Having a wireless winch that work with a remote control is nice thing to have when loading and unloading.
Using the hard wired switch on the winch works but can be a pain to make sure everything is loading correctly.
For example loading a car on a trailer with no remote requires stopping periodically and making sure it is roiling up on the trailer properly.
Using a wireless remote allows you to watch as the it is rolling up stopping and making corrections as needed in real-time.
There are many wireless winches available that come with a remote control.
Below is some of our favorite picks for best units.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.

Winches are indispensable units in many scenarios from loading a vehicle onto a trailer to loading and unloading a boat.
While a unit with a wireless remote control is not necessary it can make a job much easier.
This is especially true if you are loading by yourself and able to walk around making sure things are going smoothly.
When buying a winch keep in mind what it will be bolted onto, and the bracket the unit comes with.
Also the wiring will need to go to a battery which will need to be thought out.
For example if mounted on a trailer most owners will have a deep cell battery located on the trailer.
With the may winches there is no-doubt one to fit most any scenario.
