Pto winch needed for jd420c

Post by tree farmer » Tue Nov 01, 2016 7:14 pm

Looking for a pto winch for my 1958 jd420 crawler. If a 3pt. Hitch is necessary then I also need that. Thanks

Different ways to go about it. The aftermarket winched made for the 420 replaces the entire back cover of the transmission, so you will no longer have PTO, but you don't need a 3PT. There are modern 3PT mounted skidding winches I have heard about on here and elsewhere. You will need a 3PT hitch, but then you will still have PTO for other uses, and a 3PT if you want other attachments, or just want to skid with a bar on the 3PT to lift the end of the logs up while skidding.

Gearmatic winches are out there but they are hard to find and they will usually need gone thru prior to using it. You will need a model 8a gearmatic winch, controller and mounting plate. You can see some pictures of mine here to know what you are looking for, page 4.

I searched for many months to find mine!
