I need to replace the wire rope/cable on my UST TRX-80HD, which I use with
an HDX-555. The cable got bent (long story) and Im concerned that its
structural integrity has been compromised. Better safe than sorry.
Does anyone know the specs for the rope? Its ¼ and believe its galvanized
(vs stainless), but I dont know the length (absent pulling and measuring
it), strength to look for (if there is such a spec) or anything else to look
for in a replacement. I called UST but they wont release any information
about it. I can order a replacement kit but aside from the expense, theres
at least an 8 week lead time. Any guidance would be appreciated.
