Bass Pro Shops® 2000 lb. Dual-Drive Trailer Winch
I purchased this winch to replace the one on my trailer. It is rated for 2000 lbs, which is more than my old one. I can not winch my boat on to the trailer like I should. The crank is too short and the drum is too small; thus, there is not enough leverage. Several times, after cranking as hard as I could, the ratchet mechanism slipped and let several inches of the strap back out.
This trailer winch is bad news. Sure wish I was not stuck with it.
I have an 18' fiberglass boat with a 140 hp motor

Good Quality Wrong Size
Unfortunately the hook did not fitness boat. I now have to drive to a BP shop to get a new one. Wish they had more details in the description page.

Great winch, long handle
Love this winch. I replaced a smaller winch and I enjoy the extra power but had one problem. The handle was too long and clipped the bow of the boat when cranking the last couple of inches. I was able to use the handle from my old winch with the grip from the new winch.

Dual gear winch
The winch works great for my sanger v215. The original winch bent and would twist from the weight of the boat, cutting into the strap. This new winch very easily pulls the boat up to seat against the rubber stop of the trailer. Only two negatives: 1) the crank/handle is longer than the original and comes close to hitting the trailer frame. 2) The strap hook clip doesn't close, it's too long and needs to be shortened.
