Expert Answers about 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.

  • 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...

  • Shelby 5408B Winch Replacement Recommendation
  • The max rating of your Shelby 5408B is 1,900 lbs which would be more than adequate for a 2,200 lb boat as typically the ratio for winch capacity to boat weight is 2 to 1. For a similarly rated winch we have the part # DL14627 which is rated for 1,800 lb. For a strap to use with this we have the part # DL24249.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Is There a Boat Winch With a Remote
  • There is not currently a boat winch with a wireless remote we offer, though the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Trailer Winch # TW4015 you referenced comes with a handheld remote and there isn't an option for a wireless remote with this particular winch. 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.

  • 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...

  • Brake Hand Winch to Replace 1500-lb-Rated Shelby 5352
  • Some Shelby winch models used a handle that secured to the winch with an Allen key. If this is the type you have then it is possible that the set screw or the post on the winch the handle attaches to is stripped or worn to the point that the handle can no longer crank the winch. While we don't have a repair kit for your Shelby 5352 winch we do have a great replacement winch to match what you have since it is a 1,500 lb brake winch. For that you'd want the Dutton Lainson 1,500 lb Winch...

  • 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 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.

  • Hand Winch Recommendation that has a Hex Drive for a Drill
  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 does not have a hex head that is fixed and would allow you to use an electric drill attachment. For that I recommend using worm gear winch # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out. Worm gear winches are brake winches so when you stop turning the drum, either with the handle or a drill, it will hold the load. There is also no minimum load required. This winch can accept up to a 82...

  • Recommended Replacement Winch for a Fulton T1801
  • I have a solution for you. The Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch - 10" Long Handle, w/ 20 FT Strap - 1,800 lbs, # F142306, is the winch I recommend for your application. This winch uses a 2-way ratchet system and has a solid drum design which is much more corrosion resistant than the typical riveted drum and gear assemblies on other winches. This winch is a replacement for the T1801Z0301 that was originally the replacement for the T1801 Fulton winch.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Hand Winch for 6,000 Pound Sailboat
  • Both the Fulton XLT # F142425 and the Dutton-Lainson # DL15440 Hand Winches that you referenced are great winches that will do a nice job for your sailboat. I recommend going with the Fulton XLT 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142425. This is an excellent hand winch with 2 speeds and a shift lock design that will let you change gears without having to move the handle. A nice feature on this unit is that it actually includes a heavy-duty, 20 foot strap with safety hook that will wind cleaner...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

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...

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 Bulldog Electric Winch and Related Items for Car Hauler Trailer
  • We can help you with an electric winch and wiring kit for installation on the tongue of your tilt-bed car hauler trailer. Winches, like jacks, are best selected with a healthy safety margin in their weight capacity. For example, for an actual need of 1000-lbs using a jack or winch rated for let's say twice that will offer benefits such as reduced wear and improved reliability. Often a product used well below its maximum capacity will tend to last longer. A rolling item like a disabled...

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...

The only thing to consider is if you desire a longer strap, which for most trailers wouldn't be needed as you'd float more than 5 feet onto the back of the trailer prior to connection and release prior to that for launch to have adequate footing.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Mounting Bolt Hole Size of MaxxTow Winch # MT70193
  • The bolt hole slots of the MaxxTow winch part # MT70193 that you referenced are right at 1/2 inch in diameter. There isn't a specific bolt size that's recommended for use with this but with that in mind a 1/2 inch or slightly narrower bolt would work well.

  • Recommended Replacement for Shelby Winch 5352 for Boat Lift With Wheel
  • The winch I highly recommend to replace your Shelby 5352 winch is the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14927. This winch has the same 1,500 lb capacity as the Shelby, an automatic brake, is designed for use with a boat lift and can be used with a wheel. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14927.

  • Replacement for Shelby Winch 5405 Because Handle is Unavailable

  • Recommended Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch to Use with Ratcheting Handle
  • I reached out to my contact at Dutton-Lainson and she said that there is not a ratcheting handle available that's compatible with the DL1402A model Hand Winch # DL15303. 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.

  • Availability of a Replacement Winch Handle for a Shelby 5407 Winch
  • We do have a winch to replace your Shelby 5407 winch, but unfortunately we do not have a replacement handle that fits your Shelby winch. 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 has permanently lubricated bearings, high carbon steel gears, and a Zinc TUFFPLATE finish for corrosion resistance. The winch is made in the USA, and comes with a 5-year limited warranty The drum can...

  • 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,...

  • Winch Recommendation for Lifting 700 lb Sailboat Vertically
  • The only types of winches we can recommend for hoisting like what you are wanting to do are the worm gear winches like the # DL11011 that you referenced. This winch has more than enough capacity so it would fit and work well. For a similar winch that can use a strap instead of a wire rope you'd want the part # DL11004 with the strap part # DL24242 and you'd be set.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Garage Door
  • A worm gear winch like the # MT70193 wouldn't be a good choice as you'd need to crank to play out the cable and to retract it. I'd go with a plain old light duty boat trailer winch like # DL15002, which is inexpensive and manufactured in the USA. You'll also need some winch cable, part # FWC3250100. 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...

  • Strap Winch for Boat Trailer with Rollers
  • You can use a strap type winch instead of a cable winch so long as your trailer's rollers are in good shape and the weight of your 28-ft Cuddy is not more than 3-times the winch's rating. Rollers allow you to use a winch rated for as low as 1/3 of the boat weight. I suggest the zinc-plated Fulton 2-Speed model # F142424 which is rated for 3200-lbs and which has a 20-foot strap.

  • Boat Trailer Winch recommendation to Replace 1,600 lb Winch

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.

  • 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.

Because Shelby winches are no longer in production I'm not able to compare the handle thread to what would be on your model. With that being said this particular winch is not compatible with a wheel like what you are currently using. For this type of application a much better option is the Dutton-Lainson...

However, please note that you will be limited to the weight capacity of the winch which is 2,000 lbs because it is lower than that of the strap which is 4,000 lbs but this won't cause any issues it is just something that you need to be conscious of.

Instead I recommend using the Replacement Synthetic Rope for Bulldog Winch Trailer and ATV/UTV Winches - 1/4" x 50' part # BDW20095 .
