a fellow needs help with this winch, any ideas???

I have a Tree Farmer C-5 with a Can-Car 20 winch, and the cable pulls out so hard that I have to hook it to a tree and pull away to get the cable off, and then when I have a hitch on it, the cable wants to pull out when I am skidding. I know there are bands in there, has anyone ever replaced them is it a big job, what kind of money am I looking at spending.
Thanks Guys

Not sure what a CanCar winch is, any more details? Haven't seen one, is it their own unit or made by Carco or Isaaccson or somone else? Regards, Russell
From the Okanagan valley in beautiful British Columbia, maybe THE place with the highest concentration of IH crawlers and according to IH, when they were going strong, some of the toughest conditions for logging equipment, they sent a lot of machines to southern BC to R&D!! IH/Dresser Mechanic since 1987, a few before that too, TD25's are great, TD20E's sound awesome!! Worked on TD5's to TD25G's. TD15C number 501, the very first one is still working near here. I have a Hough model 12 track loader S/N PL12-647 and a TD15-151, S/N 4864.

It should be a Braden,Gearmatic, or Franklin if it is on a C5.
If it is an early C5 it is a Braden.

Has the free spoll been correctly adjusted? He may also have the break draging.

Can-Car was Canadian Car and Foundry, they dabbled in sawmill equipment at Vancouver. Heavy into RR equipment manufacturing circa `70`s. Wouldn`t be surprised if they are in Paccar`s fold?.

Can Car only built the Treefarmer under license for a short
time. They were originaly Garret Treefarmer. Now they are
Franklin Treefarmer. I have never seen one with a Carco winch.

The winch would have " Can-Car " on it with possibly " Pacific" as well. Different outfit than Carco.

I have never seen a Can Car winch on a skidder.
I sold 3 C5's a few years ago,all had Braden Winches.
I have owned several Treefarmers and worked with dozens
of them. Once in a great while you will see a Lufkin or Hyster
hydraulic winch on special order machines,but the standard
was Braden, on the early C4 and C5's, Then they switched to
Gearmatic, The last several years most have Franklins.

After double checking that is a Gearmatic #20 winch.
I have the book and all the spec's. It has two bands and
a hydraulic master cylinder control. It is real simple to
adjust and work on. Let me know and I will post the pictures
and information.
