Winch Recommendation for Pulling Heavy Equipment on a Trailer


I am having a trailer built with E Track and will be purchasing your straps. I need a winch to pull heavy equipment 500lbs up the trailer ramp. Is there a winch you recommend to be used with E Tracks or could you recommend a portable winch that would work?


Expert Reply:

We have plenty of winches that will pull a 500 lb load on your trailer, but we do not have any winches that were designed to mount on E-Track rails. A winch should be mounted directly to the trailers frame structure or to a structurally sound mounting bracket attached to the trailer frame.

The Master Lock Electric Trailer Winch, # 2953AT, is a good option. This winch has a 2,000 lb line pull capacity, but it has a 6,000 lb rolling load capacity and a line speed of 6 ft per minute. If the heavy equipment you will be loading on your trailer has wheels, then this winch will pull the equipment with ease. I have attached a link to this winch for you to check out.
