Rincon winch install
This is my first post so let me know (gently) if it's too wordy.
Traded in my 3 year old Rancher AT for a new Rincon. I used the Rancher to skid logs, plow snow, haul material and tools in a small trailer and some 4 wheeling on the trails. The independent suspension worked great over the roots and hummocks, didn't even bounce the chainsaw out of the front basket.
Just needed more OOMPH, then I could skid bigger logs to the wood pile and buck them there. The Rincon has more OOMPH, the shift lever makes it easy to get in reverse with one hand and the 4WD switch is more convinient than the lever on the Rancher. And the suspension is independent.
I don't know if it can haul larger logs until I get the winch wired. I don't see an ideal location for the contactor: away from exhaust heat, mud and water and not have to modify the battery leads supplied.
My question is: does anyone know where the Dealer installed contactor is located on the Rincon? I'm sure he doesn't want call backs.
