Hello #1Scout, welcome to the tractor forum.

Very nice. Obviously, you have a project that you plan to use it on.

Nice rig! Did you ever consider adapting say a garden tractor rim to that shaft? It should give you even more pulling power. How did the unit work?

Pretty ingenious! Please be careful with your fingers. You a kinda far from the controls while working back there and might have some difficulty shutting it off if you get caught up in it.
