Warn XD 9000i synthetic line capacity

Can anyone confirm the length of 3/8 line that this winch will take?
Amsteel website states only 75 feet. Would like a bit more if possible, although I will have an extension on hand.
Regards, Eric.

Hey Eric,

For 3/8" line, you would probably be best served using the winch line manufacturer's recommendation. The XD9000/XD9000i winches had a 2.5" drum diameter, and were not available with 3/8" wire rope from Warn (I believe a 3 or 3.5" drum is the minimum recommended for 3/8" wire rope, if memory serves), so Warn probably doesn't have a spec for 3/8 rope capacity on this winch.

Why not use 5/16", like the original wire rope?

Thanks Scott. Reason for thinking 3/8 is breaking strength of about 17000 v:s 12000 for 5/16.
Could be significant if dragging another vehicle out of somewhere, with the possibility of a double line pull. However, 5/16 would give me 100'. So anyone else using it?
Eric.

I think that masterpull has some 5/16 with a 3/8 spec breaking strength? Called masterpull pro or something similar

FYI, I've been running 5/16" on my Warn M12k for almost 15 years now. Its been strong enough.

Stick with 5/16" and get 100ft. Good to go.

Also, check out southeast overland for synthetic. Good guys and you can get extras if desired. Like heat guards and whatnot.

I'm pretty sure that significantly exceeds the rating for the original 5/16 wire rope. So I would suspect that if Warn's Engineers/Lawyers let the winch leave the factory with line with a lower breaking strength, you should be fine.

I'd have to do some research to find the supporting facts, but I'm almost certain that pulling through a snatch block (double lining) DOES NOT put twice the load on the cable, as logic would seem to dictate.

My understanding is that in the end, the winch can only generate 9000 lbs of tension, or pulling force, in the cable. The anchor point for the snatch block will see roughly twice the loading however, and your vehicle (if the line runs back to it) will see twice the pulling force..

Need to brush up on my physics I guess, amazing how much you forget over time..

I have an Xd900i with 150ft on it. I need to trim it down a lot as I have to pull like hell while powering out to get the first couple feet out.

I had 100' on my Husky 10. I cut it down to 60' and made a 40' extension.

It helped a lot.

Very spendy, but interesting.

Not going to be spending that kind of dosh (except in my dreams).


Thanks for all your opinions and assistance. Going to do a bit more research.


Eric.
