it was a lot more work, but some of the power lifts and other things they came up with were ingenious, the one problem was if one was not moving it would not lift, so if you got some thing stuck it was stuck, and usually one would have to dig the implement out by hand with a shovel, enough to move it so the power lift would work, (usually they worked off a drive wheel),

Many of the old crawlers had cable lift blades. I ran one in the early '60s. It ran off the pto on the back end.

I had to do two weeks with the National Guard in 1971 after active duty in the ARMY.
I ran a D-9 Dozer that was cable controled for two weeks! You really had to anticipate lifting or dropping. (the Dozer was AUWSOME! It started on gas and you pulled a knob and it switched over to diesel!)

If I remember right some of the old duce and a halfs were all fuel which meant they would run on anything combustible.

The name for them was "Multi-Fuel". I don't remember which fuels but I did drive a bunch of them!

Looks like it runs off the belt pulley ?

I think there two cables that wrap around spools attached to the big sprocket/gear.
