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.

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

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. 787232

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. 573788

I haven't installed this part yet but I have to say the service was REALLY fast. I ordered it on Tuesday and it was here Thursday. That's great service, after I install the winch I'll write another review. I'm sure there will be no problems with the equipment. 520909


Comments
the mounting holes dont quite line up with the crank holes so I had to drill new ones to make it fit the trailor. also the cables should be longer to reach all the way to the full size truck battery. other than that it works fine

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. 472568

I particularly liked the number of product videos available on the site. One dealt with the wiring and plug connections on this winch. Shipping was very fast, too. I'd use etrailer again for future related purchases. 415230

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. 136607


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,

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

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.

Thanks for the reply Fred. I have spoken with my contacts and Fulton and he informed me that this winch is not intended to be used with any electric drill. This is becuase of the additional friction that using the drill exert is more than what the winch is intended to handle, and can cause damage to the winch.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Giving this 4 stars, as we have only used it once...waiting to see how it holds up. We need to winch a 21' jet boat onto and off a floating dock and this is replacing our hand winch. So much easier! We swapped out the wire cable for the nylon one that is compatible with this winch - better for marine use. We needed to drill one extra hole for our mounting, but install was relatively straight forward. This does stay mounted to our dock, exposed to the elements. We are covering the unit and wires with plastic to help prolong its life. Customer service at etrailer was fantastic. They helped me choose the correct items for our needs and followed up with the order. I would use them again and recommend them to others. 465202

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I ordered 2 of these for my double wave runner boat lift. I waited to review until I had used them for a while. They have been in use for over a month and are just fantastic. They are plenty powerful enough to raise an 850 lb boat and does it very quickly...45 seconds. And that's on an extremely high "heavy water lift" as I live on a Great Lake. Both are hooked to one battery and one charger and even with a busy weekend of guests riding on and off all day they do not even slow, meaning they are not over draining the battery. 2 of my neighbors want in on this success and are now ordering. Well built and looks like they will last a long time. One neighbor has one that is over 10 years old. 292742

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 394552

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


The winch appears to be good and everything it was advertised to be. However there are two problems with the wiring harness. 1. The bracket with the attached fuses is not designed to connect to a side terminal type battery. Actually Iā€™m not sure how it would connect to an upper post battery unless there were secondary posts with wing nuts like found on a marine battery. 2. The positive side of the wiring harness is 25ā€™ but the negative side is only 5ā€™. If you ground the harness to your truck frame you may not be able to reach to the winch especially since the 9000 winch is for a larger boat which means the trailer yoke and support post might be further back. I had this problem. I purchase some of the quick release adapters and made a five foot pigtail. 59216

Product is defective. It works but makes a major grinding noise 518290


Comments
According to Dutton-Lainson, the # DL25200 winch is a noisy piece of equipment. If the noise has occurred from the first use, its most likely typical of the noise the winch makes. If the noise is a new development, the winch does indeed have a problem, and is covered by a two year warranty.

I use this to load my boat. Works great. Easily pulls my 16' Alumacraft boat the full length of the trailer. I also like that this winch uses a strap instead of a cable. One suggestion is to make sure the black clutch knob stays engaged during operation. Also, order the wiring plug cover. It is not listed but available. 877344

I have mounted the winch on my trailer. It was fairly easy. I had drill out 3/8 in. holes to 1/2 in., but alignment was already ok. I'm concerned about the 8 ft. ground cable. I'm thinking about putting a bolt through my truck bumper,putting a bolt through and clipping the ground to it. 854059

I am totally pleased with everything about the winch and etrailers service. Read the instructions as you need to loosen tension on the spool when you store for a long period of time. It is easy to release after you do this, but it is easier to avoid by following instructions. 844427

Installation on the trailer was straight forward. Running the wiring from the battery to the rear of the truck, and doing a nice job was a little tough. The winch has worked as advertised , and loads my 18 ft boat without any problems. But having to plug the power cord in at the bottom of the boat ramp is an additional step to get used to. 824104

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


This winch has performed great! I wish I would have put this on a long time ago. I'm pulling a 18' aluminium boat on the trailer when power loading is not an option. Only thing to consider is your path for the wires. I started out following the wiring harness from the back of the truck and ran out of wire. I had to follow the frame on the opposite side for the shortest run. This works fine. Agian, I sure wish I would have put this on years ago! 795380
