NEED HELP ON CAN CAR WINCH
Posted 14 January 2007 - 04:23 PM
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.

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

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.

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
