It's a 12v one, I got it at a clearing sale for $10. The clutch would not engage but when I cleaned up the mechanism it worked fine.Which type, electric (EW8000) or PTO (W8000)?
I have the electric one on my HJ47
Thanks mate, good info and photos. Will send some photos when set up.The clutch should have a grease nipple on the side, make sure that is still there as well as 2 for the lever.
There are 2 gearboxes in the electric version, each with its own oil. It would be a good idea to replace the oils. The box on the front takes gear oil and the worm box behind it takes a thick worm gear oil.
Thomas W8000 and EW8000 were fitted on 40 series from new at dealerships. They used a mounting bracket like this that bolted to the factory recovery points.
Also they had brackets to space the bumper further forward.
These winches use a good amount of power and can draw up to 250 amps. I used 00 B&S cable both positive and negative going to the battery, and have 2 batteries powering it.
I replaced the original solenoids with a Runva waterproof one because they would sometimes play up when water would get into them.
Thanks mate, thanks for photo, mine will be in the same position as yours. Only way I could fit it in and bolt frame to chassis.. I'm in the process of making some brackets similar to original ones to get the bumper out another 2 inches. I wanted standard bumper to stay.It doesn't really matter, mine is far from being in the centre.
All done.Thanks mate, thanks for photo, mine will be in the same position as yours. Only way I could fit it in and bolt frame to chassis.. I'm in the process of making some brackets similar to original ones to get the bumper out another 2 inches. I wanted standard bumper to stay.
Thanks for your help with this.....almost done
Thanks.Looks good, best choice of electric winch for a 40 IMO.
