Looks really well built.

was hoping to get similar built for some river jobs where nothing else will fit.

does the fairlead allow you to pull at a high angle (30 degrees ish ) ?

for pulling over trees or pulling through pulley in tree.

would have serious pulling power when tied back. Handy in lots of situations.

Remember all these loaders are made to push and lift, when fitting a winch via the quick hitch you are pulling in the wrong direction they will power winches far larger than is safe, loler, puwer etc I’m not saying don’t do it but be careful take a look at an avant style head stock two bits of 5mm plate and 50 MM 10mm bar hardly a strong fixing

I agree.

You wouldn’t safety pull anything substantial without being tied back , 700kg machine is not much of an anchor anyway.

with winch/mounting plate tied back (properly for angles of pull) stresses should not be on hitch/machine.

 Also need good understanding of winching and limits of what can be safely attempted.

Yes, the customer understands this and hence why the tie backs have been fitted to allow it to be secured to something behind the machine. it's more for awkward sites skidding brash etc
