Well hopefully I'll be able to show you that soon on my soon to be built work/play-rig.
Of course when I say soon I mean sometime in the next 6 months lol.
Having a direct drive hydraulic pump is going to be awesome though. Here's a few things I'd like to be doing with it...
-Dump bed kit
-Hydraulic quick connects for whatever pto implements I might use (chipper, splitter, tiller, etc)
-Hydraulic air compressor
-Hydraulic motor with belt system to connect to salvaged inverter I have from a dead generator
...said motor could also be used to run a rope tow for my backcountry snowboarding addiction, or re-geared to do faster pulls for urban snowboarding/skating/wakeboarding
-Snow plow (if I end up moving to tahoe this winter)
I still need to do a lot of research on equipment and optimal setup. What I'm trying to figure out now is if the tranny has a way to clutch the pto's output so I can turn the pump on and off or if I need to go about some other means of disconnecting it so its not constantly dragging on the engine while driving.
