Warn M12000 - converting to synthetic line

I couldn't find a definitive thread.

The biggest Warn synthetic line is a 9,000lb 3/8" synthetic line, (#76300) -- the stock winch is a 12,000lb winch.....?!?

Alternatively, which line at http://www.winchline.com is the right one for the M12000?

Call Thor at Winchline (Viking Offroad). He'll tell you all you need to know. 818-842-0595

Re: Warn M12000 - converting to synthetic line

The only thing to watch out for with a Warn and synthetic line, is powering out the winchline (e.g. lowering yourself or someone else down a hill). The winch brake is located inside the drum and will cause the drum to heat up considerably. Freespooling the winchline out (dragging it to an anchor point does not cause any heat to be generated).

Re: Warn M12000 - converting to synthetic line

I have the same winch and got my synthetic line from Thor at Viking Offroad (Winchline) too. I had him put some special high temperature line on the first 10-20 feet or so due to the heat issue. I suggest give him a ring and mention that.

I have Winch line on all 6 of my rigs .I had them add Fire line that hands the heat of the winch spool when it does get heated up.

It's only rated at 9000 lbs? Mine is rated for 26,000 and it's 3/8.

Maybe Warn is conservative? Anyway, I ordered 100' @ 3/8" from Thor, with a safety thimble end, and some Delrin rollers.
