They was made in the 80ís mine is a 4410 Ford. I been wanting a winch for it. Itís a good little tractor I need to put it in the shop and put new bushing in the front end and there a few oil leaks fix. Could use some chains on the tires too!

Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

Matt if you have the means, a reciever mounted 8000 to 12000 pound chinese truck winch ontop that front blade will bring pine logs in to you sufficiently well and the blade will keep you parked.  



Pull one in, unhook at the blade and reel another.  Then spin around and grapple em.  I dont recommend a truck winch on back.  Youd find yourself skidding with the cable and they just arent meant to take that type of yanking.  There is no brake to hold the drum, so it would be shuddering against the planetary stack.

You could have that setup working for under $500.  I use old arc welding leads for power cable.

Mike I been looking for a hydraulic winch. Guy had a 21,000 lbs army winch that would fit between the tongs but sold it before I got home. Iím thinking about selling it anyway. Because I want a small skidder. I put a down payment on a 440 but the guy sold it and gave me my money back. I think Iím going to wait till winter and buy me one. Seem like there a lot more for sale then .

How big of a skidder is too large? Would grapple be the ok?

No way. My 440B was maybe 13,000# and right and fit on out 10 ton trailer without any overhang. It had 18.4-26 tires, and they were loaded, so that added some more weight.
