Default Re: trailer help?

I use one 12 volt battery and it has served me well. I wired in one toggle switch (3 position with center off) right to the battery box. The winch powers in and out plus has a free wheeling option. I have pulled several carts and mowers up on my trailer with this winch. It also serves to help hold down plywood sheets and lots of other stuff onto the bed of the trailer when not hauling the good stuff (CARTS).

The winch is bolted directly to the plate on the tounge of the trailer and the plate is welded in place. I think I got this winch from Harbor Freight for under $75. I have gotten so many in the last couple of years I tend to loose track sometimes.

Hope this helps you Scotty.

That looks great! How much can it be used before you have to charge it?

Kinda...Your low mount looks like it helps hold the cart down and forward while in tow. My buddy told me to mount it high so the cable will not drag too hard on the bed and ramp when pulling carts into the trailer. And it came with battery boxes already built low. So.... I'm gonna go look at it some more See if I can mount above the batts ?? I have a longer tongue to work with...

Mount a boat roller guide to keep the cable from dragging. Could even have it so can be removed after the cart is rolled up to it.

I put the winch and battery on and charged it up right away, that was over 6 months ago. I have charged it only once sence then and not because the battery was dead but just in case when I went ot use it it would have become dead, so more as a precaution.

I thought about putting some sort of pully on the trailer for the cable to run on then decided against it. I wanted to be able to control when the cable went back on the spool when cranking in. I even thought about putting a piece of pipe on a rod so the pipe will rotate as the cable was moving over it, BUT I got lazy and needed it right away so that never went on and probably won't. The rubbing on the plywood floor is minimule and it does pull the carts foward and down once up on the trailer.

My trailer was made from an old U-haul with the box removed. So I have a heavy duty Judy frame and axel. Weight is not a problem with it.

You guys are lucky for a while i had to push carts up the ramp, now today i just put on a 15$ hand crank winch on the front, its better than pushing i guess.

You guys are great. When I get done with this one I have a small 5x8 tilt trailer. The trailer needs a 'power tilt' to load & unload carts....next trailer project

Got to use the trailer today! Here is a pic of BHfear's Flag cart. It is a rare one with the 295 head on a 350 block and all the trick stuff. Must say it was all he do to catch the stock CC sparked up on 48v. LOL The CC actually had some better climbing abilities .... until the batteries finally started to weaken. Next time I'll bring 2. LOL
