WOW! This winch is just what I wanted really great! Although back ordered it was worth the wait. Thanks for carrying the exact product that I wanted. I will definitely recommend your Company for winches that my friends and family want. Thanks for the great selection and keep doing the job that you are doing

After one year, it works really great! Should I ever need another one, your the place to go to, as Ive told all of my friends and relatives. Have a happy new year.
Real - 12/29/2014


put this baby on my single bale hauler that had a cheapo winch that wore out after the first year of use, now I have a rock solid winch that cranks up a 1200 lb bale with ease, love it!!!

Used this for over a year now to move a lot of bales and its still working like a champ!
Thomas L - 09/24/2019


Bolted easily to the trailer. Have used one time so far and it did a great job pulling the boat onto the trailer. Time will tell how this will hold up but so far no complaints.

Still working great after a year. Taking boat out for fist time next weekend.
Tony S - 05/05/2018


I ordered a boat wench. Product works great. Prices are reasonable and company was fair, competitive and courteous!


Great winch. Gearing is set up to give you a smooth easy pull. Makes a difference for us older guys. Beats the Fulton I had hands down

Everything still working great. Remember, I live in a part of the world where the lake water is soft for only 8 months of the year

  • Trailer Winch Recommendation with a Handle that Can be Mounted on Either Side
    The Dutton-Lainson winch # DL14521 handle cannot be moved to the opposite side. But take a look at # DL14527. You can move the handle to the other side with this winch. The only difference is that the handle on this winch is bolted on where as the other one has a quick release that is not bolted on.

  • Trailer Winch Recommendation with a Handle that Can be Mounted on Either Side
    I believe the best option you have would be to get a Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14527. This winch can have the handle mounted on either side of the winch, has a 1,600 lb capacity and gets bolted on. The Dutton Lainson Winch # DL14521 that you referenced cannot have the handle switched because it is a two-speed winch. I attached an FAQ article on hand winches for you to check out also.

  • How To Release Cable from Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch
    Since the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11011 that you referenced is a worm gear winch, there really isn't a way to quickly unspool the cable. To extend the line you would turn the handle one direction, and then to retract the line you would turn the handle the opposite direction. Because of the way the worm gear winch works, the cable cannot be pulled out to unwind the cable. The handle must be turned to release the cable. I have attached a review video of this winch for you.

  • Can Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DL14527 Be Freewheeled Or Used In Reverse?
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14527 you were looking at can be freewheeled to allow you to quickly take out line, or the better option for backing down your boat is reversing the ratchet so that you can let the boat go back in a slow, controlled manner. For marine applications like yours I recommend using a strap such as the # DL24249 as it will not scratch up your boat should it rub against it, and will also not rust like a steel cable.

  • Recommended Hand Winch For 3/8 Wire Cable
    Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 will allow you to position your dock safely. This unit is rated to handle up to 3200 lbs. The drum storage on this unit is a maximum 3/8" x 30' of wire rope. The thickest cable that we carry that will work with # DL15440 is # DL24100 which is 25 feet long and 1/4 inches in diameter.

  • Hand Winch that Can Use 1/4 Inch Vinyl Coated Cable
    We don't carry a winch that will hold 80 feet of 1/4 inch vinyl wire. The closest we come is the # DL14527 and # DL14521 which will handle up to 58 feet of 1/4 inch cable. Or there is # DL15403 which can use a 5/16 inch cable that's 47 feet.

  • Comparing Strap and Wire Cable for Use with Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
    As long as the strap or wire cable you are using is rated properly for your winch, either one will work well with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14527 that you referenced. Using a strap or cable will come down more to personal preference. The wire cable will allow you to have a longer lead and will not offer any amount of give. Using a strap can limit the length of the lead. If you will be winching items that need to have the lead wrapped around them, the strap...

  • Upgraded Winch Recommendation With Same Mounting Dimensions As Current Winch
    The closest I can come to the same mounting holes you have for your DL1402A winch is part # DL14527. This is a 1,600-lb pulling winch and it has very similar mounting hole locations. I have attached dimensional drawings for the DL1402A and the # DL14527 winch you can check out. The mounting holes are nearly identical and I am sure the # DL14527 will work great for you. This winch does not come with the cable. For a cable I recommend part # DL24104. If you prefer a strap for the winch...

  • 2 Inch Wide Winch Strap Option For Shelby 1,400 lb Winch
    We may have an option that works as a replacement strap, though since Shelby is out of business we can't verify a fit. But we do have a 2 inch wide strap with a bolt that has the capacity you need for your 1,400 lb capacity Shelby 5405: - Winch Strap with Hook - 2" x 15' - 2,600 lbs # DL6148 This is a 15 foot strap and uses a winch bolt that measures 3" long and 3/8" in diameter; hopefully you can use that and compare it to your strap to see if it will work.

  • Recommended Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch to Use with Ratcheting Handle
    I reached out to my contact at Dutton-Lainson and she said that there is not a ratcheting handle available that's compatible with the DL1402A model Hand Winch # DL15303. For one that can be used with a ratcheting handle a higher-rated winch is needed such as the excellent Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14527 that features a 1,600 pound weight capacity. With this particular winch you can replace the handle with the Ratcheting Handle # DL70371.

  • Looking For Winch For Jet-Ski Trailer Where Handle Can Be Swapped to Other Side of Winch
    The lowest capacity hand winch we offer that the handle is easily changeable would be the Dutton-Lainson # DL14527. The folks at Dutton-Lainson have told us that this winch is capable of being modified. The drum, its shaft, the gear shaft and pawl shaft would all need to be removed, and reversed. The gear shaft is held in place by both a nut and an e-clip that would need to be removed. I have labeled these parts in a photo I have edited for you. In other words, some dis-assembly would...

  • Using Wire Cable on Fulton 1500 lb Capacity Winch F142201
    The winch you referenced, part # F142201 is only compatible with synthetic rope or a strap, wire cable isn't recommended. For a similar winch that can be used with wire cable, go with the Dutton-Lainson # DL14527. The winch can be used with either cable or a strap, which aren't included with the winch. If you want the strap, order part # DL24249 or part # DL24104 for the wire cable.
