Gearmatic 19 on crawler
« on: June 07, 2018, 06:31:42 PM »
Ive got a Gearmatic 19 on a td7e crawler. Drum reels in when tractor is moving in forward and reverse. Handle is in hold position. Anybody in the Ct area familiar with these winches? Id pay someone to come out and fix it. If easier call me at 860-798-4039  Thanks

thats usually related to the clutch band settings. 

Its a gearmatic... bleed it welll, then bleed it again. they are difficult to bleed.

If was parked up a while go find something really big and burn any moisture out by trying to tow the untowable... put a line on a good solid tree, and go for a walk to the end of the cable, then winch her back in a few times with your blade dragging in the dirt. You should be able to free it up that wy

If not you might have to open the cover and reset the bands, or they could be full of brake fluid from a leak. The manual for the winch is available online as a pdf from allied systems.
The quickest way to make a million dollars with a sawmill is to start with two million.
