Hi my name is ***** ***** is your machine serial number? Winch model and serial number?
Thanks for the update. Check the transmission filter and oil for fine metal/debris indicating an internal problem or failure in the transmission. Check the winch oil for the same. Let me know. I was looking for the service book in my files for your model and serial number but not seeing it. I worked for a dealer many years ago before Timberjack switched hands so trying to go by memory the beast I can to help. Is this winch hydraulic motor driven or PTO shaft driven?
That is possible. the winch disengages but then engages again once you start moving? If not a valve the PTO might be sticking mechanically inside the transmission. Id have to see a breakdown of the transmission for the PTO shaft and clutch. Its either engaging hydraulically as you suggested or it is mechanically sticking engaged. Do you know what transmission make and model is in the skidder? I might have the transmission manual or some information on the transmission
Let me know
I have family visiting so it does not have to be right away. I have to get back to them. We can post back and forth as needed. I check in periodically for follow ups as time allows throughout the day and evenings
