Are you looking for a Winch that will not worry you;
- About draining batteries.
- Variable speed.
- Plenty of power.
Then this is what you are looking for – Up for sale is a genuine Toyota FJ PTO Winch.
The Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 was offered with an available PTO (power take-off) winch. The PTO winch takes power off the engine through a PTO unit attached to the transmission. From the PTO unit power is transmitted forward with a drive shaft, through a pillow block and connects to the rear input of the winch. This connection is made with a shear pin, designed to fail when the system reaches a load beyond that which it was designed to handle in order to prevent damage to the drive line. Inside the winch case lies a worm gear, which further reduces the gearing and rotates the inner shaft of the spool. The drum freely spins on the inner shaft unless a notched clutch mechanism is engaged and the drum is locked into the drive train. Check out the images.
