This Dutton-Lainson 2-speed, heavy-duty winch is designed for multipurpose horizontal pulling operations.


Bolted right on my 2004 24' Heritage Boat trailer. It pulls my 24' LSR Regal boat onto trailer with no problems, love the 2 speed. Durable and heavy duty. Would buy again. Makes it easier loading my boat, as I don't have to back the trailer in so far, this monster pulls the boat onto the bunks with ease.


This winch replaced a 20 y/o winch. It has functioned perfectly on my pontoon boat. I'm in my mid 70's and I can use this just fine. Thanks for your helpful suggestions, you're the best.


An excellent boat trailer winch


Exactly what I needed. Makes trailering my boat ridiculously easy. Great buying experience.


Winch works great, cable kinks to easy so I upgraded.

Been working good
Steve - 03/17/2022


Hand winch is strong, larger than expected, and built pretty heavy duty. One thing to note, the pawl (clicker) is only one sided, so it won't hold the load when letting cable out. It would be nice if it had an extra little tab to allow cranking in, cranking out, and neutral (line pull out) positions.

Also, I'm new to winches, but kind of wish it had a clutch on the cable to keep tension on the cable spool. When nothing is on the line, the tension on the spool unravels, causing the cable go all over the place, the first time i used it, I slightly pinched the cable (I had half the line payed out, and the slack on that part got bunched up when I started pulling in)

I went with a cable instead of strap so that I could use a snatch block pulley if i ever needed extra power, and also ordered a cable twice as long as what I needed to allow for looping back (using it on a utility/car trailer)

Looking back I should have went with the shorter cable so that the line would be all the way out when starting to winch. I might cut down the cable to a shorter length and eventually replace it with a strap. Another drawback i found with the cable is that it tends to wander all over the drum back over itself if you aren't careful causing a tangled mess, but I guess that happens on the power winches too.

Another accessory I wish they had was a heavy waterproof drawstring bag to slip over the winch when not in use. I made a removable pedestal using 2" receiver tube, so I plan to keep the winch indoors. but I really should grease up the cable and it would be nice to have a cover. (Might try to make a bag or have one made)

Overall I'm satisfied and the winch itself more than met my expectations. I was able to easily pull a 2003 Grand Cherokee up the ramps onto my trailer with one hand and single line.


Mounted winch to steel post on steep hill to pull dock out of Lake super heavy duty made the work effortless love the easy move handled from gear to gear would recommend this to anybody and everybody!

Just perfect!

This two-speed winch is very well built and appears to be very durable. The mechanisms operate easily. I am replacing a lower capacity, single speed DL boat winch that has served me well … I will be better able to wind up my Inboard Outboard fishing/ski boat with this more versatile winch. It was very easy to mount without changing anything on the trailer. I am grateful for excellent service etrailer provided in the ordering and shipping processes. Thanks!


Nice H/D winch. Replacing my 12 year old D/L winch.
Spring catch not engaging consistantly anymore and after the stitching in the strap pulling out and launching my 25' rig on the concrete boat ramp it is time for new stuff. This winch with new 5/16" s.s. wire rope cable and forged s.s. hook should eliminate that nightmare from happening again. USA made! Etrailer has the best commun. and service PERIOD. Thanks K.


Holding up very well


In my opinion it’s the only winch left on the market that is built with any strength. I tried some Chinese ones that claimed to be 2500# - complete garbage. The Dutton Lainson is serious. The only downside is it’s almost too strong - I have to be careful because this winch is so strong I feel it could start to pull the bow eye out of my boat.


So far seems like a sturdy and suitable replacement for my old boat trailer winch. I only needed 1800# capacity, but learned that at the time the 2500# model cost less than either the 1800# or 2000#. I like the two-speed operation. Received promptly as expected.


Great replacement for my original winch on my boat trailer. Fantastic customer service , and fast shipping like always. Price is unbeatable, thank you


Good heavy duty winch used for loading a two ton sailboat. Easy to shift and crank. The reversible ratchet allows letting back to help position the boat when it is not straight on the first haul.


Bought this to replace an Attwood winch that was rated for 2000 lbs. The Attwood winch required both hands to trailer my heavy 17' fiberglass boat and the handle was stripping out.

Mounted the Dutton-Lainson 2 speed winch in its place planning on having to use the 17.3:1 speed to for the final couple of feet. I was able to winch the the boat all the way 5.4:1 speed with a single hand plus I wasn't tired.

The winch is very solid and well constructed. Unlike the Attwood junk, the gears are welded and not riveted. Well worth the invested and its made in the USA.


This was my 1st purchase from etrailer and shopping with them has been great. I'm in the process of building a ramp to load and unload a 22' pontoon boat from water to shore to keep the toons looking good and for winter storage. I've made numerous phone calls with questions on different products to use and have received excellent help with professional guidance on this project.
So far I've gotten a winch, 6 sets of roller bunks and 12 galv. vee- brackets to support wooden bunks. All of this has arrived in a timely manner and the cost with free shipping is better then I could buy at any marine store. Some of these products aren't even stocked in this area. Will start construction on this soon and hope to post results when finished . Thanks to etrailer for their help.


Installed this on my utility trailer for pulling items up the ramps. Quick change handle for two speed operation is great feature. Heavy loads switch to low speed.


Perfect for what we use them for and to be honest we use them in an unconventional way. Our fleet of 94 flat bottom Kann boats have these mounted as well at the DL-15403 winches (matching 2500 lbs left side handle) up by the bow of the boat that helps us tie onto a barge or any other piece of marine equipment we may be trying to move at the time. Thy hold up to stress that we put them to as they are reeled out and winched up several times a day. I would recommend these to everyone!


These are great winches with lots of pulling power the 2 speed feature is excellent. I have a drill attachment that fits on the winch handle shaft making it a ease to raise my fish houe. Fast shipping and excellent customer service. Thanks etrailer.


The delivery time from etrailer was outstanding. The winch design appears to be flawless with one slight exception. The handle spring lock design for moving the handle from one gear ratio to the other might not handle the vibration of a rough road. With the possibility of it vibrating off of the shaft while in transit will definitely ruin someone's day. The quick answer to this issue would be to store the handle in the vehicle until ready for use. Problem solved.


Great communication. Order delayed due to COVID, but staff was clear on delays & challenges with delivery. Appreciated that.


On an Ice house a person needs a lef and a right hand winch, also diagram in illustration english version shows strap in the wrong position when cranking up
Hope you can send me one that will work on the Left hand side of my ice house

Jerry,Thank you for your review.If you need a left hand winch I would recommend part #DL15403. This winch still features 2 speeds with direct drive and has a capacity of 2,500 lbs.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 02/10/2018


Upgraded boat winch arrived in a timely manner, The Dutton Lainson winch model DL14825 quality is much better than my current winch. Will definitely be a return customer and recommend etrailer to my friends.


I ordered wrong size so I have to return it. Nicky was so efficient processing returns. Walk me through step by step. A+ and will highly recommend to other clients. Shipment was super fast and accurate. No damages on the item. Great job!


Bought one a year ago. Adding two more to my drop down ice house. Well built with no cheap parts. Holding up well to salty Minnesota winter roads

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 Have a Brake to Hold the Load
    The particular Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 that you referenced does not include a brake or hold function. For this you will want a brake winch. The linked article on hand winches will give you great background on the types offered and suitability for any given type of application, including brake winches.

  • What Benefit Is Higher Gear Ration For Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
    The 17.3:1 ratio is normally used when you have a heavier load or boat you want to winch in. Sort of like the gears on a bike. When going up a hill you put the bike in a highwer gear so it is easier to reach the top. when on a flat surface you drop it into a lower gear so it gets more power with less effort. The lower gear of 5.4:1 for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, part # DL14825 will probably work great for most of the time with your aluminum boat, but if you are ever on a steep incline...

  • How Long Is the TUFFPLATE Finish of a Dutton Lainson Winch Guaranteed Not to Rust
    The TUFFPLATE finish of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 has a zinc finish that is 3 times stronger than standard zinc plating so as far as corrosion resistance goes this would be your best option.

  • Winch Recommendation for Boat Trailer to Allow Boat to Easily Make it onto Trailer
    The higher capacity winch you go with will allow an easier crank than a lower one. A two speed winch like part # DL14825 will work great for what you are looking to do as it will give you the option to use the lower speed gear to move the boat when it's being difficult and then also allow you a faster speed if the boat is wanting to winch up easier.

  • Availability of Replacement Handle for Discontinued Shelby 5409 Winch
    From what I have found, your Shelby Trailer Winch 5409 is a single speed winch with a 2,100 lb capacity. This winch has been discontinued and unfortunately a replacement handle is no longer available. I recommend replacing it with a winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14825. This is a 2 speed winch with a 2,500 lb capacity. It also features a 5-year limited warranty.

  • Are the Gears in the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 Stamped or Cast
    The gears in the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 and # DL14825 that you referenced are indeed stamped. Do please note that these winches use multiple laminated layers of this stamped steel to form the gear train. This manufacturing technique provides greater strength than a single layer gear and also helps keep the manufacturing costs down.

  • Recommended Hand Winch with Strap to Replace DL2500A
    For the similar winch with strap, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs # DL14825 and then adding the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, 2" Wide x 25' Long - 4,000 lbs # DL24249. I've attached a couple videos to help.

  • Recommended Left and Right Hand Winch to Accommodate Stainless Steel Cable
    I have both a left and right hand crank hand winch that will work great for your application. The left hand crank # DL15403 and the right hand crank # DL14825 will both accommodate a stainless steel cable. They are both rated for 2,500 lbs and will feature a 2-speed direct drive.

  • Can Smaller Diameter But Longer Cable be Used with Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
    Since the max cable capacity of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 is 5/16" x 47' you can definitely use the 1/4" x 50' Cable # DL24104 but you may have to cut off some of the length for it to fit properly on the winch (as it is 3' longer than the recommended size cable). Please note that the winch has a max weight rating of 2,500 lbs so even though this cable is rated for 3,500 lbs since the winch has a lower rating that is what you are limited by.

  • Pontoon Trailer Winch with Wire Cable Recommendation
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs # DL14825 you asked from is able to use 5/16 inch by up to 47 foot wire cable. I recommend using the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 5/16" Diameter x 25' Long - 2,500 lbs # DL24102 with this winch.

  • Winch Strap Replacement For 25 Foot Mirage Boat
    For your replacement winch strap I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap # DL24250. This will work great to pull your boat onto the trailer and the full weight of the boat will not be at the strap as the bunk boards and water will support much of the weight. The length and bright color will help as well. This has a working load of 3,700 lbs and a break strength rating of 6,600 lbs.

  • 5000lb Trailer Coupler Recommendations for Hydra-Sport 22 Cubby Cab Boat That is 4500lbs
    For your trailer I would recommend using a coupler that has a 5,000 lb weight capacity like the Trailer Coupler 2 inch Ball 3 inch Channel Tongue (5,000 lbs.) by Dutton-Lainson, part # DL13897. I would recommend that you have your boat weighed to be sure that this # DL13897 with a 5,000 lb limit will be sufficient to haul your boat. The current coupler on your trailer is unsafe to use, and I would strongly recommend that you do not haul your boat on that trailer until you replace the coupler...

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Use Strap or Cable?
    Hi! The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 does not come with either strap or cable. You would need to get those separately with either Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook # DL24249 or Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24102; both the strap and the hook are 25' long.

  • Replacement for Shelby 5470 Trailer Winch
    Shelby has gone out of business and as such there are no replacement parts we can offer for your Shelby 5470 winch; due to that the best option is going to be a replacement winch.

  • Does Dutton-Lainson DL14825 Hand Winch Have a Neutral Play Out
    It does indeed. If you flip the pawl vertically toward the line spool, you can easily play out the line but be sure to avoid the handle because it will spin when the line is playing out. The winch can be used with a strap like # DL24249 or with 5/16 inch cable like # DL24102. I've linked to a product description video for the Dutton-Lainson # DL14825 2500 lb capacity hand winch.

  • Do Hand Winches Need Lubrication
