A ball valve (18) and hand pump (22) are included to allow manual rotation of the winch without power to the
system. The hydraulic line from the joystick is removed from the brake (23) and the line from the hand pump to the
brake is connected through the use of the quick-disconnect fittings. The pump can then be used to draw fluid from the
reservoir and apply pressure for manual release of the brake. The ball valve can be opened to bypass the piston pump
(4), and permit freewheeling of the hydraulic motor (20).
FOR NORMAL POWERED OPERATION OF THE WINCH THE BALL VALVE (18) MUST REMAIN
FULLY CLOSED, AND THE BRAKE LINE MUST REMAIN CONNECTED TO THE JOYSTICK (5).
Extreme caution must be taken to prevent a runaway condition.
