Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Brake Hand Winch - DL24844 Review

Speaker: Today well be reviewing part number DL24844. This is the Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Wench. It has a weight capacity of 3500 pounds. Its made from an extra heavy duty construction. The gear cover protects all the mechanisms inside, including the gears and its going to really protect that from the elements. The drum hub diameter is going to measure right at 3 and 1/8 of an inch and you can also see that it has a nice black powder coated finish on it, which is going to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion.

This does require a 500 pound minimum load to make sure that everything, including the brake system is working properly. Our system has a nice zinc tough plate finish, which is also going to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion.The handle is included and it simply attaches to a bolt on this side. Its going to give us a measurement from the center of where it mounts to the end of the handle of about 13 inches. This has an 18.75 to 1 gear ratio, so that means for every 18.75 full turns of our handle, its going to rotate our hub one full rotation. Our drum hub has a drum capacity of up to 28 feet in length when it comes to a cable that is 3/8 of an inch thick.Another neat feature I want to show you, too, is it has this nice cable stop or a cable hold.

You thread your cable out through one of these holes and then you secure it around this hold and tighten down the nut. What thats going to do is its going to hold your cable in place, as you bring the rest of the cable and spin it around the hub, so that way you dont have to worry about losing that cable end and having it untwine and then having to re-spin the entire cable around the hub.This does have a line in and line out indicator. Its just engraved in the gear cover. So what this is going to do is its going to allow us, if we rotate it this way, its going to bring the line in. Youre going to know that its functioning correctly when you start hearing a clicking noise.

There it is and if we rotate the other direction, its going to allow us to gain some slack in the cable so we can easily make our connection point.We have the different parts here to run our cable through to make for a smooth operation. Here on the underside, we do have pre-drilled bolt holes for an easy bolt on install. Our mounting plate is going to measure 9-1/2 inches by 5-1/2 inches. The elongated hole is going to measure 1-7/8 of an inch by 3/8 of an inch. These 4 are identical.

Theyre going to measure 3/8 of an inch by 1-1/8 of an inch. These 2 holes are identical and theyre going to measure 3/8 of an inch in diameter.Thats going to complete todays review of part number DL24844. This is the Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Wench, rated at 3500 pounds.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • We do offer a range of winches in various types and capacities. The links at right will take you to our main page for brake winches and to helpful articles that you may want to review. The winch I suggest you consider is Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch # DL24844. With this you can use 25-foot winch cable # DL24047 for 2500-lb overall capacity. Please note that this winch has not been tested in your specialty application so you will be on your own in terms of determining its...

  • 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...

  • What Type of Rope or Strap is Needed for the Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch # DL24844
  • The Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch, TUFFPLATE Finish # DL24844 that you referenced is designed for wire rope like the # DL24047 which is 25 feet long and 7/32 inch diameter.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hand Winch for a 30 Foot Triple Axle Trailer
  • I recommend a brake winch, # DL24844. It is rated for 3,500 pounds, its a single speed, and self-locking. It would be a great choice for marine applications or any other application. 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. I have included a link to our help article on hand winches for you.

  • 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.

  • 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....
