Determining Your Load Capacity

A common ratio for determining your winch load capacity is 2:1. For example, a 2,000-lb boat would require a 1,100-lb winch. There are extenuating factors, however, that will determine the appropriate winch size for your purposes.

The ratio can be stretched to 3:1 in instances when the trailer in use has high-quality rollers and is most commonly used on ramps where boats float most of the way onto the trailer.

In contrast, using a boat trailer that has wooden bunks, lacks self-alignment capabilities, and is most commonly used on ramps where the boat must be winched most of the way onto the trailer reduces the ratio to 1:1.

Note that pontoon trailers and other special designs require special consideration when determining winch capacity.

Determining Your Rolling Load Capacity

drawing

To calculate your winch's rolling load capacity - the amount of weight it can pull up an incline - you must multiply the winch capacity by a factor determined by the degree of the incline.

The multiplication factor shown includes a 10 percent rolling friction factor. Note: A 5 percent - or 3 degree - incline is a 1/2' rise in 10'. Follow the chart to determine your winch's rolling load capacity.

Video Transcript for Review of Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - StrongArm Electric Winch Remote And Pulley Block - DL25040

Hi, everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today we're gonna take a look at this Dutton-Lainson strong arm electric winch with remote and pulley block. This is a 12 volt DC powered winch for horizontal pulling applications that will be powered by your vehicle's battery. I can see where this would be great to mount, perhaps on a trailer, and you're needing to pull heavy items onto your trailer, such as a vehicle. And, but I, I think there's gonna be multiple ways in which you can use this.

It has a load capacity of 3000 pounds and a double line capacity of 4,500 pounds. And that rating is based on a 10 foot pole. It does feature this built-in detachable, handheld remote with a 10 foot cord for loading and unloading. And it's really easy to connect this. You just need to line up the pins on the plug and it'll plug in very easily and then this remote will work for you.

And so just a great feature a very convenient feature that this winch offers. Now the high torque, 12 volt DC motor includes a circuit breaker and overload protection, and it comes with this quick connect wiring harness. And let me see, if I can show you how easy that is to connect. So I'm gonna turn this around and just line the plug up here. And as you can see it very easily connects, and just as easily disconnects.

It has a 25 foot positive battery wire and an eight foot ground wire. Now this has a dynamic motor brake and mechanical friction brake. The dynamic brake helps bring the load to an immediate halt without coasting and the mechanical brake locks the reel to hold the load. The spring loaded clutch lever allows you to release the load without power providing smooth load control from locked or free wheel position. So right now, I have it in the engaged position as indicated here at the top panel.

And then when you switch it over that way, you will be in the free wheel position. And then you'll be able to pull that line out but it is a spring loaded, automatic return to the block position when released. So that's another nice feature as you can see, it just will spring back to the engaged position. And that free wheel option, like I said, will allow you to remove that cable by hand and position there where you need it. Now, this has a flexible high strength, seven strand by 19 gauge galvanized aircraft cable, and a pulley block and snap hook are included for that double line pulling. And the cable is, as we said, 50 foot long making it great for double line operation. The safety snap hook will keep the load securely attached. You're not gonna have to worry about whatever you hook this to becoming easily detached. And the wire cable can be swapped out for a two inch wide strap if you so desire. Now, this double line pulling is achieved by taking this hook and hooking it somewhere close to the winch. And then you will pull with this pulley block and snap hook. And that's how you're going to obtain that greater pulling rate of 4,500 pounds. Now an emergency crank handle comes standard and there is a a cap right here that you would just simply remove. And then you, that will give you access to where you would be able to use that crank in case of power failure, and the heat treated gears are gonna provide smoother, quieter ride and strength and the precision needle bearings and high load areas create low friction and promote longer life. Let me see if I can flip this over to the bottom here just to show you the dye formed base and that's adapted for quick mounting applications and the high impact weather resistant case is gonna provide excellent protection for the internal components while at the same time being safer than open reel models. Now, the brush stainless steel front plate that you see here is gonna offer superior rust resistance. This is made in the USA. Just some other specs to go over with you is the current draw is 70 amps at 12 volts. And it is important to note that electric winches should be used intermittently. The maximum continuous run time is four minutes. The gear ratio is 570 to one. And again, we said the cable was 50 foot long, and it is 7 and 32 of an inch in diameter. And the load speed with no load and a full reel is five feet per minute. And with a full load and full reel is two feet per minute. And just some overall dimensions of the winch itself. The overall length we're sitting at about 11 inches. And then the overall width at the widest point we're sitting at about 9 inches. And then the overall height at the tallest point is sitting right at about 8 inches. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


The trailer winch is a huge help in allowing me to load my boat onto my trailer, especially this year (summer 2022) with water levels in most Minnesota lakes very low. The low water levels prevents the boat from floating up on the trailer in many cases - Muscle is required to pull the boat onto the trailer. This electric winch provides the muscle and saves my 65 year old body from the task.

I power the winch with a 12 volt jump starter and I've used it approximately 60 times thus far without problem. I keep the jump starter in the back of my SUV and then hook it up when I'm ready to load my boat on the trailer. This saves the trouble of wiring the car for the winch and it works perfectly.

Why 3 stars? Because the wiring at the connection from the remote cable to the winch was poorly done and failed within 1/2 year. I had to redo the 3 connections at the end of the remote cable and the 3 connections going into the winch. Very poor job by Dutton-Lainson connecting the wires to the connectors - Inexcusable for a $500 item.

I had a couple questions while installing the winch and etrailer was very helpful in answering those questions. This is why I buy from etrailer and not elsewhere. They both charge a similar price and the technical support that etrailer provides makes it a no brainer - I will always buy from etrailer.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Put this winch on my Ranger 620 boat trailer a year ago and love it! Haven't had a single problem and it helps trailering when I fish alone. I ran power and ground from my truck battery to a back bumper plug, and have a separate removable cable (shown in pic) to connect truck plug to the winch plug. Grounding to the truck didn't work for me. I have another spare cable and plug rolled up and attached to my trolling motor battery for when my buddies drive. Winch prevents power loading and drawing sand into the motor. DL24055 adapter plate was needed and I put a coupler lock up through the middle of the winch to prevent theft and I bought a cover (shown in pic) to keep the rain out. etrailer sales and support are absolutely fabulous! They helped me figure all this out.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I purchased this winch to replace a Fulton K2550 manual winch on my ham radio tower. My tower is 54 ft tall when extended and 21 ft when retracted. It takes about 170 turns of the winch to raise/lower the tower. I removed the hand winch and placed the D-L SA9010AC winch in the existing mounting holes. I like this winch since it comes with a stainless hub since it will be used outside. This winch has a 2700 lb load rating. I am lifting around 700 lbs. This winch comes with no cable or freewheeling clutch. I reused the 1/4" stainless cable on the winch. I raised the tower and it took 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Lowering took 2 minutes. Well within the maximun run time of 3 minutes. The cable length winched was 17 ft. I have raised and lowered the tower several times to work on the antenna's and it worked properly every time. Attached are several pictures of the installation. I already recommended this winch to another ham operator.


Comments
I too am considering this winch. I have a US towers 455, about the same height you reference, that came with a Fulton 1550 and I have upgraded to a 2550 and then a 3000. But still takes too much effort. So my question is: are you still happy with this winch? How long have you had it? Any issues at all?Thanks,
-- comment by: Fred S - 07/30/2014
Hi Fred,Yes, I am still happy with the winch. It has been on a couple months so far. Only comment I forgot was, the optional cover for the winch is very snug when you have to keep the remote and gfi plug covered. I think I will be making a separate waterproof cover for those two parts so the winch cover will fit better
-- comment by: Joer S - 08/01/2014
Actually, I have become dissatisfied with the Fulton 3000. I tried attaching a Hawg drill like so many have suggested. It worked the first summer, but after a winter exposure, the drill tore it up this spring. I have spent the last few weeks investigating motorized winches and finally ordered the Stong Arm Dutton-Liason. It looks very much like a 2550 with a cover and ac motor and is stainless mostly. It hasnt come yet so I will let you know next year how it is doing.

I am a 77 year old man and having to hand winch my small sailboat up on a shore ramp that I have. It was getting to be a bit much, so I decided to look into a 12volt winch. The Dl25200 fit the bill, works great. I have a 12volt battery next to it and a 10 , watt solar charger to keep the battery up, I hope. Time will tell. The service at etrailer was great, good price and fast shipping. Thanks

Works great. I use it on a 19 foot Lund Impact and a roller trailer without a problem. I recommend this product.

Great on a boat trailer. Makes loading a breeze. A wireless remote would make this winch even better. Currently in use with a 19 foot Lund boat on a Shorelander roller trailer.

To whom it may concern,

The power
cable that came with the winch is 4' short. It was mounted on the front of a boat trailer and I have a full size pick up.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I had to grind a little bit off the gussets on the mounting plate on my Tracker trailer to mount the winch but the bolt pattern was perfect. The electric cable that was provided with the winch wasn't quite long enough for my 4 door F150 so I used my wife's Explorer with the cable provided and got a longer cable and fuse for my pickup and then put a plug at the rear of both vehicles and a plug to the winch so I can use either vehicle. The winch pulled our 16'Tracker boat up on the trailer easily and I discovered you had tighten the gear locking mechanism quite snug or it would slip. I noticed the pulling belt on the winch is not quite as heavy as the one on my hand winch and I plan on swapping it out. Other than that, I am happy with my purchase.

I installed this on my Bavaria sailboat to lift the aft bathing platform up and down. A little bit slower and louder than the original system but this has the manual override which is invaluable if/when there is an electrical problem. Their customer service was outstanding.

It pulls my boat onto the trailer with ease and it always worked. The big thing for me is how long will it last. If it works as well in 5 or 10 years I'll give it five stars.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


Good quality, works fine although it grunts a bit on the last couple of feet. I appreciate the use of a pretty universal power connector. Changes of or additional vehicles made so much easier. Like the strap rather than wire rope.

  • Is there an Electric Winch with an 80 Foot Long Cable
    I do have a solution for you but because you need such a long cable no electric winches will have the capacity for an 80 foot long cable. What I recommend is to use a worm gear winch with a hex drive, # DL11004. This will allow you to use an electric drill to power the line in and out. If you go with a 7/32" cable it can hold up to 82 feet of that size. However the longest 7/32" cable we have is 50 feet. So I can provide the winch just not a cable that long.

  • Mounting a Winch in a Boat House to Pull a Boat Up a Launch Ramp
    I am assuming the boat is on a trailer when stored in the boat house which will make things a lot easier. So basically what you could do is use a winch that can pull/lower the trailer and boat up and down the ramp. To load the boat on the trailer you would need to mount a winch to the trailer. For a winch to mount in the boat house you could just go with a hand winch such as # F143201, which has an automatic brake, with cable # DL24100. If the boat house has AC power then you could use...
