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 Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Electric Winch - DL25720 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Dutton Lainson StrongArm electric winch. Now, this winch is built for multipurpose hauling and pulling operations. It does feature the built-in detachable handheld remote. This allows you to control the line in and line out functions from a safe distance. When we say built in, what you gotta do is just plug this unit in right here to the port that's built into the body of the winch.When it comes to the braking, we're looking at two different braking systems on this unit. We have a dynamic motor break, which helps bring the load to an immediate stop without coasting, and we have a mechanical friction brake, which locks the reel to hold the load.

The clutch lever is located right here on the side of the unit, it has two positions. You have your engaged gear position, and then you have a freewheel position and you just rotate it that direction. Move it to a freewheel mode, and that option allows the table to be removed by hand quickly and easily. This is a high-torque, 12-volt DC motor. It includes circuit breaker overload protection.

Comes with the necessary wiring harness. We're looking at the cabling that's included. This is a flexible high-strain, seven-strand by 19-gauge galvanized aircraft cable. It also has the pulley block and snap hooks included for double line pooling. This is 50 feet of cable, which is great for double line operation, and each hook has that safety latch or safety snap hook, which keeps the load securely attached.It also comes with an emergency crank handle that comes standard and it is designed for use in the event of power failure.

The area where you insert that is located right here on the side. You remove this plug to gain access to the connection point for that manual crank handle. Now, internally, the unit features heat treated gears to provide smoother, quieter operation and greater strength. We're looking at precision needle bearings in high load areas to create low friction and promote longer life. Also, it has the die-formed base.

This is adaptive for quick mounting applications. That's designed to be a universal mount and it does work in a variety of situations or for a variety of applications.The casing is a high-impact, weather-resistant case, provides excellent protection for internal components. It's also safer than open reel models. Right here on the front, we have the brushed stainless steel front plate for superior rust resistance. The product's made in the USA. When it comes to the load capacity, we're looking at about 1,500 pounds. Double Line capacity is 2,200 pounds and that rating is based on 10-foot of pull. The current draw, 70 amps at 12 volts. Electric wenches should be used intermittently, so the maximum continued runtime is . continuous run time is four minutes. For this unit, gear ratio is 189-to-one, and when it comes to your load speed and feet per minute, no load full reel is 16 feet per minute. Full load full real is 4.5 feet per minute. It's a really nice winch. Again, you got the handheld remote right here, allows you to control the in and out functions from a safe distance. You got your wiring harness, fuse protected. Really, the last thing I want to go over is just the measurements here of the unit and the base.We're going to take a look at the mounting plate. Measures around 8 3/4 inches that direction. Then side to side, this direction. It measures around 3 and . inaudible 00:03:54 say about 3 7/8 inches side to side. When it comes to the overall measurements of the unit, if we take a measurement of the overall length . I'm going to measure from the back of the unit to the front of the unit, and I'm getting a measurement of about 10 3/4 inches. The overall height, tallest point, which is right here at this point, I'm going to say that that measures about 8, maybe 8 1/4 inches tall. Then the overall width, going edge to edge . to the outer edge of this handle here. I'm going to say that's about 8 1/4 inches wide. That's going to do it for today's look at the Dutton Lainson StrongArm electric winch.

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

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I installed this winch as a replacement for the standard winch on my Magic Tilt trailer for my 21ft. SeaFox. I replaced the winch so that my wife would not have to hand crank when helping me load the boat. I only wish I'd done it sooner! It works like a charm, the install was simple and it has held up well. I keep the winch covered with a tarp to keep the rain off of it and I'm sure that has helped. The SeaFox weighs about 3000# plus the weight of the motor, fuel and whatever other junk we've got onboard. If you are looking for a good electric winch to make your life easier, I recommend this one.


Comments
After a year of use, we are still very pleased with our purchase and would still recommend this winch.

I just used it for the second time on my 19 ft Lund boat works great! Could not believe it bolted to the same bolt holes of easy load trailer crank wrench.

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


Comments
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.

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


I ordered 2 of these for my double wave runner boat lift. I waited to review until I had used them for a while. They have been in use for over a month and are just fantastic. They are plenty powerful enough to raise an 850 lb boat and does it very quickly...45 seconds. And that's on an extremely high "heavy water lift" as I live on a Great Lake. Both are hooked to one battery and one charger and even with a busy weekend of guests riding on and off all day they do not even slow, meaning they are not over draining the battery. 2 of my neighbors want in on this success and are now ordering. Well built and looks like they will last a long time. One neighbor has one that is over 10 years old.




by:

Review from a similar StrongArm in Trailer Winch


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.
