Bulldog Winch ATV or UTV Snowplow Winch

This winch lets you raise and lower the snowplow blade on your ATV or UTV. The compact design makes it easy to mount in tight spaces, and it installs on the front frame of your ATV or UTV with a custom mounting plate (sold separately). It includes quick connects that make it easy to connect and disconnect power to the winch. And it has a hand-held rocker switch that allows you to power the polyester strap in and out from the seat of your ATV.

0.68-Horsepower Motor with Continuous Duty Cycle

Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch Motor

This winch features a 0.68-horsepower, 12-volt DC motor with 2,000 lbs of line pull. The permanent magnet motor has the same pull as a series-wound motor but is lighter and uses less current. It also has more windings around the core to generate more electromagnetic power than a standard permanent magnet motor. These additional windings and the 200-amp contactor - compared with the 60/80-amp relay switch found on most snowplow winches - enable you to continuously run the motor without the fear of it overheating.

The motor and gearbox are housed in the same side-mounted unit. The unit has built-in drain holes to release condensation generated by motor heat to prevent internal moisture build-up, and it has a rust-resistant black powder coat finish. The copper battery terminals and zinc-plated steel hardware are also corrosion resistant.

Power Unit with Sealed Contactor

Bulldog Winch Power Unit

The power unit transmits power from your ATV or UTV battery to the winch motor. There is an on/off switch on the front of the unit that lets you shut off the power to prevent accidental use. It has a rubber-sealed plug that won't let in water when the mini rocker switch is disconnected.

Bulldog Winch Contactor

The contactor - or solenoid - transmits power from the vehicle's battery to the winch motor. The 200-amp contactor - located inside the power unit - is sealed to meet IP67 specifications for water and weather resistance. The copper terminals and zinc-plated hardware are corrosion resistant.

Dynamic Brake

The dynamic brake uses resistance from the winch motor to control drum rotation. When the winch is pulling in or paying out the strap there is no resistance on the drum. When the power is stopped the drum does not rotate.

Since there is no physical brake device the winch is lighter and has a smaller profile than a winch with a mechanical braking system. This makes it easier to mount in places with limited space available.

Mini Rocker Switch with 8' Lead

Bulldog Winch Mini Rocker Switch

The hand-held mini rocker switch lets you control the winch from the seat of your ATV or UTV. It plugs into the sealed port on the power unit and unplugs for storage when not in use.

Polyester Strap

Bulldog Winch Polyester Strap

The 30" strap is made of high-strength polyester that is abrasion resistant, and it wraps around a solid steel drum. It is designed to easily lift a snowplow blade that weighs up to 600 lbs. And it's built to handle the constant spooling and unspooling required for a snowplow winch - unlike a wire rope that can fray or synthetic rope that can break.

Rugged Construction

BDW Winch Body

The winch is constructed of strong, durable materials that are designed to perform in cold, snowy weather. The motor and gearbox housing is made of corrosion-resistant powder coated steel, and the contactor is sealed to keep out water. The power unit is constructed of heavy-duty yet lightweight plastic. The steel tie bars and side frame drum supports help to create a strong and rigid winch body.


To install the winch on the front of your ATV or UTV you will need a suitable mounting location. Bolt or weld a custom mounting plate (sold separately) to the front frame on your ATV or UTV, then bolt the winch to the mounting plate using the included hardware.

The power unit includes a mounting plate and hardware for installation. Although the power unit can be mounted anywhere on your ATV or UTV, it typically mounts under the hood near the steering column. This will keep it protected from the elements and allow easy access to the on/off switch and remote plug.

The strap attaches to a pin or bolt on the back of your snowplow blade if one is available. Simply slide the pin or bolt through the sewn-in loop at the end of the strap. It can also attach to your snowplow blade with a bow shackle or a hook if no pin or bolt is available.

BDW Quick Connects

The power leads connect the winch's power unit to your ATV or UTV battery. A set of quick connects is included to let you easily disconnect the power leads when you need to remove the snowplow from your ATV or UTV.

Video Transcript for Bulldog Winch Snow Plow Parts - Snow Plow Accessories - BDW15021 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Bulldog winch Snow Plow Winch for ATV's and UTV's with a 600 pound capacity. This is a very compact, light duty winch that lets you easily raise and lower a snow plow blade up to 600 pounds from the seat of your ATV or UTV. It uses a .68 horsepower permanent magnet motor, it has a continuous duty cycle. It is designed to handle constant raising and lowering of the blade and it is a sealed motor housing to keep any water out and prevents internal corrosion. It does use an all steel single stage planetary gear train, it provides a quick drum speed. The strap on it is 1 1/2 inch wide polyester strap, which is very strong and weather resistant. It is 30 inches in length and it attaches to the plow blade, with a bow shackle or a hook, which resells separately on our website.

It does use a dynamic brake to prevent the blade from lowering unintentionally. Basically that means it uses the resistance from the motor to stop the drum rotation and prevent the strap payout. It is a very compact design. It allows the winch to fit in tight spaces. The motor and gear box unit is mounted to the side of the drum itself.

Now the mounting plate, which is sold separately, is required to install this to the front of your ATV or your UTV. It does have a nice durable black powder coated steel body and the motor to help resist corrosion. Now the control unit right here is a sealed 200 amp contactor, which transmits power from the vehicle's battery to the winch motor. The contractors are more efficient than a 60 to 80 amp relay switch, due to the higher current rating. This whole unit is in this plastic housing, which is water and weather resistance to IP 67 specs. Basically, you take these two covered connectors and connect right here to your motor and then this will plug into your plug in there that will connect to your battery.

The quick connectors will let you easily disconnect the power when you're removing the plow. Now the power unit itself includes the contactor on the inside. It has a nice plastic housing. The wiring has the on and off switch right up here at the top. It is designed to mount under the hood, with this included mounting plate and the hardware is included. Basically on the very back, if you notice this mounting plate will slide right up there.

You can mount this to wherever you need it to and then you can slide your power unit right onto the mounting plate. At the very top is the plug in. The plug in is for this hand held mini rocker switch, it has an eight foot lead to it. This will let you control the winch from the seat of your ATV or UTV. Basically this will just plug into the top of your power unit and then you have eight foot of length with the rocker switch right on the end here of the controller. Now a few specs on this. The maximum plow lift again is 600 pound capacity. The rated line plug on this is 2000 pounds static load. The gear ratio is 153 to 1. The power unit lead wire size is a 10 gauge wire. We had mentioned the rocker switch lead length is eight feet. Now they do recommend a battery size on your ATV or UTV of about 650 cold cranking amps for maximum power. The strap dimensions as we mentioned is 30 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide and an 1/8 inch thick. The winch itself is overall is 10 5/8 inches long, 4/16 and 5/16 wide and height is about 4 3/8 inches tall. The drum itself is a 3/4 inch diameter by 2 9/16 long and the weight of this with the strap on this is about 16 1/2 pounds, very compact in size. That should do it for the review on the Bulldog Winch Snow Plow Winch for ATV's and UTV's, with a 600 pound capacity.

Made my snow plow work again 756120

Perfect fit for my Snowbear 72" plow. I bought this Bulldog winch to serve as a backup. As you can see in the pictures, it is nearly identical to the old NWB3000, as well as the RTS3000, which broke (magnets crumbled inside). I did check mounting pattern and tested the motor to make sure it works, before putting it on the shelf. Added bonus I now have an extra controller and cables as well! 744582

Last year I bought the Bulldog winch to use as a rear lift for the tiller on my 36v,1971 E-15 Electrak garden tractor, after the original 15v , 1" wide strap, lift failed. Once I retrofitted the lift out-rigging to accept the Bulldog mounting pattern I was able to hook up the winch and attach the 2" strap directly to the tiller. I attached the mounting pad of the power/remote control unit to a rear fender and secured the power cables of the quick disconnect to 2, 6v batteries in series and finished connections to the winch. The new lift is far superior to the old system ... smoother with far less strain on the motor. I was able to till my 50' x 75' garden in record time due to the ease of lifting and dropping the 400 lb tiller without worrying about binding the strap in the spool. 489011

Strap on winch was 12" too short. We made extension to the winch now my plow can be used. Easy installation. Quick too. Once everything was ready. Smooth sailing. 452176

The winch showed up on time and the fit is a great replacement for my plows old winch. So far it works well. Easy to install. Customer service representative Donna was very helpful and knowledgeable. Hats off to her and her department. 449524

Still a great replacement for my old winch. Looking forward to another winter with it.

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Winch Snow Plow Parts

  • Is Fairlead Needed for Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch # BDW15021
    The Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch # BDW15021 referenced in your question uses a flat polyester strap. When used as a snowplow winch, which should just require direct up and down use, a fairlead is not necessary. The winch is designed to be used in this manner without a fairlead. I have attached a short video demonstration on this winch that you can also check out.

  • Can Winch Be Installed on ATV Snow Plow
    The Bulldog ATV Snowplow Winch # BDW15021 can be mounted directly to the snowplow provided there is a suitable place to mount it. You can refer to the linked image that shows how this winch can be installed on a plow frame that has the necessary mounting point.

  • Using Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch # BDW15021 on Polaris Ranger
    The Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch # BDW15021 referenced in your question is an excellent choice for your Polaris Ranger and it can indeed be used with a hook such as the Bulldog # BDW20119. I am not sure what the mounting hole pattern is on your existing plate but this winch features a 2-bolt mounting pattern, spaced apart 3-1/8 inches on center. You will just want to match this to what you have to see if new holes need to be drilled to mount the winch. I have attached a short video...

  • Dimensions of Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch BDW15021
    I checked with Bulldog winch and since this is a plow winch with only a 30 inch long strap the line speed isn't available. The dimensions are 10.7 inch by 4.4 inch, by 4.8 inch.

  • Snowplow Winch Compatible with 2010 Honda Rancher 420 ATV
    A good winch to use with a snowplow is the Bulldog Winch # BDW15021. I confirmed with Bulldog that this will mount onto your 2010 Honda Rancher 420 using the mounting plate # BDW15114.

  • Recommended Winch and Mounting Kit for a 2002 Polaris 400 Sportsman with a Plow
    I recommend going with the Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch # BDW15021 for your 2002 Polaris 400 Sportsman. This winch is specifically designed for snow plow applications and will do a great job with your setup. The mounting kit that you will want to go with is the Bulldog Winch Custom-Fit Steel ATV Winch Mount # BDW15157 which is compatible with both your Polaris and the LT2000. A review video for the winch has been linked for you to check out.

  • Electric Winch with Longer Strap for Helping Lift/Lower Trailer Ramp
    The longest rope/strap winches we offer will have 50 inch long straps/ropes like with the ComeUp Cub 2 Winch part # CU122390. There isn't a longer cable or strap available for any of the winches we offer so if 50 inches could work the ComeUp would be a really great option. The Bulldog Winch that you referenced only has 30 inches of strap length so it would not be as ideal.

  • What is the Capacity of Bulldog Winch Replacement OE Strap BDW20225
    Since strap # BDW20225 is a replacement for snow plow winch # BDW15021 it goes by the rating of the winch. In this case the winch is rated for 600 pounds so even though the strap can most likely handle more than that I can't recommend exceeding 600 pounds with this particular strap. We have other, similar straps rated higher including # SB263-323 rated for 2,000 pounds break strength (no rated working load limit listed) and # K2WS8020 rated for 3,000 pounds break strength and 1,500 pounds...

    For your 2015 Polaris Ranger 900, we will need the 2015 Polaris Ranger Bulldog Winch Custom-Fit Steel Winch Mount, # BDW15174. This custom mount will work with the Bulldog Winch Snowplow Winch - ATVs and UTVs - Polyester Strap - 600 lbs, # BDW15021, you asked about.
