winch wire

Postby Jabba » Mon Jul 22, 2013 4:47 pm

I'm hoping to get my winch fitted in the next couple of days. It's 2nd hand with a wire rope and I'm wondering what the best way to wind it on/layer it is?
It's pretty tidy anyway but I'm sure I'll want to play :)

I have a brand new wire rope I can let you have for a number of beer tokens, would be safer :wink: (rope would be safer still!!!)

Don't do wire rope as both my and winch bitches body parts are more important than the money saved not using dyneema/plasma/h8/etc.

I'm keeping my eyes open for 2nd hand rope to replace the wire. It'll just have to do for now though aqs I can't quite stretch to the cost of a new one :shock:

So, if I'm looking for a synthetic rope for the winch, what should I look for? It's a TDS 9.5.

10mm, 11mm, 12mm??
Secondhand or new?
Is a 2nd hand bow rope better than a new tmax (or similar) rope?

In my view (which is of course very subjective!) - 11mm should be ample. If it's just for very occaisional use then as long as there's no obvious damage to the rope, a 2nd hand one should do fine if you can get one for the right money. Alternatively you could always wait for Santa to bring you a nice shiney new one :D

I would definately ditch the wire rope.

Cheers

Mark
