Expert Answers about Trailer Winch


  • Ceiling Rack/Hoist Recommendation for Storing 100 lb Canoe
  • Only worm gear winches should be used for hoisting thing like like a canoe as they are the only ones rated for that. For a winch the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10954 would work great as it has more than enough capacity. It also can be mounted to the ceiling. Another solution you may like is the Thule MultiLift Cargo Lift part # TH572 which is designed for storing a canoe like what you have on the ceiling. It has a 220 lb capacity as well so it would have more than enough...

  • Hand Winch Compatible with a Powered Drill For Lifting and Lowering a Gate
  • The Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch part # DL10808 has a braking mechanism that locks in place when the handle is released. In order to obtain a ratcheting mechanism with this winch you will want to replace the handle with the Brake Winch Ratcheting Replacement part # DL70346. When used in place of the regular handle, it allows the operator to both raise and lower the load without turning the handle a full revolution. As long as your gate does not exceed 1,200 lbs, this winch...

  • Recommended Electric Winch for Boathouse and 3000-lb Boat/Trailer
  • I suggest the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25001 for your fixed-mount boathouse installation. This 12V-powered winch has a 3000-lb load capacity and operates at 4-feet per minute when under a full load. It includes a 25-foot cable and hook. If you need an AC-powered version use part # DL25046 which has a 50-foot cable. Both can be used with a 2-inch strap like # DL24250 and both have a continuous run time limit of 4 minutes before cool-down.

  • Recommended Replacement for Valley Industries 2-Speed 2,800 lb Winch
  • The 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch part # 315-W3200D would be an excellent option to replace a Valley Industries 2-Speed 2,800 lb Winch. It will hold a slightly higher weight capacity at 3,200 lbs and retains the two speed operation. It also comes with an integrated strap and clevis hook so it's ready to go. You can always switch out for a cable if you wish but straps are better for boats. The winch does have a brake that self locks the crank while not in motion.

  • Determining Boat Capacity of Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215
  • The 4,800 pound break strength strap that was included with your Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 actually should not need to be replaced. The included strap, like the winch itself, features a working load capacity of 3,000 pounds but can handle a boat of up to 9,000 pounds. If your trailer is equipped with high-quality rollers and is typically used on ramps where the boat will essentially float most of the way onto the trailer, a 3:1 ratio can be used for winches.

  • How to Pick Out a Winch for a Boat Trailer
  • Generally when picking out a winch for a boat trailer the ratio is 2 to 1 meaning you would need a winch with roughly half the capacity as the weight of the boat. With good rollers and a short winching distance the ratio increases to 3 to 1, but with long winching distances and wooden bunks like what you currently have the ratio is 1 to 1. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14725 should work well for you. It has a 2,000 lb capacity and has a small enough mounting plate that it should...

  • Recommended Replacement Winch For A Fulton T2605 Hand Winch
  • The winch you reference has actually been discontinued as well as the replacement shaft you're looking for. With that being said, the best option is to replace the entire unit with a newer unit. I know this isn't what you wanted to do, however with the winch you have and the replacement parts being discontinued, this is the best option.

  • Can Synthetic Wire Rope be Used with Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
  • I spoke with my contact at Dutton-Lainson regarding the 2-Speed Hand Winch # DL14881 that you referenced. She stated that they do not recommend using synthetic wire rope with any of their winches. This is because of how synthetic rope will get tighter as it stretches, which over time can actually cause damage to the winch drum. For this particular winch, I instead recommend using the cable # DL24104. This galvanized aircraft cable measures 50 feet long and includes a safety hook. I...

The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11004 has a hex drive topwind handle that you can operate by hand while it sits on the floor of your trailer or with a drill and a 5/8" socket.

  • Recommended Winch To Replace Shelby 5438 On Pop Up Camper

  • Can DL Powered Winch # DL25215 be Used for 24 Foot Long Pontoon Boat
  • Electric winches like the Powered Winch # DL25215 take all of the work out of winching in a boat at a boat ramp. Basically you just have to connect the strap and press a button and you're good. This would have more than enough capacity for a 24 foot long pontoon as well. Since this winch will pull up to 70 amps you'll need to install a deep cell battery on your trailer as your trailer wiring connector power source will not be strong enough.

  • Recommended Strap for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DL14725
  • Yes, the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook part # DL24251 will work just fine with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL14725. However, please note that you will be limited to the weight capacity of the winch which is 2,000 lbs because it is lower than that of the strap which is 4,000 lbs but this won't cause any issues it is just something that you need to be conscious of.

  • Winch Assembly and Strap Replacement for Personal Watercraft Trailer

  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL11004 can be used with a power source like a standard cordless drill to speed up the process of extending and retracting the winch line. It is not recommended however to use an impact style driver on it however because of the impact mechanism putting alot of torque out repeatably and could cause issues with the drive of the winch. To use a regular cordless drill you will use a 5/8" socket attached to a driver attachment.

  • The minimum 50lb weight load on the Pro Series Standard Brake Winch - Cable Only - 1,000 lbs Item # PSKR10000301 is required for the brake function to work properly. This is set by the manufacturer. If there is not a minimum of 50lbs then the brake feature on the winch may not engage. The 50lbs of pressure is what activates the brake feature. If you are concerned that you may be too close, you can always add some kind of weight down near the hook. This winch is also designed only to be...

  • Recommended Hand Winch for a Pacific Boat Trailer
  • For your Pacific boat trailer, I recommend using the Fulton 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Heavy Duty Strap part # F142424. This winch has a zinc plating for extreme corrosion resistance, two speed handle for faster cranking, and a twenty foot strap with included safety hook. It has a 3,200 lb weight capacity which will be more than sufficient for your 4,500 lb boat as you have bunk boards and the boat is a rolling load. It comes with a five year warranty. I have attached a review video for...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation that has a Hex Drive for a Drill
  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 does not have a hex head that is fixed and would allow you to use an electric drill attachment. For that I recommend using worm gear winch # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out. Worm gear winches are brake winches so when you stop turning the drum, either with the handle or a drill, it will hold the load. There is also no minimum load required. This winch can accept up to a 82...

  • How Long is the Crank Arm of the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Hand Winch
  • The arm of the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Hand Winch - 20' Strap - 1,200 lbs # MT50156 is 9-1/4" long, but whether or not it interferes with your PWC is really going to depend on where you mount it. Depending on how your trailer is configured you may just be able to move it up a few inches to keep it out of the way.

  • Which Battery Is Recommended For Badland 9000lb Winch?
  • I was not able to find any ballard winches, but perhaps you mean Badland winch? I looked at the owner's manual for the Badland 9000lb truck/suv winch and they recommend a battery with a minimum of 650 cold cranking amps (CCA). If you are hooking the winch up to a battery that is not on your vehicle and you plan to use it frequently, then I recommend going with a deep cycle / marine grade battery that has at least 650 CCA. This will hold up better since it is made to be drained and recharged...

  • Does the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Come With a Strap
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - Worm Gear - Hex Drive - 2,000 lbs # DL11004 accepts a 2" wide x 20' long winch strap which is sold separately. For a winch strap that fits this hand winch, I recommend the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, 2" Wide x 20' Long - 4,000 lbs. # DL24242. This strap will fit the # DL11004 and has a breaking strength of 4,000 lbs. It is designed to be used with winches with a capacity up to 2,600 lbs, and includes the mounting hardware.

  • Can Dutton-Lainson Winch Pull Kayak on Ladder Rack
  • Yes, I think it could work to pull your kayaks on top of your ladder racks by using the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL16001. Of course, I wouldn't be able to say with 100 percent certainty that this is going to be a perfect solution and you won't encounter any issues because this is not something we have tried and it's not what the winch was designed for, but people use winches for all types of different situations. But with that disclaimer, yes, you will be able to lift your kayaks...

  • Comparing Dutton-Lainson Brake vs Worm Drive Hand Winches
  • The main benefit of a worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL10970 over a brake winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL74FR is that worm gear winches don't have a minimum load requirement. If you're consistently over the minimum load requirement then I recommend using a brake hand winch as it will be faster.

  • Recommended Replacement Boat Trailer Winch For Fulton 594 Single Speed Winch
  • For the most similar replacement for your Fulton 594 we have the Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch # F142306. Like your 594 this winch is rated for 1,800lbs of capacity and features a 4.1:1 gear ratio. This winch comes with a 20' strap included and a 9" handle. I recommend the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Adjustable Handle # FW20000301 as the better replacement. It is rated for 2,000lbs of capacity and has a 5.1:1 gear ratio which will make it easier to turn. The handle...

  • Will Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL10970 Work to Hoist Fishing Kayak
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL10970 that you referenced is a great solution for helping to unload your 200 pound fishing kayak and suspend it in the air. The winch features a 2,000 pound weight capacity and can be used with winch cable like # DL24104. Worm gear winches like this one work really well for hoisting objects since they don't have a free wheel option and the load can't reverse the direction of the winch.

  • Recommended Winch for Loading Cars On and Off of a Flat Bed Trailer
  • Pulling cars onto a trailer will undoubtedly require pulling the vehicle up an incline, which will add extra resistance to the equation. If you are pulling a rolling load, not dragging the car and no flat tires, up just a slight incline like a 3 degree slope the weight capacity of the winch can be multiplied by 6.67 times, see hand winch article, Winching on an Incline, which I have linked for you to review. A steeper incline causes more resistance and reduces the rolling load capacity...

The remote is wired, but it does allow you to move up to 10 feet away from the winch so you can guide your boat. I've attached a review video to help with some of the specific details as well as a help article for getting the winch wired for use.

  • Winch Recommendation that Moves Easily to Other Side
  • For a winch that you can move the handle to the left side you can use # FW16000101. This winch is specifically designed to allow the handle to be installed on either side easily so it would work the best for you. This winch has a much lower capacity though at 1,600 lbs but the crank moves very easily. In the weight range of the Dutton Lainson we don't have anything that easily swaps to the other side.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Hand Winch For Hoisting Piece of Steel Sculpture
  • You're certainly on the right track. The handle on a worm gear winch would indeed rotate in such a way that it wouldn't hit the tree. A worm gear also has the advantage of not freewheeling when you let go of the handle, so the load won't get away from you. The Dutton-Lainson # DL10974 worm gear winch you mentioned is a good choice, but the one problem with worm gear winches is the gear ratio. 40:1 is a common gear ratio for a worm gear winch. This means that the handle will need to be...

You may also end up needing some pulley blocks such as # CU881080 for changes in the direction of the line(s) if not always a straight line pull.

  • Can The 7-Way Trailer Connection Be Used To Power Winch If Vehicle Is Running
  • The wiring that feeds the 12-volt accessory circuit on the 7-way trailer connector is of too small a gauge to allow enough power to pass through to run a winch. The main function of that circuit would be for lighter-duty applications, such as providing power for interior trailer lights or to maintain a trailer mounted battery.

There is no freewheel mode and no paw or switch to move in order to go between cranking in and out. this winch does have a brake that automatically holds the load if you let go of the handle (with a minimum of 50 pounds pulling on the line). But once you start cranking again the brake should let go. On these winches some of the mechanism is contained inside the covered part that the handle attaches to. If there...

For a strap I recommend using the Fulton Heavy-Duty Winch Strap with Hook - 20' x 2" - 4,000 lbs # FWS20HD0200, which is a 2" wide strap.

You can use this to help you find the appropriate mounting location. This winch actually runs off of DC power so you will not need an adapter, but it does not include a crank or an option to use a crank in the case of a power failure. For that situation you would want the Dutton-Lainson TW4000 StrongArm # DL25200. This has some mounting plates that...

Since you mentioned needing a longer strap you probably are between needing the 2 to 1 ratio or the 3 to 1 ratio. The Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed, 2-Speed...
