Winch Recommendation for Loading Flower Carts in an Enclosed Trailer


I am looking for a winch to pull flower carts loaded with plants into my enclosed trailer. I had one years ago in my old trailer, while I had a broken collar bone. Dont remember what it was but I found that it worked good except it was so slow. As soon as I was recovered I didnt use it anymore because of the slow speed, it was way faster to push up on my own. In my new trailer I have taller carts and it sometimes requires two of us to push them into the trailer.

The Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15017 that you referenced is an excellent choice that I believe you will be happy with. It has a line speed of 15 FPM (feet per minute) with no load and then a line speed of 5 FPM at the full 3,400 lb capacity. If you check out the attached video of us using this winch to load a golf cart you can see how quickly it pulls the line in. A wireless remote is also available as part # BDW20212 if you want more flexibility in where you are when you are using it.

If you are wanting something a little more cost-effective then we also have the Bulldog Winch # BDW15008 rated at 10-1/2 FPM with no load and 3 FPM under the full 2,000 lb capacity. I have attached a review video for this option as well where we are loading the same golf cart. This winch does not have the wireless remote option.
