Expert Answers about 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...

  • How Long is the Wire on the 12K Bulldog Winch and Wiring Needed to Connect to Vehicle Battery
  • The battery cable on the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW10039 is 6' long. Since you are wanting to run this off of the vehicle battery you will need larger gauge wire but but only from the vehicle battery to a quick disconnect like the Bulldog Winch Quick-Connect Set # BDW20133. You would then need enough 2 gauge wire to reach from your vehicle battery to the rear of your vehicle. We have the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20207 which comes with the quick disconnects, wiring, and...

  • Recommendation for Replacement Shelby 5470A Winch with Large Drum Storage Capacity
  • You are correct that Shelby is no longer in business. Based on my research it looks like your Shelby 5470A is a 2,800 pound hand winch. I wasn't able to locate the drum capacity on the 5470A but the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 that you mentioned can store up to 30 feet of 3/8 inch cable. It does have a very similar design to your existing Shelby winch but also features a slightly higher weight capacity of 3,200 pounds. This is the largest drum capacity hand winch we have available...

  • 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. 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.

  • Replacing the Spring on the Fulton F2 Winch 1600 lbs
  • The Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Strap and Adjustable Handle - 1,600 lbs # FW16000101 will not need to be completely taken apart to replace the spring, but the housing, the pin and ratchet pawl will need to be removed to replace the spring # 4769-28.

  • Best Replacement for a Shelby Hand Winch 5405
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15303 is the replacement that I recommend for your Shelby Hand Winch 5405. These winches both have the same 1,400 lb capacity and overall size. In regards to mounting, most hand winches now use a standard pattern which I have attached a photo of for you. If your winch does not use this same mounting pattern you will need to modify yours to accept this. If you don't already have a strap/wire to use we have these available as part # DL24260 or part...

  • Replacing a Shelby 5407B Winch Rated for 1,700 lbs
  • To replace your 1,700 lb Shelby 5407B winch I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Single Speed Winch # DL14627 which is rated for 1,800 lbs. This winch features permanently lubricated bearings, high carbon steel gears, and a Zinc TUFFPLATE finish for corrosion resistance. The drum can handle up to a 9/32" x 58' cable or a 38' strap, is made in the USA, and comes with a 5-year limited warranty. For a compatible cable I recommend part # DL24045 and for a strap I recommend part # DL24249.

  • Boat Trailer Winch to Replace Old Shelby 5470A Winch
  • You have a Shelby winch. Shelby is no longer in business so that exact winch is no longer available. But there are many other winches you could use even if the capacity is not exactly the same. A 3,200 pound winch such as # FW32000101 is a great option. This winch was designed for marine applications so it is an excellent boat winch. It comes with a strap which is naturally corrosion resistant. If you are looking for something a little more budget friendly the Jif Marine winch # 315-W3200D...

  • Replacement Input Shaft/Pinion Shaft for Fulton K1550 Winch
  • The K1550 winch we carry is the Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143100, and we do carry the replacement input/pinion shaft for this winch. If this is the K1550 winch you have, the correct part is the Replacement Pinion Shaft for Fulton 1500 Series Winch # F501118. If you need other parts for this winch we also carry the Ratchet Repair Kit for Fulton 1,500-lb to 2,500-lb Winches # F501117 and Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24100.

  • Electric and Hand Winch Recommendation For 6,600 Lb Boat
  • I am happy to recommend a couple of winches for you. Since your boat on rollers is just over the 2:1 ratio you need a winch with a capacity of at least half the weight of your boat. For an electric winch, I recommend Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15020 which has a 4,400 lb rating and will work really well for your application. It includes a 50' long x 1/4" (6 mm) diameter rope with a convenient hand held water proof remote. The only hand winch I recommend for the weight of your boat...

  • Is Line Payout Difficult with Fulton F2 2-Speed Trailer Winch # FW32000101
  • You are correct that the Fulton F2 2-Speed Trailer Winch # FW32000101 no longer has the neutral feature due to safety reasons. While you can certainly still pull the strap out when needed it does take quite a bit of effort (the handle will turn 16 times to 1 drum revolution when in low speed). Depending on how far away the boat is when this type of operation is needed you might find yourself wishing you had a winch with a neutral position. Because of this I do recommend going with the...

  • Trailer Winch for Personal Watercraft PWC Trailer

Instead, I recommend checking out the Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch # F142007 or Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - Single Speed # DL17000. I have added links to video reviews of both parts for you to check out as well.

  • Inline Fuse for Bulldog # BDW15019 Winch Connected with Bulldog # BDW20026 Wiring Kit
  • The Bulldog # BDW15019 winch has a maximum operating DC Amperage of 340 Amps. The Bulldog # BDW20026 Wiring Kit has 3 gauge wire. You will need a Bulldog # BDW203547 – 400 Amp inline fuse which is designed for 0 to 4 gauge wiring. This fuse will blow before your wiring is damaged. The battery cable is connected to the fuse holder with a M5 hex key. If you do not have one you can order the Thule # 853-0930 replacement hex key. I have included links to all of these products plus links...

  • Winch to Replace Shelby Model 5352
  • Shelby Industries, the company that made Shelby winches, no longer exists. They went out of business in 2016 after 34 years. We no longer have repair parts for their products nor do we have documentation for their winches. But for their winch model 5352 that you referenced we do offer a comparable replacement, the Dutton Lainson 1,500-lb Winch Part # DL14996. This has a freewheeling lever for easy feed in and out and has an automatic brake mechanism as well.

  • Selecting Trailer Hand Winch for 7000-lb Boat
  • The capacity of winch you will need for a 7000-lb boat depends on the specific nature of the trailer. The factors that affect selection of a winch include the winching distance, the incline and the nature of the bunks on the trailer. The included article on hand winches has lots of helpful information that will guide you. If the trailer is equipped with low-friction roller bunks like # DL21741, rather than plain wooden bunks like # CE27845, then you can safely use a winch with a...

This winch can be mounted with Quick Mount Kit for StrongArm Electric Winches # DL70309 for the hardware, and can use Dutton-Lainson Angle Mounting Plate for StrongArm Electric Winches # DL24059.

This is a cheap insurance policy for your winch wiring so it would be a really great addition. I attached a review video for it for more info as well.

This wiring will allow you to use your vehicle battery to quickly and easily power your trailer winch when needed and will allow...

  • Replacement Clevis Hook Clasp for Fulton T1801

If you have a chain or wanted to add a small portion or chain to your hook then you can use the Titan Chain Clevis Hook w/ Spring Loaded Latch for Chain w/ 5/16" Thick Links - 4,700 lbs # TCSLIP-G70-8-L.

  • What Winches do you Recommend for my Jet Ski Trailer
  • In your situation I really like the Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch part # F142007. While it does not have a handle that switches from side to side it is not common to find that. This will give you all of the power you need and the way they are positioned you will get easy access to the handle to ratchet your jet skis on to the trailer.

  • Winch Post Setup and Winch Recommendation for 2000 Four Winns Vista
  • Typically the bow eye/hook will sit just below the roller stop. In addition to making for an easier retrieval, having the bow eye below the roller also provides a safety measure. The potential danger of your current setup is that in the event of an accident on the road there's nothing keeping the boat from launching up that roller and into the back of your tow vehicle. If you have the bow stop above the eye/hook (with the winch strap below it) the bow can't get over the stop. We currently...

  • Is a Specific Type of Battery Required for Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch
  • The type of battery you are looking for to use with the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Trailer Winch # TW4015 is just going to be a 12 volt battery rated for a minimum of 40 amps, and this is going to be a standard vehicle battery. There are so many different types of batteries now at wildly different prices that it is easy to get lost but you only need a basic battery. For this winch there is not any type of specific battery required so long as it meets those requirements. The only...

The capacity of the left hand winch DL16331 is a bit lower at 1,200 lbs. This is the closest option we have available with a left handle.

  • What is Small Plate in Photo of Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
  • The small plate you are referring to in the photo of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 is the Cable Clamp for Pulling and Brake Winches by Dutton-Lainson # DL24350. The winch does come with this cable clamp, but it does not come with a cable or strap, so for that I recommend the Hand Winch Strap # DL24249 or Hand Winch Cable # DL24102. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825.

  • Replacing Shelby 5403 Winch on Boat Trailer
  • For a winch with a similar capacity as the Shelby you have now that will work great I'd recommend the Fulton # F142102. This winch comes with a 20 inch strap, has a 1,100 lb capacity and has a solid drum-gear construction which means it will last a long time. Unlike other winches that have a drum and gear that are riveted together, which leaves space in between, this winch's solid construction ensures there are no spaces that water or debris can get into. Because water can't get in, there...

  • Recommended Hand Winch for 2200 lb Boat
  • Although the # 348776 you'd looked at would do the job, going with a winch that has a higher capacity than what you actually need is a good idea. The winch won't need to work as hard. With this in mind, I'd recommend the # 315-W2000D from JIF Marine. The extra capacity will be helpful when you add the weight of the cargo like skis, fishing gear, coolers and gas. Normally, with a short winching distance, you could get by with a 1100-1500 lb capacity winch, but going with a winch with...

For the Dutton-Lainson 2,000 pound hex gear hand winch that uses cable you will want part # DL11001 instead. This winch can definitely be used with 1/4 inch cable and the drum can handle up to 59 feet of it. I spoke with my contact at Dutton-Lainson and did verify that the drum hub diameter is 1-1/4 inches and...

  • Replacement Winch Recommendation for Shelby 5404
  • The Shelby 5404 winch is a 1,200 lb winch with a 20 foot nylon strap. The Dutton Lainson part # DL14996 is a similarly rated 1,500 lb winch and for a strap you would need the part # DL24249. This setup would be slightly stronger and less likely to bend the shaft like you mentioned.

  • Can Mounting Plate of Single-Speed Boat Trailer Winch be Drilled
  • No, you should not drill the mounting plate of the Single-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap # 315-W1800D in order to have two inline bolts as it could compromise the integrity of the winch. For a similar winch with a different mounting plate I recommend checking out the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14627 which may work for you. As you can see from the accompanying photo this winch offers the ability to mount on a 3" x 3" tube.

  • Is Dutton Lainson 2 Speed Winch DL14830 Good Choice for Car Hauler

The length and bright color will help as well. This has a working load of 3,700 lbs and a break strength rating of 6,600 lbs.

Each of the terminals is color coded, and comes with new lock washers and nuts for easy installation, however the housing and wiring is not included and will need to be used from your existing winch.

  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 that you referenced is a good replacement option for the Shelby 5352 in terms of size, capacity, and function but it's not an direct/exact replacement. Because Shelby winches are no longer in production I'm not able to compare the handle thread to what would be on your model.

If your trailer does not have rollers or wood bunks you will need a winch that is rated for half the weight of the boat. I recommend the The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14725 with a 2,000 lb capacity which would be a bit more than you need. The ZINC plating will resist rust and 2 speed operation.

The 1500 lb capacity is more that you'd ever need, but the great thing about a worm gear winch is that it will NOT freewheel if you stop cranking and let go of the handle so there's no worries about the Jeep Top crashing to the ground if your hand slips on the handle. Once you stop cranking, the load stays in place and will stay there until you resume cranking. You might also consider the # DL10965...

You can add winch cable like the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 1/4" Diameter x 50' Long - 3,500 lbs # DL24104, which would be my recommendation for this winch and will give you just about the maximum length 1/4" cable that can be used (59 ft is the maximum for 1/4" diameter cables).

  • 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...

  • Recommended Winch for my Trailer to Pull Logs on
  • For pulling logs onto a trailer I recommend going with the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch part # BDW10040 it is a 12,000 lb. winch that will get the job done for you. I've seen in the past when dragging logs they tend to dig into the ground creating extra force that needs to be overcome. This is of course if you're pulling really large logs. If you're dealing with smaller logs then a lighter winch would also do the trick. This winch also offers a wireless remote meaning that you will be...

  • Replacement for Discontinued Fulton XLT1401 Trailer Winch
  • The Fulton XLT 1401 has been discontinued for some time, and as such, the replacement ratchet you are seeking from the photo has also been discontinued, so if your winch does not work, the best option is a new one. The XLT 1401 was a single-speed winch with a 1,400 lb capacity and 20 foot strap, and there are similar options that are high quality but won't break the bank. For one of those I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15337 if you like a longer handle (this one has a...

  • The Single-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap and Brake - 2,000 lbs # 315-W2000D is the replacement winch you would need and is a Jif Marine Winch not Dutton-Lainson. There is not replacement gear kit compatible with your winch. You may want to consider upgrading to the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs # DL14825 which has high carbon steel gears for more durability.

  • Winch for Boat Lift For 1,500 lb Boat
  • For your 1,500 lb boat and a boat lift, the winch I recommend is the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14958. This will work perfectly with your boat lift, and I have added a photo a customer sent in of this winch being used on their boat lift. It has a 2,500 lb capacity, which is the best option for capacity with a 1,500 lb boat on a winch that will work with a boat lift. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14958 has an automatic brake, and while you are correct winches like this won't...

  • Will the 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap Work On a 21' Long Boat
  • The 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap part # 315-W3200D is an excellent option for a 21 foot long boat. Generally speaking, you'll want the strap to match the length of the boat or close so this is a great option. In regards to weight, the rollers will help significantly with this so there will be no issues even with heavier boats.

  • Fulton T3205 Winch Replacement
  • Yes. The Fulton 2 Speed Trailer Winch # F142424 will work as a replacement for your old Fulton T3205 winch. It has the exact same 5.1:1 and 12.2:1 gear ratios as the T3205 and also comes with a 10" handle. I've attached a picture for reference to show some of the measurements-but this is a fairly universally mounted winch. The long holes on the bottom are 1" long and 1/2" from the edges of the plate; the center hole is 2-3/8" from the edge (center of the hole); the long hole at the...

  • Are Worm Gear Winches Easy to Crank

In regards to mounting, not all winches use the same pattern so you'd need to compare the dimensions in the photo below to what you have now. I would not think any welding or cutting would be required but worse case you may need to drill a few holes.

  • 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,...

For one that can be used with a ratcheting handle a higher-rated winch is needed such as the excellent Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14527 that features a 1,600 pound weight capacity. With this particular winch you can replace the handle with the Ratcheting Handle # DL70371.

The cable would attach to the spool as shown in the diagram I provided. The 25 foot length will work just fine with your garage door. Since this isn't necessarily the application the...

Instead I recommend using the Replacement Synthetic Rope for Bulldog Winch Trailer and ATV/UTV Winches - 1/4" x 50' part # BDW20095 . While this is a longer rope it allows you to cut it to the length you want so you will likely be able to extend its reach.

  • 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...

  • How to Pick Out a Handwinch for a Boat Trailer
  • Generally when picking out a winch for a boat trailer the ratio is 2 to 1 meaning you would need a winch with roughly half the capacity as the weight of the boat.

  • 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.

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...
