Re: PTO winches
I don't know about the parts, but if you want duty cycle, you could also run a hydraulic winch. PTO does have that coolness factor, though. I certainly like mine. Make sure you put a weak link in the shaft somewhere so when you overload your winch it breaks the driveshaft and not the pto or winch. Pto winches usually don't stall. I watched a guy's 12,000 lb Braden pto winch explode after watching him replace his broken shear pin with a grade 8 bolt. Loud noise and oil and aluminum everywhere. His housing shattered. He was pulling a stump while anchored to a tree.
My pto winch runs off my Spicer/Dana 18 transfer case and I have all the gears of the tranny available to run it.
