The online catalog made easy to find the exact item I wanted. It was far easier than going all over Houston to find the exact item I wanted. Product was excellent quality at a good price. It was delivered exactly on-time. I think that is the definition of a good supplier!!!! 474381

- F143201

Item is exactly as described and seems to be well built. What I like best however is the great service I receive every time when I order something from etrailer.com. Usually shipped on the same day as ordered, most items are in stock, and shipped well packed so it arrives intact. The many reasons I'll keep coming back for more items I might need for my 5th wheel or other projects. 471496

As before Etrailer has come though. They got the right stuff, ship on time and communicate. High fives for Etrailer.com. 151400

The 2500 winch arrived in perfect condition, in two days, in its factory box. I already installed it on my US Tower HDX-555 Crank Up Tower. The holes match the plate that the 1500 was mounted on. I highly recommend etrailer! 130291

This winch replaces a 32 year old Fulton K1500. This winch appears to be top notch quality and installed in the same mount holes as the K1500. The K2550 has slotted mounting holes so it is flexible as to the old mount hole positions. The only problem I had was the handle offset was not enough to clear a leg of the tower it is used on so I had to use the old handle. If I can find a local machine shop that has a heavy duty metal bending machine then I can possibly get the needed offset of about 3 inches. Otherwise I'll just use the old handle. This is a heavy duty winch and E-trailer ships fast. Good prices too. 50821

etrailer delivered quickly and on time. Product that was delivered was as described. Good product - much more powerful than the smaller K1550. 30431


Ask the Experts about this Fulton Trailer Winch

  • What is Max Length of 1/4 inch Cable that Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143201 Can Store
    The Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143201 that you referenced can store 70 feet of 1/4 inch diameter cable. The longest wire we have in this size is the part # DL24104 which measures 50 feet in length.

  • Is There a Force Rating for Rotating the Handle on the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch
    When there isn't a load on the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143201 the handle is very easy to move. Naturally as you put more of a load on the winch it will be more difficult to turn but winch manufacturers don't rate the handles like this so unfortunately I don't have an exact answer for you. If you check out the linked review video you can see how easy the handle is to move just after the 1:00 minute mark.

  • Winch Needed to Tilt Load from Vertical to Horizontal
    It sounds like you are either needing to use a system like the Fulton 2.5K Winch # F143201 with a pulley like the part # BDW20027, or you need a vertical winch like the 4K Dutton-Lainson Ceiling Winch # DL11140. Since winches are rated more for weight than for application it is a little difficult to gauge exactly what you need but if either of the options mentioned above don't work just give me a little more detail about what you are trying to do with maybe some weight and I can assist...

  • Can a Strap be Used with the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143201
    I do have a solution for you to use a winch with a strap but unfortunately we don't have a 2D drawing of the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143201 and this winch is not compatible with a strap, only cable like part # DL24102. For a similar winch that does allow you to use a strap we have the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721. This is also rated for 2,500 lbs and can be used with the Hand Winch Strap # DL24251. If there are specific dimensions you are looking for (like the...

  • Does the #8 Washer/Bushing Come with the Replacement Pinion Shaft and Gear Kit F501121
    I spoke with Fulton and can confirm the Replacement Pinion Shaft and Gear Kit part # F501121 which is designed for the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch part # F143201 does come with the #8 Washer in the attached photo below.

  • Replacement Brake Pads and Pinion Shaft/Gear Kit for Fulton K2550 Winch # F143201
    I've confirmed with Fulton that the # F501127 are the correct friction brake pads and the # F501121 Pinion Shaft and Gear Kit are the correct replacement parts for the Fulton K2550 hand winch, now known as part # F143201.

  • Recommended Boat Lift Winch to Replace 2500 lb Shelby Winch
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2,500 lbs # DL14958 you asked the question from is a great option for your boat lift. This is a very nice option that will keep the handle from free-wheeling and possibly hurting someone. The automatic brake stops the load when hand cranking stops. Another great option is the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch - Cable Only - 2,500 lbs # F143201. This also has an automatic brake and a zinc finish rated for 600...

  • Replacement Winch for Discontinued Fulton Winch # FKW30000103
    That winch has actually been discontinued so we do not carry it anymore. We do carry the Fulton # F143100 rated for 1,500 lbs and the Fulton # F143201 rated for 2,500 lbs. Both of these are hand brake winches. We do have a Fulton winch option that is compatible with 3,000 lbs and that is the Fulton F2 # FW32000101. This winch is a 2-speed winch that has an adjustable handle and is rated for 3,200 lbs. If you would like a winch that has the braking feature and is rated for 3,500...

  • What Determines a Hand Winch Minimum Operating Weight and Can it Be Modified/Lowered
    I reached out to my contact at Dutton-Lainson and confirmed there is not a way to reduce the minimum operating weight required. Both the # DL15761 and the # DL14964 use the same brake pad and washer. However, # DL15761 (2,500 lbs) is physically bigger/heavier than # DL14964 (1,500 lbs) and uses two drive shafts instead of just one like the smaller winch. That is a big part of why it has the heavier weight requirement and heavier weight capacity. An even better solution for you than...

  • Mounting a Winch in a Boat House to Pull a Boat Up a Launch Ramp
    I am assuming the boat is on a trailer when stored in the boat house which will make things a lot easier. So basically what you could do is use a winch that can pull/lower the trailer and boat up and down the ramp. To load the boat on the trailer you would need to mount a winch to the trailer. For a winch to mount in the boat house you could just go with a hand winch such as # F143201, which has an automatic brake, with cable # DL24100. If the boat house has AC power then you could use...

  • Replacement Winch for Fulton T1401 With Worn Ratcheting Pawl
    We don't have a ratchet replacement kit for your T1401 model we only have smaller capacity or two speed options that aren't a confirmed fit for that winch. It has been discontinued so as a replacement I recommend the Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch - 8" Long Handle - 1,500 lbs # F142201. The slightly smaller option is the Fulton Single Speed Winch - 8" Long Handle - 1,300 lbs # F142104. If you need a larger capacity, you can use the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch - Cable Only -...

  • Heavy Duty Brake Winch for 2200 lb Pontoon Boat on Scissor Lift Trailer
    Although we don't offer a 2 speed winch that has a brake, the Fulton High Performance Brake Winch, part # F143201 would meet all the rest of the parameters you listed. The winch will automatically hold the load when the handle is released, which means you won't need to hold the crank while fumbling around for the spool lever. The jack has a 2500 lb capacity, and would work well for your pontoon. The # FWC7500100 galvanized cable you'd looked at would work well with the winch I recommended. I've...

  • Recommended Trailer Winch Compatible With 2 Inch by 20 Foot Winch Strap with Hook
    The Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch - Cable Only - 2,500 lbs # F143201 is the replacement for the K2550 you mentioned, so I can't recommend either width strap with this winch. If you want to use a strap with a winch of similar size, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Self-Locking - 2,500 lbs. # DL15721 along with the Fulton Heavy-Duty Winch Strap with Hook - 20' x 2" - 10,000 lbs # FWS20HD0200.
