Really like the product it’s heavy duty and built well going to work great for pulling My jeeps up on the car hauler just in case something breaks while Fourwheelin I have the option to use the winch. I built a nice strong mounting plate for it and works wonderful. Did not even have to use the low gearing to crank the jeep up on the car hauler

Ask the Experts about this Fulton Trailer Winch

  • Electric and Hand Winch Recommendation For 6,600 Lb Boat
    I am happy to recommend a couple of winches for you. Since your boat on rollers is just over the 2:1 ratio you need a winch with a capacity of at least half the weight of your boat. For an electric winch, I recommend Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15020 which has a 4,400 lb rating and will work really well for your application. It includes a 50' long x 1/4" (6 mm) diameter rope with a convenient hand held water proof remote. The only hand winch I recommend for the weight of your boat...

  • Trailer Winch Recommendation for 35 ft Fountain on Boat Trailer with Wooden Bunks
    The best 2 speed hand winch we offer for a boat trailer setup like yours with wooden bunks pulling in a boat that weighs 8,500 lbs is the Fulton 2 Speed winch part # F142430 which also has a hand brake to help when letting the boat out when launching. This has a 3,700 lb capacity as well and for a cable the part # FWC7500100 would work great as well.

  • Availability of Boat Trailer Winch Rated Higher Than 3,200 lbs
    The highest rated hand winch we have for a boat trailer is the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake # F142430 which is rated for 3,700 lbs. If you're needing something more than that then we need to look into electric winches. The best one for this application is the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 which is rated for 9,000 lbs. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • Selecting Trailer Hand Winch for 7000-lb Boat
    The capacity of winch you will need for a 7000-lb boat depends on the specific nature of the trailer. The factors that affect selection of a winch include the winching distance, the incline and the nature of the bunks on the trailer. The included article on hand winches has lots of helpful information that will guide you. If the trailer is equipped with low-friction roller bunks like # DL21741, rather than plain wooden bunks like # CE27845, then you can safely use a winch with a...

  • Solutions for Fulton T3700 Winch with Broken Cable
    The current version of your Fulton T3700 is the part # F142430 which is a cable-only winch like what you have. Best options I have would be a new cable for yours that is broke like with part # FWC7500100 for a 50 foot cable or to go with a new winch that uses a strap instead like the Fulton part # F142424 which has a similar 3,200 lb capacity. Only downside to the straps is they aren't as long as the cables since the layers add up quicker. This comes with a 20 foot long strap.

  • Recommended Boat Trailer Winch for 9,000 lb Boat
    Thank you for all that information and while I can understand not wanting to go with an electric winch for a boat trailer, the issue is the weight of your boat as well as the fact you are using bunks and have a steep incline. Even if you had a very short winching distance without much incline and were using rollers, the hand winch that has the most capacity, the 3,700 lb Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake # F142430, would be pushing it because each layer of the...

  • Recommended Hand Winch Weight Rating for 6000 lb Boat on EZ Loader Trailer
    The capacity of each hand winch is stated with one layer of rope, cable or strap around the drum. The Fulton # F142430 you mentioned has a 3700 lb capacity, which would diminish by 10 percent each time the cable is wrapped around the drum. With the cable wrapped around three times, the capacity would be about 3000 lbs. This is our highest rated hand winch, I am not sure which Dutton-Lainson winch you are speaking of. When choosing between two winches, I would recommend always choosing...

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Loading Car Onto Trailer
    Due to the 15 to 20 degree incline, the load even though rolling will be a substantial weight. It is equivalent to about a 30 percent increase in resistance. I've attached an article to help explain this. My recommendation for you is to use the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake - Cable Only - Zinc - 3,700 lbs # F142430. This will give you the ability to use either higher speed or higher torque as needed. It will use a cable like # FWC7500100.

  • Recommend Hand Winch To Winch a 21.5 Foot 4,000 lb Boat
    The guideline when selecting a winch is to weigh the boat when it is fully loaded and ready to travel with supplies, gas, etc. Then, take the gross weight and divide by 1.5, which will tell you the capacity winch you will need. You will want to weigh your boat with it loaded like you were going on a boat outing. If you are trying to winch the boat without submerging the trailer and not getting your bunks wet, this can add more strain to the winch. If you are doing so, you would want...

  • How to Determine What Size Boat that a Winch Can Pull
    The Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake # F142430 that you referenced has a 3,700 lbs weight capacity. The size and weight of the boat that it can pull really depends on what your boat trailer setup is like. A boat to winch size capacity is typically 2 to 1 which means that this particular winch should typically be able to pull a 7,000 lb boat. If you have good rollers and a short distance to pull then that could make the ratio 3 to 1. If you have wooden bunks...

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Use with 5/16 Inch Cable
    The Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142430 referenced in your question is designed to be used with 7/32 inch cable. I spoke with my contact at Fulton and he does not recommend using 5/16 inch cable on this drum. For a similar hand winch that can use 5/16 inch cable I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825. This direct drive, heavy-duty winch has a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds and the drum can handle 47 feet of 5/16 inch cable. It also features a Zinc Tuffplate...

The longest 7/32 inch cable we have available is the Fulton # FWC7500100 that measures 50 feet long and also includes a hook. This hand winch features a 3,700 pound weight capacity and will work really nicely for your general purpose lifting or pulling as it does include a hand brake to let you manually control release of a...

  • Replacement Winch Handle Recommendation for Fulton Winch # F142430
    The correct replacement handle for the Fulton winch part # F142430 that you referenced is the part # F501108 which is a slotted handle that comes with a lock nut. The handle is 10 inches in length. If you have something different let me know and/or send me a picture and I'll see if I can find you the correct replacement. This winch has not changed in quite some time. Usually when Fulton makes a change they come out with a new part number as well.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Fulton Winch # F142430 With Drum Full of Cable
    I spoke with my contact at Fulton who said that at one layer the weight capacity of the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142430 is 3,700 lbs. The only other weight capacity that he could tell me is that with 140' of the 7/32" cable, like the 50' # FWC7500100 you referenced, wound all the way up the weight capacity will be reduced to 1,500 lbs. Anything between that would be unknown and you would just have to subtract about 10% of the weight capacity for each layer after...

  • Necessary Winch Capacity for 5600 lb 25ft Baha Boat on Float-On Trailer
    Generally speaking, a good rule of thumb is that the capacity of your winch should be half the weight of your boat. If you are winching for a short distance, and you have good rollers on your trailer, you can get by with a winch capacity that is 1/3 the weight of the boat. On the other hand, if you are winching long distances with bare wooden bunks with no carpet or rollers at all, you will need a winch capacity equal to the weight of your boat. The Fulton # F142430 you referenced should...

  • Hand Winch That Has Capacity for 100 Feet of Cable
    There are a pair of hand winches that have the storage capacity for 100 feet of cable, but it needs to be 7/32" cable; there are no winches that have the capability to store 100 feet of 5/16" cable as it is too large. If you are okay with using that size cable you have two options for a winch, depending on the weight rating you need. - 3,200 lbs: Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch - Cable Only # F142421 - 3,700 lbs: Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake...

  • Largest Available High Capacity Winch Drum for 3/16" Cable
    I was able to get in touch with one of our contacts over at Horizon and they said that the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake - Cable Only - Zinc - 3,700 lbs # F142430 can only be used with 7/32" cable. For a winch that uses a 3/16" cable we have the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - Worm Gear - 1,500 lbs # DL10950 but the drum on that winch can only hold 81 ft of cable.

  • What Gauge Wire Rope is Recommended for Fulton High Performance Winch # F142430
    With the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake # F142430 you have to stick with 7/32 inch wire rope. For that we have the Fulton cable and hook part # FWC7500100 which is 50 feet long and has a 5,600 lb capacity.

  • Winch Recommendation for 3,300 lb Boat Trailer
    Since in general the winch capacity you need is about half the weight of the boat you could get by with # F142416 for a two speed hand winch or the Strongarm part # DL24870 which is an electric winch that comes with a manual crank handle.

  • Hand Winch for Ez Loader Boat Trailer Loaded with 1999 Sea Ray Sun Deck 210
    There is a general rule of thumb used when choosing a hand winch for a boat trailer. If the trailer has wooden or carpeted bunks, you will want a winch whose capacity is about half the weight of the boat. If you have bunk rollers on your trailer, your winch capacity should be at least 1/3 of the weight of the boat. According to my research, the dry weight of your boat is somewhere around 3500 lbs, which means that the Fulton 2-Speed Winch you mention would have more than enough capacity...

  • How to Estimate Trailer Weight Capacity Based on Axle Dimensions
    Well, that's a good question. Before you install any weight-bearing item on your 5 x 10 tilt trailer, such as a winch or jack, I do suggest checking the trailer VIN sticker or the identification tag on the axle itself for a weight capacity. Things can get kind of sketchy when trailers are modified. If the trailer has had previous owners that made changes it can be tough to determine weight capacity. If you can find the axle rating that will give you a good starting basis for estimating...

  • Replacement Winch for Fulton F3700
    The Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer # F142430 is the winch that replaced the T3700 you mentioned. This is a cable only winch but it would still be your best option. For a 50 foot cable you'd then want the part # FWC7500100 which would work well with this winch and is the cable Fulton recommend.

  • Winch Needed for Moving Boat and Trailer to Water from Lakefront Property
    I recommend using the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142430 for your application. It features a handbrake and 2 speeds; one for pulling the line in quicker and one for more of a mechanical advantage. The winch has a Z-Max 600 zinc finish which provides superior corrosion resistance and a 600-hour salt spray rating. The 3,700 lb weight rating may seem a little overkill but it will ensure that your winch will not be straining every time that you use it. It is also...

  • Recommended Boat Trailer Winch For 5,000 lb Boat
    We can get you set up with a good replacement for your 2,600 lb Fulton winch, but let's start with what you asked in regards to the strap vs. the cable, with the latter being the better choice. A strap is fine but there is a risk of fraying or tearing, which doesn't exist with the use of a cable, so I do recommend a winch and cable set up. In regards to the winch itself, winch capacity is at least 2-to-1, so if your boat weighs over 5,000 lbs, it is understandable why your 2,600 lb winch...

  • 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.

  • Recommendation for Replacement Shelby 5470A Winch with Large Drum Storage Capacity
    You are correct that Shelby is no longer in business. Based on my research it looks like your Shelby 5470A is a 2,800 pound hand winch. I wasn't able to locate the drum capacity on the 5470A but the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 that you mentioned can store up to 30 feet of 3/8 inch cable. It does have a very similar design to your existing Shelby winch but also features a slightly higher weight capacity of 3,200 pounds. This is the largest drum capacity hand winch we have available...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Winch for Pontoon Boat Trailer
    Pontoon boats, particularly those that are up to 25' in length, can be heavy, so I recommend a heavy-duty boat winch, the 3,600 lb Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Handbrake # F142430. This is a 2-speed winch and als has a hand brake which gives you optimal control over your winching. It does use a cable only, and the correct one is the Fulton Galvanized Winch Cable with Hook # FWC7500100. I have added links to video reviews of the winch and cable for you to check out.

  • Winch Recommendation for 10,000 lb Boat
    The best option we carry for a 10,000 lb boat is the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142430 which has a 3,700 lb capacity with Cable # FWC7500100. The winch to boat size capacity is 2-to-1 though it can also be 3-to-1 if you have really good rollers and are not using the winch for much distance. So if you have those conditions this winch will be able to pull a 10,000 lb boat. I have added a link to a video review of this winch for you to take a look at.
