I have always wanted a PTO winch but the opportunity and parts just never came my way. I bought a Koenig Model 74 Dana 20 PTO adapter 20 years ago, but that was as far as it went. I've had a Desert Dynamics 9000 lb electric winch, I used it many years and burned up several batteries,as it got tired it was put on the car hauler. during my 95 to 99 frame off rebuild, I replaced the winch with an 8000lb Mile Marker hydraulic winch. The first time I used it, I got my M416 trailer stuck on the dunes in Glamis. It required 4 full pulls to get it out. The winch worked perfectly, but again several years later it started having issues with the pay in solenoid. I talked to Mile Marker tech support, they said replace the solenoid block,($175) I did and when I went to use the winch the next year same problem. Since it would pay out, I reverse wrapped the drum to get a guy out, but the power steering pump got so hot it boiled the fluid out and destroyed the pump. (which is worse, a fried battery or power steering pump) So I finally started looking for the rest of the parts for a PTO Winch I found a winch on ebay and when I opened it up the gears inside looked like new, almost no scoring.
