from Baltimore, MD asked:
March 2, 2020
Can soft rope be used with this winch?  If so, is the maximum soft rope size 3/16" as well?
1 Answer
You can use soft rope, however, the capacity will be much less since (most) rope is not as strong as steel cable size-for-size.  Generally speaking, we do not recommend using rope.
