I was thinking about getting a two speed winch on my trailer to replace my old one speed winch and to ease the pain in my old elbow. Just wondering if I could here some pros and cons about them.     Are they worth the money, do they last, or should I just buy an electric one?

I put the Fulton 3100# two speed winch on my bunk trailer. I think my grandson could winch my boat up to the stop now. I bought it on Amazon.com for around $100. Easy install too.

I had a 2 speed winch on an earlier boat.  I bought aftermarket and bolted it onto my trailer.  It was awesome for when the launches were shallow.  It would yank the boat up into the trailer with ease with little effort in low gear.  My only warning is make sure when you disconnect the handle to put it on the big pully, make sure it's locked in.  I took out a front tooth and had a broken nose and two shiners after mine came loose and kissed me in the mug.  Not one of my finer moments.
