Default Re: cable retract

On the 1:1 logging trucks, here in Washington State, we hang all of our umbilicals on the sliding reach, suspended via cable loops. Each section has enough slack draped between it that it won't pull umbelicals apart when we stretch out, but not so much that it drags when fully shortened.
