great looking work. :thumbup1gif:
I made the rear receiver long enough to grab both 3/4" hitch holes in the very center running front to rear, drilled the tube to be aligned, dropped a couple bolts down thru from center of tube and then welded bolt heads in situ from inside. Having the head secured from the inside allows just a socket from below to install or remove.Great job!
How did you mount the rear receiver? Is it simply welded onto the JD draw bar?
I've been waiting until spring to finish my winch setup. Like you, i have the frt/rear receivers. Where is your solenoid/contactor mounted? In the remote? Where'd ya get that?Finally finished electrical and connections, storage box, etc and figured I'd update post in case anyone else contemplating similar project and in search of idea's........
Happy New Year to All!
Yep, that's what i'm using (same product but labeled superwinch)Are you running the power cables to the winch through the trailer plug as a quick connect?
You might consider using Anderson SB connectors. They're incredibly tough, and available in several sizes. I use an SB 350 on the front of my truck for a 12,000 lb winch. You can order them online, or buy them at any local forklift dealership. I'm not sure how much current those trailer plugs are designed to handle, but I know it's far less than a typical winch will draw. I worked on a trailer once where the owner had melted the electrical plug running a winch trough it.
