Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Standard Hand Winch - DL15103 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Dutton-Lainson, single speed hand winch with the tough plate finish and 1,100 pound weight capacity. Now, this standard duty winch is designed for horizontal pulling. It's ideal for boat trailers and other pulling applications. It has this ratcheting handle with the nice ergonomic grip. It does use a high carbon steel gear. It does have the zinc tough plate finish on it.Now, the tough plate finish has three times the corrosion resistance of standard zinc plating and 30% great corrosion resistance when compared to powered coating.

This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this, the gear ratio is 3.7 to 1 and what that's telling you is it'll take three point seven revolutions of the handle for one revolution of the drum.It does have a fully lubricated shaft right down here from the factory. Diameter on that hub or that shaft is seven-eighths of an inch. The maximum drum capacity, if you're using cable, it would use a 3/16th diameter cable, 79 feet in length. It does come with the included cable keeper hardware.

I've already attached it you can see to the drum. It's all the hardware, when you install your cable, that is what will hold it into place.Now, if you do use a strap, it's a two inch wide strap, 29 feet in length. The handle length which will be measured from the center here to the center here, is seven inches. A few measurements on the base. The base length is going to be five inches.

The width on the base is three and a half inches wide. If you notice, there are multiple holes for mounting this.Capacity again is 1,100 pounds and just to show you how this operates, you can see you just crank it, clockwise direction. Then if you want to release the drum, you can see there's a ratchet pull right here that if you push that ratchet pull down, that'll release the drum and then you can see it'll go in either direction. And then when you click it back on, then you can see it's in the cranking direction.But that should do it for the review on the Dutton Lainson single speed hand winch with the tough plate finish and 1,100 pound weight capacity.

The winch has held it's finish. no rust noted after a year. Mine is mounted to an antenna pole to lift the 25' mast. Nice addition to my project. 597083

I ordered 2 winches on the Friday before memorial day at 6:30pm and received an email from George less than two hours later stating he already shipped my items and upgraded my shipping to 2-day for free. I received my winches by 6pm the day after memorial day and had them both installed in less than an hour. Great products and great customer service. Thank you, George. 386962

Opened the box and was really satisfied with the quality. I shopped the big box stores and all they had were cheap made in China products. Thanks for being Made in USA!!! I won't have to tie my boat tie down to the frame of the trailer to get my boat home!! 273026

Purchased to replace the same on my boat trailer that lost some teeth when I had to winch it all the way in on a steep incline fully loaded because of an engine failure. It was easy to install and has worked fine. 263783

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch

  • Replacement Handle for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DL1100A
  • While there is a replacement handle for your Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103 (which is model DL1100A), the Replacement Winch Handle # DL5703657, a different handle will not give this winch a ratcheting mechanism. For that you would need to replace the winch entirely with the Single-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W1800D which has a ratcheting hand crank. This winch comes with a 20' strap and has an 1,800 lb capacity, though there are other capacities available: 2,000 lbs # 315-W2000D,...

  • Strap Recommendation for Use with Dutton Lainson Winch part # DL15103
  • A 2 inch wide strap would be what you would need to use with the Dutton Lainson Winch part # DL15103 that you referenced. For that you would want the part # DL24249.

  • Recommended Winch for Loading Cars On and Off of a Flat Bed Trailer
  • Pulling cars onto a trailer will undoubtedly require pulling the vehicle up an incline, which will add extra resistance to the equation. If you are pulling a rolling load, not dragging the car and no flat tires, up just a slight incline like a 3 degree slope the weight capacity of the winch can be multiplied by 6.67 times, see hand winch article, Winching on an Incline, which I have linked for you to review. A steeper incline causes more resistance and reduces the rolling load capacity...

  • Recommendation for a Replacement Boat Winch for a Boat Trailer
  • Dutton Lainson moved from an 800 pound boat winch and now have a 900 pound winch that I think would work well for you. Take a look at Hand Winch, # DL15002. This is a 900 pound winch with a TUFFPLATE finish that resists corrosion and would be a good choice for marine applications. This winch can be used with either a cable or a strap. For a cable, you can use # DL24044 with fastener # DL24360. Or, if you prefer a strap instead of a cable, you can use # DL24043. I have included a link...

  • Dimensions of Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - 1,100 Pounds # DL15103 referenced in your question. I was able to take the measurements you are needing and have attached an image with these dimensions labeled that you can check out. The mounting base on the winch measures 5 inches in length and 3-1/2 inches wide. The height of the winch, not including the handle, is 5-1/2 inches and with the handle it is 9-3/4 inches. The total length without the handle...

  • Recommended Hand Winch That Can Hold 70-Ft Of Wire Cable
  • We do have a winch that works with cable and may workk great for you. I recommend the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch, part # DL15103. This winch can hold up to 79-ft of 3/16-inch wire cable and it has a 1,100-lb capacity.

  • Does Duton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103 Require Cable Fastener # DL24361 to Secure the Cable
  • Yes, you would need to get the Cable Fastener, # DL24361, to secure the cable to the winch. The winch will also require a cable if you do not already have one that will fit. I recommend Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook, # DL24044.

  • 1,800 lb Capacity Handwinch with Long Cable/Strap Capacity
  • What it sounds like you are looking for is a handwinch under $50 dollars that has the longest strap/cable capacity. Which based on that I think your best recommendation would be the Dutton Lainson part # DL14627 as this one can have a 9/32 cable up to 58 feet like part # DL24045 or up to 38 foot of strap. The longest strap we have is 25 feet though, part # DL24249. I attached an FAQ on hand winches for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Hand Winch For Pulling 300 lb Catamaran 60 Feet Across Beach
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL15103 would work well for you. It has plenty of capacity, keeping in mind that the capacity of the winch decreases with each layer of cable that wraps around it. This winch does have the option to freewheel, but it features a lock to keep the winch from backing off. It will also accommodate up to 79 feet of 3/16 inch cable. The cable isn't included with the winch, and the longest length we carry is part # DL24104 for 50 feet. You should...

  • Replacement for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Model DL1100
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15103 is indeed the correct replacement for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Model DL1100 that you have now. This winch will ratchet to retrieve the load and then there is a free wheel feature that allows you to pull line out once you disengage the pawl. If you wanted a winch to both retrieve and let out under load you would want a brake winch instead, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake part # DL14934.
