Selecting Electric Boat Trailer Winch with Manual Operation Capability


I am looking for an electic winch for my 22 century walk around. 3800 pounds plus engine. Wondering what model i should purchase and im concerned if these models have a manual backup incase the electric fails. Thanks

Our range of boat trailer electric winches is shown on the linked page. Many electric winches have a manual cranking option, such as the Dutton-Lainson TW4000 StrongArm Electric Marine Winch # DL25200, which is operated using a 5/8-inch deep socket and ratchet.

For a boat/motor weighing in excess of 4000-lbs I suggest the heavy-duty Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25215 which includes a manual crank handle. Winches will last longer when they are used below their maximum capacity. Since this winch can be used with heavier boats it will tend to last longer and provide better service in your application. Please refer to the linked article for more information on selecting an electric winch.
