Make sure personnel are clear of wire rope cable
when there is a load on it. The cable can break and
cause personal injury or death.
Thick gloves should be worn when working with cable.
Failure to do so may cause severe injury to hands and
Keep away from the winch fairlead when the cable is
retracting. Personal injury due to pinching at the
fairlead is possible when the winch cable is retracting.
Always operate the winch with the cable in as straight
a line as possible. For winching operation other than
tractor in a stationary position. Moving the tractor while

The winch can be operated with the machine in either
EARTHMOVING or SELF-DEPLOY modes. Use the
engine accelerator pedal to control the winch speed.
The rear window screen must be down when the
winch is operated.
The last five wraps of cable must be left on the drum
to assist the cable clamp in holding the load.
The winch has a maximum pulling capacity of
97 856 N (22,000 Ib). For loads greater than 97 856 N
(22,000 Ib), use the doubling block which is stored in
the BII compartment (left compartment at the rear of
the machine). When the doubling block is used, the
maximum pulling force from the doubling block hook
is 195 712 N (44,000 Ib).
The doubling block must be used when performing self-
rescue of the machine. The winch should not be used to tow
