Took it out of the box, handle the handle position change and winch installed in less than ten minutes. First time I took the boat out, upon trailering, hooked up, winched right up, in fact, my wife, 5'3", 140 lbs winched it up because I was used to having to motor the boat up! Great product!!

I've owned a couple of these. The first one lasted well over 6 years with proper maintenance. This last one I haven't had for more than 2 years. I only have to winch the boat a couple of feet onto the trailer since I drive it on. As I was winching it, all of a sudden the side plate of the spool buckled and ripped like a tin can. I was not able to use the winch at all. Luckily for me I can drive my boat on but immagine the poor boater that has to winch a boat the whole way. He would have been stranded! I don't know who manufactures the Fultons now but they must be using cheap metal or less of it. I suppose for the price, getting 2 years out of it is OK?

Comments about Manual Trailer Winches:

I replaced a similar model winch and found that the old one was made in Milwaukee. Now, the new one is made in Mexico. Not saying that this is bad, but there are some small differences such as steel thickness, etc. Too bad we as a country feel we have to import everything now, and export nothing.

        Comments about Manual Trailer Winches:

        I have the 900 and the 1800 lb Fulton for two different sized boats. Never fails, never snaps back on your wrist, hasn't shown any signs of corrosion despite exclusively salt water use. Extremely easy to set up and install. My only warning (probably true for any winch) is that the strap hooks are all too big for the bow eyes of most small-medium sized trailerable boats. I connected a galvanized anchor shackle to by bow eye to solve that problem. Works perfectly.

              [$] not worth the money, handle stripped on two flat sided shaft. launched 10 times. cranked handle just 1 foot. boat is well under 1800 lb winch rating. Last winch I had forward reverse selector lever cracked frame bracket. Did not look ,but I sure its made in [*], Junk. Boats are a hole in the water. especially when these manufacturers sell you junk. Its worth paying a couple or several extra dollars for made in America. Employ U.S not Foreign workers.
