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!

Questions & Answers

1 Question & 1 Answer
from ONTARIO asked:
March 11, 2018
Is this 5/8" cable actually 9/16" after it is swaged or is it swaged to 5/8" already?
1 Answer
This cable is swaged down to 5/8" diameter (it may be slightly larger than 0.625"). Swaged cable starts as a larger size, then is swaged--or pressed--down to a smaller size. This results in a smoother cable that weighs more per foot, and is therefore stronger and more durable than regular cable. The trade-off is that swaged cable is stiffer.
