from Wausau, WI asked:
November 26, 2019

I need to replace 200' of cable on my log skidding winch. The unit currently has 3/8" 6x36 on it but I noticed in the description here that 6x36 is more susceptible to abrasion. This is actually what wore out the current cable. Do you have a suggestion on what if any other would be better for my application and would you suggest replacing with galvanized or stainless?

1 Answer
You're on the right track.  6x36 is not a great choice for log skidding; the same property that makes it more flexible (more fine wires) also makes it more susceptible to abrasion.  We recommend using "regular" 6x19 or 6x26 (used interchangeably) class wire rope, which can be found by clicking here.  There are fewer surface wires, which means they are larger, and hold up better against abrasion.
