Default Another project coutesy of my BIL

Well, he visited last year for Christmas and was taken with the tractor and the "toys" I had for it! So he decided I just didn't have enough so now look what I got! Now I have to figure out how to mount is so it can be used front and rear on my tractor, and on my trailer! Maybe my sister didn't do so bad after all!!!!

Nice! I just got one of those for my little trailer, seems to work really well just has a little delay after you release the button.
What did you have in mind for a mounting system?

I'm trying to figure out something I can drop into my front weight bracket, hook over my 3 pt hitch, and drop into the area behind the jack on my trailer! I'd like it to be simple with maybe a catch or pin arrangement on the bottom to keep it from "lifting". It should fit all three locations withoutany modification (interchangeable locations)!

I can see the front weight braket and trailer being easy because you can make a matching braket for the trailer based on the weight bracket. The 3pt might require making an adaptor the the winch can pin onto. Sounds like a fun project. Can you post up pictures of the weight braket? Sounds like thats what the mounts are going to be based on.

Here is the front weight bracket! It holds up to 8 suitcase weights so I figure it should do a good job of holding the winch in place. I'm thinking a plate with a couple of square posts in it that goes through this, then have adapters made for the 3 pt. and trailer to match. I'm also going to have to mount an electrical connection on the tractor and my truck that it can be plugged into (heavy duty exterior).

Hmmm, looks like if you can copy the "hook" section of the suitcase weight and find a way to pin it in so it can't come back out by accident.

Very nice gift, trade BIL's?
On your 3 pt hitch, did you make a 2" receiver attatchment? If so you could add a 2" OD square tube to the winch and plug it anywhere there is a 2" receiver. This has worked great here; it plugs into the tractor front and rear, the truck in the rear and the front of the flatbed (to pull objects on to the bed) also the front of the truck. Loan it to a buddy with a 2" receiver etc.

DMAC, good idea! I guess I could rig up an adapter for the front weight rack to hold a 2" receiver too! Good thing is that Walmart stocks them so I've got some close buy! Do you have any pics of your setup you could share?

Thanks!

Tim

PS For the time being I'm keeping my BIL!

The winch plugged into the tractor.

The winch welded on to the 2" square tube with a scrap plate that holds the controls and the electronics. Also the reveiver for the flatbed, it mounts 12" above the bed for a decent pulling angle.

DMAC, started working on one of my other projects for a while (they never stop), thanks for the pictures, looks like it works very well. This has a wireless controller so I'm going to have to see the range on that. Also, I'm going to have to check out an electrical store to see what kind of 2 wire heavy duty outside connectors they have. I want a simple quick connection!

Connectors used on jumper cables on tow trucks work great they plug right up and are made for a high amp pull and they are coated for protection.They look like the same thing they use on electric fork lifts to plug up the battery. Bought mine years ago from Snap on I will try to get you a pic

Grainger stock those in a couple different sizes as well. Used a pair to quick connect the Amplifier leads in my motorcyle saddle bag

Look up Anderson Connectors on feebay.... I bought a pack of 10 there, smaller 2 conductor sized for 8 AWG wire. I think they are rated 50A, but they work great for the RC winch!

Like DMAC, I also mounted my winch on a 2" square tube. I have receiver tubes on the front and rear of the tractor and the back of the truck. An Anderson connector is installed on the side frame of the tractor and in the bed of the truck for convenient power hook-up.
