Background on the Farmi JL 351 and JL 351 P Skidding Winches

The Farmi JL 351 and JL351 P skidding winches are loaded with features to ensure safe and productive operation on small tractors.

Both the clutch and the drum lock are rope controlled.  The operator can stand safely to the side, away from the cable and the logs.  Both models have identical winch mechanisms with the famous Farmi sensor, coiler and brake system.

The clutch control rope runs through a swivel on top of the winch.  The winch can, therefore, be operated from any direction.  This is an important feature for the operator, as he can control the winch from a place where he can see the load as he is pulling it in.  Good vision will enable the operator to prevent loads from hooking up behind stumps and roots and also to reduce damage on the remaining trees.

This feature also enhances operator safety and production.  Without leaving the tractor seat, one can release the load, drive out of adverse conditions and winch the load in again.  When winching from the tractor seat, one must have the optional protective screen installed between the winch and the operator.  The clutch enables the operator to select any pull from zero to maximum pull of winch.  The clutch will slip when the load is heavier than the selected pull.  This prevents damage to the cable or winch even if the load gets hooked behind a stump or root.

The clutch has a 5 year part warranty.

A new clutch can be riveted on the old sprocket so the clutch is easy and inexpensive to replace.  The sturdy upper sprocket acts as a heat sink and absorbs the heat generated in the clutch when winching, so the clutch will not burn out.

The winch frame is high.  The high point of pull is very beneficial as it creates down-pressure on the winch when winching.  The down-pressure pushes the blade or legs into the ground which anchors the winch and tractor in place.

After the logs are winches in, one slips the cable under the lower snatchblock for skidding the load out.  The lower snatchblock lowers the point of pull so one can pull out much larger loads.  The thin winch frame keeps the weight close to the tractor, large net loads can therefore be skidded out.  ROPS cab, and frontend weight or frontend load is a must.

Four logs can be winched in and skidded out hooked to the cable.  An additional six logs can be hooked up and skidded out from the notches on the winch frame.

The wire rope has a steel core and stays flexible even with use.  The wire rope is fastened to the winch drum on the outside so the fastening will not cause tangle inside the drum.

The upper pulley has a shield which prevents the cable sliders from jamming into the pulley.

Clutch adjustment, brake adjustment, replacing the cable and all other service can be done without any disassembly of the winch.  Repair of the winch is also very easy because the entire winch mechanism can be removed in one piece after removal of six (easy to get to) bolts.

JL 351 P model winch has a built-in-multi-purpose dozer blade.  You can stack logs on the landing, open ski trails, clear snow.  The dozer blade also functions as a butt plate.

JL 351 model winch has adjustable outrigger stabilizer legs.  The bottom of the legs has a "toe" which can be used to bunch trees at the landing.  The open design does not interfere with the drawbar on most tractors so a log trailer can be pulled without removing the winch
