Determining Your Load Capacity

A common ratio for determining your winch load capacity is 2:1. For example, a 2,000-lb boat would require a 1,100-lb winch. There are extenuating factors, however, that will determine the appropriate winch size for your purposes.

The ratio can be stretched to 3:1 in instances when the trailer in use has high-quality rollers and is most commonly used on ramps where boats float most of the way onto the trailer.

In contrast, using a boat trailer that has wooden bunks, lacks self-alignment capabilities, and is most commonly used on ramps where the boat must be winched most of the way onto the trailer reduces the ratio to 1:1.

Note that pontoon trailers and other special designs require special consideration when determining winch capacity.

70 (35 degrees)1.53
100 (45 degrees)1.29

Determining Your Rolling Load Capacity

drawing

To calculate your winch's rolling load capacity - the amount of weight it can pull up an incline - you must multiply the winch capacity by a factor determined by the degree of the incline.

The multiplication factor shown includes a 10 percent rolling friction factor. Note: A 5 percent - or 3 degree - incline is a 1/2' rise in 10'. Follow the chart to determine your winch's rolling load capacity.



Mounting Your Winch

All Dutton-Lainson StrongArm electric winches are built for multipurpose hauling and pulling operations. They are not to be used as hoists for lifting, supporting or transporting people, or for handling loads over areas where people could be present.

Good quality winch, excellant fast serv ice

To whom it may concern,

The power
cable that came with the winch is 4' short. It was mounted on the front of a boat trailer and I have a full size pick up.




by:

The winch was hard to find e trailer found what I needed and had it shipped out the same day

The Dutton-Lainson Strong Arm Electric Winch work great this year. I only used it 6 times to load the boat on to the boat trailer. I had never used an electric winch before, so I was somewhat skeptical. The winch proved itself and definitely helped save my back.
I had to make some new mounting holes as my initial measurements and the actual bracket holes did not match up. I also did not use the vehicle battery for operation. I am using a spare battery in the back of the SUV to operate the winch.
I also would prefer a stap vs the cable. The strap I purcahesd to replace the cable did not fit the winch. I am happy with the winch.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


The trailer winch is a huge help in allowing me to load my boat onto my trailer, especially this year (summer 2022) with water levels in most Minnesota lakes very low. The low water levels prevents the boat from floating up on the trailer in many cases - Muscle is required to pull the boat onto the trailer. This electric winch provides the muscle and saves my 65 year old body from the task.

I power the winch with a 12 volt jump starter and I've used it approximately 60 times thus far without problem. I keep the jump starter in the back of my SUV and then hook it up when I'm ready to load my boat on the trailer. This saves the trouble of wiring the car for the winch and it works perfectly.

Why 3 stars? Because the wiring at the connection from the remote cable to the winch was poorly done and failed within 1/2 year. I had to redo the 3 connections at the end of the remote cable and the 3 connections going into the winch. Very poor job by Dutton-Lainson connecting the wires to the connectors - Inexcusable for a $500 item.

I had a couple questions while installing the winch and etrailer was very helpful in answering those questions. This is why I buy from etrailer and not elsewhere. They both charge a similar price and the technical support that etrailer provides makes it a no brainer - I will always buy from etrailer.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Put this winch on my Ranger 620 boat trailer a year ago and love it! Haven't had a single problem and it helps trailering when I fish alone. I ran power and ground from my truck battery to a back bumper plug, and have a separate removable cable (shown in pic) to connect truck plug to the winch plug. Grounding to the truck didn't work for me. I have another spare cable and plug rolled up and attached to my trolling motor battery for when my buddies drive. Winch prevents power loading and drawing sand into the motor. DL24055 adapter plate was needed and I put a coupler lock up through the middle of the winch to prevent theft and I bought a cover (shown in pic) to keep the rain out. etrailer sales and support are absolutely fabulous! They helped me figure all this out.

Great advice in choosing the correct winch for my needs! The reps at etrailer are awesome! I ordered my winch and within the week I received it! Wow! Best on-line experience, in all aspects, so far!

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I purchased this winch to replace a Fulton K2550 manual winch on my ham radio tower. My tower is 54 ft tall when extended and 21 ft when retracted. It takes about 170 turns of the winch to raise/lower the tower. I removed the hand winch and placed the D-L SA9010AC winch in the existing mounting holes. I like this winch since it comes with a stainless hub since it will be used outside. This winch has a 2700 lb load rating. I am lifting around 700 lbs. This winch comes with no cable or freewheeling clutch. I reused the 1/4" stainless cable on the winch. I raised the tower and it took 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Lowering took 2 minutes. Well within the maximun run time of 3 minutes. The cable length winched was 17 ft. I have raised and lowered the tower several times to work on the antenna's and it worked properly every time. Attached are several pictures of the installation. I already recommended this winch to another ham operator.


Comments
I too am considering this winch. I have a US towers 455, about the same height you reference, that came with a Fulton 1550 and I have upgraded to a 2550 and then a 3000. But still takes too much effort. So my question is: are you still happy with this winch? How long have you had it? Any issues at all?Thanks,
-- comment by: Fred S - 07/30/2014
Hi Fred,Yes, I am still happy with the winch. It has been on a couple months so far. Only comment I forgot was, the optional cover for the winch is very snug when you have to keep the remote and gfi plug covered. I think I will be making a separate waterproof cover for those two parts so the winch cover will fit better
-- comment by: Joer S - 08/01/2014
Actually, I have become dissatisfied with the Fulton 3000. I tried attaching a Hawg drill like so many have suggested. It worked the first summer, but after a winter exposure, the drill tore it up this spring. I have spent the last few weeks investigating motorized winches and finally ordered the Stong Arm Dutton-Liason. It looks very much like a 2550 with a cover and ac motor and is stainless mostly. It hasnt come yet so I will let you know next year how it is doing.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I am a 77 year old man and having to hand winch my small sailboat up on a shore ramp that I have. It was getting to be a bit much, so I decided to look into a 12volt winch. The Dl25200 fit the bill, works great. I have a 12volt battery next to it and a 10 , watt solar charger to keep the battery up, I hope. Time will tell. The service at etrailer was great, good price and fast shipping. Thanks

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I installed this winch as a replacement for the standard winch on my Magic Tilt trailer for my 21ft. SeaFox. I replaced the winch so that my wife would not have to hand crank when helping me load the boat. I only wish I'd done it sooner! It works like a charm, the install was simple and it has held up well. I keep the winch covered with a tarp to keep the rain off of it and I'm sure that has helped. The SeaFox weighs about 3000# plus the weight of the motor, fuel and whatever other junk we've got onboard. If you are looking for a good electric winch to make your life easier, I recommend this one.


Comments
After a year of use, we are still very pleased with our purchase and would still recommend this winch.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I just used it for the second time on my 19 ft Lund boat works great! Could not believe it bolted to the same bolt holes of easy load trailer crank wrench.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Works great. I use it on a 19 foot Lund Impact and a roller trailer without a problem. I recommend this product.


Comments
Great on a boat trailer. Makes loading a breeze. A wireless remote would make this winch even better. Currently in use with a 19 foot Lund boat on a Shorelander roller trailer.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I had to grind a little bit off the gussets on the mounting plate on my Tracker trailer to mount the winch but the bolt pattern was perfect. The electric cable that was provided with the winch wasn't quite long enough for my 4 door F150 so I used my wife's Explorer with the cable provided and got a longer cable and fuse for my pickup and then put a plug at the rear of both vehicles and a plug to the winch so I can use either vehicle. The winch pulled our 16'Tracker boat up on the trailer easily and I discovered you had tighten the gear locking mechanism quite snug or it would slip. I noticed the pulling belt on the winch is not quite as heavy as the one on my hand winch and I plan on swapping it out. Other than that, I am happy with my purchase.

Performs well. Cable does fray easily if there is any slack. Would be better with a strap.

I installed this on my Bavaria sailboat to lift the aft bathing platform up and down. A little bit slower and louder than the original system but this has the manual override which is invaluable if/when there is an electrical problem. Their customer service was outstanding.
