Portable Winch 3/8" Double Braid Polyester Rope - 4850 lbs Breaking Strength - #PCA-1203M
Double braid polyester ("DBP") rope is a great choice for use with capstan winches. Its double braid construction essentially means it's two ropes in one, as the outer sheath works in tandem with the inner core. This type of "jacketed" rope is more tolerant to abrasion, and generally yields a longer lifespan. Additionally, it has relatively low stretch and handle friction heat well. To top it off, DBP is affordable and easily spliced by most rigging shops like ours.

Can this be used on chipper winches?
Likely, yes, we know many chipper winches use either 5/16" or 3/8" diameter rope. We would recommend checking with the winch manufacturer to be sure.
