You obviously weren't around tractors growing up

An electric winch takes a PTO if you're rolled or on your side, but I think for most everything we see a PTO is more of a workhorse unit, not to mention the fact that us Land Cruiser guys are generally obsessed with anything OEM - since the trucks were designed to be fitted with one if desired, it's automatically
