Expert Answers about Electric Winch


  • 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...

  • How Long is the Wire on the 12K Bulldog Winch and Wiring Needed to Connect to Vehicle Battery
  • The battery cable on the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW10039 is 6' long. Since you are wanting to run this off of the vehicle battery you will need larger gauge wire but but only from the vehicle battery to a quick disconnect like the Bulldog Winch Quick-Connect Set # BDW20133. You would then need enough 2 gauge wire to reach from your vehicle battery to the rear of your vehicle. We have the Bulldog Winch Rear Wiring Kit # BDW20207 which comes with the quick disconnects, wiring, and...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Can the Superwinch Winch 2 Go Portable Winch
  • This is a great question! According to my contact at Superwinch, a jump box would give you enough power for single full-length pull with the # SW1140222. A fully charged 230-Ah motorcycle battery would do about the same.

  • Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate For Bulldog BDW66FR Trailer Winch
  • What you're needing is a receiver winch mount like part # 6495. The mount will work in a 2 inch receiver on the rear or front of a vehicle.

  • Hoist Winch Needed For Lifting Cargo Near Salt Water
  • Ideally you would want to use a hoist winch that is rated for a boat trailer as those have a much more resistant coating to water than a typical winch will have. I do have a solution for you, but unfortunately none of our manual or electric boat winches are rated for hoisting cargo, only for horizontal pulling. For your application you can either go with an electric hoist winch like part # BD500410 or a manual hoist winch like part # DL10952. The manual option does have a way that you...

  • 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...

  • Electric Trailer Winch for Pulling 13,000 lb Skid Loader Onto Trailer
  • You will need a heavy-duty winch in order to pull a 13,000 lb skid loader onto your trailer, and we do have a really good option. Assuming your skid loader is going to be a rolling load instead of a static load, you can use a winch with a line pull capacity of less than 13,000 lbs because a rolling load does not require the same amount of force to winch.

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.

  • Solution for Connecting Trailer Winch to Tow Vehicle Battery
  • I have a solution for you to connect the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW10039 to your vehicle's battery, but it will not work well for you to connect the winch to the vehicle's 7-way connector. The highest gauge wire a 7-Way connector is compatible with is 10 gauge wire. A winch will use either 2 or 3 gauge wire for power. The best way to easily connect the trailer winch # BDW10039 to your vehicle's battery is to use a Winch Wiring Kit. With the winch's 12,000 pound capacity, you...

  • AC Powered Electric Winch for 100-Foot Winching Distance
  • The AC-powered winch I suggest for your application is the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL24872 which is rated for 2700-lbs. This winch includes a 25-foot winch cable with hook. This winch will accept a 7/32 cable up to 90-feet long so you could replace the cable with part # BDW20223 which is 55-feet and link a strap or other wire rope of your preference. Note that my contact at Dutton-Lainson mentioned this winch has a 3-minute duty cycle so to avoid overheating you'll...

  • Winch Recommendation for Race Car Trailer with 2,500 lb Car
  • The Bulldog Winch part # BDW15020 would be a great option for your setup. This is a 4,400 lb 12 volt winch which uses a synthetic rope instead of a steel cable. It powers in and out and has a built in brake as well. The winch also moves at 19 feet per minute when there is a lighter load like your race car. For rolling loads like a car this has a 44,000 lb capacity so it would easily move your car and do it quickly as well.

  • Winch Recommendation for Car Hauler for Moving up to 5,000 lb Cars
  • The Bulldog Winch part # BDW10031 would be a great winch for your application. You would want to center the drum with the center of your trailer so that when pulling the vehicle onto the trailer it would be pulling it straight and not to the side. 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.

  • Bulldog Winch Powersports Series ATV Winch Part # BDW15002 Only Works One Way
  • I have attached a photo of the wiring diagram for the Bulldog Winch Powersports Series ATV Winch part # BDW15002 and I have emailed the owner's manual to you separately as well. For further reference, if the winch only extends and doesn't retract or vise versa then odds are the relay just went bad and you do not need to replace the entire Power Unit part # BDW20115 to fix this, just the relay part # BDW20101 which you may want to just get a few extras of.

  • Recommended Bulldog Electric Winch and Related Items for Car Hauler Trailer
  • We can help you with an electric winch and wiring kit for installation on the tongue of your tilt-bed car hauler trailer. Winches, like jacks, are best selected with a healthy safety margin in their weight capacity. For example, for an actual need of 1000-lbs using a jack or winch rated for let's say twice that will offer benefits such as reduced wear and improved reliability. Often a product used well below its maximum capacity will tend to last longer. A rolling item like a disabled...

  • Option for Mounting Winch in Toy Hauler Cargo Area Floor
  • What a lot of people do to mount a winch like the Superwinch Tiger Shark Series # SW1595200 to the floor of a trailer is use a hitch mount like the part # C31010 and then fabricate a hitch opening to the floor of the trailer like the # E-11 welded to the frame or a crossmember of it. You'd have to cut a hole in the floor to accomplish this. The hitch mount route allows the winch to easily be removed from the trailer if needed as well.

  • Capacity of Superwinch 3K Winch Pulling a Rolling Load Up a 30 Percent Incline
  • Superwinch LT3000ATV Winch - 3K Item # SW1130220 can handle 2,000 pounds on a 30 percent incline but keep in mind the higher the capacity on the winch the easier it will be on the winch. You can go up to a 4,400 pound winch # BDW15019 for not much of a price increase. But the step above that, 5,800 pounds # BDW10029, carriers a more significant increase in price. You can double the capacity of a winch by using a pulley block such as # BDW20004 with a hook, # EM59505, bolted at the front...

The winch features a 2,700 pound load capacity and includes a 10 foot cord and a built-in hand-held remote.

  • 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...

  • The Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch - Synthetic Rope - Hawse Fairlead - 4,400 lbs # BDW15020 is a really great winch designed for utility trailer use. It is able to be used as a boat trailer winch, but it has a slower run time with a long recovery cycle. The Dutton-Lainson TW4000 StrongArm Electric Winch - Marine - 4,000 lbs # DL25200 is my recommendation with almost twice as fast a line speed under load and nowhere near the amperage draw. This will serve you better for your 4,500 lb...

  • What is the Duty Cycle of the Bulldog Winch Off-Road Winch # BDW10045

It is always wise to get a winch that is rated for more weight than the item you will be towing. This winch has a 2 minute maximum continuous run time. After that you need to let it cool. It has a line speed of 62 FPM (feet per minute) at 0 lbs but that changes to 5 FPM at the full 9,500 lbs. If you would like to leave your...

Please keep in mind that the Superwinch LT2000 Electric Utility Winch, # 1120210, has a line pull capacity of 2,000 pounds.

  • Can the Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15017 be Mounted on Front Rail of Trailer
  • The Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15017 actually comes with its own mounting bracket.

If you plan on just leaving the winch on your trailer then this is perfectly acceptable as I confirmed this with my contact at Bulldog Winch. If you have a way to customize a bracket on your...

  • Changing From Wire Rope to Synthetic Rope for Superwinch Terra 45 ATV Winch
  • We can get you set up to replace the wire rope on your Superwinch Terra 45 # SW1145220 with synthetic rope, but you'll need a hawse fairlead in order to so because synthetic rope with a roller fairlead can damage the winch as it runs the risk of getting caught in the corners. A hawse fairlead mounts to the tabs on the winch mounting plate so you'll need to measure the distance between them, and will likely be able to use the Replacement Hawse Fairlead for Bulldog Winch ATV Winch # BDW20089...
