@mainegrizz660, I'm sure others will disagree, but all I did was go to Harbor Freight and bought the synthetic wire rope kit for $29.00. I removed the black "protector" sleeves that came on it because they took up too much spool. So far, I have yanked out small trees by the roots, winched the Grizz out of a snowbank a couple times, and winched out some trees that I cut. Works fine. My buddy has the same thing. He uses it all the time on his snowplow. He says it lasts over twice as long as the steel cable used to.
