Video Transcript for Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch, part number FW16000101. This Fulton F2 Winch is going to be a great addition to your trailer to replace your old winch. Now, with the enclosed aluminum casing and handle, it's going to make for a great upgrade from the traditional open style.This Fulton F2 Winch is a great addition to your trailer. As you can see, the overall design. It's not too big and bulky. The operation is very smooth, and it is built to last.

This is going to be a cast aluminum casing, so it's going to protect your gears on the inside, and it's going to offer you two drum gears and one solid drive gear. The drive gear is going to extend from one side of the casing to the other, and that's going to offer a solid connection point between both drum gears. This is going to make for a much smoother operation, and it's going to last a lot longer.So to operate it, you simply push or pull on the dower in position, rotate your handle and pull your item up onto the trailer. Now when you want to release your strut, you simply push on the handle, put your paw in the upright position, and you have the option to turn it to release it. Now, you do have another option that does offer free spool.

Keep in mind your handle does spin when you use that.Now your paw is going to come with a rubber coated end to give you a little added grip. This winch is going to offer a 1,600 pound max line pull. Keep in mind that is when the strap is fully extended with one layer of strap on the spool. I do want to mention like with any winch, as you are pulling that strap in and the spool is filling up, that weight capacity is gradually going to decrease.Now included with your winch, you will get the strap. It's 2 inches wide by 20 feet long and it's going to have an attached hook.

Now keep in mind if you are wanting to replace your strap, this winch will only accept a 2 inch up to 20 foot long strap which you can find here at etrailer.com.Now your strap's going to have a 2,600 pound working load limit. Keep in mind, you don't want to exceed the winch's load capacity. Now it's going to offer a nice wide, thick handle with tapered ends to help reduce the risk of your hand slipping off even if your hands are wet. The handle's going to be made out of a cast aluminum so it's going to reduce the risk of any corrosion. It's going to give you two mounting locations, so it's going to extend your handle from a six inch to a seven inch and can be mounted on either side of the winch.Now this is going to come with all necessary hardware to get installed.

Let's show you how to get that done. First thing we need to do to start our installation is you need to make sure you have your old winch removed. We're going to install the handle first. You're going to take your small bolt, a lock washer with the flat washer and we'll use a half inch wrench to tighten it down.Next, we're going to install our grip. You're going to take your long bolt that comes in your kit and put on a flat washer. You're going to see a metal sleeve, take your bolt, slide it into your metal sleeve, slide that metal sleeve into your handle and the handle or the grip through the handle itself and you're going to have a nut that's going to fit inside of the handle. We'll tighten that down with a 9/15th socket or wrench.Next thing we're going to do is install the strap. Now you'll notice this center piece here on one side, you can see it's pretty flat or evenly spaced. The other side is going to be tapered, tapered out. You're going to have a pin that comes in your kit. What you want to do is you want to feed your strap through the one side and you want it to come out the tapered end. What that's going to do is this is going to slide in your strap and it's going to fit right down into that slot, just like that.Next thing you want to do is you want to take your switch and your going to flip it down. You want to make sure that your strap is winding underneath. Next your going to have three carriage bolts with keepers on 'em and your going to slide 'em in. You're going to put two up on this long side and you're going to put one in back and you're just going to line 'em up with the holes on the trailer. Then we'll put our locking phalange nuts in place and you can tighten those down with a 9/16th socket. Once you have your hardware torqued down to the specifications on the instructions, you can hook up to your boat, whatever it is your pulling and hit the road.That'll do it for a look an installation on a Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch, part number FW16000101.

I installed this winch on my 07 BoatMate trailer to upgrade to an easier and safer (non exposed gear teeth) unit. My trailer uses two mounting bolts that go through a section of square tubing and are inline with each other. It was a little tricky to get the lower bolt installed, but it worked out well. The mounting issue is why I’m giving it 4 stars. It’s easy to operate and pulls the strap in quickly. 574775

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


After one season of use on this winch, I am still happy with it, and it has not had any problems. Our boat is heavy, and it helps a lot to have a low gear once the boat is most of the way out of the water. We use it in a saltwater environment, so hopefully it works well for years... we do rinse it out good after each use. 464848

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


This winch seems to work fine except for one MAJOR flaw: The strap won't easily pay out when you switch the mode to neutral. In HIGH gear, it requires a lot of force to pull the strap out (i.e. to get it hooked onto the boat when the boat is several feet away from the winch) as compared with other winches I have used. In LOW gear, I found it *impossible* to pull hard enough to pull the strap out. I will continue to use it, but I am pretty disappointed in this "feature". 565996


Comments

As of January 2013, Neutral option has been disengaged for safety reasons. In low speed the handle turns 16 times to 1 drum revolution.

Now my wife can crank the boat on the trailer with this 2 speed drive. Good looking and good quality. Bolted right on the deck plate on the trailer. Removal of the black plastic cover frame is required to remove the strap before installation. Star screws are a good idea and the plastic cover only fits one way. I recommend this product. 284694

Mounted this on my 2009 Ranger Trail and it fit perfectly using the factory holes for the old winch. I have to deal with a very shallow ramp to access the Pamlico RIver where I live and the Fulton F2 pulls my 20 ft Z520 bass boat (a very heavy boat) onto the trailer with no problem. Etrailer provided fast delivery as well. I recommend this F2 winch and etrailer.com without reservation. 184954

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


I chose it as my previous winch broke as it was not powerful enough. It was a Fulton 1800T. It was fine if I could get the boat trailer deep enough in the water when backing down the ramp. It was always hard to winch my Four Winns 22ss the last foot on the carpet rails. This winch is much more powerful and does the job. It was easy to install as it fit into the existing holes made for the previous winch. I would recommend this winch. There is no neutral so watch the winch handle when letting out the strap. 100040

Upgraded my winch on my boat trailer, went with a heavier one than the one that came with trailer. Absolutely one of the best winches I’ve used. I ordered the winch late on a Saturday night and received it four days later on Wednesday, fantastic service, I’ll be glad to use etrailer again . 604841

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


Great winch. However, installation was a bit difficult as my previous winch had 2 bolts front to back. After a call to e-trailer, they confirmed that I could use 2 bolts. I then needed to change the nut and bolt adding a large washer to cover the large hole and a lock washer below. Getting the bolt and washer into the housing was the difficult part but I was eventually successful. Will be using the winch at the end of the month and can verify performance then. 190305

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


e-trailer got this to me in one day! Thank you! Excellent winch. I replaced an original Fulton winch on my 8 year old MC boat trailer. It was rated at 1300 lbs. and was adequate. When the pawl for the small gear broke, leaving it useless, it was time for new. I thought this 2 speed F2 would be overkill for my application, but I'm very glad I made this choice. I didn't realize how hard I was working with that old winch. This winch makes it almost effortless. It works smoothly, has a nice clean look, and has no traditional pawl to break. Of course we'll have to see how it holds up once THIS one is 8 years old. :) Note: The rating of 3200 lbs. is a bit misleading. The side of the housing is marked saying it's rated at 3200 lbs. first layer, and 1600 lbs. with a full drum. I guess that means the more you strap wind in, the less pulling it can handle. 44981

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


Although I have not yet used the winch as of yet, just installed it yesterday, I like the look and construction of the product. The two speed option will be of use on the steeper ramps when pulling the boat up the last few feet to the bow stop when you really start to feel the weight of the boat. I had to move the mounting position of the unit due to the size of the winch body. I drilled two new holes to be able to mount it without interference. There was enough adjustment in the third hole so that I did not need to relocate. It matches nicely with the Fulton F2 tongue jack. E-trailer service and delivery were great. Great communication and shipped product quickly. I will definitely consider E trailer for my next trailer parts purchase. 47375

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


This is an excellent winch especially with the two speed gearing and the fact the winch is enclosed. It was relatively easy to install - the only modification I had to make was to drill an additional mounting hole at the front (toward the front of the trailer). Once that was done it took only a few minutes to finish the installation. Great product and a very fair price. 475343

Review from a similar Fulton F2 Winch in Trailer Winch


Unfortunately, this unit does not fit my trailer. The mounting bolt pattern is only about 2 1/4" wide for the forward bolts, but my trailer requires about 2 3/4" wide. Unfortunately, the spec for the winch did not specify the bolt pattern, so I mistakenly assumed the hole patterns are pretty standard. I will need to return this unit. 409033


Comments

The industry standard mounting pattern is basically a triangle-shaped bolt pattern. The two bolts at the bottom are 2-1/4 inches apart on center. The top bolt is 4-1/2 inches from either bottom bolt on center.

This is a great trailer winch. Well built and solid. You can tell as soon as you get it that is a quality winch. I mounted it on a trailer for a 24' Xcursion pontoon boat with a 150hp Evinrude ETEC. So it's probably weighing in at about 3500# to 3900# loaded and full fuel and oil. This thing seems like it could pull it right out of the slip and on to the trailer. I would and have recommended this winch to anyone that is looking for one. It completely blows the cheap stock ones out of the water! You won't go wrong buying this one! 285928

Winch is for trailer for 5000 lb. boat and motor. Although spec'd to fit standard winch mounts, I had to drill 2 new holes in my mount, well know trailer maker. Winch appears to be built do the job. Pulled the boat one time, but time will tell. I asked for appropriate winch cover and ordered UF # 38-944020, which agrees with what I received. However dimensions are not as shown on the order. Ordered 12" x 14.5" and received 10.5" x 13.75". Does not fit nicely and not worth hassle of returning. Winch looks nice sitting on the trailer. 567983

  • Ratchet Repair Kit Needed for Fulton T1801 Single Speed Boat Winch
  • I believe you need the Ratchet Repair Kit # F501117 as it is for the Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch # F142306 which is the only 1,800 lb boat winch available. The Winch Ratchet Repair Service Kit # F1596S01 that you referenced is for the 1,600 lb F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch # FW16000101. If you have a different winch just send me a picture of it and I can reach out to my contact at Fulton to see if there is a different kit for your application.

  • Trailer Jack and Winch for 3,000 Pounds or Less Boat Trailer
  • Since a jack doesn't need to hold the weight of the entire trailer it's pretty easy to get one rated for more than what you need. the 1,500 pound bolt-on swivel jack # MJ-1500B-DWL or 2,000 pound weld-on # TJP-2002S-B will be enough and are both great options. It's the same for a winch as well. The winch doesn't need to support the entire weight of the boat but needs to be strong though to pull it along your rollers.

  • Winch Recommendation that Can Have Handle Installed on Either Side of it
  • For a winch that you can move the handle to the left side you can use # FW16000101. This winch is specifically designed to allow the handle to be installed on either side easily so it would work the best for you. The # DL14964 is not designed to have the handle installed on the other side of it so I cannot recommend it for you. The base of the F2 I recommended is 3-1/2 inches by 6-1/8 inches.

  • Winch Needed to Hold a 1,000 lb Pontoon Boat for a Michigan Winter
  • Winches can typically handle at least twice their rated weight capacity when they are pulling a boat onto a trailer that has standard bunk boards. If your PVC rollers allow your 1,000 lb pontoon to move easily then I recommend going with the Fulton F2 # FW16000101. This is a rust-resistant, cast aluminum frame that is fully enclosed. It is rated for 1,600 lbs and comes with a strap rated for the same weight. Using a strap in harsh conditions is much better than a cable because a strap...

  • Selecting Proper Winch for Boat Trailer Carrying 1500-lb Bass Boat and Motor
  • The correct rating of hand winch for use on your bass boat trailer will depend to a degree on whether it has carpeted bunks or roller bunks and on the degree of incline. Rollers bunks like Dutton-Lainson # DL21741 reduce the drag substantially and will allow using a lower-rated winch since rolling loads are easier to pull. If the trailer will typically be loaded when on a steep incline, then this will require a higher-rated winch than if it is typically used on nearly level ground....

  • Recommended Replacement Hand Winch for 1996 EZ Loader Boat Trailer
  • Fulton no longer makes the T1602 winch, it's been replaced by the F2, part # FW16000101. If you're happy with the way your old one performed, it would be good replacement. If you wanted to go up to an 1800 lb capacity, you could use the Fulton # F142306 that you referenced. Choosing a winch with capacity to spare is never a bad idea. For more information about hand winches, take a look at the help article I've linked you to.

  • Recommended Fulton Boat Trailer Winch and Bow Tie-Down Strap for Safe Transport
  • The Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Strap and Adjustable Handle - 1,600 lbs # FW16000101 does not come with the separate safety strap. As you can see in the attached video, the secondary chain in that case is present for that reason, but the winch does not come with that strap or chain. I recommend the BoatBuckle Kwik-Lok Bow Tie-Down Strap with Loop End - 1" x 3' - 400 lbs # IMF12811 for that application. You may be interested in the BoatBuckle Pro Series Kwik-Lok Transom...

  • Will Fulton F2 1,600 Pound Winch Fit Dutton-Lainson Winch Mounting Plate DL24059
  • The Dutton-Lainson winch mounting plate # DL24059 has the top 2 holes spaced 2-1/2 inches apart on center and the third hole in the middle is down 3 inches from the center line between the 2 top holes to the center of the third hole. I measured the mounting plate on the Fulton F2 1.6K winch, # FW16000101. It has mounting slots and the top one is 2-3/4 inches wide but the big hole in the center slot is down just 2-1/4 inches from the center of the top slot. The center slot does continue...

  • Fulton F2 Winch Recommendation for a 1,700 lb Boat With Carpeted Bunks and Short Winching Distance
  • Thanks for all of the information you gave me; it makes picking out the correct Fulton F2 winch much easier. Boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1, so basically since your boat weighs 1,700 lbs you could get away with a winch with half of that in weight capacity. So the 1,600 lb F2 Winch part # FW16000101 would have more than enough capacity and would be an excellent choice. I attached a review video for this winch plus an FAQ on hand winches for you to check out as well.

  • Is Fulton F2 Winch FW16000101 Single-Speed or 2-Speed Winch
  • Fulton F2 Winch # FW16000101 is a single-speed winch that does have an adjustable handle that can be installed on either side of the winch for right- or left-handed users and the handle length is also adjustable. This quality winch probably has enough capacity for a 1500-lb boat but selecting a winch's capacity does depend on more than just the boat weight. The amount of incline, the type of bunks on the trailer (roller bunks like # DL21741 versus standard carpeted bunks like # CE27840)...

  • Winch Recommendation that Moves Easily to Other Side
  • For a winch that you can move the handle to the left side you can use # FW16000101. This winch is specifically designed to allow the handle to be installed on either side easily so it would work the best for you. This winch has a much lower capacity though at 1,600 lbs but the crank moves very easily. In the weight range of the Dutton Lainson we don't have anything that easily swaps to the other side.

  • Will a 25 Foot Long Strap Fit Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch FW16000101
  • You could use Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, 2" Wide x 25' Long - 4,000 lbs. # DL24249 in place of the 20 foot strap that comes with Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Strap and Adjustable Handle - 1,600 lbs Item # FW16000101. However you may not be able to fully wind all 25 feet of the strap onto the drum since it is 5 feet longer. I have linked videos on the winch and strap for you.
