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.

Percent InclineMultiply By
Level Surface10.0
5 (3 degrees)6.67
10 (6 degrees)5.02
20 (11 degrees)3.40
30 (17 degrees)2.61
50 (26 degrees)1.86
70 (35 degrees)1.53
100 (45 degrees)1.29

Determining Your Rolling Load Capacity


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.

It pulls my boat onto the trailer with ease and it always worked. The big thing for me is how long will it last. If it works as well in 5 or 10 years I'll give it five stars.

- DL25215

Yes I finished the winch installation, I have not tried at the boat ramp, however I ran the winch and am very pleased. I am also pleased at the way your company does business. Thank you. George you asked for pictures, please find enclosed pictures.

free wheel froze up after two months of use.

The freewheel option allows the cable to be removed by hand. You will have to make sure that it is in the correct position to use the free wheel. If you have tried to manually adjust it and it is still not functioning properly, this item has a 2-year warranty.

it's a good product

- DL25215

Etrailer had all the parts I was looking for in stock. The sales help was very good and the shipping was very quick. I shop here as often as I can

- DL25215

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.

- DL25215

Very good handles my 22 foot fiberglass boat without any problem

- DL25215

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

- DL25215

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.

- DL25215

Very good product. Pulled my jet ski up on the lift like it was nothing.

- DL25215


- DL25215

Very quick service, fair price and just as described. Thanks!

So far so good used @ 10 times and no problems pulling my 8000 lb. fish boat. The provided wire harness had to be lengthened to function but who cares the winch works great and a strap winch is the ONLY way to go with a boat of this weight.

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.

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.
-- comment by: Fred S - 08/07/2014

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

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.

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.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch

Good quality, works fine although it grunts a bit on the last couple of feet. I appreciate the use of a pretty universal power connector. Changes of or additional vehicles made so much easier. Like the strap rather than wire rope.

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

  • Boat Trailer Winch that Has Capacity for 18,000 lb Boat
    With boat winches you generally only need 50 percent of the boats weight as the winch's weight capacity. So for a 18,000 lb boat like you have you'd need a winch with at least a 9,000 lb capacity. For that we have the Fulton XLT Powered Winch part # F500621 which has a 10,000 lb capacity and would be your best option. The strap is only 15 feet long though so you'd need to make sure you could get the boat within 15 feet from being fully on the trailer.

  • What is the Correctly Rated Winch for 5,000 lb Boat With 25 Degree Angle?
    Thank you for the detailed diagram. There is a way to determine the correctly rated winch, and that is to multiply the winch capacity by a factor determined by the degree of the incline. So in your case, 26 degrees, which would make the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch - Marine # DL25215 the option I recommend. It has a 3,000 lb capacity so you need to multiply 3,000 by 1.86 (the correct number for a 26 degree incline) and that will tell you the capacity of this winch for your...

  • Can the Dutton-Lainson Strong Arm Winch Be Mounted to a Boat Trailer Upside Down
    Yes. There's no reason that the Dutton-Lainson Strong Arm Winch # DL25215 can't be mounted upside down as long as the winch strap isn't rubbing on anything. The capacity of the winch won't be affected with this mounting method, so there's really nothing to be concerned about. I did confirm this with my tech contact over at Dutton-Lainson, as well.

  • Winch Post Setup and Winch Recommendation for 2000 Four Winns Vista
    Typically the bow eye/hook will sit just below the roller stop. In addition to making for an easier retrieval, having the bow eye below the roller also provides a safety measure. The potential danger of your current setup is that in the event of an accident on the road there's nothing keeping the boat from launching up that roller and into the back of your tow vehicle. If you have the bow stop above the eye/hook (with the winch strap below it) the bow can't get over the stop. We currently...

The AC powered winches though do not go up to 9,000 pounds and require 115 volt or 120 volt depending on the winch model.

  • Boat Trailer Winch Recommendation for an 8,500 lb Boat
    Generally when picking out a winch for a boat trailer the ratio is 2 to 1 meaning you would need a winch with roughly half the capacity as the weight of the boat.
