I'm planning on dropping a NV4500 into my truck this summer. I've noticed that they all come with an outlet for a PTO winch. Has anybody installed a PTO winch before? How do you install them? I'm guessing that they are driveshaft operated since they are Power TakeOff operated. Does anybody make a bolt in PTO winch or what?

I install Munci PTO winches all the time at work. we do it on bob tails but it cant be that different. There is a cover plate on the tranny, prob 8 bolts. all you have to do is drain the tranny, take off the plate, and the pto should just bolt right on in. You can use air or a hand switch to engague the pto., Spicer makes the drive lines. If you can get ahold of one i have a lot off extras for them. The wirring hard ware, and the air through switch to start the pto. I prob could get you an old drive shaft for one. Hope that helps. ;D

Do you know anybody who makes PTO winches? I'm looking for something about 10,000 pounds or more.

Hey ram79. Does muncie make a gear that will mate with a np203 for a powerclutch pto? Last time I looked 4 or 5 years ago I was told it didnt exist.

Does the NV4500 have a PTO output on both sides or is it just on the passenger side?

Is that PTO winch in the front or the rear? Does the PTO output come out of the tranny or the transfer case? If it comes out of the tranny, how much clearance do you have between the transfercase/front driveshaft/frame? I want to put one in my truck and have some unanswered questions.

[email protected] but as stated the pricing can be painful.look around ebay for 1.I do have a 18t tulsa winch that has been overhauled and is ready to use but has no cable I am willing to sell for 750. Bolt it up add cable and a pto it is ready to work. Ebay most everything in this price is pull off junk that is ready to be rebuilt or scrapped.
I do have a Uncle that is wide known for rebuilding any winch that can be found,the problem with this is sometimes the parts can be expensive.
Most surplus guys have pull off winchesthat are useable but anything rebuilt will have a core charge and you are looking at 1600 plus to obtain. Most electric winches have a duty cycle and will work for a while on these limitations but when you fry the motor you are out several hundred to replace the motor and find a duty cycle to fit your needs. I have electric winches that have saved my ass but as with anything they failed when I needed it the most. with pto winches its mostly a blown hose simple repair thats why I am spending the extr money to add a 4T braden and a 18T tulsa to my rig along with the 12,000 lb,5500 and 3500 lb electric winches I already have to build my recovery rig and play toy. If I have to pull someone else out and I get stuck or bound up I need the ability to pull myself out and stay attached to him then once on solid ground pull him to me with out ever unhooking. [email protected] if interested on buying a 18T Tulsa winch for 750 plus shipping
