Got my new NT winch installed. It's rated for 12,000lbs and it pulled my 4020 with loader onto the trailer with no problems. It has also has the wireless remote so I can stay outa the way. Laughing

Now - That is the way to mount it.

Yep, I can take it off the trailer in seconds to keep out of the rain and sticky fingers is another reason we installed it that way. I also installed the 175 amp quick connects for electric.

I had a breakdown this summer on the 4020 in the middle of knowwhere and it sure would have been nice to load it up to work in the shop.

Thanks. Going to paint it all black soon, to match the rest of the trailer.

Do you happen to have a picture further out that shows where exactly you mounted it on the trailer?

Yours looks like it's mounted on the tongue, offset to the right.

I'm looking for ideas how to mount a winch on my trailer. Right smack in the middle would be great if not for the 12,000lb jack welded to the front of the trailer deck in the way.

That is a standard 2" receiver with a 5/8" cross pin, same as any trailer hitch on any truck.

That 5/8" pin is good for towing an 18,000lb trailer. If it can't hold up to the force from a 12,000lb winch, we should all just run and hide.

Sure do. It's not real clear but this is what I have.

Yeap, the welder said if I put a snatch block rated for 20k, I would need to drill holes for a extra pin about a foot back from the one that's in now..

The truck (Ford F-800) twin batterys already have a quick connect for the elec motor for the trailer ramps. I just unplug the trailer and plug in the winch. I leave the truck running when winching anything. I might try and get a better pic in a few days of the quick connects and the elec motor setup for the ramps.

That's why I got the wireless option for this winch, I can hide about 80+ft from the winch, like I did on this test run with the 4020/loader (roughly 12,000 lbs). Smile

2 gauge. I ran the winch a couple times and the cables stayed cool.
