How to inspect your
ATV winch line and when should you replace it?
As the fall leaves are changing and the smell
of winter is on the air, it’s the perfect time to head out on the trails with
your ATV. Whether you are heading to snap some beautiful fall photos, enjoy the
crisp fall air, or if your ATV is the equipment you use for hunting it must be in
peak condition. The top of everyone’s mind is often making sure that
mechanically everything is up to scratch and while that is critical it’s the
other gear that is often overlooked. Many ATVs come equipped with a winch line
or the ability to connect a tow rope in case you get stuck or need to haul
something out. This tool is critical for an enjoyable and successful trip but
is often overlooked when we do a walk-around of our equipment before we head
out. Here are a few tips on checking over your winch and line.
extend your line from the drum and inspect the line. Make sure that it's
in good condition and there aren’t any spots on the line which are showing
wear or damage. i.e. kinks, splinters or curls.
your line is in good shape, make sure the mechanism to rewind the winch is
working properly and the mechanics on that is also in good working

You can now shop online with Northern Strands! We are extremely
excited to announce that Northern Strands has launched our very own E-Commerce Shopping
How and why did this come about? Last year, our Outside Sales Team brought
forward customer requests asking if they can buy our products online. They thought
it more convenient and time-saving to shop online through an E-Commerce Website.
We agree that online purchasing is beginning to eclipse traditional purchasing
methods. Northern Strands recognized that it was time to take on the challenge
of creating a website where customers could purchase directly from Northern
Northern Strands put together a team of employees to head up
the project and started down the path of creating the E-Commerce Shopping
Website. We researched what it would take to create, launch, and manage an E-Commerce
site. We partnered with Big Commerce as their platform was one of the best and
it also fits our business model. After several months of working on our new
Northern Strands E-Commerce Website we are proud to say our hard work paid off.
We have a great clean- looking, functional, and easy-to-use website! https://shop.northernstrands.com/
