It'll take a lot more than that from you to piss me off.
I was actually saying that somewhat tongue in cheek, but then actually remembered that there is a similar application.
I read somwhere (probably here) about an air compressor that runs off of a winch motor. I was thinking that it might work out for a hydraulic pump, but then there's the whole loss of efficiency thing and he might as well have been using an electric winch from the start.
Personally I like the idea of the no electrics. Look at the gyrations I'm going through just to find the correct cut-off switch for the winch.
Now, where's my F-n seat!
This thread is actually educational for me. I know nothing about hydraulics, so keep up the good tech, and I'll shuddup for now.
