What to use to cut winch cable

My Warn came with a 94ft cable.They only had a 80 or 100 ft cable avail.I got the 100ft but it fills up the drum really full & Im afraid it will be too much.What should I use to cut 6ft off the cable.I plan on cutting it at the end it bolts to spool.

Use tape where you are going to cut it and that should keep the ends from coming apart. Duct tape or electrical your choice, just make sure it's tight

Angle grinder with a cut off blade is a good option.

Also can I just crimp put a heavy duty electrical terminal end on it,the brass type.I wouldent imagine it ever gets a lot of force pulling on it.
