857 lift cable size

Recommended Posts

my 857 has never had a rear lift cable i have some cable from my old garage door and was going to local hardware and buy some small clevis and make my own cable. what size cable diameter was on these 857 originally. my cable guide is there on top trans thought i just thread a cable thru it and put some clevises on both ends.

Your best bet would be to use one of the new cables made by @wheelhorseman, they are great

Unless you have the correct ends and a hydraulic crimping machine - the ends will not hold against that kind of weight load from available implements on the rear hitch . Lowell's cables are better than factory in my opinion and really reasonably priced for the quality...
