Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Standard Hand Winch - DL14825 Review

Today were going to review part number DL14825. This is the Dutton Lainson hand winch with the tough plate finish. This is a true speed winch with direct drive. This winch does have a weight capacity of 2500 pounds. It is a two-speed winch that will have a low gear and a high gear. To operate the different speeds you will attach the handle to each gear.

This winch does use high carbon steel heat treated gears and it does have permanent lubricated bearings on the hub. The handle is a quick attach handle that will allow you to change from high speed to low gear easier. It installs by it has a you just push the bottom and it will allow to attach and detach from the speed. This one is the low speed, so you just push that and it will slide on and lock in place. It is a reversible ratchet design which means when it is in the low speed gear you crank it in a counter-clockwise position.

That is for low speed. If you want to move it to high speed, again you just push the bottom of this handle, slide it off and then push it and slide it on to the high speed. The high speed will crank. To remove it, again, you just push it, slide it off. The finish on this winch is a zinc tough plate finish, which is a yellow chromate finish that has three times the corrosion resistance of your standard zinc plated chrome finish.

This part does have a five year limited warranty. It is made in the U.S.A. Just a few features Ill show you on this. This one does come with a manual hand brake, and the hand brake is operated by strap which goes around a drum on this lower gear rod. This ratchet part, when you push it into the up position will allow the drum to freewheel, and by pushing down on this manual handbrake will break the drum.

When you push it down it locks it up. As the line is freewheeling out you can control the line output by pushing back on this manual handbrake. Well click it into the down position, which will engage the ratchet gears and again this is a demonstration of low gear. Now the low gear has the gear ratio of 17.3:1. What that basically means is that to rotate this hub-drum one revolution it will take 17.3 revolutions of the handle. If we put it on the high speed this has a gear ratio of 5.4:1. What that will mean is when you crank it, it cranks in the reverse direction which is clockwise. To move this gear one revolution the handle would move 5.4 revolutions. This winch can be used with a wire cable. The wire cable size would be 5/16 inch diameter. This drum can hold up to 47 feet of wire cable. This can also use a two-inch wide strap, like a nylon strap and it can hold up to 38 feet of strap on this hub-drum. The hub-drum diameter, which is this part right here where the cable or strap will layer up against has a diameter of 1.18 inches. Again, that should do it for part number DL14825.

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. 488275

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. 31192

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. 440367

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. 142863

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. 545846

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. 402067

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. 359503

  • 2-Speed Hand Winch That Takes 25-Foot Strap
  • The Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed 2-Speed Trailer Winch # FW32000101 can accept a 2-inch x 20-foot winch strap but not a 25-foot. The more layers of strap or rope that are on a winch drum the less the winch's capacity is. A 2-speed hand winch that can take a 25-foot strap is the 2500-lb-rated Dutton-Lainson # DL14825 which can use 25-foot strap # DL24249.

  • Boat Winch Recommendation for a 4,500 lb Boat
  • When it comes to choosing a winch for a boat trailer, there are a few general rules we can use. The boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1. With good rollers and short winching distances, the ration can increase to 3 to 1 and with wooden bunks and long winching distances, you will want to reduce the capacity to 1 to 1. So basically, you will want to look at the type and condition of the bunks on your trailer to choose the best winch. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, # DL14825,...

I spoke with my contact at Fulton and he does not recommend using 5/16 inch cable on this drum. For a similar hand winch that can use 5/16 inch cable I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825. This direct drive, heavy-duty winch has a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds and the drum can handle 47 feet of 5/16 inch cable. It also features a Zinc Tuffplate...

This winch can be fitted either with a 25-foot strap # DL24249 or a 25-foot cable # DL24102. You may care to refer to the linked article on hand winches. We do not have stainless-steel winches.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. The warranty information for this winch is as follows: Dutton-Lainson Company will, at its option, repair or replace free-of-charge any parts or parts found to be defective in material or workmanship under normal use for the period of five (5) years from the original purchase date...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation for a 5,500 Pound Capacity Single Car Hauler Trailer
  • You can ask as many questions as you want, no problem! So, first, yes, you can use a pulley block to double the capacity of a winch at half the speed so you will not have to worry about that. With a rolling load though you may not have to. A rolling load, using a 2500 pound winch up as steep a grade as 45 degrees the winch capacity is 3,225 pounds at the first layer or so of wire rope on the drum. At a 26 degree incline you are looking at a capacity of 4,650 pounds. I have included...

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.

This would be the style of winch I would recommend for your application. For a cable you'd then want the part # DL24102 which is 25 feet long. You'd have to attach the winch to the top of your post as the bottom of the winch is the mounting bracket. I wish we...

  • I recommend part # DL14627 which is a Dutton-Lainson winch rated for 1,800 pounds to replace your 1,700 lb Shelby 5407B winch. The drum can handle up to a 9/32" x 58' cable or a 38' strap, is made in the USA, and comes with a 5-year limited warranty. This winch features permanently lubricated bearings, high carbon steel gears, and a Zinc TUFFPLATE finish for corrosion resistance. Finally it also bolts onto the same mounting bracket as your existing winch, making for easy installation....

  • Boat Winch Recommendation for a 20ft Pontoon Boat With No Rollers
  • When it comes to choosing a winch for a boat trailer, there are a few general rules we can use. The boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1. With good rollers and short winching distances, the ratio can increase to 3 to 1 and with wooden bunks and long winching distances, you will want to reduce the capacity to 1 to 1. When your're loading and unloading much of the weight is supported by the water, which will lighten the load. However, it is better to go with a winch with higher...

  • Why Does Winch Handle Rotation Change Direction When changing Speeds
  • Fulton 2-speed winch # F142424 DOES have a change in handle rotation direction for each of its two speeds. You can see this in the linked video. This is also true for Dutton-Lainson 2500-lb Hand Winch # DL14825 which uses two separate shafts, one for each speed. This winch does not include the strap but with it you can use # DL24249. I checked many of our 2-speed winches and they all have this reverse-direction cranking.

  • Does the Crank Handle of the Fulton 2 Speed Trailer Winch Disconnect?
  • The Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch - Rope or Strap - 2,600 lbs # F142412 does not have the quick disconnect feature. You would need to remove the handle using a wrench or socket. The 2 speeds have a lever change instead of the handle location change like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs # DL14825. I've attached videos to assist.

  • 2-Speed Winch and Strap Recommendation for Winching Boat Into Boat House
  • For your application I would go with a 2 speed winch to give you the ability to slow the winch down when you need more lifting power or speed it up when the angle is quite as bad. The Dutton Lainson part # DL14825 would be a great option as it has a 2,500 lb capacity and 2 speeds. It also has a max strap length of 38 feet. Longest strap we have though is 25 feet like the part # FWS20HD0200. Let me know if that would be long enough as you said around 30 feet.

  • 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.
