Kubota Winch install

Recommended Posts

My Dad has a Kubota and recently bought a winch. We have the wiring figured out, but he wants to be able to use it at either end (winch is mounted to a hitch receiver). Is there any type of inline plug that we can use instead of having to basically rewire it any time he needs to use it? It would be a carry it to one end, plug it in and use it, unplug it and put back in the toolbox deal.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have seen quick connects for winches in automotive mail order catalogs, but since my memory is shot, I forget whether it was Summit Racing or JEGS, or....?  Another possibility might be 4x4 off-road catalogs.  The good news is that almost all of these catalogs are free if you ask in their web sites.  Good luck!

Look in the marine/boating section and look for an electric trolling motor plug. They are heavy duty and will carry a lot of amps, also moisture resistant. They do come in various load ratings but the heavier ones would easily handle the current from a winch. The one I have on my boat is rated for 40 amps, much more than any atv/utv battery can put out.
