Can I use Dutton Lainson Winch Outdoors and Light Duty Winch Recommendation For Outdoor Use


Is this winch designed for outdoor use?


Expert Reply:

I contacted Dutton-Lainson and the StrongArm electric winch part # DL24975 can be used outside. With that being said, it plugs into a standard AC wall plug and is not waterproof. You need an AC wall outlet to plug it into and it is not safe to use in marine environments or in the rain.

If you need a light duty 12V Utility Winch for outdoor use, I recommend Bulldog Winch part # BDW15008. It can pull up to 2,000 lbs and has 50 feet of wire rope. The Bulldog Winch has a sealed gearbox and motor unit to keep the elements out. It also comes with a handheld remote. The Bulldog Winch is powered by a 12v battery usually in a vehicle but you can connect it to a spare battery if you are not using it in a vehicle.
