 Electric winch and light hookup

Well I've got 9 hours on my new Kubota 2910. I only got it stuck once, up to the frame in mud while crossing a brook. Using the FEL and a come-a-long got me out after quite awhile. Which brings me to my question. Could I have used on of those electric winches that attaches to a ball hitch? Would there be enough amps to run it? Where would I hitch up the wire? Along the same line, If I wanted to attach rear running lights to the ROPS, How would I hook up the electronics? Thanks,David

David, I don't know a lot about the electric winches, but from what I've read, you won't use it very much without running your battery down unless you get a higher capacity alternator. As for putting work lights on the ROPS, you'll find a connector for that purpose under the seat on the right side. It's fused with a 10 amp fuse and wired through the key switch - in other words, only hot when the key is on. I have a canopy on my tractor and put one 55 watt flood light to the rear and a 55 watt trapezoidal light to the front.

Bird,
So if the connector is hot when the key is on, How do you turn them off? Did you have to install a
switch somewhere on the tractor?
Thanks,
David

Yep, David, that's just what I did. I like having it wired through the key switch so they can't accidentally be left on, but that does mean you need a switch. Some people buy lights that have a switch built in. In my case, I bought the lights from Northern Tool, ran my wires to a 3-way toggle switch, and then to the lights. That way when the switch is centered, it's off. Forward turns on the front light and backwards the rear light. They cannot both be on at the same time and that suits me; I can't look forward and backward at the same time anyway and since only one can be on at a time there's never any possibility of overloading a fuse or wires.

 Electric winch and light hookup

No guarantees about running a winch, but here's how I think it would work. A typical tractor battery is 75 amp hours and around 800 cold cranking amps. I believe the amp hour rating means that the battery can deliver 75 amps for an hour when starting fully charged. Winches come in a range of amp ratings, but if one drew 300 amps under load, it would run a battery down in about 15 minutes. There are some variables here not considered such as the effect of heat generated and battery voltage drop as it discharges that also could have major effects. Anyway, I believe these winches can be run from stand-alone batteries, so running one from a typical tractor battery for short periods likely would work. I'd make sure the battery is adequate to support the load, and I probably wouldn't run the engine and winch at the same time. At some point in the discharge, the alternator would see the internal resistance of the winch as its load, rather than the resistance of the charging system. The winch load may be close enough to a short circuit to damage the alternator. I don't know for sure, but I'd play it safe.

There are, or course, different size alternators. Mine generates about 40A. I am quite sure if I threw a winch on it I would at the very least burn out the rectifying diodes. As previously suggested, I would use a separate battery, probably a deep cycle one, and put it on charge after use. My $.02

So if I were to get a stand alone battery, would a deep cycle batery be the type used for trolling moters on fishing boats?

Yep, David, deep cycle batteries are used for trolling motors, they're used in RVs, golf carts, and now I can't remember what all else.

Why not go with an hydraulic winch?

I have never heard of a hydraulic winch. But there is quite a of I haven't heard about when it comes to tractors. How would you hook it up to a B2910 and are they very expensive?
