Building new winch frame
« on: April 05, 2011, 10:06:14 PM »
We started on a new winch frame for the tractor tonight.  How does it look so far?  It is built out of heavy wall 2.5" X 2.5" tube. 



I will have to sand blast and paint the forks and the winch frame at the same time.

Nice looking handywork.  It will be nice to see what it looks like when completed. Thanks for posting pics.

Hi All,

I didn't get to work on the winch any more tonight.  I was just laying out the plate for the back side of it and a lot clearing buddy of mine called me about a free load of pulp wood.  the only catch was I had to get it tonight.  so I dropped the plasma cutter and went to load the pulp wood.
