There are practical benefits to be gained from both rope and wire winch lines for the Polaris Ranger Full-Size. But while neither style of winch line is superior, there are situations where one material is better than the other. Some riders have bad experiences with specific types of winch lines, and others simply have an unsubstantiated preference for one over the other. A number of Polaris Ranger Full-Size owners prefer rope winch lines, knowing full well that heat, moisture, and abrasion will end up killing it. Things like Masterpull winch ropes have proven to be quite good, and accessories like winch covers can be used to protect the winch rope when not in use. If you use your rope winch line in mud, you're going to want to unroll it at home, wash it off, and let it dry before rolling it back up. But because synthetic rope has no stored memory, if it breaks during operation, it will not spring back at you. Sure you can't tie it around a tree or rock, but that is why you have a winch accessory kit!
If you use your Polaris Ranger Full-Size winch for plowing, use a section of tow strap instead of using the winch cable. And if you aren't the kind of person who's going to baby their winch line, a cable wire is the way to go. Sure they're heavier than synthetic rope winch lines, but wire winch lines are less affected by abrasion, they are generally cheaper, and they won't begin to break down in extremely hot conditions like a synthetic rope will. But no matter if you're after a steel cable winch line, a synthetic rope winch line, or anything in between, Everything Polaris Ranger has a variety of winch line sizes to choose from. We have thick winch lines and thin winch lines, long winch lines and short winch lines. We even have winch line extensions for when the longest Polaris Ranger Full-Size winch line isn't long enough. Don't wait until you're stuck and grab one for your side-by-side today!
