Product Description

  • Logging winch line cut, coiled and fitted with a tapered ferrule on one end
  • Made with 6x26 WS high-performance swaged wire rope, which is compacted after being closed…this means a greater linear density and higher strength rating
  • This is the best wire rope you can use for general logging operations as it combines high-strength with the best abrasion resistance on the market
  • Use with standard Choker Hooks, including sliders
  • Custom lengths and configurations available, call to order

* It is important to understand that the ferrule (aka nub) that is swaged onto the drumline does not produce 100% of the wire rope's published Breaking Strength. The strength ratings shown on this page are for the wire rope only. It is recommended to always leave at least three wraps of cable on the drum at all times. DO NOT PULL DIRECTLY ON THE FERRULE!

from Michigan asked:
January 30, 2021
I need a drag cable for my dragline, the old manual calls for 5/8 right hand lay tool steel cable.  Would this work well for that?
1 Answer
It should work fine, but just be advised that swaged cable is stiffer and heavier (it weighs more per foot, which is where it gets its strength), so there can be a learning curve the first time you use it.  But here in the Pacific Northwest many of our logging customers swear by it.
