Anyone ever tried someone like Boston Gear (Speed Reducer, Gear Drive, Variable Speed Drives | Boston Gear)?  They have a huge selection & I wonder if the gears might be standard off the shelf items. 

If you can get the gears reasonable enough, relatively inexpensive bearings, seals & machine work will take care of the rest.

Never tried i seem to have no trouble finding parts for it. I do need to find a new output seal for the pto on the Braden winch.

My goodness you lost two planetaries already? Well now that certainly took the cream off that machine I bet! At least you now know what's going back into it.

I broke one planitary and one spindle, the other side was a wheel seal. But yes all new parts and alot of love. Still cheaper than a new machine payment and they dont make them this small anymore. Sooner or later everything will be new and have no issues and ill have a nice vintage skidder to log with.
