Can Master Lock 2k Electric Winch Pull a 1,000 Pound Fish House Onto a Snowmobile Trailer


hi i am looking at buying one of these masterlock winchs to load my skid fish houseonto a 8x10 snowmobile trailer house weighs about 1000 pounds just wondering if this electric winch will have enough power to tug it up onto the trailer. Also can u have your vehicle running while using the winch

The 2K capacity Mater Lock winch, # 2953AT, should be plenty strong enough for a small 1,000 pound fish house. If the winching distance is short or the house is on wheels or rollers are on the trailer it will not be an issue at all. If the winching distance is long, it is at a steep angle, or there is a lot of friction it will not be as easy for the winch but it can still handle it just fine.

The winch is going to pull 20 amps pulling its max so it would not be a bad idea to have the vehicle running while winching but it is not 100 percent necessary.
