    190' was what was left over, I had enought beer in me, as did my neighbor.
    Something to do last Fri eve.
    Thinking about pulling 50' off for an extra cable, another thing to rattle around in the back and never get used.
    A bit easier on the winch.
    Pad.

    When I bought the Jeep, it had about 225' of 1/4" on it.
    Used to be owned by a marina, guessw they didn't need much of a pull.
    About 100' left Fri morning.

    Last 2 trips out we had to do some winching, we all have winches.
    "oh look, that guy is stuck".
    Then they look at me.
    "The PTO won't heat up"
    Gives them more time to have a beer or cig I suppose.

    Thank you.
    I read an old article that warned about over heating the PTO's.
    But they were talking about 5-6 hours of continual use.
    Time for another beer myself.
