Has anyone changed an 12v electric Warn 9000 to a Hydraulic winch?
Just looking at mine while giving it the once over after the Simpson trip and was just thinking it cant be that hard.

cheers DD.

A second power steering pump and a hydraulic motor out of a log splitter or something could be the go, you may need a pressure relief so the motor doesnt break the winches gearbox, or not.

Getting a control block/manifold to do the changeover reliably without any slippage could be the expensive part. ?

when i worked on trawlers in the 90's we had rope hoists/winches that were hydro. they were 10000lb with what was called sharlin (sp) motors about the size of a 6hp 12v winch motor.when they were overloaded the internal bylass released the pressure but held the weight.often thought about this set up as i remember them having a keyed shaft like some winches
