The Dutton-Lainson Company's versatile StrongArm® electric winches provide load-moving muscle with just the push of a button or switch, saving manpower and making quick work of difficult loading and pulling jobs. Features include:

Gear-train uses heat-treated sintered-iron gears for smooth, quiet operation
Final drive gears are heat-treated high carbon steel for greater strength
Precision needle bearings are used in high-load areas for low friction and longer life
Die formed base is adapted for quick mounting applications
Hook safety snap keeps load securely attached
High impact weather resistant case provides excellent protection for cable and internal components
Attractive brushed stainless steel front plate for superior rust resistance
Electric switch automatically returns to the "OFF" position when released
Accessories allow for easy mounting on trailers, vehicle hitch balls, and other machinery and equipment
Also compatible with 2" wide strap
What makes StrongArm® electric winches different?

is more compact, allowing winch to fit into tight spaces better than long, open-reel winches.
is aesthetically attractive- black outer case and smooth lines vs. a long, open-reel look.
is safer, as cable and reel are enclosed inside the cover. On open-reel winches, fingers can get caught in the reel or cable as the winch is operated, and any frayed strands of cable can cause cuts.
protects cable, so it's not exposed to the elements, which accelerates wear and rusting.
Unique features:
Clutch release- user can pay out load in neutral and still control it with clutch mechanism. Other winches can only freewheel with no load on winch, so the only way to let load out is by using the motor, which is slower and results in extra wear and tear. Also, the clutch lever automatically returns to a locked position when released (except on the TW4000).
Spur gear system vs. planetary gears- a planetary gear system generates much more heat, and draws more amps from the power source. Because the motor and gears are attached directly to the spool, the heat build-up from running the winch transfers directly to the drum and cable. In contrast, the StrongArm® winch's spur gear system is much more efficient, it gives off less heat, and it draws fewer amps.
Rating system:
Capacity ratings are based on the third layer of cable, while other winches are rated based on the first layer of cable.
DC winches are great for mobile applications or around water (for vertical lifting applications, order a winch with no clutch lever installed). Easy to install and operate on:

Race car trailers (also for moving extra tires)
Antique car trailers
Boat trailers
Hay bale movers
Pickup cranes
