Bit of shop work - Part II

Here's a place for the group to discuss their other brands of bikes, hobbies, and personal interests not related to Ural & Dnepr Sidecar rigs. But not politics...

Bit of shop work - Part II

Post by GHGoodwin » Sun Feb 09, 2020 12:04 pm

I was taking photos for another post in this thread and thought I'd put up my latest fab. I'm making a trailer hitch winch mount for my old Kubota (1994 era). A bit of angle iron and a short piece of receiver tube from U-Haul. Fit, weld, and paint. Angle was used to reinforce the upper lip between the pull loops, under the hitch tube, and in the rear for stability. Paint was the best match I could find.

Nice, very nice. My neighbor has a 4x4 Kabota with a front end loader which he lets me use whenever I need. Think I'm gonna steal that idea and do one up for my him. Thanks :cheers:

Finally got around to finishing the winch.

Haven't added the hook or hook-stop yet. Still have to power out and in to set cable.

Added a hook to the mount.

Here's where the most work was. I scrapped the OEM harness and rewired it for the remote only. The butterfly looking clamp is to stabilize the cables so they any pulls or tugs aren't acting on the motor lugs.

I benched a battery and it all works. Now all I need is for the cables and QD's to arrive. The winch, the tractor battery, and my truck battery will get short connector cables. I'm planning on two connector cables; one short enough to jump between the tractor battery and the bucket mount, and a second that will get from my truck battery to to rear receiver of my truck. The longer truck cable will also be used to jump to the rear draw hitch on my tractor.
