winch cable

I am not a winch expert. Take a look at the data sheet attached. Does this wire seem safe for use in winches? I have a bunch of this at work (with thimbles, eye's, crimping tools, etc...)


If it is good what is a ball park price if I wanted to make lenghts and sell a few????

If you're going to start selling homemade winch cables, I would take out product liability insurance.

My question is: Is this cable suitable for use?

Thats what I have found to be consistent for most 5/16 cables...

It would not be a "homemade" solution as the press for the crimps is a little too big to load up in the truck.... I have test certs on the crimps and thimbles also...

no.

It was one of the spools that where never used (still sitting on the pallet shrink wrapped). It just sits there collecting dust... Along with the hydrolic press for the crimps and thimbles.....

I sent 18 semi loads to BP in the gulf, that might be used at this point... The stuff we have is still on the wooden spools.

Who knows. I will make a few up and give them to the local guys. It's better than throwing it away. As long as people see the spec sheet and know what they are getting i am fine with it.

All of my research shows that 5/16 cables are right around that area. I bet most companies are using import cables unless they are selling to Uncle Sam....
