Video Transcript for Fulton Trailer Winch - Standard Hand Winch - FW20000301 Review

Today we're going to review part number FW20000301. This is the Fulton F2 Fully-Enclosed Trailer Winch with a 2,000 pound weight capacity. This corrosion-resistant cast aluminum frame on this fully-enclosed winch makes it perfect for marine use. The completely enclosed design is durable and stylish. Cast aluminum frame provides corrosion resistance. Does have an aluminum soft grip handle which offers ultimate adjustability.

You can switch from whatever side you want. If you want to put it on the left side you can do that or you can put it on the right side. The handle length can also be adjusted. As you can see there's 4 different holes at 1 inch increments. If you put it on the first hole at the very bottom that will give you a handle length of 9 inches.

If you move it to the next one it'll be 8 inches. And then it keeps going down. If you go to that one it would be 7 and the very end one would be 6 inches. So it would range from 9, 8, 7, 6 inch adjustment on the handle. It has a quick and easy installation.

You can have it fit the industry-standard mounting pattern. It uses the Fulton Easy Install System. Basically what that is, it comes with the mounting hardware. There's 3 bolts and the nuts. What you would do is just drop it into the hole and you can slide it across to fit the pattern just like that.

And then use the nut to tighten it down. And it is adjustable. Very handle, easy-to-install system. This is the bolt attaches your handle to there. Now it also comes with the strap, which is a 2 inch wide 20 foot long strap. Now this winch can only be used with a strap and there's a strap anchor. Basically how you would install this, if you look on here on the hub, right above the hub there's a retaining bolt. What you'll need to do is take the end of the strap that has the loop in it and you would run that strap between the bolt and the hub and bring it through. And after it's through there you put the strap anchor on there. And what that does is as you wind it up this anchor will go and wedge between the hub and that retaining bolt there and it will help keep it attached to the drum. Now on front it has a pull-and-turn knob which helps you easily engage and disengage the ratchet pull. There are no exposed springs. If you move it to the middle that is neutral, it says neutral right here. That will let it go either way. It has a dual-gear drum and a solid drive gear which will allow smooth, reliable operation. The handle can be turned in reverse to slowly let out cable instead of freespooling. And on the inside there's a rear strap guide which helps to prevent the strap from contacting the gears. The strap is included. Now the gear ratio on this is 5.1:1. And basically what that will mean is to get the drum on the inside here to turn one revolution you would need to crank this handle 5.1 revolutions. The hub diameter on this drum on the inside is 7/8 of an inch. And, again, the drum storage will hold this included 20 foot by 2 inch wide strap. The capacity on this is 2,000 pounds. Does come with a limited lifetime warranty. And I'll show you the very bottom again, the mounting. And then the operation, basically, just to give you an idea. When you attach this you put this screw in there. For this right now I'm just going to give you a demonstration. I have it fully turned that way, it will crank counter-clockwise. If we pull it up, it's spring-loaded, and move it to the other way it would crank clockwise. And if we pull it up and move it into the middle it'll go either way, pretty much freespools. Very nice, handy system. And that should do it for review on part number FW20000301.

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

I will not install the products on my trailer for a few weeks and due to restoration of my boat it will be a few months before I use the Items. Everything looks as I expected and and hope I am satisfied with how they function. My main concern was the packing and shipping of the Items. Before opening the box, I didn’t know if any of the Items would be damaged or not. The outside of the box was mashed in at a couple of places, the jack handle was bursted through the box and the end was sticking out. After, opening the box, the winch box was mashed in. I didn’t see any damage to anything. 485823

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

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


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

Always had trouble with loading the last 2-3 inches of my 16' Lund with a 75 & 10 HP Mercs. Installed the F2 and easily pulled the boat about 3 inches on a dry trailer. Much better than going to all the trouble and reliability issues of an electric winch. As with all of my Etrailer purchases it seems to exceed my expectations. 198348

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

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.

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

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

If you have a large boat and need a winch that you can rely on...this is it. Installation required me to drill a few new holes for my custom trailer but that was not a problem. After a full season of using this winch, I can say it is well worth its money. I've got a 4500lb boat that always slipped back after trailering...with this winch, it doesn't happen. This winch is very solid and could quite possibly be used to pull the titanic off the bottom of the ocean. 467599

Very happy with the winch and how it operates. The only challange I had was having to re drill the holes to mount it because of the way my old winch was mounted. The rounded area on the front of the new winch was hitting the trailer winch post so I had to take a small amount of the metal off and shift it back. Great product. 445857

Impressed with the quality of the housing. It did not fit the standard bolt holes - had to drill new bolt holes. The unit is narrower than my old unit. Disappointed with the bolts. Standard grade 5 bolts. were not galvanized...including bolt/ collar for handle. I replaced mounting bolts with galvanized bolts and the handle bolt with a stainless bolt. This is a requirement for the warm salty waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Strap hook looked undersized as well, and it is not load stamped with a rating....looks cheap. etrailer was excellent and fast shipping, I would definitely buy from them again. 141430

On this winch you can adjust where the center bolt is since it is a slotted hole in case you need to make some slight adjustments.

  • Recommended Replacement for Fulton XLT1401 Trailer Winch
  • In order to replace the Fulton XLT1401 Trailer Winch I recommend using the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch part # FW20000301 which will actually be an upgrade for you. The added weight capacity is going to put less stress on the winch which in turn improves longevity. This winch also has an adjustable length handle for ergonomics, fully enclosed shell for durability, and an easy to use pawl. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Jack for 2008 Mastercraft Boat Trailer
  • Sounds like you have a great plan in place to freshen up your 2008 Mastercraft boat trailer. The Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch, # FW20000301, that you mentioned is a great option and receives very favorable customer reviews. As for the jack, as long as your existing Fulton jack pivots on a single bolt, you could use the Fulton Bolt-Thru Swivel Marine Jack, # FXP15W, as a replacement. This jack has a lift capacity of 1,500 lbs so it should work great for your trailer. If your...

  • Replacement Winch for the Fulton XLT Single Speed Winch
  • I do have a possible solution for you, however the Fulton XLT Single Speed Winch XLT18ZB301 referenced in your question is no longer available from the manufacturer. I recommend looking at the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch # FW20000301. This is very similar to the XLT and has a 2,000 pound weight capacity. The mounting base measures 3-3/8 inches long and the handle length can adjust from 6 to 9 inches. I have attached a video demonstration on this product for you to check out...

  • Can the Fulton F2 2K Trailer Winch Handle a 1,800 Pound Boat
  • The gear ratio for Fulton F2 winch # FW20000301 is 5.1:1. The capacity of the winch at 2,000 pounds is enough to pull the 1,800 pound boat even in the worst conditions (those being a long winching distance, steep incline, wooden bunk are all of the above). If you have roller bunks the ratio for winch capacity could increase to 2 to 1 or even 3 to 1 in some cases. That would mean that in certain conditions the winch can handle a boat up to 6,000 pounds. But for a steep incline and wooden/carpeted...

  • Can Fulton F2 3000-lb Winch Be Switched From Right-Hand To Left-Hand Operation
  • The # FW32000101 winch from Fulton does not have a left-hand and right-hand feature. The handle will only fit on one side of the winch and cannot be moved to the other side. We do have an enclosed winch like part # FW20000301 that does have the feature you mentioned. This is a 2,000-lb winch and it has a dual gear drum.

  • How to Choose a Hand Winch for a Tow Dolly
  • In order to choose the correct winch for your application, you would need to know both the weight of the vehicle and degree of the incline the winch must overcome to pull the vehicle onto the dolly. On level ground, a winch can pull 10 times its capacity if the load is rolling. For example, a winch rated at 1,600 lbs while pulling a rolling load can handle up to 16,000 lbs. However, while pulling that same load up a 17 degree incline, the winch's capacity is then reduced to 4,176 lbs. I...

  • Winch Recommendation for a Boat Trailer that had a 2,000 lb Winch Installed
  • Roller bunks actually will make winching easier than carpeted bunks, so if a 2,000 lb capacity winch was used before it would work even easier with your roller bunks. That being said the Fulton F2 Winch part # FW32000101 would be a great choice that would have more than enough capacity. If you wanted to go with a 2,000 lb winch that is similar you would want the Fulton F2 Winch part # FW20000301. Either winch would work great. I attached review videos for both winches plus an FAQ...

  • Mounting Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch
  • To use the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch # FW20000301 on your trailer would require you to drill in order to properly secure it. This winch uses what is an industry-standard mounting bolt pattern, but the good news is that its mounting bolts are adjustable along the bottom so unless your mounting bolt pattern has an unusually large spread between the mounting holes you should be able to mount it by drilling just one more hole. I have added a link to a video review of this winch...

  • Yes, the Fulton Heavy-Duty Winch Strap, # FWS20HD0200, will fit on the drum of the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch, # FW20000301. I spoke with my contact at Fulton to confirm that these items would work together.

  • Solution for Needing Replacement Ratchet Pawl for Fulton XLT Winch
  • I reached out to my contact at Fulton and the part you are looking for has been discontinued. You will need to replace the entire winch because that ratchet pawl is no longer available and he said no other kit will work. I recommend the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Adjustable Handle - 2,000 lbs # FW20000301 or the Fulton XLT 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Heavy Duty 20' Strap - Zinc - 2,600 lbs # F142418 as a replacement.

  • Trailer Hand Winch Needed with Shortest Handle
  • The 7 inch handle on the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14125 is pretty much the standard size as most winches have a 7 inch handle. We do have a smaller handle with the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Adjustable Handle # FW20000301 but it can only be adjusted down to 6 inches. If the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch is the type of winch that you are looking for then I recommend going that direction if you will be using cable. It can hold 5/32 inch diameter...

They come in a variety of capacities as well.

  • Freespooling, Controlled Load 2,000 Pound Hand Trailer Winch Recommendation
  • I spoke with my contact at Fulton about the F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Adjustable Handle, # FW20000301. He stated that there is no minimum load required for the winch to operate. You can use it for controlled loads/unloads, but this winch is designed as a pulling winch, not for lifting, and is not meant to suspend loads. In its freespooling mode, the handle will still spin as the line is being pulled out. You might want to consider an electric winch like the Superwinch LT2000...
