The winch works great and the break is makes it very safe. Downside is it takes over 100 turns to lower my boat to the water. It turns easy and will not free wheel down to the water.

  • Recommended Dutton-Lainson Winch for Boat Lift with 2,900 Pound Boat
    For your boat lift I highly recommend going with the 3,500 Pound Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL24844. This will provide you with more than enough capacity which is just going to allow for much easier operation along with a longer-lasting unit. This particular winch is also perfect for boat lift applications as it features an integrated automatic braking mechanism to lock loads into place and the handle can be replaced by a large wheel like what you would have for your lift.

    Yes, Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch, TUFFPLATE Finish, Self-Locking, 3-1/8" Drum - 3,500 lbs. Item # DL24844 can be used for boat lift applications and will accept the big wheel that replaces the handle.

  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with Automatic Brake for Boat Lift
    Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish - 3,500 lbs # DL24844 has a threaded handle you can see in the Replacement 12-1/4" Long Winch Handle for Heavy-Duty Dutton-Lainson Winches # DL70350. I am not aware of where you get a boat lift wheel to fit it but this winch is a great option for a boat winch utilizing the handle it comes with. You can always get the replacement handle with the custom thread for the fit and have a wheel custom made from a local fabricator...

  • Electric Winch Recommendation for a Boat Lift
    Honestly, I would recommend you stick with the winch that came with the Neumann Boat Lift that you have. It was designed and tested for being used with your application and the only better alternative I would recommend would be to go with an electric winch. Hand winches do require quite a bit of cranking so yes, your winch will require a great deal of cranking to lift your boat out of the water. Something like the Dutton Lainson StrongArm Winch with Remote part # DL25032 would work great. I...

  • Comparing Dutton-Lainson Single Speed and Two Speed with Hand Brake Winches
    The main differences between the Dutton-Lainson winches you referenced is that # DL14881 has a hand brake, a drum hub diameter of 1-5/16 inches, and two speeds. The # DL24844 winch is a single speed and has a drum hub diameter of 3-1/8 inches. Because of the lower gear ratios # DL14881 offers, the load would be able to be drawn in quicker than with the gear ratio of # DL24844. The two speed winch would allow you to be able to change the gear ratio for loads of different weights. The handle...

  • Replacement Winch for Discontinued Fulton Winch # FKW30000103
    That winch has actually been discontinued so we do not carry it anymore. We do carry the Fulton # F143100 rated for 1,500 lbs and the Fulton # F143201 rated for 2,500 lbs. Both of these are hand brake winches. We do have a Fulton winch option that is compatible with 3,000 lbs and that is the Fulton F2 # FW32000101. This winch is a 2-speed winch that has an adjustable handle and is rated for 3,200 lbs. If you would like a winch that has the braking feature and is rated for 3,500...

  • What Type of Rope or Strap is Needed for the Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch # DL24844

  • How Many Turns of the Handle Equal One Drum Revolution on Dutton-Lainson Winch DL24844
    The gear ratio of winch # DL24844 would be 18.75 turns of the handle for one complete revolution of the drum. You could say that one revolution of the drum is 3-1/8 inches and that would be 288 turns of the handle for 4 feet. You might be able to adapt the wheel to the winch but it hasn't been tested with that type of apparatus so I cannot guarantee that it will work. And you are correct it would be less revolutions and easier to turn. There are other electric winches you could use...

  • Winch Size and Type for a Carson Deluxe Car Hauler with 5 Foot 45 Degree Ramp and 3500 Pound Car
    I do not believe a hand winch is the way to go with a car hauler and a 3500 pound car. It is usually recommended that a winch have at least the capacity of the weight of the rolling load for trailer applications but the hand winch will need to be mounted above the bed and on a pedestal that will allow the handle to be rotated above and below the winch, much like a boat trailer. This would require some extensive fabrication. If you are looking for a good electric winch with enough power...

  • What Does Minimum Operating Load Indicate on Hand Winches
    The minimum load rating indicates the load required to put enough tension on the line for it to be able to be cranked. The winch will not work properly when the line is slack. The minimum load rating would be important if you knew for certain you would not have that much load on the line in the situations where you would be using the winch. Without the load on the line, there would not be enough tension.

  • Which Dutton Lainson Winches Does the Dutton Lainson Winch Socket Work With
    As long as your winch is a Dutton Lainson B series winch, you can use the # DL6456 socket on it. The socket fits in 1/2" drill and measures 13/16" x 13/16" (outside). The number that you mentioned 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. I've also listed a number of Dutton Lainson winches that...

  • Recommended Manual and Powered Winch Options for Tandem Axle Car Hauler Trailer
    A winch that is pulling a load up a 35-degree incline needs to be rated higher that one pulling on a level surface. As the incline increases, the weight a winch can pull decreases. This steep incline requires a winch rated for approximately 1-1/2-times the load's actual weight. To pull a 3500-lb load up this incline you need a winch rated for 5500-lbs. The linked articles on winches will give you more detail about winch types and capacities. The manual brake winches we offer are rated...

  • 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...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation for Building a Homemade Log Arch
    You could use just about any type of hand winch you would like to build a log arch. You will need to determine the capacity that you will need to lift the logs you will be cutting. Having been around a farm most of my life, I would think that a 2,000 lb capacity winch would be sufficient, since you will not need to lift the whole weight of the log with it and if you are cutting fire wood you could reduce the length of the log. I posted a link to all of the 2,000 lb winches that we stock...

  • Brake Winch for Use Pulling Seadoo Trailer Up Sandy Incline
    Winch capacity requirements increase as incline does so for a 25-degree slope on sand you will need a high-capacity winch to overcome both the incline and the traction losses from the sand surface. I suggest a winch rated for three times your actual 1200-lb load. A good option in a hand winch is the single-speed Dutton-Lainson 3500-lb-rated model with automatic brake, part # DL24844. You can use 25-foot wire rope # FWC3250100.

It is rated for use with a cable only, # DL24047. If you could give me more information on the application such as what is on the triple axle trailer and the weight of the load I could make other recommendations.
