This is a very well built and solid winch. It is exactly what I was looking for in my application. I put it on a log arch I had welded together to lift some pretty heavy logs, and it does so with ease. The hand brake comes in very handy, and works amazingly well. 690608

Solid product! Used it on my boat lift, threads and set up for the brake to work with my wheel was a challenge because the threads on my wheel are 7/8ths, threads on the shaft of winch are 5/8ths and an off set so the brake works with the handle it comes with. That being said, I fabricated up some parts and it works great. Very strong and sturdy and the cable I bought works wonderfully. Shipping was very fast and packaged good. 2nd time I have bought something through this company and I will do it again in a second if and when the need arrives. Great company, great customer based service. Thank you for your great service, other companies need to follow your model. If they do, they will be extremely successful! 521119

My review- is based on the fact that I am a 25+ year maintenance engineer, that I had replaced my Fulton brake winch with a different manufacturer. I had great concerns due to the fact that all I could use was the Dutton-Lainson info. the company provided and we all know that sometimes that is not what we end up with. Well after ordering then receiving the product in just a few days, We then installed and found out that it worked better then what was perviously installed. I am more then just pleased- more then 100% pleased! Great Product, Great Price, Great Delivery Time- no run around! Wow! - Please keep up the good work- America needs more companies like you. You are setting a high Bench Mark for others to follow. Thank You! 36429

Received my DL15721 winch VERY, VERY! fast. I installed it on my U.S.TOWER TX-455 crank-up antenna tower. The lower attachement bolt holes where 1/16 inch too close together, but had little trouble making them work. Winch works well lifting my tri- bander and 2 meter Amateur antennas. Only trouble, was attaching the cable to the drum as instructed ,The cable keeper is small-----or maybe my cabel is large but I got the issue taken care of. Anyway, the winch works extremely well as a replacement for the old K1550 winch , and is much easier to operate. THANKS TO EVERYONE at ETRAILER. Service could not have been BETTER!

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch

  • Hand Winch Recommendation that has a Hex Drive for a Drill
    Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 does not have a hex head that is fixed and would allow you to use an electric drill attachment. For that I recommend using worm gear winch # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out. Worm gear winches are brake winches so when you stop turning the drum, either with the handle or a drill, it will hold the load. There is also no minimum load required. This winch can accept up to a 82...

  • Brake Hand Winch to Replace 1500-lb-Rated Shelby 5352
    Some Shelby winch models used a handle that secured to the winch with an Allen key. If this is the type you have then it is possible that the set screw or the post on the winch the handle attaches to is stripped or worn to the point that the handle can no longer crank the winch. While we don't have a repair kit for your Shelby 5352 winch we do have a great replacement winch to match what you have since it is a 1,500 lb brake winch. For that you'd want the Dutton Lainson 1,500 lb Winch...

  • Dutton Lainson Winch Recommendation for Boat Winch on Dock
    We can help you with a winch but not with a large wheel like in the picture you mentioned. They have several winches designed for boat lifts and those winches are compatible with the big wheel you mentioned. These include the following: Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 1-1/8" Drum - 1,500 lbs. # DL10770 Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 3-1/8" Drum - 3,500 lbs. # DL24844 Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 2-1/2" Drum - 1,500 lbs # DL14927 Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 1-1/8" Drum - 1,200 lbs. # DL10808 Heavy Duty...

  • Recommendation to Replace Shelby 5352 Brake Winch with Wheel
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 that you referenced is a good replacement option for the Shelby 5352 in terms of size, capacity, and function but it's not an direct/exact replacement. Because Shelby winches are no longer in production I'm not able to compare the handle thread to what would be on your model. With that being said this particular winch is not compatible with a wheel like what you are currently using. For this type of application a much better option is the Dutton-Lainson...

  • Recommended Boat Lift Hand Winch with Brake for 3,200 lb Boat
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - 3,500 lbs # DL14881 is my recommendation for your boat lift. It has the capacity to lift without issue, has the braking ability to control the release speed, and it is corrosion resistant. It comes with a 5 year manufacturer warranty.

  • Why Does Winch Handle Unscrew When Trying to Unwind Dutton Lainson Brake Winch
    The DL204358C number you referenced is just a number used to identify the warning label on Dutton-Lainson brake winches. The actual winch model number is stamped into the base of the winch on the side opposite the handle. I've attached a couple photos pointing this out. Some Dutton Lainson hand winches, like # DL15721 do not feature a freewheel option. The handle can be turned counter clockwise to unwind the cable or strap. However, if the minimum operating weight (175 lbs for DL15721)...

  • Recommended Replacement for the Shelby Trailer Winch 5409B
    The Shelby Trailer Winch 5409B is a single speed brake hand winch with a 2,100 lb capacity. It was discontinued some time ago. In order to replace this winch I recommend using the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15721. The Dutton-Lainson winch has an automatic brake for safety, zinc coating for protection, and 2,500 lb capacity. If you also need a new wire rope to go with this winch I recommend the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook part # DL24102. I have attached a review video of...

  • Recommendation for a Dutton Lainson Left Handed Winch with a 2,500 lb Capacity
    For a left-handed winch with a 2,500 lb capacity I would recommend you get a Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15403. What is nice about this winch is that if you wanted to move the handle to the other side of the winch you could. I spoke with my contact at Dutton Lainson to confirm this.

  • Replacement Hand Winch for Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch
    I looked up your trailer jack info and it was a 1,600 lb hand winch that hasn't been made in quite some time. Most refer to it as a "vintage" hand winch. Sounds like you got a lot of life out of but there's nothing we offer beyond what you've already tried that's going to fix it so our best option is a new winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14927 which is another high quality, USA made hand winch that will work really well.

  • Winch Recommendation for 24 Foot Long Pontoon Boat that Has Auto Brake
    When picking out a boat trailer winch in general the ratio of weight capacity to boat weight is 2:1 and most 24 foot pontoons like yours are 1,200 lb so you could pretty easily get a way with a 600 lb winch. But if you have a long winching distance and wooden bunks the ratio goes to right at 1:1. That said, the higher rated the winch the easier is to handle, and since you want an auto brake I'd highly recommend the very high quality and easy to use Dutton Lainson Winch you mentioned...

  • Dutton Lainson Winch Recommendation with 2-Way Ratchet
    On the Dutton Lainson # DL15721, the ratchet style two-way means that you will be able to ratchet the load in or let it out by ratcheting the handle, so when letting a load out the weight of the load will not just totally let go. This winch has a 2,500 lb capacity and would work well for you. For wire rope the part # DL24102 would give you 25 feet.

    I recommend taking a look at the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch # DL15721. This is a really nice, self-locking brake winch that will give you added safety and control when pulling cars up and onto your car hauler. This particular winch features a 2,500 pound weight capacity, which should be more than enough for your application. Since you will be dealing with rolling loads (assuming you won't be pulling up vehicles with flat tires) this or any winch can handle more weight than its listed...

  • Recommended Brake Winch For Single Davit Boat Lift Application
    I spoke with my contact at one of our winch suppliers. They told me that for the use you described and for a single davit used on a boat lift the best winch would be a brake winch. Depending on the weight of the boat you have the brake winch I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Self-Locking Brake Winch, part # DL15721. This winch has a 2,500 lb weigh capacity and has a fully automatic brake meaning the load stays in place even when the handle is released. This winch can handle up to 34 ft...

  • What Is the Difference Between the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DLB2500A and DL15721
    There is no difference between the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DLB2500A and the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15721. The DLB2500A simply represents the model number whereas the DL15721 represents the actual part number. They are the exact same winch.

  • Trailer Winch Recommendations for Pulling a 2500 Pound Tractor on to a Trailer
    The Hand winch you selected, Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch # DL15721, would be a great choice as long as your 2,500 lb tractor will always be a rolling load, and the angle of the ramps on the trailer will not be too steep. This winch can use the 20 foot strap, # DL24251, or the 25 foot cable, # DL24102. If you need to move the tractor when not rolling, flat tire or some other mishap, I recommend using a winch with at least 5,000 lb capacity. A winch like this is only available in an electric...

  • Reverse Function on the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch Self-Locking - 2500 Pounds
    The Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch, # DL15721, you have does not have a freewheel option. This winch uses an automatic friction brake to prevent runaway loads. This means you will have to turn the handle counter clockwise to unwind the cable from the winch. We carry the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Winch, # F142412, that is around the same capacity as your winch and has a neutral, freewheeling option.

  • Brake Winch Recommendation for 4,400 lb Boat
    When picking out a winch the general rule of thumb for boat applications is that you need a ratio of 2 to 1 to determine the correct capacity.

  • Recommended Brake Winch to Pull a Sports Car Onto a Trailer
    The Dutton-Lainson brake winch # DL15721 can be used to pull a sports car onto your trailer. It has a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds. You can load and unload your sports car with minimal effort, with the load locked in place, even when handle is released. This winch is designed to work with cables or straps. I recommend the strap over the cable since you will be removing it off the winch when there is no load. A strap is much easier to remove versus a cable when there isn't a load. A good...

  • How To Unwind Dutton Lainson Hand Winch DL15721
    The Dutton Lainson Hand Winch, model # DL15721 does not feature a free-wheel option. The handle can be turned counter clockwise to unwind the cable or strap. If the minimum operating weight (175 lbs) is not applied, the winch handle will become loose and unscrew from the bolt that holds it in place. We actually get a lot of questions about this. So, when trying to unwind the winch, you just want to make sure that the minimum weight is on the winch and it will allow you to operate it...
