Homemade Hydraulic winch

A while back I saw a web site that had a writeup on a homemade hydraulic winch. It looked way cool, but I forgot to bookmark it. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img] Anyone have a good link?

Re: Homemade Hydraulic winch

oh yeah, try searching for a post I started a few months back. I think it was called electric vs hydraulic winches, or something like that. Some good info came up.

Re: Homemade Hydraulic winch

I picked up an 8274 with out the motor awhile back.
Everything is there except the electric motor which is rather expensive new.
Anyway, I've always wondered how hard it would be to put a hydraulic motor on it instead of the rather expensive electric motor.
Or, what about putting both on. Use the electric when the engine has stalled or use the hydraulic when the motor is running. The hydraulic would be a whole lot easier on the battery.

Re: Homemade Hydraulic winch

8274 motors are about $180 rebuilt, you'll spend that much on hyd hoses and valves
