Now, it need a fairlead, a PTO, a fairlead support. An hydraulic pump. New batteries.
Guys, an idiotic question, it's a doozer winch. Originally. How do i attach this to my machine. I can have pretty much all the steel i want. I beams, C beams. There is a plate at the back, with plenty of holes. But not much underneath. I know i need to make a fake chassis. Or do you call that sub frame? 
Thanks a lot guys.

Build a big "headache rack" and bolt it to chassis with stout triangulated bracing.  Put safety cage in between to catch broken cable.

Thanks a lot Mike, for all you do for me. 

That's pretty much what i was thinking. I would like the winch to sit as low as possible. But that's no prob. The only problem i see, is the gusset triangles, i think i need something beefier. I need to calculate. the loads and pulling stresses one the welds. I understand now what you said about a headache rack. I should double the winch support with a sort of roll cage. Actually, i didn't think of doing this, this way. But makes perfect sense. 

Thanks again.

They-ve been used as aircraft tugs, train pushers, snow blowers or clearer with a v blade. Forestry tractors, post setters etc. 

I've checked  MB-4 Coleman aircraft tug and true, there is some looking exactly like this.

Yeah you can make your brackets however you need to get the winch down low and reduce that pto shaft angle.  You may also want to set it more rearward in the cradle for better weight balance and a longer pto shaft.  

The big diagonal line from roller down toward frame corner is supposed to be a brace i just scribbled on.   Im sure youll come up with something good.  Make the headache rack bigger than the cab and it can be the base for a cage, and the primary spot to mount your toolbox, saws, lights, extinguisher/water can, chokers and chains etc etc.  This way when you do roll none of that stuff is in the cab smashing you to pieces.
