Expert Answers about Trailer Winch


  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Does Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch Come with Mounting Bracket
  • The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 doesn't come with a mounting plate but you can use part # DL24055 or # DL24059 if your current mounting bracket doesn't match with the mounting hole pattern for this winch (see attached).

  • Trailer Winch Recommendation for 35 ft Fountain on Boat Trailer with Wooden Bunks
  • The best 2 speed hand winch we offer for a boat trailer setup like yours with wooden bunks pulling in a boat that weighs 8,500 lbs is the Fulton 2 Speed winch part # F142430 which also has a hand brake to help when letting the boat out when launching. This has a 3,700 lb capacity as well and for a cable the part # FWC7500100 would work great as well.

  • Picking Out Fulton F2 or XLT Winch for 5,500 lb Boat
  • 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. With good rollers and a short winching distance the ratio increases to 3 to 1, but with long winching distances and wooden bunks like what you currently have the ratio is 1 to 1. Once you have a winch picked out for your setup it would be rated not only for winching the boat in, but also for keeping the boat attached to the...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Synthetic Rope Winch for Enclosed Trailer with Drag Truck
  • For your enclosed trailer the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch part # BDW15020 would be a great option for pulling in your drag truck as it has a 4,400 lb capacity and was designed for this type of application. Or if you wanted something that would work a little faster the ComeUp trailer winch # CU645010 would be a really great option. It has a faster motor with a higher capacity which is what allows it to be faster.

  • Recommended Electric Boat Winch For 4000lb Fiberglass Boat
  • The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch - Marine - 9,000 lbs # DL25215 would be plenty strong to pull your 4000lb fiberglass boat on your bunk trailer, and already includes a 2" x 20' polyester strap so you will not need to purchase one separately. Since the wiring included with the # DL25215 has a quick connect already on it you can run that to the battery on your truck and mount the quick connector near your 7-way like you mentioned. You will then use the Dutton-Lainson Electrical...

  • Availability of Left Hand Dutton-Lainson Winch With Automatic Brake
  • The left hand version of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish part # DL14927 is Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish - Left Side Handle part # DL16331. 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. The bolt patterns are not exactly the same but they have elongated holes to assist with installation. I have attached the mounting pattern of both...

  • Can Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch 11011 Use 1/4 Inch Cable
  • You are on the money with the cable that you need, which is 1/4 inch for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL11011. The correct cable for this winch is the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 1/4" Diameter x 25' Long # DL24100 or 50' Long # DL24104. This is a great winch for what you are looking to do compared to the other winch you mentioned, and I absolutely recommend it because it has an easy-to-use topwind handle which cranks in either direction for lowering and lifting and holds...

  • Recommended Hand Winch with Strap to Replace DL2500A

  • Fulton 1,500 lb Brake Winch is Slipping
  • If your Fulton K1550 winch - which is the 1,500 lb Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143100 - brake is slipping, the most likely cause is indeed the friction pads are worn down, particularly if this is an older winch. You'll see signs of wear, most notably in the middle of the pad that are likely the issue. If so, there are replacement brake pads: - Replacement Friction Discs for Fulton Brake Winch # F501115 You may also want to take a look at the teeth on the ratchet wheel to...

  • Minimum Mounting Bolt Distance Compatible with Fulton and TowSmart Single Speed WInches

  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Compatibility With Drill Drive Socket Adapter
  • The Dutton-Lainson # DL6456 Drill Drive Socket Adapter is only compatible with DLB series brake winches, so it wouldn't work with the # DL14730 winch you'd mentioned. Dutton-Lainson offers a 2500 lb capacity winch as part # DL15761 which is closest in capacity to the 2K winch you were looking at, which is compatible with the socket adapter. The nice thing about a brake winch is it automatically applies the brake when you stop cranking the handle but with the flip of a lever, you can...

  • Winch Option that Can be Used with Power Drill

  • Winch that Can Fit in Place of Ranger Trailer Trailer Winch

The split reel design will allows for simultaneous operation of two lines from opposite directions giving more versatility. It is not to be used for raising one object and lowering at the same time. And you will not need to use both sides to use the split reel winch. Both winches will accept the Hex Shaft # DL406102...

  • Wireless Winch Comparison Superwinch S5500 vs Comeup UW-500si
  • The Comeup Winch part # CU645010 and the Superwinch S5500 Trailer Winch # SW1455201 with the wireless remote # SW43GR are both pretty similarly specced once you have the wireless remote for the Superwinch. Based on that I would go with the ComeUp since the price is better, the wireless remote doesn't require any install, has a great range, and easily stores on the winch. The Comeup is also about 20 lbs lighter 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.

  • Troubleshooting Fulton T1801 Slipping
  • Your Fulton T1801 may be slipping for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common come from use over time. If the teeth on the planetary gear or ratchet pawl start to wear down, or if the handle is stripped at the attachment point, you may experience slipping. If it is only slightly worn that would explain why it works fine without any weight but not with the weight of the boat. The spring may also need to be replaced. If you can identify the handle as the problem, the #...

  • Recommended 2-Speed Hand Winch for 2900 lb Boat
  • Typically, if the trailer has bunk rollers, you can choose a winch with a capacity that's 1/3 the weight of the boat. However, if you go with a winch with a capacity that's half the weight of the boat the winch will be easier to operate and won't be subject to as much wear and tear as a lower-rated winch would be. I'd recommend the 1800 lb capacity US-manufactured Dutton-Lainson # DL15502 which will have plenty of capacity and then some to handle the weight your boat. The two speed winch...

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 mounting holes are 1/2" in diameter and you can acquire the mounting hardware at a local hardware store.

Dutton-Lainson winches are extremely durable, well designed, reasonably priced and manufactured in the USA. This 1500 lb capacity brake winch has a brake which will prevent the load from moving or the handle from freewheeling when you stop cranking, but also has a freewheel mode so you can play the line out manually. The winch can also be used with either a cable or a strap. The...

For a strap I recommend using the Fulton Heavy-Duty Winch Strap with Hook - 20' x 2" - 4,000 lbs # FWS20HD0200, which is a 2" wide strap. This winch will work well on your 15 foot Sidewinder boat and can mount to the trailer arm; it may require drilling new...

It has a cast aluminum frame that provides corrosion resistance. The handle on the Fulton F2 is adjustable and can go between 6 to 9 inches which helps balance torque, speed, and clearance.

  • 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 the Winches on a Sea-Doo Trailer
  • When replacing a winch, or winches, on a boat trailer, I always recommend one that ratchets. This way if you every loose grip, you will not need to start all over after the boat or jet ski slides back into the water. So with that being said, the TowSmart Trailer Winch - Single Speed - Ratcheting - 20' Strap - 1,500 lbs # 348776 will be the option I suggest. This is rated up to 1,500 pounds and will use the standard bolt pattern that most winches follow. However, with the way your current...

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. It uses a polyester strap for which I recommend part # DL24249 which has a 4,000...

A better option may be using the Ratcheting Handle # DL70371. This handle is 8-1/4" long so that you won't be giving up as much leverage. And with the ratcheting feature you will be able to use it in any range that you have available.

  • How To Determine Fit of the 3,200 Lb 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch
  • The 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch part # 315-W3200D is an excellent upgraded 3,200 lb winch for a boat trailer. 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.

  • Winch Strap Replacement For 25 Foot Mirage Boat
  • For your replacement winch strap I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap # DL24250. This will work great to pull your boat onto the trailer and the full weight of the boat will not be at the strap as the bunk boards and water will support much of the weight. 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.

  • Can the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Worm Gear Hand Winch Hoist an Upright Piano
  • The capacity of the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Worm Gear Hand Winch # MT70193 is in fact 2,000 lbs. That being said, you cannot use this to raise an upright piano. A winch like the # MT70193 is designed to pull things along the ground. What you need instead is a hoist which is designed to pull heavy loads vertically. I'm not sure what kind of setup you have but we do have hoists available like the # DU29MR which has a working load limit of 1,100 lbs.

  • Recommendation for Double Reel Winch to Lift Jeep Hard Top
  • A worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson # DL10952 winch you'd looked at would be ideal. 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...

  • How Long Does Battery Usually Last on Trailer When Powering a Winch
  • That's a hard figure to give as different winches draw different amounts of amperage and they also draw different amounts of amperage based on how close to the capacity the winch is at. A handful of hours is commonly the amount of time for most applications. You could power the winch from your car battery with jumper cables too.

  • Comparing Dutton-Lainson Brake vs Worm Drive Hand Winches
  • The main benefit of a worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL10970 over a brake winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL74FR is that worm gear winches don't have a minimum load requirement. If you're consistently over the minimum load requirement then I recommend using a brake hand winch as it will be faster.
