If you're looking to keep the bottom roller of your winch from locking up and eating your steel winch cable when plowing, if you're wanting a wire winch line that is able to withstand abrasive winching situations, or if you need a winch rope extension to reach natural anchor points when riding sparsely treed areas, Everything Polaris Ranger has the winch rope and wire for you and your Polaris Ranger Crew. Many riders take out the wire winch lines on their Polaris Ranger Crew winches and replace them with synthetic rope winch lines. Unlike wire cables, rope winch lines don't store kinetic energy. So if a synthetic line were to snap under load, it would simply fall to the ground instead of whipping back at you, your vehicle, or other bystanders in the area. Although synthetic winch lines might fray and unravel if not cared for properly, they won't develop sharp splinters like wire cables can. Plus, on a pound for pound basis, synthetic rope winch lines are much stronger than their steel counterparts. Dyneema-style fiber winch lines, for example, are about as strong as they come. A 3/8" line with a braided-in hook is all you would need to completely dangle your crew-cab Ranger from a tree.
For many situations, a Polaris Ranger Crew synthetic winch line is the superior choice. But this isn't to say, however, that there is no place for wire winch lines. In terms of wear properties, synthetic rope winch lines can't compare to wire cable lines. Take plowing as an example. If the angle of your winch is such that the line rubs during operation, a synthetic line wouldn't last more than a season or two at most. In any abrasive situation, a wire winch line will outperform a synthetic rope. So if you're wrapping your winch line around trees or logs, or if the line is likely to rub against dirt or rocks on the ground during a recovery mission, a steel cable line is the better choice. But whatever kind of winching tasks you conduct in your Polaris Ranger Crew, we've got the winch ropes and winch wires for any application.
