How to inspect your ATV winch line and when should you replace it?

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.

 

  1. Fully 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.
  2. If 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 condition.
  3. If your line is showing wear and tear it's time to investigate replacing it.

 

Northern strand carries a full line of lines both synthetic and wire rope that is specifically manufactured to be used in winch lines. Did you know our Dyneema synthetic winch line has many benefits over traditional wire rope. Dyneema rope will not splinter, kink or curl. It’s also much easier on the hands in cold weather.

 

With the education and training relied on by some of the largest mining operations in Saskatchewan for their wire hoisting needs. Our experts are uniquely positioned to help you find the right line got your equipment and one that will work for you and your needs.

 

Our products are spliced and tested on-site with the top industry ratings in place. Each one of our synthetic ropes comes with the hook correctly spliced onto the end as well as the metal thimble and comes packaged with all the specifications of the specific line, including tensile strength, length and material. We have many standard sizes and lengths in stock and ready for pick up. We are also able to make any specific size and length you might need to order.

 

So if you are looking to replace your current line or upgrade to a different type of line that will better suit the work you need to do come and talk to our incredibly knowledgeable team or shop online at shop.northenstrands.com

Northern Strands Is Having a Sale On Tow Kits! Tow Strap, Winch Line or Tow Rope Kits Available

We at Northern Strands thought this would be a great time to have a sale on Tow Kits with the huge snowfall Saskatchewan had this week. We wanted to give everyone a deal on recovery straps, winch lines, and tow ropes when they need them the most. Saskatoon was hit particularly hard and many people were stuck and continue to get stuck on residential streets. And you know this won't be the last snow dump we get this winter! 

All of our Tow Kits come with Soft Shackles. Soft Shackles are an excellent lightweight replacement for steel shackles. Many new trucks have tow lugs on the front that you cannot hook to without wrecking your bumper. This type of shackle can also be easily wrapped around difficult pulling points and not scratch vehicle paint. The Soft Shackle is complete with a locking system for ease of use and a slip ring for extra security. Made with high-strength durable. Dyneema Synthetic Rope, the Soft Shackle is constructed with one piece of material. This means that there are no pins that need to be fastened.
