Dutton-Lainson® pulling winches

The ideal winch for many agricultural and commercial applications such as moving heavy equipments and lowering boats.

Pulling winches

D-L pulling winches are best suited for boat trailer and other horizontal pulling applications which require the freewheeling feature of ratchet type winches. D-L pulling winches are available in models from 400 lb to 3,500 lb capacity. Models from DL1402A to DL3200A have a patented reversible ratchet to allow cranking cable or strap onto the drum in either direction. A hand brake to help control the Freewheel mode is optional on heavy duty models and standard equipment on the DL3500B.

for horizontal pulling applications.

  • Laminated, high carbon steel gears for longer life
  • All gears in models DLx1200 through DL3500B are heat treated for increased strength
  • Permanently lubricated bearings on drive shafts are maintenance-free
  • Heavy duty steel handles with ergonomic molded grips
  • Drive shaft gears are copper brazed for durability
  • Rigid, welded reel construction for added strength
  • Load matched gear ratios for easier cranking
  • All plated parts are zinc plated Tuffplate® finish
  • Slotted mounting holes for easy installation

Zinc plated TUFFPLATE® finish 
has 3 times the corrosion resistance of standard zinc plating

The TUFFPLATE finish starts with an extra thick layer of zinc. It then uses a trivalent chrome conversion layer for brightness and extra protection, and the last step is a high quality sealer to provide the final barrier to corrosion.

Results of laboratory tests using 5% neutral salt spray confirms our TUFFPLATE finish provides in excess of 500 hours against First Red Rust and in excess of 100 hours for First White Corrosion.

The TUFFPLATE finish process is standard on all D-L plated products and is RoHS compliant.

About Dutton-Lainson

Spanning over three centuries, the Dutton-Lainson Company has ensured that its key cornerstones set back then remain today. Professionalism, innovation and diversification have elevated the company into the forefront of wholesale and distribution across five different divisions. Look no further than during the 1940’s. Dutton-Lainson rose to the “call of duty” to meet the needs of the war effort, obtaining 3 Army-Navy E Pennants for their high level of quality and service to the corps (only 5% of U.S companies received this prestigious award at the time). But just who are the Dutton-Lainson Company and how did they start? Check out this interesting historical video to commemorate the 130th year anniversary.
