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

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

Note:

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.

works perfectly.....great product and r eputation!



by:

The winch works as advertised. My boat with gear and fuel weighs in around 6500 lbs. My trailer has rollers so that does make it easier. It hauls it up ok until maybe the last 6 inches where it slows down a bit. One improvement I would make would be to have a better emergencey handle. It is quite small and if I ever had to use it I would imagine it would take forever and not sure I could generate enough leverage to pull the boat all the way onto the trailer.



by:

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.

Works great



by:

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 I’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 25’ but the negative side is only 5’. 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.

Very good handles my 22 foot fiberglass boat without any problem

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

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.



by:

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.



by:

I will write a review when I use it



by:

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.



by:

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

I RECEIVED ORDER YESTSERDAY. PLAN TO INSTALL WINCH AND BEARINGS TOMORROW . PRODUCTS LOOKS GOOD. TIME WILL TELL. THANKS FOR PROMPT SSERVICE.

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.



by:

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.



by:

Winch was delivered 3 days after being ordered. I have used Etrailer over the past 6 years and had no issues with ordering, shiping, and their products. My source for all my boating/trailering needs.



by:

they are great to deal with and will buy again

Exactly what I needed

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



by:

it's a good product

Looks very well built, haven't had a chance to mount it yet! Will update review after use!

  • How Often to Replace a Winch Strap on a Boat Winch
    Typically the only time you will need to replace the strap is when you notice that it is becoming frayed. Typically the first 2 feet of the strap will become frayed first due to sunlight or just the fact that it sees the most movement.

  • What is Amperage Draw of Stongarm TW9000 # DL25215
    Your Stongarm TW9000 # DL25215 that you have draws up to 70 amps and the 6-DZM-20 only provides up to 20 amps so it would not be strong enough.

  • Determining Boat Capacity of Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215
    The 4,800 pound break strength strap that was included with your Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 actually should not need to be replaced. The included strap, like the winch itself, features a working load capacity of 3,000 pounds but can handle a boat of up to 9,000 pounds. If your trailer is equipped with high-quality rollers and is typically used on ramps where the boat will essentially float most of the way onto the trailer, a 3:1 ratio can be used for winches.

  • Can Portable Power Source Be Used to Power Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch DL25215
    A winch can be powered with any suitable 12V source so long as that source can deliver steady voltage and the current required by the particular winch for the particular load it is pulling. Current demand from a winch will vary depending on the winch itself and the load. The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 has plenty of capacity for your 4700-lb boat and it will draw at full load about 70-amps. The included 8-gauge wiring harness is 25-feet long and can support the winch's...

  • Electric Boat Winch to Use with 5,000 lb Boat
    The Dutton Lainson Strongarm winch part # DL25215 would be a great option to be used with your boat that weighs 5,000 lbs. In general when picking out a winch for a boat trailer you need to go with a winch with at least half the weight capacity of the boat so a 3,000 lb winch with a 5,000 lb boat would work really well and have more than enough capacity. This has a strap like you are wanting as well.

  • Recommended Electric Winch for 7,300 Pound Boat
    For your 7,300 pound boat, I recommend looking at the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215. This particular winch is designed for boats that are up to 9,000 pounds depending on angle, winch distance and type of bunks you have on your trailer. If the trailer has roller bunks instead of standard wooden units, this winch will work perfectly and have more than enough capacity for your application. This is a great electric winch that features a spring-loaded clutch lever that...

  • Winch Recommendation for Trailer that Weighs 11,000 lbs
    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. With good rollers and a short winching distance the ratio increases to 3 to 1, but with long winching distances and wooden bunks like what you currently have the ratio is 1 to 1. The only option we have rated high enough would be the Dutton Lainson electric winch part # DL25215 which has a 9,000 lb capacity. Nothing else we offer...

  • Can Dutton-Lainson Electric Trailer Winch be Used with a 6,500 Pound Boat
    As long as the winch is rated high enough to for your application it is safe to use. With that being said, if it's over rated that can improve the performance and longevity of the winch itself. For example, if you're always running it at its maximum capacity it won't last as long as a higher rated winch being used at 75 percent of its max capacity. The Dutton-Lainson # DL25215 is rated to pull a 9,000 pound boat onto a trailer

  • Is The StrongArm Electric Winch 9k Worth Replacing A PowerWinch 912
    The Dutton-Lanison StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 is a great replacement for your current PowerWinch 912 as they have similar ratings, the StrongArm 9,000 is rated to pull up to a 9,000 pound boat, while the PowerWinch 912 is rated for up to a 9,500 pound boat. Additionally, the StrongArm 9000, with a full load will pull 6.3 feet per minute, making it take about 3 minutes to reel the entire reel.

  • Need A Winch For Pulling A Vehicle Onto A Car Trailer
    The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch - 9,000 lbs # DL25215 is an electric winch that is designed for loading and unloading of boats, personal watercraft, and vehicles. This winch has a 3,000 lb. load capacity. The boat size-to-winch capacity ratio is 3 to 1, which is used to determine what size boat that the winch can pull. This means that it is designed for boats up to 9,000 lbs. It can be used for car trailers. When you are pulling a load on wheels, like a car onto a trailer,...

  • Understanding Weight Capacity For Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch With 4,500LB Pontoon
    With the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 it has a load capacity of 3,000lbs. If you are pulling the pontoon onto your trailer with the bunk boards the capacity is 6,000lbs. If your trailer had rollers or as in your situation the bunk boards are submerged under water it increases capacity to 9,000lbs. The reason you see these increases is the entire weight of the boat is not being drug across the bunk boards or they will not require the full force due to the smoother rollers...

  • Where Should a Dutton-Lainson Strong Arm Winch be Installed on a Boat Trailer
    On a boat trailer, you will need to position the Duton-Lainson winch, # DL25215, so that the loading ring on the bow of your boat is the same height or a little higher than the winch drum when the boat is loaded on the trailer. You will need to us a winch stand or other mounting surface that is strong enough to support a load that actually exceeds the capacity of the winch. The instructions, which I have linked for you, actually cover mounting the winch in the first few pages.

  • Recommended Electric Winch for 26 Foot Sea Ray on Carpeted Trailer
    For your 26 foot Sea Ray I recommend the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215. Based on my research your Sea Ray likely weighs around 6,600 pounds, although I do recommend verifying this. The StrongArm works great for boats that weigh up to 9,000 pounds and as long as you aren't needing to winch the boat over a longer distance and the incline isn't too sharp, the carpeted bunks on your trailer along with the strength of this winch will allow for really easy operation.

  • 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.

This winch is designed for boats up to 9,000 lbs vs the 10,000 lb capacity of the Fulton. It has the same power in, power out, and free spool. It also features a dynamic motor brake, heat-treated gears, and precision needle bearings. The only other thing it is lacking is a remote. You will have to operate StrongArm using the switch...
