I have used synthetic line in my winch for years. Broke it the first time I plowed, re-tied it and haven't had a problem since.....This year I saw the post using a length of strap to take the weight off the rope. I have 3ft of 1 1/2 inch strap from Farm and Fleet with a plastic buckle at the plow frame end to make a loop. The other end is spooled up on the winch. Roller fairlead that came new with the synthetic rope. Once you get the strap wrapped a few times, the weight is off the rope. I haven't plowed with it yet but in the shop it seems to be holding the weight. Expecting snow again next week so maybe I will have a chance to test it.

Can't figure why your strap tore unless there was something on the roller that caused damage to the strap.

Gave her a bath and did the rear handles courtesy of @ugatyler. Got a long weekend of riding ahead in PA. Planning on relying on the winch this weekend, will be nice to see what it can do on more than just a plow.

I bought a 2017 scrambler! So far I love it. Amazing bike. Kept my 800 for hauling the gear on rides.
Also put the 26" zillas and wheels on the 800 for $350.
