Video Transcript for Jif Marine 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch Review

Jake: Hey guys, it's Jake here at eTrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at. I'm going to show you how to assemble and get in place the JIF Marine Winch. This is going to be a great winch to put on the front of your boat trailer to get your boat up onto your trailer all the way. This winch is going to have a 2,500 pound weight capacity, but there's also going to be another JIF winch in the same category that's going to have a 3,200 pound weight capacity. This is going to be a two speed winch.

Both the 2,500 and the 3,200 pounds winches are. The two speed winch is going to have a series of gears that are going to rotate together to spin this at a faster rate. Now you can take it out of the two gear mode and switch it over like that and that's going to spin it a little bit slower to have a slower rate.We'll go ahead and show you a quick comparison between the first speed and the second speed and why it's so important to have that second speed. Watch this hole and you'll see it's going to have more torque and move a little slower whereas if we switch over to the second speed.. You watch this whole here, move it over.

You can see those holes are moving about twice the speed as they we're before. With this winch you are going to have a forward reverse and a neutral setting, which will be right in the middle of the two, but with this. Normally when you would pull out on this, your winch handle would kind of go crazy, spinning around when you pull it out for some slack. But with this, because we have a two speed, they give you a neutral option in the middle there too. So you put that there.

Now you can see that our handle spins freely.Now we can take our strap and pull it out to its full length without having to worry about that handle whipping around. Your strap is going to be 20 feet long, so that's going to give you plenty of space if your motor happens to stop running and you need to get your boat onto the trailer to get it home. When it comes time to hook up your boat, you just simply clip it in with that nice, study carbon steel hook and start cranking it in.Our winch is going to have a heavy duty carbon steel construction with a zinc plated finish. That's going to help to resist against that rust and corrosion with the water that this is going to be exposed to. Along with that heavy duty construction, you're going to have a nice long handle and a grip handle that's nice and big to get your hand around it to be able to get that leverage to get your boat winched up on your trailer and you might be wondering what this lever is for here.

When you're letting your boat down into the water, if you leave this attached to your boat, this is going to be your handbrake. So when you're pulling your boat out into the water, you can slow it down by pushing on this lever and then continue to let it out and slow it down. This is going to give you a more controlled launch.Well, now that we've gone over some of those features, let's go ahead and show you how we got it in place. inaudible 00:03:10 our hardware. You're either going to have to reuse your old hardware or get new hardware. It's probably not a bad idea to get some new hardware just so you can keep updated on it. There we go. I want to make sure you get your bracket straight. You're going to need you to remove this nut. It's going to be a 19 millimeter. Pull this washer off. Insert your handle. Re-insert that washer.There we go. Now our handle's all put together. Next, we're going to remove this bolt so that we can slide our strap into place and then slide this bolt through our strap. Slide our bolt through there and through the other hole. Re-insert the nut on the other side and tighten it down. Once you get your spool all wound up, you can take your hook, place it on your anchor, and you want to crank it in the rest of the way. Now, when you get it tight, when you first spool this for the first time, you're going to have some looseness in this spool.So you're going to want to tighten it and you can see the strap adjusting and tightening on that spool. You wouldn't want that adjusting, going down the road. There we go, that's tight enough. When traveling down your road with your boat or any other trailer, you're going to want to leave this in the locked position. That's the same position when you we're cranking it in, because that's what's going to stop it from retracting back out. Well guys, now that you got everything all tightened up and your boat safely secured, you're ready to hit the road.

For my purposes this is a nice winch that does what I need. I had to modify the handle to make it shorter so I didn't hit my boat. It is rather large and the handle is placed towards the top of the unit so you do need quite a bit of clearance. Just a consideration, nothing against the unit. I do agree with another reviewer that the 2" strap on a 3" pulley wheel is weird. However, for my use it works fine. It actually helps a little for me because if the centerline is off, the strap room to wad up a little without causing any binding. It has plenty of pull power. I still haven't figured out what the large lever is for though. All said, for my use case, for the price and how it performs I am happy. 653267

- 315-W2500D

The parts are great a lot heavier duty then I was expecting. I am very happy with the products. the only suggestion is to make it more clear on the parts that come with no mounting bolts so you know to order the extra hardware. 610684

- 315-W2500D

this product did not not have enough info or specs to go by / this spool on the winch is 3" s wide and you send me a cheezy 2" strap to uuse in a 3" inch hole 593868

Not really what I thought it was 541581

- 315-W2500D

Winch was easy to assemble. Heavy duty materials makes this replacement preferable over the original winch I had one issue in that the handle was too long. No matter how I tried to make adjustments on the trailer to accommodate the winch, no Luck. The company had no shorter handles. I finally ended up having 2” cut off in the middle and then rewelded. All is well. :) 579967

- 315-W2500D

Great product nice and heavy duty winch fast shipping great place will be ordering from u again thank u 581256

- 315-W2500D

The winch arrived lightning quick. I think it was at my door in two days. The fit and finish are great. It was easy to bolt on to my trailer replacing the old winch. It was nice to have a nice clean strap instead of the gnarly old wire cable that made me nervous every time I put a strain on it. I especially like the fact that it has two speeds and a neutral which disengages the gears to make it easy and fast to reel out the strap, and that it can ratchet in either direction so you can wind in either over or under the drum without having to use tools to change the ratchet position. I'm looking forward to not blowing out my shoulder trying to haul the boat off the beach onto the trailer with my old 4:1 ratio winch, the new 5.1:1 high gear might just do it, but I am sure the 12.2:1 low gear will definitely do the job! 559441

- 315-W2500D

Helps load boat with my weak wrists. Wish for a additional gear in low range so you could always rotate handle in same direction for high or low range. I am very pleased with winch. 745289

- 315-W2500D

my 2003 Starcraft 17' boat trailer had a tired 100# winch. this winch fit right on and easily loads the boat! Don't fight that lightweight junk stout winch Tom Barnell, Ca 696262

Arrived earlier than expected! Great customer communication. They also had the best deal on the winch and the video showed the advantage of the 2 speed system. Definitely using them again! 665120

Great customer service, fast shipping, and best price around. Hoping this one will last as long as the last one... 655241

I can't review the product that I received today, but I can give 5 stars to the prompt delivery. The product has to be installed and tested, and its installation has not yet happened. I will use this product to replace the 2-speed winch on my 2004 boat trailer. Thank you for your prompt delivery. John Kimball 627742

I haven't actually tried the winch yet. But so far I am extremely happy. This winch is about 3 or 4 times heavier than the one it replaced. I like the extra features on it also. 508724

One year later, still operating as expected

Ask the Experts about this Jif Marine Trailer Winch

  • Recommended Winch for a 3,500 lb Boat with Carpeted Bunk Boards
    I spoke to the manufacturer Jif Marine, they informed me that the 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap part # 315-W2500D would not be sufficient for a 3,500 - 4,000 lb boat even with bunk boards. The bunk boards are certainly going to help but wont do as much as a set of rollers will like part # DL21741 in regards to reducing the size of winch needed to pull the boat in. Instead, I recommend taking a look at the 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap part # 315-W3200D which...

  • Will The Mounting base for Hand Winch Fit On Boat Winch Support?
    I wouldn't hesitate to add the 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap - 2,500 lbs # 315-W2500D to your 3 inch wide trailer winch post. Many of the boat winch posts are not even that wide. For instance the CE Smith Winch Stand - Galvanized Steel - 30" Tall x 2" Wide # CE31013G. At minimum two bolts are needed to hold the base, but ideally 3 or 4 could be used on your support to give stability and support to your mount. It will not be an issue to have the base overhang the support.

  • What are the Base Dimensions of Jif Marine 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D
    The base on 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D measures 5-3/4 inches wide by 7-1/8 inches long. I have included a picture showing this for you and a link to a video review on this winch.

  • Hand Winch for Utility Trailer
    There are plenty of winches like the JIF Marine # 315-W2500D that will be highly effective for your utility trailer but the issue, as you know, as turning the handle. There are no specific winch mounts we can offer for your application and though it likely possible, the mount would be something you would have to fabricate yourself and bolt your winch to.

  • Will 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap # 315-W2500D Fit Load Rite Boat Trailer
    The 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap # 315-W2500D that you referenced is designed to fit the standard winch mounting brackets like what your trailer would have so it will work great for that. It also has plenty more capacity than your boat weight calls for so it will be very easy to crank as well.

  • Replacement Winch for 3,500 lb Boat Trailer
    Winch handles are designed to fit specific manufacturer models of winch, so you can potentially get a replacement handle, but for the correct one you will need to know the model number and manufacturer; if you do know that information, you can let me know and I would be happy to try and find the correct replacement for you. Apart from that you would need a new winch. I recommend checking out Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D, which has a 2-speed system, self-locking crank and comes with...

    The base on 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D measures 5-3/4 inches wide by 7-1/8 inches long. This is a very standard size and bolt pattern so it should fit on your trailer easily. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Handle for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DL1100A
    While there is a replacement handle for your Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103 (which is model DL1100A), the Replacement Winch Handle # DL5703657, a different handle will not give this winch a ratcheting mechanism. For that you would need to replace the winch entirely with the Single-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W1800D which has a ratcheting hand crank. This winch comes with a 20' strap and has an 1,800 lb capacity, though there are other capacities available: 2,000 lbs # 315-W2000D,...
