I do have a little one around so it sounds like the synthetic rope may be a good idea. Can I use it with a snow plow? Unfortunately the first cable lasted only one week of plowing. Am I missing something in the way I'm using it? I try not to over draw/tighten the winch line when plowing yet it only lasted one week. I also have a roller fairlead...???
I don't know about using it with a plow, they say something about it stretching too much.I'm sure somebody that used it for plow will answer that question. The only reason i got one is because my 2 boys come with me sometime. So safety first. (when there around) Is your wire rope rubbing some where off the rollers.
Hello Rooferdude 7
Go wi th rope it's No1 in my book!!!!
Wire cable pros & cons
Cons. cable is dangerous when it gets older. broken strands possibility of snap back! And sliceing your hand open!!!
pros & cons.
Pros. it floats! NO risk of snap back! can be wound onto winch any way no need to keep it in layers. If it snaps in two jus tie a reef knot in or splice it back together. when it's mucky put it in a old pillow case and chuck it in the washer!
cons. silght risk of friction burns if it pulls through your hand.
