But this as a replacement for a pontoon trailer. Shipping was very fast. We had purchased a replacement went last year that didn’t even last season. This is very well-made, got the boat out of the water with no issues. I’m extremely happy with this purchase and it appears this will hold up well. We couldn’t be happier that we found this site and made this purchase. 569620

When i recieved the winch the box was torn up and taped up i know it goes through a shipper but the box was missed handle correctly plus it made me feel that etrailer just wanted my money and that was it also the winch did not come with bolts or screw to mount it on my boat trailer the bolts and screws that on my other winch was all rusted now i got to go get bolts amd screws to mount it on my trailer and the winch did not come with a bolt and a lock nut for the boat strap it only came with the screws and nuts for the cable but if this it a cable and strape winch why not issue a bolt and lock nut for the winch now i have to buy a bolt and lock screw for the wonch so i can put my 10,000lbs sebbing breakable strap on this winch the good news is it look like a tough winch and will find out this weekend when i put it on my 25ft pontoon boat trailer would sent picture how it was ship to me but i will when i update how good the winchbdo 515608

Winch has performed well, I use it with a strap and winch a 7000 lbs. boat onto my trailer. The crank does change direction when you put it into the lower gear range and it can be a pain to operate in that direction when you are standing on a trailer tongue above the water. It does see a lot of salt water use and it hasn't corroded. I am not sure I like the detachable handle. I get worried about leaving it at home or forgetting it on the winch when I pull out of the launch, but I just keep track of it. 577441

I used the new winch and 10,000 lb strap for the first time this week-end. Worked like a charm pulling our cruiser onto the trailer. 391968


Comments
The winch is absolutely fantastic! Works like a charm and pulls like a team of draft horses! I wish I would have purchased this product 15 years ago with my boat. Thanks for the follow-up.

Wind ripped one of my old wenches right off my dock leaving the bolts in place and the winch and cable to shore post in the water. I ordered two of these very heavy duty winches and replaced both the old ones and so far they are doing a great job and have no problem dealing with the high winds we get at the lake. I would have given it 5 stars except for one problem. The winch handle is removable and got knocked off during install and fell into the water. Had to order another handle. I now leave the handles in the dock closet rather than risk losing another one. I rarely need to attached the cables that keep my floating dock in place. If yours is going on a trailer I would recommend not leaving it attached. 789771

Winch is heavy duty and the reduction gear makes it easy to snug up the boat to the roller on the trailer. What I don't like is the handle. It will not stay on while traveling. You have to remember to remove it each time. If you order the winch order extra handles cause your gonna need them. 775507

This is the third Dutton-Lainson winch I have purchased- they are the best I’ve used yet. The 2 speeds come in very handy- fast for lighter loads and slow for heavy pulling. The spring loaded handle comes right off and stores so no one will steal it. This winch is the exact same as the DL3200A. Remember this winch does NOT come with a strap. I purchased BOAT BUCKLE 2 inch 25’ strap to put on this winch. The strap has an 8,000 lb rating. I would NOT recommend doing this- the strap is thick and really not designed for the winch. Stay with the same manufacturer (Dutton Lainson) and use one of their straps. This winch also does NOT come with the bolt needed to attach the strap. If you purchase a Dutton Lainson strap they include the needed bolt. Thanks to etrailer for contacting the manufacturer and assisting me with finding out which bolt I needed. Great product- Great support. Etrailer goes the extra distance to help you with anything you need. 616215

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch

  • Recommendation for Replacement Shelby 5470A Winch with Large Drum Storage Capacity
    You are correct that Shelby is no longer in business. Based on my research it looks like your Shelby 5470A is a 2,800 pound hand winch. I wasn't able to locate the drum capacity on the 5470A but the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 that you mentioned can store up to 30 feet of 3/8 inch cable. It does have a very similar design to your existing Shelby winch but also features a slightly higher weight capacity of 3,200 pounds. This is the largest drum capacity hand winch we have available...

  • Availability of Hand Winch to Use with 100 Feet of 3/8 Inch Cable
    When using 3/8 inch cable, the hand winch we have available with the largest drum capacity is with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440. This can handle up to 30 feet of 3/8 inch cable. Since you are looking for a much longer length, I recommend checking out the Fulton High-Performance Trailer Winch # F142421. This winch uses 7/32 inch cable but can store up to 100 feet of it. It features a 3,200 pound capacity and 2 speeds to fit your specific application. I have attached a...

  • Availability of 3,200 lb Winch that Uses a Wire Rope Instead of a Strap
    We have a Dutton Lainson winch part # DL15440 which is very similar to the JIF you mentioned as it's a 3,200 lb capacity, 2-speed winch but we don't have a JIF version that has the wire rope. For a cable then you'd want the part # FWC3250100 and you'd be set.
    view full answer...
  • Strap Winch for Boat Trailer with Rollers
    You can use a strap type winch instead of a cable winch so long as your trailer's rollers are in good shape and the weight of your 28-ft Cuddy is not more than 3-times the winch's rating. Rollers allow you to use a winch rated for as low as 1/3 of the boat weight. I suggest the zinc-plated Fulton 2-Speed model # F142424 which is rated for 3200-lbs and which has a 20-foot strap.

  • Will Dutton Lainson Winch DL15440 Fit Same Bolt Pattern as Shelby 5466
    Yes the bolt pattern of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 is close enough to the Shelby you mentioned that it would easily fit in place of it.

  • Hand Winch Replacement Recommendation for Shelby 5466
    We have some very similar winches to the Shelby 5466 that you have but we do not carry Shelby winches any longer. The Shelby is a 2 speed winch with a 2,300 lb capacity so for a very similar winch we have the Dutton Lainson 2 speed winch part # DL15440 which would work great. It has a bit more capacity at 3,200 lbs but that just means it'll crank in your boat even easier. Aside from that the winches are very similar. I attached a link to a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • 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.

  • How Do I Select a Hand Winch for My 8,000 pound Boat Trailer
    Finding the right capacity winch for your boat trailer is fairly simple but you have factors that must be taken into consideration. Boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1. With good rollers and short winching distances, you could increase the ratio to 3 to 1. With wooden bunks and long winching distances, reduce the ratio to 1 to 1. Special consideration should be given to pontoon boats and other boats with special hull designs. By my calculations the Dutton-Lainson Hand...

  • Replacement Handle for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch DL15440
    I know just what you're looking for! To replace the handle on your Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 you will want to use the Replacement Quick Attach Winch Handle # DL70330, which is the direct replacement of the handle that came on your winch and is 9-1/2" long. If you wanted a shorter handle you can use the Replacement Winch Handle # DL70336 which is 6" long and is also compatible with your DL15440 hand winch.

  • Hand Winch with Largest Drum Capacity for 3/8 Inch Wire Rope
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 features the longest 3/8 inch rope capacity at 30 feet in length. This heavy-duty winch features a zinc TUFFPLATE finish to resist corrosion during marine applications and it has a 3,200 pound weight capacity. The handle is included and the unit is made right here in the USA. I have attached a short video demonstration on this winch that you can also check out.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for 3500 Lb ChrisCraft Sea Hawk 215
    The Dutton-Lainson # DL15440 Two Speed Winch you mentioned should be exactly what you need. As you said, you want to choose a winch whose capacity is at least 50 percent of the weight of your boat. Since the # DL15440 winch has a capacity almost equal to the weight of the boat, it will provide plenty of capacity to spare. Dutton-Lainson makes a great product, the winch should provide years of trouble-free service. I do not believe you need an electric winch, a two speed winch should...

  • Replacement Winch Recommendation for Trailer with 4,000 lb Boat
    Generally when picking out a winch for a boat trailer the ratio is 2 to 1 meaning you would need a winch with roughly half the capacity as the weight of the boat. With good rollers and a short winching distance the ratio increases to 3 to 1, but with long winching distances and wooden bunks like what you currently have the ratio is 1 to 1. Since you have wood bunks and possibly a longer winching distance I would recommend you go with a higher weight rating. It's a good sign your Fulton...

  • Mounting Bolt Pattern For Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440
    We do not carry the Shelby winch line since they went out of business. We do have the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440. I have attached a photo that shows the mounting pattern for the winch you can check out. You can check the measurements to see if the # DL15440 will work for you.

  • Can a 2,500 lb Winch Use a Strap in Place of a Steel Cable
    Some winches, like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440, can use either a cable or strap. This particular winch can take a 3/8" cable up to 30' long or a 2" strap up to 25' long. Without knowing what winch you have I can't really verify if you can use a strap in place of a cable. If you know who the manufacturer is and what model number you have I can contact the manufacturer if it is someone that we carry. If it is not a manufacturer that we deal with then you would need to contact...

  • Availability of Replacement Handle for Fulton Model 881 Winch
    I spoke with my contact at Fulton and he said that the Fulton Model 881 winch that you have is an older unit. He checked on his end and they do not make any parts for that winch anymore. We do carry a wide variety of hand winches for your boat trailer though. If you could let me know what the weight of your boat is and the setup of your boat trailer (whether it has rollers or what kind of material the boat rests on) I can give you some recommendations like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch...

  • Recommended Winch To Use For a Boat Lift
    I do have a winch that could be used as a boat lift, but the item you selected, Dutton-Lainson hand winch # DL15440, would not be a good option as it is not a brake winch. A brake winch will stop the load and hold it in place if you were to let go of the handle when winching. For use as a boat lift, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson brake winch # DL15721. This winch is designed for multipurpose uses including boat lifts. If you will need a larger capacity brake winch, we also offer...

    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...

  • 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.

  • Replacement Winch for 25 Foot Party Barge Pontoon Boat
    It sounds like an upgrade is definitely in order. The Dutton-Lainson two speed winch you referenced, part # DL15440 would actually be an excellent choice for a heavier boat like your party barge. Dutton-Lainson winches offer a good balance between performance and cost. A two speed jack is ideal for getting a heavier boat up onto a trailer, the lower speed works well for getting the boat lined up and started onto the trailer, and the higher gear offers additional mechanical advantage...

  • How to Determine the Model of My Trailer Winch
    Some winch manufacturers will stamp a model number and brand name on the base of the winch, so you may be able to identify the winch that way. If you do not see a model number, but you know the brand, I may be able to identify the winch if you can send me a picture. If the winch is the original winch for the trailer, you may also be able to contact the trailer manufacturer with your trailers VIN and they should be able to tell you what winch they put on the trailer when it was built.

  • Can the Dutton Lainson 2-Speed Hand Winch # DL15440 Free Wheel
    The Dutton Lainson 2-Speed Hand Winch # DL15440 that you referenced is a 2 speed jack that if you push up on the ratchet lever it will allow it to free wheel. Check out the 2:45 mark of the video I attached to see how this is done.

  • Can Winch Handle and Pinion Shaft/Bolt be Replaced on a Pontoon Boat Trailer
    It is possible to repair the winch that you have. I would need to know the manufacturer and model of the winch though to determine the correct replacement parts if available. If you have Dutton-Lainson winch # DL15440 the replacement handle is # DL70328. For the bolt you would need repair kit # DL70475.

  • Recommendation For Hand Winch With Multiple Speeds To Lift Logs That Are Up To 3000-lbs
    Because of the weight of the logs your are moving and the desire for a faster speed option, I recommend the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Winch with Handbrake, Item # F142430. This durable winch has a 2-speed feature (fast for quick pulls and slower for increased mechanical advantage) as well as a handbrake. It has a zinc finish and a maximum capacity of 3,700-lbs. It also works only with a cable like Item # FWC7500100 that is sold separately. While a little more robust than you...

  • Winch Recommendation for Pontoon Boat
    That's a really unusual place for winch to bend/fail. I'd be willing to be the issue is that the angle of the winch's pull is not ideal. What degree is the winch pulling from relative to the winch plate direction? Parallel?

  • Winch Recommendation for a Deer Lift for 300 lbs
    I spoke with another member of our content team who uses a similar winch for deer feeder poles. He informed me that the Dutton Lainson part # DL15002, would be a great choice. If you flip the switch on the winch it can then free wheel in or out. This winch has a zinc coating that will help prevent corrosion as well. I attached a review video for this winch for you to check out as well. You wouldn't want to use the winch to permanently hold 300 lbs in the air. You would want to...

From what I found the 24 foot long Bayliner made in your year was the 2455 Ciera. Generally when picking out a winch for a boat trailer the ratio is 2 to 1 meaning you would need a winch with roughly half the capacity as the weight of the boat. With good rollers and a short winching distance the ratio increases to 3 to 1, but with long winching...

  • 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.

  • Winch Recommendations for a Letting In and Out a Dock
    For a winch that could bring in over 20-25 feet like you said you need you could use the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440. You will need to also get a Hand Winch Cable # DL24104. I am not sure if you were planning on using the 5/8 inch cable you have on your dock, but in case you were you would not be able to since the cable is too thick and its not winch cable that is designed to be wound tightly.

    This Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, part # DL15440, that you referenced would be a good choice to pull your 6500lb truck onto your trailer. You may also be interested in a Fulton Galvanized Winch Cable with Hook, part # FWC3250100, or a Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, part # DL24251.

  • Recommended Cable With Hook for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440
    The correct cable with hook for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 is the # DL24104. This is a 50 foot long 1/4 diameter galvanized aircraft cable with safety hook. The cable fastener you will need for this is the # DL24362 which is sold separately from the wire cable. If you prefer the strap the one recommended for this hand winch is # DL24251.
