option to use a power drill to operate it if you like, and it needs no mechanism to stop gear movement. With a worm gear winch unless you are cranking the handle (or using a drill) the winch simply cannot rotate. This is the best type of safety feature...

  • Availability of Winch that Can Lift 550 lb Load 37 Feet in Air
  • The Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch # DL24844 certainly has the capacity for lifting a 550 lb load, but it really doesn't have the spool size available for a 37 foot long lift so that's where it would be an issue. We have the Dutton Lainson worm gear winch part # DL11001 which can have a longer 50 foot long cable like part # FWC7500100 installed on it that would work well for you.

  • Recommended Worm Gear Winch for Tilting 2000-lb Well House
  • While the 1.8K-rated Dutton Lainson winch # DL15502 has enough capacity for tilting your well house, in your particular application of using a winch to raise one side of a 2000-lb well house to allow servicing I recommend a worm gear winch for the most safety. Worm gear winches CANNOT reverse the direction of pull, meaning that the person working underneath that well house will have the peace of mind of knowing they will get to wake up in the morning. Dutton-Lainson winch # DL11001 has...
