Tow rope is essential to your business and your safety. Sooner or later you will have a truck stuck in the mud, or some other inconvenient place. So, you need to have a tow rope handy.
The best rope to own, like your winch rope, is made of synthetic fiber. Double braid cordage offers high strength and low stretch properties – ideal for a tow rope. In addition, synthetic ropes offer excellent wear life.
You may be asking … what size tow rope do I need? Here’s a good rule of thumb:
- Multiply the weight of your vehicle by 2.5 times to get the right diameter tow rope.
- The 2.5 multiplier takes into account weather, terrain, and how badly stuck the truck is. Since every towing application is different, this formula seems to work well.
- If the vehicle weighs 40,000 lbs. you would want to use a tow rope around the 100,000 lbs. range, which would be the 1-1/2” (90,000 lb. breaking).
