Expert Answers about Electric Winch


  • Correct Winch Mounting Plate for Class I Hitch
  • Yes, the Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver Winch Mounting Plate Item # 6495 can also be used on the hitch on the back of your SUV. The issue here is that you have a Class I trailer hitch and the Draw-Tite Winch Mounting Plate # 6495 fits into 2" hitch receivers. A better fit for you will be the Bulldog Winch ATV Winch Mounting Plate for 1-1/4" Hitches # BDW20316. This will fit into your 1-1/4" Class I hitch and is compatible with Bulldog Winches like the Bulldog Utility Winch # BD54FR.

  • How to Choose Winch Capacity and Parts Needed for Quick Connect Winch Wiring
  • Long story short, that's not going to work for you even with a double line pull using a snatch block like the # CU881079. In reality, you need at least 1.5x the GVWR of your vehicle when it comes to winch capacity. The # BDW10044 I mentioned as a better choice would be the bare minimum you'd be able to get away with and still be able to recover your 2019 Nissan Frontier from a situation that required a winch. The 6000-lb capacity ComeUp # CU854768 is not going to work with your 4700-lb...

  • Is There a Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch With Wireless Remote
  • We do have options for winches that have a wireless remote, but each of the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm winches, such as the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch with Remote, AC Powered - 2,700 lbs # DL25019 come with remotes that are wired in. I recommend checking out the ComeUp UW-5000si Trailer Winch - Wireless Remote # CU645010. This is the lightest-duty winch with a wireless remote that works from up to 90 feet away and has a 5,000 lb static load pull rating. I have added...

  • Synthetic Rope Winch for Enclosed Trailer with Drag Truck
  • For your enclosed trailer the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch part # BDW15020 would be a great option for pulling in your drag truck as it has a 4,400 lb capacity and was designed for this type of application. Or if you wanted something that would work a little faster the ComeUp trailer winch # CU645010 would be a really great option. It has a faster motor with a higher capacity which is what allows it to be faster.

  • What Winch do You Recommend for Pulling a 3,500 Pound Car on a Trailer?
  • I have a great winch solution for you. Unfortunately, the Bulldog Utility Winch - Wire Rope - Roller Fairlead # BD54FR is only rated to pull up to 2,500 pounds. With that being said, I recommend the Superwinch Winch 2 Go Portable Winch - Synthetic Rope - Hawse Fairlead # SW1140232. Not only does the Winch 2 Go provide you with 4,000 pounds of line pull strength, it also comes with straps, blocks, shackles to make your pulling headache-free.

  • Does Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch Come with Switch to Power Line In and Out
  • The Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch # 1120210 does come with a switch that allows you to power the line in or out. It looks more like a rocker switch and will be permanently installed (see attached photo). If you were thinking of something more like a handheld remote then I recommend checking out the Bulldog Utility Winch # BD54FR which has a port that you plug the handheld up to when you need to use it.

  • What Size Battery Should I Use With My Badland Winch 2500
  • The amount of cold cranking amps you need depends on how much you plan to lift/pull. The Badland Winch 2500 has an amp draw of 132amps at 2500 lbs, so any car battery should do. I would recommend including a charger in your setup. I recommend the OptiMate 6 Smart Battery Charger w/ Temperature Compensation - AC to DC - 12V/24V - 6 Amp/3 Amp part # MA84JR. This charger is designed to plug into a wall outlet. It is also a smart charger, so it will adjust and maintain the charges according...

It comes with load in and load out capability, so you can raise and lower your pop-up trailer. This winch can be free-spooled in the out position and it comes with a load-holding mechanical brake.

  • Winch For Long Distance Recovery
  • Your best bet is to get a recovery rope that can connect to your pump and then have that rope connect to the winch. We do not have a winch that can carry that much cable in it's spool, but have a bunch of winches that can carry that kind of weight like a Standard Series Winch # BDW10041. I definitely recommend getting an electric winch just because I wouldn't want to be the guy stuck with cranking the manual winch # F143201 by hand!

  • How Do I Troubleshoot No Power on My Superwinch Terra 35 Winch?
  • From the sounds of your issue, you have either the Terra 35 # SW1135230 or the # SW1135220. The first thing that I recommend is to try both the rocker switch and the handlebar switch to help rule out a switch issue. Also, it is important to rule out any frays on the wiring as well. If you need help testing any of the wires for power, I recommend using the circuit tester # PTW2993. As an absolute last resort (given that everything is wired correctly), it could be an issue with the solenoid....

  • Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate For Bulldog BDW66FR Trailer Winch

  • Winch for Lifting and Suspending 2,000 lb Load
  • The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL24962 is designed for straight pulling and not really vertical pulling. Even if you were to mount it on a wall so the vertical pull would technically be a straight pull the winch wouldn't be able to suspend a load. Instead you need a winch that is designed to suspend a heavy load like that. For your application you need a worm gear hand winch. These operate much slower and are hand cranks (although you can connect a power drill) but they...

The lightest winch with at least a 15,000 lb capacity is 77 lbs, the Bulldog Winch Alpha Series Off-Road Winch - Synthetic Rope - Hawse Fairlead - 15,000 lbs # BDW10048.

  • Is the etrailer ATV Winch Compatible with the Mounting Plates on a Polaris Ranger

  • Line Speed of Bulldog Utility Winch BD54FR
  • Winch gear ratios aren't normally given for electric winches since they do not have a handle that gets cranked by hand which is what the ratio is factored with. So the best info I can give you on the Bulldog Winch part # BD54FR is the line speed when it has no load and line speed with its full load. When there is not load the line moves at 16.4 feet per minute and draws 30 amps and then at a full load of 2,500 lbs it moves at 4.2 feet per minute and draws 200 amps.

  • Electric Winch for Loading Logs Onto Trailer
  • The right winch for you will really depend on the weight capacity you're needing. For instance, the Bulldog Winch # BDW10042 you'd looked at has a 9500 lb capacity, but when a pulley block like # BDW20077 is used, you'll double the pulling capacity of the winch. The Bulldog Winch you'd looked at would actually be a pretty good choice for this application. I'd imagine the logs you'll be dealing with will weigh quite a bit less than the capacity offered by this winch, but choosing a winch...

  • Can the 9,500 lb Off-Road Bulldog Winch be Used to Pull Trailer Up Driveway
  • Since you are pulling your trailer up at a 35 degree incline and there will be multiple layers wrapped around the winch (as that makes a difference) the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch # BDW10042 rated at 9,500 lbs is exactly what you need. Installing it with a battery at the top of your driveway is a great idea. One thing to keep in mind is that the winch has a continuous run time of 2 minutes. At 0 lbs the line speed is 19 FPM (Feet Per Minute) but at the full 9,500 lbs your line speed...

  • Winch Capacity Needed To Pull 4000lb Vehicle Into Enclosed Trailer
  • A Superwinch LT2500 has a 2500 lb line pull capacity. For a rolling load like a car with fully inflated tires, a winch with a capacity equal to the weight of the vehicle, in your case 4000 lbs is recommended. This means that your winch has about half the needed capacity to pull that vehicle up a 12% slope into the trailer. If a pulley block like # BDW20005 is used, you'll effectively double the capacity of your winch which would do the trick for you and allow you to load the trailer, but if...

  • Option for Mounting Electric Trailer Winch to Floor of Car Hauler Trailer

It has a 4,000 lb line pull capacity but please keep in mind that the vehicle, assuming the wheels turn freely is considered a rolling load so the actual line pull strength needed to move the vehicle will be far less than the actual weight of the vehicle.

Having the winch in the very front of the trailer would not be a problem either. That's generally where most people mount winches. The cable is 47-1/2 feet long so that wouldn't be an issue at all.
