Product Description

In logging, strawline (aka haywire) is a small diameter cable fitted with special hooks, typically sold in common pre-cut lengths of 250 - 300 ft. It is carried and pulled by hand across the canyon or up the opposite side of the mountain, and then connected to a heavier cable (for example, a skyline). It is then used in a system of blocks and pulleys, and pulled by the machine (yarder) to get the skyline out into the brush, ultimately reaching the anchor point. The size of the cable you intend to move / pull determines the diameter of the strawline you use--the bigger, the stronger.

  • Made from 6x19 class wire rope, IWRC EIPS specification
  • End fittings are professionally swaged (aka pressed) according to industry standards
  • Eyes are knotted according to industry standard
  • Each section is banded for easy handling
  • Custom sizes and lengths available upon request
