    I'm not sure what you mean by "2700 lb pull". Is that breaking strength? 
If so, lifting 1500# is way overloading the cable. Typical wire rope safe 
working load applications are around 20% of ultimate breaking strength so it 
would be rated at 540# - a long way from 1500. 

    You might clarify some of these points.
