Re: engine shuts off when winching
I agree, although the hand throttle is a good idea or the other thing. I do think there is another problem. I run my winch at idle (warn 8074, basicly an 8274 motorwise) and I have not had anything like you describe happen. I run one battery, not even a deep cycle and I have a 78 amp alternator or something like that. All that to say I have run mine at idle while winching out a buddies F-150 running on 38 stuck to the frame in mud, true I did stock some to let the winch cool and battery recharge a couple times but it never cut off.
