Impressed with the heavy duty feel. Mounted to replace my existing winch without a problem. Would have been nice if it came with mounting hardware but the included strap seems to be good quality. Two speed pulled my 3500lb boat further up on the bunk trailer with ease. Winch is quite loud, thinking it might quiet down with more use.

Good heavy duty with all the bells and whistles except the strap is a little cheap. But perfect for my use

NEEDED A HEAVIER WINCH FOR MY SAILBOAT. IT WILL BE MUCH EASIER FOR MY WIFE TO RAISE THE MAST WITH THE WINCH / BRAKE WHILE I HOLD THE MAST AND CLEAR LINES. ALSO THE BOAT WILL BE MUCH EASIER TO PULL UP SNUG ON THE TRAILER. OVERSIZED COMPAIRED TO THE ORIGINAL BUT MUCH EASIER AND SAFER. MY FRIEND HAS ONE AND SAYS IT IS THE WAY TO GO.

MY BOATING FRIENDS WONDERED WHY SUCH A OVERKILL WINCH. THEY TRIED IT AND SAW MY WIFE USE IT WITH LITTLE EFFORT.

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!



- 315-W2500D
by:

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. :)

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

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.



- 315-W2500D

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.

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

Winch has performed extremely well. The only issue I have with it is that the clicker on the winch is extremely loud! I feel like I should be wearing hearing protection.

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

by:

Works great when you first read the instructions and use it. It’s now harder to sometimes because there are no labels to remind me which lever does what.



- 315-W2500D
by:

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.



- 315-W2500D
by:

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.

Ask the Experts about this Jif Marine Trailer Winch

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • Can Boat Winch be Mounted on a Dock
    Sure, you can mount a boat winch on your dock if you like, you just need to make sure you mount it on a secure place on your dock that you are confident can hold the weight, which shouldn't be an issue. As for the winch, it depends on how heavy your boat is and how far you are winching it in. For a short distance, the Boat-size-to-winch capacity is 2-to-1 but longer distances decrease that. A 12 foot fiberglass boat might weigh anywhere from 500 lb to 1,000 lbs so I recommend a 2,500...

  • Comparing Jif Marine Hand Winch 315-W2500D and Fulton Winch F142412
    Both the Jif-Marine 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D and Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142412 share the exact same gear design as they are both very similar winches that both have two speeds. Between the two I recommend the Jif Marine # 315-W2500D as it includes a strap and has been a more popular option with our customers with 140 reviews at a combined 4.7/5 star rating. I included videos for both of the winches mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Picking Out Hand Winch for Trailer with 19 Foot Larson Boat
    I believe your boat is around 3,000 lbs from what I was able to find on it but I'd recommend confirming that if you aren't sure. So to pick out a winch you'd just need to go with one that has at least a 1,500 lb capacity since the ratio for picking out a winch based on a boat weight is 2 to 1. The Fulton you mentioned part # F142424 would be overkill as it has a 3,200 lb capacity but it would work really well and be easy to use. For a lighter duty winch that would still work great but...

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • Boat Trailer Winch recommendation to Replace 1,600 lb Winch
    For an electric boat winch the Dutton Lainson part # DL25700 that you referenced would be a really great USA-made option that would mean no more winch cranking. If you preferred a hand winch the JIF part # 315-W2500D would be a really great option as well. This comes with a strap, has 2 speeds, and will be easy to crank and reliable.

  • Replacement Winch for Shelby 2100-lbs Winch on Boat Trailer
    To replace your old Shelby winch I recommend using the 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap - 2,500 lbs # 315-W2500D which has a zinc plating on it to help fight off corrosion, so it's a great solution for boat trailers or car/ATV trailers that might sit outside quite a bit. This winch comes with a strap included, so it's got everything you need right out of the box. I've linked a short review video of this winch for you to check out.
