Default Best place to get new winch cable???

I snapped the 3/8 cable on my MM9000 yesterday, need to get a new one pretty soon. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I've got a good local rigging supply place but I'm guessing when I call them tomorrow they'll want an arm/leg.


3/8 x 100'

You remember what it's like at the nursery. Front right hit a sinkhole below some ice and pulling backwards was not an option. It got a whole lot worse right after I took this pic. I had to hook 2 (8400#) skid steers together as an anchor.

check out the vendor forum here, there are numerous companies that can supply you with a cable for a good price.

In retrospect, that would have been a good idea. I didn't think for a second that my cable would snap - I've dragged those skid-steers through 3' deep slop with no troubles before.

will call next time
