Rope is for fishing boats and tree guys.

Its been marketed to offroad people because its lightweight and very profitable when cut into 100' sections and the ends braided around a thimble.   BIG money to be made by telling 4x4ers how safe fishing rope is for their winch.


You wont see rope used for skidding logs on logging sites, on tow trucks, cranes, or any commercial rig other than tree service (cuz its light) and fishing boats (cuz it wont rust).

Why is cable preferred over winch rope for parbuckling? I have used rope for years doing extreme offloading and recovery. To me rope seems safer.

Look at it this way, trucks, jeeps have wheels, logs don't. If your trailer that you have is just for logs, look into a arch and load from the back. So much easy and you are out the way if a cable pops.

This is mine that I built. I can remove the arch by unbolting two bolts. ;D

Tow trucks do use MasterPull 3/4" winch rope on rollbacks in my neck of the woods.

Their website lists 262 foot of 3/4" synthetic tow truck and wrecker rope at $5,334.  And...they are out of it!

Not going to be exclusively for logs.

Nice equipment trailer. You still could add a arch and build it to were you can unbolt it. The way your trailer it built, that would be easy and 10x more easy to load logs from the back. ;D

I made my arch unboltable. Two large bolts and it's off.

Winch rope frays very easily when rubbing on rocks or sharp objects. The best reason to have it is no kinetic energy. So when it snaps is usually just drops to the ground.

It is required for many competitions because of the improved safety factor over steel cable.
I knew what I thought I meant.

Anyone here using a Warn 8274 on a trailer? If so how did you mount it? Hope to look at if Tue. Think it was manufactured in 1976.

I made a receiver mount for my Warn M8000 winch. My gooseneck trailer has a 2" receiver welded on the front of the bed so for parbuckling I use a snachblock on the opposite side to redirect the line.

The 8274 mounts vertically. Pic of one:



has to mount on something like this:



Could weld a 2" tube to the bottom of the mount or see if it would bolt to a Curt or DrawTite receiver mount.
Another consideration is weight, thing weighs ~130#.

The 8274 Warns are heavy but by far the fastest winch made.

I had one on the front of a '68 Bronco, and it was bullet proof.  I do not recall that it was that heavy because I could pick it up.

I have no idea how much my 16,500 with the carrier weights.
I can pick it up but I would not want to have to carry it to far.

Here's a few pictures from back before I had a sawmill. I'm loading up some birch logs for a trip to a sawyer.  And parbuckling is the correct term. I have since fabricated better ramps for the purpose and still use the four wheeler for a power source.

You can par buckle just about anything . Like a solar kiln that blew over in a storm

I parbuckled logs onto the back of my '49 GMC truck before I knew it was called parbuckling.  If asked I would have told you a parbuckle was a belt buckle worn by a golfer. Shirley that must be worth something elaborate or not.
