Winch Cables= Good -Better-Best?


Recommended Posts

I'm on my way to get new cables for my house winches today. I change them every 2 years just to be safe. This should be regular maintenance for anyone in a state that uses salt on the roads I think. What are some of you talking about when you mention higher quality cables? Why don't people use straps like a boat trailer. Anyone ever use Dyneema rope/cable? They claim it's stronger than steel.

I thought about using amsteel synthetic but I think that the memory steel cables get may be an advantage here. .. With a synthetic line I think it would want to jump out of the pulleys and would be a pain when trying to Jack the house back up. ... Just my thoughts
