Playing silly buggers testing out the winch and recovery points, and learning how to do it safely. And pulling a pet landie around.

Re: Winch Rope Advice

from what I can see yo are talking about a steel rope, so putting it in a washing machine would be not a grand idea if you want to stay onside with the missus.. :lol: If it is a steel wire rope then clean it off and then re oil it.. it will be ok..

Re: Winch Rope Advice

Its synthetic rope. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will get new rope in a few months, in the meantime I will use the current rope and learn how to use my winch at every opportunity, I don't put myself in situations where I am the only truck, so a winch isn't essential. My main concern is ...

Ill get a new grub on monday, I guess the rope will be fine for now, but the rusty bits are still embedded into the rope,...

Evening All I recently purchased a second hand winch, and upon inspection the drum has a bit of surface rust, not a problem, I will just run the rope out and rust kill/POR15 it. Well, as I ran the rope out the last turn was stuck to the drum, the rust is pretty flaky and the rope was literally stuck...
