I have about 180' of wire rope on my Koenig. No idea how much my brothers Ramsey has. We rewound it one afternoon and had well over 100' out and plenty of the 1/4 line was still on the drum. One trick is to use a couple 2x4s clamped together to keep tension on the line as you wind it back up. I usually have one of them long enough to have it resting on the ground so you can pivot the thing to keep the wraps going on nicely.
