Video Transcript for Pro Series Trailer Winch - Brake Hand Winch - PSKR15000301 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number PSKR15000301. This is the Pro Series standard brake winch, rated at 1,500 pounds. It is designed for use with a cable only. The brake winch is perfect for boat lifts, grain augers, manual fork lifts, hoists, and much more. The load worm is securely held in place whenever your handle is released. That's one of the great things about having a brake winch. The brake mechanism is inside this protective casing, so it's going to protect it from dirt, oil and grease and the elements, which is going to help extend the life of the brake mechanism. No free-wheeling option is available with this winch.

It does have the oversized drum to help maximize the life of your cable. That drum is going to give us a diameter of 1 3/4". There's a nice zinc-plated finish that surrounds the winch, which is really going to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion. In here, on our gears, we do have the lubricant on there, so everything is lubricated and ready to go. On this side, we do have the cable catch kit. You can thread your cable out through one of these holes, tighten it up around that catch system, and that's going to hold one end of your cable very securely as you're tightening the rest of your line. It also comes with the handle and Allen key, so you can tighten or loosen up the handle if you need to remove it.

That handle is going to give us an overall measurement of about 9" in length. Our drum hub can accommodate a cable up to 50' in length by 7/32" in thickness. The way this works is, as you tighten your handle, you're going to hear that clicking noise, which is going to let you know that everything is engaged as it should be. If you need to loosen up or bring out your line, you can simple just rotate the handle in the other direction. Here on the underside, we do have pre-drilled mount holes for an easy bolt-on installation. Our mounting plate is going to measure 5 1/2" by 4".

The elongated hole is going to measure 1 1/2" by 3/8". These two holes are identical and they are going to give us a diameter of 3/8", and then these two holes are the same, and they're going to measure 3/8" by 5/8". Couple of other measurements to go over real quick. The overall width, including the end of the handle, is going to measure right around 12". It's going to measure about 6" tall and about 7" deep. This does require a minimum load of 50 pounds for everything to work properly. That's going to complete today's review of part number PSKR15000301.

This is the Pro Series standard brake winch, rated at 1,500 pounds. .

This self-activating, automatic brake winch securely holds your load whenever the handle is released - a minimum load of 50 lbs required for activation. Great for boat lifts, manual forklifts, hoists, grain augers, trailers, and more.


The winch product is very good. The shipping packaging stinks. The outside shipping box was OK. But of the eight ordered only one was in a retail shelf suitable box. The seven winch boxes were demolished with loose parts scattered about the shipping box. The person who packaged the winches needs to go deliver pizzas instead.


Looks like it will be a perfect replacement for our jet ski lift


The brake winch is a more safe product in just about any use. We have used the brake style on wildlife feeders and lifts in the barn/shop area. It is well made and has a good stout removable handle. Recommended. Thanks.


Shipped promptly - with etrailer email notifications along the way

Product exactly as described - gear teeth lubed - good quality - used as upgrade from the old reversible latch style winch for a non-trailer related homemade winch and boom and used two of these units, one to raise the boom arm and one to lift the load


The product is as advertised. The real star is the customer service at etrailer. Within a few hours of placing my order, I was contacted by a representative who informed me that the product that I had ordered would not be available for shipping for a week. I was told that there was a substitute that could be shipped immediately. I chose to stay with my original order. 6 days later, I received a confirmation email notifying me that my shipment was on the way. I prefer to be told when there's a delay rather than being kept in the dark.


Excellent transaction, thank you


Great product, better service. Part was very easy to order. Part arrived ahead of schedule. Will definitely put this company in my favorites. Was a pleasure doing business with them.

William G - 10/10/2019


We use this winch on a few of our processes. It is an excel;lent product. I highly recommend it.
The ordering process was simple and straightforward. Well done. Don't change anything.


Winches work very well, fit perfectly, and shipping was quick. I ‘m using them to replace worn out ones of lower quality on two Westfield grain augers.


E-Trailer helped us with what we needed, got my parts fast, and economical too! Thanks!


Everything was as advertised. That alone is an accomplishment for mail order. The product will do exactly what I needed. I will place future orders. I liked the helpful product information.


Worth every penny. Very good winch.


So far so good! Easy to install and easy to use. Great customer service. Would purchase again.

  • Does Pro Series Winch # PSKR15000301 Pull Load in and Let it Out by Turning the Handle
    Yes, the Pro Series brake winch # PSKR15000301 is designed to be able to pull the line in or let it out depending on which way you are turning the handle. This winch does not have a freewheeling mode so you cannot pull the line out manually and the load, in this case a boat, would not just slide freely off of the trailer.

  • Cable Layers on Hand Winch and Effect on Capacity
    In a nutshell, the more layers of rope or cable wrapped around the drum, the lower the capacity goes. Each layer typically reduces the capacity from 13-25 percent. If your current winch with the 1500 lb capacity has been doing the job for you, a winch with the same or greater capacity should work fine for you. I will link you to our Winch FAQ page, you can find the link below. This page addresses electric winches, but the information regarding the drum capacities would apply to hand winches...

  • Recommended Winch for Lifting 350 lb Advertising Sign Into Trailer
    What you are needing is a brake winch that will not freewheel when the handle is released. Given the weight you describe, the Pro Series Standard Brake Winch # PSKR15000301 would be ideal for your application. The winch has a 1500 lb capacity at full cable length, and a 700 lb capacity once the cable is completely wrapped around the drum, which would be plenty of capacity for your needs.The winch does have a minimum line load of 50 pounds required for proper performance.

  • Will The Pro Series Standard Brake Winch, # PSKR15000301, Work To Pull A 12 Foot Boat Into A Garage
    On the Pro Series Standard Brake Winch, # PSKR15000301, it is an automatic brake winch, so it will engage the brake whenever the handle is released even in the wind up position. The boat size to winch capacity is generally 2 to 1. For example, a 2,000 lb. boat will require a 1,000 lbs. winch. This brake winch has a weight capacity of 1,500 lbs with the cable only wrapped on the drum in one layer. For every layer of cable that is wound onto the drum it will reduce the weight capacity...

  • Recommended Hand Winch With Brake for Pop-up Camper
    The Pro Series Standard Brake Winch - Cable Only - 1,500 lbs # PSKR15000301 is a great option for your pop up camper. It requires a minimum line pull of 50 lbs to operate, but has a first line layer capacity of 1500 lbs. For your application, you won't need a 50 foot line, so I recommend the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 7/32" Diameter x 25' Long # DL24047 to go with it. I also like the removable handle to give you other options like a drill attachment or socket wrench as well as...

  • 1500 Lb Left Hand Drive Winch
    Although the Pro Series # PSKR15000301 winch you specified isn't available in a left handed model, we do offer one of similar weight capacity that easily allows the handle to be swapped to the left side. Take a look at the Fulton # FW16000101. The winch has a 1600 lb capacity, and uses an enclosed design that helps protect the gears from the elements. The winch includes a 20 foot strap, so you won't need to worry about a cable that will rust over time. I've linked to some demonstration/product...

  • Availability of Ratcheting Brake Winch
    We have ratcheting brake winches like the Dutton Lainson part # DL14830 but there isn't a way to convert the Pro Series winch to be a ratcheting winch with a repair kit. This winch has a 2,500 lb weight capacity and also has 2 speeds and the ratchet is reversible.

  • Can the Pro Series PSKR15000301 Be Mounted for Left-Hand Cranking
    Though I do have a left-hand cranking winch available, I spoke with Pro Series and they said the Standard Brake Winch # PSKR15000301, having an automatic braking system, is not recommend to be wound in the opposite direction. With that said, the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Strap and Adjustable Handle # FW16000101 will actually be rated a little higher at 1,600 pounds, but the handle can be moved to the other side. This will be a much better option.

  • Weight of Tekonsha Breakaway Kit and Pro Series Brake Winch
    The Tekonsha Push-To-Test Trailer Breakaway Kit # 50-85-313 referenced in your question weighs just 5 pounds and the Pro Series Standard Brake Winch # PSKR15000301 you also mentioned weighs right around 8 pounds. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations on these products that you can also take a look at.

  • Winch to Lift Top of Pop-Up Camper Whose Cables Broke
    Brophy Cable Camper Jacks # CJ41 are designed for truck bed campers and for truck toppers and camper shells but for your pop-up camper whose cables have broken the safer way to raise it up is a lifting winch like the Pro Series Standard Brake Winch # PSKR15000301 which works with 25-foot cable # DL24047. This winch has an automatic brake that engages as soon as you let go of the cranking handle. It cannot free-wheel which means it will be very safe in your application.
