How to choose the right winch for your needs

When shopping for manual winches, there are a few key features you should look out for. 

Firstly, be sure to check the winch's capacity, as this will determine how much weight it can lift. Secondly, make sure it is made from sturdy material and won't corrode or rust in saltwater environments. 

You should also ensure the winch has a good grip and is easy to handle, and look for boat trailer hand winches that come with an adjustable strap or cable so you can adjust the tension when needed. 

By considering these features, you'll be able to find a winch that meets your needs and provides better control over your vessel. 

Manual vs electric winches: what’s best for you?

If you're looking for winches, there are two main types to choose from: manual or electric.

Manual winches rely on physical effort to operate, while electric boat trailer winches use a motorised system. Both offer reliable performance in the right conditions and applications, so it's important to consider your own needs before deciding on one. 

Hand winches are cheaper and can be operated in areas with little to no electricity access, such as remote boat ramps or launches. Electric winches often offer more power to haul heavier boats out of the water and require more initial setup time than manual boat trailer winches. 

FAQs about manual trailer winches

  • Are winches necessary?

    Yes! Trailer winches are essential for safely and securely loading, unloading, and transporting your boat. A manual hand winch helps to secure the boat in place throughout the journey so that you can have better control over your vessel.
  • What size of boat trailer winch do I need?

The size you need depends on the boat and trailer weight. We recommend getting a boat trailer winch that is rated at least one-and-a-half times the weight of your boat and trailer. 

  • Do manual winches come with any safety features?

    Yes! Many hand winches feature safety systems such as auto-locking brakes and overload protection to help you avoid any potential accidents.
  • How do hand winches work? 

Hand winches work by winding the cable or rope around its spool, turning a handle or crank clockwise or counter-clockwise. This motion causes the boat trailer to move either forward or backward.

Hand winches are easy to use and can be operated by almost anyone. Just make sure to read the instructions before operating, as winch capacity varies depending on the model. 

  • What other equipment do I need with my winch?

    You may need a few other winch accessories to haul your boat successfully. Some items that would be helpful besides a winch include straps and tie-downs, winch post support brackets, a boat stop roller kit, keel rollers, bow stops, and cable or rope.

    Having the right boat trailer components can make all the difference in safely and securely hauling your boat with a hand winch.
