re: Winch cable Metal or synthetic?(Posted by NYCAuburn on 6/23/14 at 5:36 pm to eng08)
quote: I dunno if it's still up but it's freaking scary. The potential energy stored in some synthetic lines is crazy. The equivalent steel cables would just snap or would be so big they are immovable. Also corrosion is a huge problem.
If you dont already hsve a wench, go on ebay and buy a viper w syn cablecin the biggest size they have. I think the last one i got was a 5500lb for 269$ w mounting brackets. This is on a 900 Ranger Xp. We're pretty rough on a wench and have not had problems. Don't buy the gorilla brand theyre junk
