Krpan 4.5 remote controlled winch
« on: October 28, 2018, 01:25:29 PM »
I recently purchased a new winch from our forum sponsor Farma who also sells Krpan forestry and ag related equipment.
The winch is the Krpan 4.5 eh model.10,000 pulling capacity with a tethered remote and optional radio remote.It is made in Slovenia and the quality is excellent.I haven't owned it long enough to be very proficient but it is going to save a lot of wear and tear on my 71 year old legs.I've been looking for a couple years and with the exchange rate I couldn't pass it up.The dealership is Pickens Equipment located in Waterloo,Qc.,and yes they ship.Brad and the staff at Picken's are great to deal with.

 

 
The wire on the far side of the top link goes to the receiver
mounted out of harms way in the cab,the near wire goes to a 12 volt outlet.


 <br

 <brTransmitter is attached to a belt(supplied)to wear around your waist.Red knob turns on the power,far left controls winch,far right toggle establishes connection between receiver and transmitter.Other toggles are for more modern tractors than mine.!985 Kubota.>
 Now I'm waiting for the ground to freeze and some snow to keep my logs clean and equipment out of the mud.

Congrats on the new winch. Looks very interesting. If I read the info on it correctly it is a hydraulic winch with it's own complete and separate hydraulic system. The tractor pto just drives the pump. I am guessing you will like the remote control. Make sure you let us know how much of an energy saver it really is over your Taifun (sp??) winch so we will be properly jealous.

Yes,self contained hydraulics.The tank is just the other side of the scabbard.
My tractor is starting to resemble a Mad Max clone,guess that might be Mad Mix.

What are you doing with your Tajfun winch now that you have a new one (No, I'm not in the market, but I know used logging winches in decent shape don't take long to sell.)
