ANSI suggests that a properly selected winchline needs to have the same rating as the boom of your truck, and the ropes rating should be 20% of its ultimate break strength.


Yale's high modulus fiber winch lines are your answer. Our Spectra based Maxibraid Plus has working loads 40% higher than conventional polyester, our Vectran based Crystalyne product is almost double for the same diameter. All while eliminating most of the elasticity you've been dealing with every day. Both of these ropes provide the increased security of a double braid's durability, and all their strength is derived from the core's structured fibers.


Check the data plate on your digger derrick, the diameter and length you have on your machine now, then input the data into the form on the left and we will show you your options and how to obtain your compliant winchlines.
