Hello, I’m John from Hud-Son Forest Equipment here at our local Kubota dealer up the road from us and we’re here to set up a Uniforest 45M forestry skidding winch on the back of a 50 horsepower tractor three-point hitch model.
We’re going to go over how to unload the winch from your truck to setting it up on the tractor cutting the PTO shaft off the proper length and training the cable on the winch.
So to get started for transport when you pick it up from your local dealer or pick it up from Hud-Son Forest Equipment.
This is how we set it in your truck we stand it up if you request it on a pallet. We would send it on a pallet but this is the easiest way to handle it. Stand it up in the back and anchor it four points. Keep the pressure pulling straight down on the winch and they travel for hundreds of miles staying stable like that.
Safest way to transport it if you need it to travel a long distance on a pallet is lay it down on it’s face. That’s the other way but you have to take the cage off so you don’t do any damage to the winch if you’re requesting that would just be one more step in the setup but we’re not going to cover that today.
So to start off we’ve got it anchored in the truck properly. Next we’re going to unload it so to unload it we will hook a chain and the center point on your three point hitch on the back of the winch right up here. We’ll get the tractor on the front end motor and we’ll just raise it straight up in the air
