Will this rust if left outdoors?

Asked by OutdoorSpace April 29, 2020
3
Answers

This cable will eventually rust, and it always depends on the conditions. If you are using it and flexing or rubbing on the cable, the coating will come off more quickly. If you use it in a more or less static condition like a deck handrail, it will last longer. Galvanization delays the inevitable, and the thicker the coating, the longer the delay. This coating is thin to allow it to be flexible (electroplated not hot-dipped).

Would this be suitable for a guide wire for patio lighting

Answers

This would be extremely heavy and thick for that type of use (it's used on smaller winches). Better to buy 1/16 wire rope, which Home Depot sells.

I want to use this for an outdoor aerial silk rig system, I was wondering what is the max heat capacity.

Answer

We have not tested specifically for melting point or heat capacity of this product. If more detail is provided we could work with the manufacturer to confirm its capability.

what is the break strength? Thanks

Asked by Tiara May 1, 2019
2
Answers

The breaking strength of wire rope seems to be 5 times the working load limit. In the case of 1/4", that would be 1400 lbs x 5 = 7000 lbs. You only achieve that with proper terminations and no broken strands or kinks.

Answers

I've used 1/4" wire rope with a 'come-a-long' to persuade jack pines to fall in the direction I choose so the strength is there and the cable would at least exert some influence. Depending on the wind and the tree it may still fall sideways so that should be a consideration.

I am dropping some large trees, some of which are leaning slightly the opposite way of intended d...

I've used 100' 1/4" wire rope with a come-a-long to fall trees many times so, yes, this should work well.

what's the best way to cut this? Does it shred/splinter once you do?

Asked by Lee July 17, 2017
5
Answers

Tape off the area you want to cut with just about any tape, even masking tape or plastic packing tape works, then cut it with an abrasive wheel, e.g. a 4" electric grinder with a cut-off wheel.

Will the swaged eye support the 1400 pound weight tension? I'm using it for a tree swing & I doubt ever exceed 600 lbs

Bought this so my dog can go outside and have freedom. The simplified version is this cable is attached to my house and a tree on the other side of my hard, there's a little pully on the big cable, another little cable linked from that pully to what attaches to the dog's collar. She's a good 45-50lbs, labrador/pitty mix. She hasn't broken it yet, and she hopefully can't without a lot of effort. So seems good to me!

Just the right thickness for the job, not to hard to cut with cable cutters and easy to secure using the 1/4in cable clamps also sold at Home Depot.
