Hydraulic pto's

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if many folk have much exp of converting hydraulic flow into a pro drive??

 

 

Say like from a tracked dumper to power either a normal pro driven winch, which I guess is fairly low pressure, to a flail mower or even a mulcher which could be up to 1000rpm.

 

I realise it will depend on up and flow rates etc, but is there a min?

And wot sort of price do they cost?

Also have folk found them to be successful or not? Or a bit off a waste off time.

 

Cheers

Cheers Chris, was more wondering wot I'll personal experiences are?

Do they work ok or bad for over heating depending wot ur using it for.

 

Was speaking to a salesman the other day and he reckoned the folk that had added them to his machines didn't rate them.

Was just wondering if anyone else had any 1st hand experience off them.

Chers

LGP Eddie converted a forestry winch to run off a hydraulic PTO, and I think Gray Git also did possibly? Not sure how good/bad the conversions were, but they may be worth touching base with.

Aye I've used hydraulic winches on factors etc and they generally are slow.

But they are generally rescue winches and slow and steady is the way to go when debugging urself.

 

 

Althou u must get faster winch motors if u have the flow/pressure as I'm sure ur 360 skyline conversions the drums work off additional hydraulics.

The winch!
 
 
Yeah I knew that really, was just about to set off to work in my landrover so made me chuckle.

I was mostly interested in the winch comment though, I don't have one at the moment and I've seen some sets of parts for pro winch on eBay end they look like a fair bit of work to fit. Electric hung off the towbar is probably favourite at the moment.

Scottish power or SSE? used to sell there old 110  landy's which had pto winch fitted directly onto engine or gearbox

 

 

Good bit off kit as a rescue winch and won't drain the battery the way an electric 1 would, more so for long pulls where it could over load the battery
