Synthetic Winch Rope vs Steel Cable
Jun 04, 2021
Planning is one of the most crucial parts of forming a great strategy and it can help to eliminate or mitigate the risks posed by any unwanted event. It not only saves crucial time but at the same time keeps you away from a lot of hassle. One area that particularly requires careful & somewhat meticulous planning is towing, in fact, you will be surprised to know how much planning goes into the daily rescue activities of professionals. Sturdy and reliable rescue equipment forms the backbone of any rescue mission and winch ropes are, without a doubt, the most vital component included in the package. However, not all winch ropes are made using the same standards, some brands make better ropes than others. Here, we will take an in-depth look at Miolle synthetic winch rope.
· Upgrading your Winch from Wire to Synthetic Rope
The Miolle synthetic winch rope has practically made the steel cables a necessity of the past mainly because of three reasons. The first and rather obvious reason is that the winch rope is significantly lighter than its counterpart made from steel which makes it much more mobile than them. Nobody wants to move around with a massive steel cable that occupies a good amount of storage space and at the same time is difficult and sometimes even impossible to pack in a secure package.
The next reason why Miolle winch ropes are the better bet over a steel cable is the superior breaking strength that enables them to tow or recover heavier loads than the traditional cables. The unique selling proposition of steel cables in the past was their ability to pull heavier stuff, but Miolle's synthetic winch rope has now effectively taken its place due to the advanced manufacturing techniques that ultimately give the rope a strength that is greater in magnitude than many steel cables.
The last but certainly not the least reason why people are increasingly preferring Miolle’s synthetic winch rope over steel cables is because they are rust-proof. On the other hand, no matter how well coated a steel cable is, it is always going to rust some time, the rusting process will especially be much faster if you live near a coastal area or if the cable is regularly used in a damp or wet environment. Conversely, you can use the Miolle synthetic winch rope anywhere anytime without having to worry about rust as synthetic ropes are practically rust-proof.
· Standard Amenities Included in the Baggie:
A winch rope is only complete when accompanied by a durable hook and a rubber stopper. The hook acts as a bridge and forms a secure connection with another vehicle or an object so that it can be pulled safely. The rubber stopper might seem a bit unnecessary, but it protects the winch line from getting destroyed in case the winch was over-reeled. Both these essential accessories are included with the winch rope that you will order which will save you crucial time and money and will provide you with the best bang for your buck. You might be thinking that the hook and the stopper might not have enough strength to do the task and are packed with the rope just as a formality. Well, the good news is that both these accessories are made using the highest quality standards just as the winch rope, and they will surely surprise you with their outstanding load-bearing strength.
The 80-steel clevis sling hook is rated at a respectable 10,000lbs. which is plenty for routine pulling jobs. It is accompanied by a spring-loaded safety latch that delivers it the protection most professional rescue workers want from their rescue equipment. Moreover, the tow hook can be attached to a wide variety of winch ropes which makes it the go-to hook for any kind of rescue mission.
The inclusion of a tow hook and rubber stop in the package combined makes for a great deal, but not everyone wants these accessories as some people are only looking for a reliable synthetic winch rope. Therefore, in order to cater to the needs of such people, Miolle also offers the winch rope without any hook and stopper. You can solely order 50 feet long and ¼ inch thick winch rope any time, all you need to do is to select the variation of the product that is shipped without a hook & the stopper.

· Quirks of Miolle Winch Rope:
Miolle is the manufacturer of premium yet highly affordable off-road accessories and their winch rope is amongst their best-selling products that is rated at 8200lbs. The material with which a rope, specifically a winch rope, is made gives it the strength and rigidity to bear the tremendous forces it has to bear when recovering (pulling) a vehicle or anything for that matter. This is precisely the reason why all Miolle recovery products including the winch rope is made from lab-tested high-quality materials that are specifically made for this purpose. The construction fiber is pre-stretched and exposed to a high temperature before it is molded into a winch rope. The prior treatments increase the structural integrity and closely bind together the individual strands of the synthetic winch rope. Another significant result of the intensive work that goes into the production is the higher (up to 50%) breaking strength compared to the winch ropes that aren’t pre-stretched.
All of these treatments would not be possible if the company hadn’t had an advanced manufacturing facility. Thanks to the USA-made production line and the compliance with all the modern industry standards, Miolle has been able to deliver to their customers highly affordable & quality off-road accessories that are currently in service across several regions in the world.
