Expert Answers about Trailer Winch


  • Electric and Hand Winch Recommendation For 6,600 Lb Boat
  • I am happy to recommend a couple of winches for you. Since your boat on rollers is just over the 2:1 ratio you need a winch with a capacity of at least half the weight of your boat. For an electric winch, I recommend Bulldog Winch Trailer Winch # BDW15020 which has a 4,400 lb rating and will work really well for your application. It includes a 50' long x 1/4" (6 mm) diameter rope with a convenient hand held water proof remote. The only hand winch I recommend for the weight of your boat...

  • Does Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch Come with Mounting Bracket
  • The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 doesn't come with a mounting plate but you can use part # DL24055 or # DL24059 if your current mounting bracket doesn't match with the mounting hole pattern for this winch (see attached).

  • Base Dimensions of Jif Marine 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D
  • The base on 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W2500D measures 5-3/4 inches wide by 7-1/8 inches long. This is a very standard size and bolt pattern so it should fit on your trailer easily. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Will The Mounting base for Hand Winch Fit On Boat Winch Support?
  • I wouldn't hesitate to add the 2-Speed Boat Trailer Winch with 20' Strap - 2,500 lbs # 315-W2500D to your 3 inch wide trailer winch post. Many of the boat winch posts are not even that wide. For instance the CE Smith Winch Stand - Galvanized Steel - 30" Tall x 2" Wide # CE31013G. At minimum two bolts are needed to hold the base, but ideally 3 or 4 could be used on your support to give stability and support to your mount. It will not be an issue to have the base overhang the support.

  • 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...

  • Picking Out Hand Winch for Trailer with 19 Foot Larson Boat
  • I believe your boat is around 3,000 lbs from what I was able to find on it but I'd recommend confirming that if you aren't sure. So to pick out a winch you'd just need to go with one that has at least a 1,500 lb capacity since the ratio for picking out a winch based on a boat weight is 2 to 1. The Fulton you mentioned part # F142424 would be overkill as it has a 3,200 lb capacity but it would work really well and be easy to use. For a lighter duty winch that would still work great but...

  • Best Replacement for a Shelby Hand Winch 5405
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15303 is the replacement that I recommend for your Shelby Hand Winch 5405. These winches both have the same 1,400 lb capacity and overall size. In regards to mounting, most hand winches now use a standard pattern which I have attached a photo of for you. If your winch does not use this same mounting pattern you will need to modify yours to accept this. If you don't already have a strap/wire to use we have these available as part # DL24260 or part...

  • 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.

  • Fulton 1,500 lb Brake Winch is Slipping
  • If your Fulton K1550 winch - which is the 1,500 lb Fulton High-Performance Brake Winch # F143100 - brake is slipping, the most likely cause is indeed the friction pads are worn down, particularly if this is an older winch. You'll see signs of wear, most notably in the middle of the pad that are likely the issue. If so, there are replacement brake pads: - Replacement Friction Discs for Fulton Brake Winch # F501115 You may also want to take a look at the teeth on the ratchet wheel to...

  • Can Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch 11011 Use 1/4 Inch Cable
  • You are on the money with the cable that you need, which is 1/4 inch for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL11011. The correct cable for this winch is the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 1/4" Diameter x 25' Long # DL24100 or 50' Long # DL24104. This is a great winch for what you are looking to do compared to the other winch you mentioned, and I absolutely recommend it because it has an easy-to-use topwind handle which cranks in either direction for lowering and lifting and holds...

  • Recommended Electric Boat Winch For 4000lb Fiberglass Boat
  • The Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch - Marine - 9,000 lbs # DL25215 would be plenty strong to pull your 4000lb fiberglass boat on your bunk trailer, and already includes a 2" x 20' polyester strap so you will not need to purchase one separately. Since the wiring included with the # DL25215 has a quick connect already on it you can run that to the battery on your truck and mount the quick connector near your 7-way like you mentioned. You will then use the Dutton-Lainson Electrical...

  • Replacing Shelby 5403 Winch on Boat Trailer
  • For a winch with a similar capacity as the Shelby you have now that will work great I'd recommend the Fulton # F142102. This winch comes with a 20 inch strap, has a 1,100 lb capacity and has a solid drum-gear construction which means it will last a long time. Unlike other winches that have a drum and gear that are riveted together, which leaves space in between, this winch's solid construction ensures there are no spaces that water or debris can get into. Because water can't get in, there...

  • Is Line Payout Difficult with Fulton F2 2-Speed Trailer Winch # FW32000101
  • You are correct that the Fulton F2 2-Speed Trailer Winch # FW32000101 no longer has the neutral feature due to safety reasons. While you can certainly still pull the strap out when needed it does take quite a bit of effort (the handle will turn 16 times to 1 drum revolution when in low speed). Depending on how far away the boat is when this type of operation is needed you might find yourself wishing you had a winch with a neutral position. Because of this I do recommend going with the...

  • Winch Option that Can be Used with Power Drill

  • Trailer Winch Recommendation for 35 ft Fountain on Boat Trailer with Wooden Bunks
  • The best 2 speed hand winch we offer for a boat trailer setup like yours with wooden bunks pulling in a boat that weighs 8,500 lbs is the Fulton 2 Speed winch part # F142430 which also has a hand brake to help when letting the boat out when launching. This has a 3,700 lb capacity as well and for a cable the part # FWC7500100 would work great as well.

  • Trailer Winch for Personal Watercraft PWC Trailer
  • There are trailer winches for your PWC trailer, although no trailer arms, and there are not winches made specifically for a 1996 Leland PWC-900. Instead, I recommend checking out the Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch # F142007 or Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - Single Speed # DL17000. I have added links to video reviews of both parts for you to check out as well.

  • The Bulldog # BDW15019 winch has a maximum operating DC Amperage of 340 Amps. The Bulldog # BDW20026 Wiring Kit has 3 gauge wire. You will need a Bulldog # BDW203547 – 400 Amp inline fuse which is designed for 0 to 4 gauge wiring. This fuse will blow before your wiring is damaged. The battery cable is connected to the fuse holder with a M5 hex key. If you do not have one you can order the Thule # 853-0930 replacement hex key.

If this is the K1550 winch you have, the correct part is the Replacement Pinion Shaft for Fulton 1500 Series Winch # F501118. If you need other parts for this winch we also carry the Ratchet Repair Kit for Fulton 1,500-lb to 2,500-lb Winches # F501117 and Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24100.

If you have a chain or wanted to add a small portion or chain to your hook then you can use the Titan Chain Clevis Hook w/ Spring Loaded Latch for Chain w/ 5/16" Thick Links - 4,700 lbs # TCSLIP-G70-8-L.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for 2200 lb Boat
  • Although the # 348776 you'd looked at would do the job, going with a winch that has a higher capacity than what you actually need is a good idea. The winch won't need to work as hard. With this in mind, I'd recommend the # 315-W2000D from JIF Marine. The extra capacity will be helpful when you add the weight of the cargo like skis, fishing gear, coolers and gas. Normally, with a short winching distance, you could get by with a 1100-1500 lb capacity winch, but going with a winch with...

  • What is Small Plate in Photo of Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
  • The small plate you are referring to in the photo of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825 is the Cable Clamp for Pulling and Brake Winches by Dutton-Lainson # DL24350. The winch does come with this cable clamp, but it does not come with a cable or strap, so for that I recommend the Hand Winch Strap # DL24249 or Hand Winch Cable # DL24102. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14825.

  • Recommended Strap-Compatible 1000 lb Brake Winch
  • We've got just the winch you're looking for. I'd recommend the # DL14996 Dutton-Lainson 1500 lb hand winch. Dutton-Lainson winches are extremely durable, well designed, reasonably priced and manufactured in the USA. This 1500 lb capacity brake winch has a brake which will prevent the load from moving or the handle from freewheeling when you stop cranking, but also has a freewheel mode so you can play the line out manually. The winch can also be used with either a cable or a strap. The...

  • Troubleshooting Fulton T1801 Slipping
  • Your Fulton T1801 may be slipping for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common come from use over time. If the teeth on the planetary gear or ratchet pawl start to wear down, or if the handle is stripped at the attachment point, you may experience slipping. If it is only slightly worn that would explain why it works fine without any weight but not with the weight of the boat. The spring may also need to be replaced. If you can identify the handle as the problem, the #...

It also uses a polypropylene cover to protect the winch and strap from UV rays as well as keep debris out of the gears. This winch comes with a 20' strap already installed and has 2 speeds to make it easier as the boat needs to be cranked in. It also has a neutral position to allow you to pull out the...

  • Hitch Mounted Winch Mounting Plate For Bulldog BDW66FR Trailer Winch

If the mounting plate of the Bulldog # BDW66FR winch is removed, the 6-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern of the winch will perfectly match that of the # 6495 mount. The mount has holes that would be compatible with the 10 inch center to center bolt pattern for the winch fairlead. The mount has 10-1/2 inch center to center fairlead bolt hole spacing, but...

  • Shorter Handle for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL17042 will accept the Replacement Handle # DL5144639. This handle is 6" in length compared to the 9-1/2" of the handle that comes on your winch. A better option may be using the Ratcheting Handle # DL70371. This handle is 8-1/4" long so that you won't be giving up as much leverage. And with the ratcheting feature you will be able to use it in any range that you have available.

  • Difference Between the Fulton F142400 and F142401 Winches
  • Whereas the Fulton # F142400 will work with just wire rope, like the # FWC3250100, the Fulton # F142401 will work with wire rope and also a strap, like the # FWS20HD0200. With both of these having a capacity of 2,000 ponds and being high performance 2 speed models, this will be the only difference between them.

  • Recommended 2-Speed Hand Winch for 2900 lb Boat
  • Typically, if the trailer has bunk rollers, you can choose a winch with a capacity that's 1/3 the weight of the boat. However, if you go with a winch with a capacity that's half the weight of the boat the winch will be easier to operate and won't be subject to as much wear and tear as a lower-rated winch would be. I'd recommend the 1800 lb capacity US-manufactured Dutton-Lainson # DL15502 which will have plenty of capacity and then some to handle the weight your boat. The two speed winch...

  • Recommendation for Double Reel Winch to Lift Jeep Hard Top
  • A worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson # DL10952 winch you'd looked at would be ideal. The 1500 lb capacity is more that you'd ever need, but the great thing about a worm gear winch is that it will NOT freewheel if you stop cranking and let go of the handle so there's no worries about the Jeep Top crashing to the ground if your hand slips on the handle. Once you stop cranking, the load stays in place and will stay there until you resume cranking. You might also consider the # DL10965...

This is a cheap insurance policy for your winch wiring so it would be a really great addition. I attached a review video for it for more info as well.

You can add winch cable like the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 1/4" Diameter x 50' Long - 3,500 lbs # DL24104, which would be my recommendation for this winch and will give you just about the maximum length 1/4" cable that can be used (59 ft is the maximum for 1/4" diameter cables).

I recommend the The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14725 with a 2,000 lb capacity which would be a bit more than you need. The ZINC plating will resist rust and 2 speed operation.

  • The Fulton # F142424 3.2K Capacity Trailer Winch doesn't include mounting hardware. Fulton recommends using (3) 3/8 inch grade 5 bolts/nuts, the length of the hardware will depend on the thickness of the winch stand/mounting plate the winch is being attached to. The hardware should be torqued to 28-30 foot/lbs. I've linked to a product description video that you might find helpful.

  • Cable For Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch F142400
  • We have the correct cable, but it does come separately from the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch # F142400. The correct part you will need is the Fulton Galvanized Winch Cable with Hook # FWC3250100. Winches that use cables don't normally come with the cable attached, so if you wanted an option for a similar winch, but with a strap included, there is that option as well with the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch with 20' Strap # F142416.

  • Determining If Fulton 2-Speed Winch F142424 Is A Direct Replacement For Older Shelby 5476
  • It is possible that the Fulton 2-Speed Trailer Winch - 10" Long Handle - 20' Strap - Zinc - 3,200 lbs # F142424 you were looking at will be a direct replacement for your Shelby 5476 2800lb hand winch, but you will need to do a little comparing to the mount plate. I included a picture of the bottom of the # F142424 showing the mounting holes, and a few dimensions. If this matches your current Shelby winch this would be a great replacement option that has an extra 400lb weight capacity. If...

  • Can the Fulton 3205 Be Used with a Polyester Strap Instead of Wire Rope

  • Can I Switch a Cable for a Strap on the DL25001
  • We have a good solution for you but the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch w/ Remote - 3,000 lbs part # DL25001 does not have the accommodation for a strap. Instead I recommend using the Replacement Synthetic Rope for Bulldog Winch Trailer and ATV/UTV Winches - 1/4" x 50' part # BDW20095 . While this is a longer rope it allows you to cut it to the length you want so you will likely be able to extend its reach. When cutting it be sure to melt the cut end and wrap it back up to prevent...

  • Mounting Hardward Included With Fulton XLT Winch

  • Recommended Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch to Use with Ratcheting Handle
  • I reached out to my contact at Dutton-Lainson and she said that there is not a ratcheting handle available that's compatible with the DL1402A model Hand Winch # DL15303. For one that can be used with a ratcheting handle a higher-rated winch is needed such as the excellent Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14527 that features a 1,600 pound weight capacity. With this particular winch you can replace the handle with the Ratcheting Handle # DL70371.

  • Is There a Repair Kit Available for a Fulton Boat Trailer Winch T1801Z1650

In regards to mounting, not all winches use the same pattern so you'd need to compare the dimensions in the photo below to what you have now.

Dutton-Lainson offers a 2500 lb capacity winch as part # DL15761 which is closest in capacity to the 2K winch you were looking at, which is compatible with the socket adapter.

  • Will Bulldog Winch Have the Capacity and Capability to Load 4,000lbs Car into My 18 Foot Car Hauler
  • Good news! The Bulldog Winch # BDW15019 will work great for loading your 18 foot car hauler with a vehicle up to 4,000lbs. We recommend using a winch with a line pull capacity no less than equal to that of the load being moved. For example, if a car weighing 4,000 lbs is going to be pulled onto a trailer, an electric winch with a line pull capacity equal to 4,400 lbs. will work great. If the winch is going to be used to pull a load up a set of ramps and onto a trailer, the ramp incline,...
