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.

Review from a similar Dutton-Lainson 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 Dutton-Lainson 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 Dutton-Lainson 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

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.

Review from a similar Dutton-Lainson 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 Dutton-Lainson 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. 503091

Purchased a strong arm electric winch to get our boat out of the water. Should have purchased it at least 20 years ago. It sure works great and makes loading the boat so simple and hassle free. Great for us older folks. 397798

Review from a similar Dutton-Lainson StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Great product, used it every day for a week on a 19' glass boat/roller trailer. Used a lawnmower sized deep cycle battery mounted on the tongue in a box. The battery has many more pulls left in it without a charge. Increasingly, boat landings in WI are no power load. This is much safer and easy on the body. 409829

Review from a similar Dutton-Lainson 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 Dutton-Lainson 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 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. 59216

Review from a similar Dutton-Lainson StrongArm in Trailer Winch


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

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 Dutton-Lainson StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Beware! Read the specs carefully. We have a 3,900lb boat and a 32 roller trailer. On an average incline boat ramp the winch can barely pull the boat up. The last 3 ft or so the winch cuts out. Their rating are based on something like a 6 ft pull. 1,500 lbs pull. Previously we had a Powerwinch brand 4 k winch that pulled our boat out fine. Tree fell on it so we needed a replacement . The next size up in DL is a 9,000lb winch We thought that was overkill. Turns out that was probably what we needed. It has a 3,000 lb pull rating. If you take your boats to different launches you know they can vary a lot on the incline. Wouldn’t be fun being at a busy ramp and your whimpy winch couldn’t pull your boat on the trailer. Very disappointed in this winch. Another $300 boat anchor. 657654

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

Do you have a question about this Trailer Winch?


  • Recommended Electric Winch for Boat Trailer with Remote and Override
  • I have exactly what you need for your boat trailer. For this, I recommend using the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch part # DL25532 if you have roller bunks or part # DL25010 if you have standard wooden bunks. The roller bunks will aid getting the boat on the trailer hence the 2:1 winch ratio whereas the wooden bunks will require a bit more brute force hence the 1:1 ratio. Both winches come with a wired handheld remote, manual crank handle, and the proper wiring needed for installation.
