Clarke cut and climb are pretty cheap for all things of a forestry nature.

Re: Tractor Skidding Winch Rope?

Hi,

I use a guy from a company called lifting equipment services. 50m of 17mm steel with hook for 130 last year. I wouldn't go near clarkes (although they're good for many things) as the difference in price is just scary.

Cheers,

Andrew
