What are some pros and cons of having either a hydraulic or electric winch? The price of the electrics seems to only be 50-60% of the hydraulic cost. Any help? I know this has been covered a million times, but I'm looking for some unique answers. Like if the hydraulic is better, get around the engine running problem by running an electric hydraulic pump? Or how about a PTO winch? I never hear anything about them? How much are they? I run a SM465/NP205 which both have PTO plates on them. No way to get around the engine not running though. I really like the simplicity of hydraulic. But I want to do it cleverly.
