Lightbulb Jeep PTO units (Winches, generators etc)

Dear BHPians,

How many of you have installed or experienced one or other PTO units in your Jeeps ? I'm trying to collect information about PTO accessories that were/are used in Indian Civilian/Military Jeeps.

Example:

1. PTO winch
2. PTO overdrive
3. PTO generator
4. PTO rotators

and so on... Here is the game starts... post pictures, availability of units, whereabouts, usage guide, feedback etc here. I really wanted to know how many of us are having those fitted in our Jeeps.

Fantastic Topic trammway. There is an existing thread on winches, but let this one be specifically about what modifications are required to add a PTO winch to a Jeep. What are the ill-effects(if any)?

Waiting for UBS sir's detailed post on this subject

Yeah, Santhosh I did see the other Winch topic but PTO doesn't meant only for Winch. Infact pre-tractor era was filled with Jeeps doing Farm work and lots of PTO stuffs were used.

I'm curious about the awareness and availability of such devises in India.

Guys above and (to-be) below - I had no clue what a PTO is... so here goes for 'what is this' kind of people.

@spitfire

You are a PTO man.. however, I have seen these pictures somewhere in the internet. My question is how many of us (Indians) aware and utilize the PTOs in Jeeps.

Hence types of PTOs including farm, recovery and speed purposes and availability where to search for one.

It would be the greatest favor I can ever think of asking some one, can you get some pictures of the water pump setup from the gearbox to the actual place where the water flows.

trammway,
I am sure you are aware that the first civilian jeep, the CJ2A, was advertised as a replacement to the tractor. The PTO was the star here, running everything from farm implements to an arc welder to a water pump. However, the use of PTO's as a tool in a jeep in a commercial way is not a popular one, at least up here in the northern part of our country. However, PTO units for use in tractors are available easily. There is almost next to no awareness about PTO units and their uses in jeeps. Only a handful people I know are utilising the PTO for running winches on their jeeps.

Would love to have rear PTO assembly on my jeep though
Cheers

Default M&M PTOs

I have 4 Rear PTOs (including a Dana-Spicer) but no implements. :(

The PTO for the front winch uses the same mechanism but, the construction and output is different.

Regards,

Arka

PS - BTW Tractors appeared atleast 40 years before the first JEEPs.

Arka, Would it be possible for you to post some pics of the equipments even if it is not installed in the jeep?

Also, can you share some information how and where to get such equipments in India?

I appreciate your contributions on this regard.

How - Knowing exactly what to buy and what price to pay.

Where - Mayapuri - W-Block (New Delhi)

In 2006, I bought the PTOs for Rs 1900/- Now they should be around Rs 2500/-.

Is this a PTO thread or a winch thread? As far as winches go, the Warn 8000 lbs winch is a good piece of equipment. I have used it umpteen number of times but the best use I made of it was during the most difficult of all Great Escapes where we had to winch out around 30 vehicles stuck in different positions over a distance of only 400 metres in blinding rain. This was in Silvassa on the 12th of July 1998. My yellow CJ340 MH01P2540 was with me on that day and my god that vehicle went through some of the most demanding terrain and did not get stuck. The winch was mounted on a white Commander Hard Top 4WD MH15K2572 which was also used for the hands across the borders expedition. Between 2540 and 2572, we achieved an unforgettable experience and reached the hotel at 9PM (we were supposed to reach at 1.30PM). This is something I will never forget in my whole life. Winch and limited slip differential are an integral part of any real 4WD vehicle.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

For sure, as the the subject says it is a PTO thread. We can discuss anything that could be used from the PTO port of a JEEP.

I hope we have another thread which is exclusive for winches of any type.
