I am going to install the Mile Marker Hydraulic winch on the 7040. It will come with a spool valve that will protect for full pressure from the pump as recommended by Winchplus. Will install it on the front instead of the brush guard and high enough to be able to use the FEL bucket as a wedge to prevent sliding. I know Madreferee has a ton of postings on hooking up aux hydraulics but still wondering how to hook this up? Like to tie into the hydraulics at the pump and then route lines along the frame rail up to where the valve is mounted on the front. So was wondering if solenoid valves to divert the flow to the winch would be the right way to go or is there a better way to tie in more directly? Have three aux hydraulic valves in the rear and I want to retain them for other uses. The aux hydraulic outlets in the front are mounted on the FEL and the winch will be mounted on the front frame of the tractor so that does not work too well.
