I can say that you might be able I get closer. Military service! That's where you get the closest. Another guy watching your back all day everyday while deployed to foreign nations protecting this wonderful country!

The physics involved when it comes to putting chains and cables and straps under load via a winch or engine etc, create a very great danger. You can either learn the hard way and kill some one. Or learn the smart way, which you can still get killed, but you lessen the chances. If your rigging experience is lacking. Get out with some guys that truly know their stuff. And study and learn from them. This stuff can save or take away your life, or your loved ones. Don't take chances when there is no need. Theres rigging courses you can take through technical institutes aswell. Used for rigging in construction with cranes etc. all the same concepts. Know your equipment and it's capabilities, and know how to asses the task at hand safely and efficiently with your gear you have.. In the end the point of the rigging is to get you home safe. Not dead.




From a Retired Ironworker, that's the best advice I have read on this forum.

Michigunman Agree that if it's been used with wire rope and is marred up sure, I wouldn't use rope on it. If it's only being used for synthetic it's not going to get burs to begin with. Something definitely to be aware of if someone pulls out a block that is not yours.

Hmm, never heard of that. How would a steel pulley ruin synthetic rope?

Michigan jeeper Thanks guys this is a lot of help to me and most likely many others!

AllMudd Yes it does. But I wouldn't say it's 100% accurate. If you winch is 9000, they say you can pull 18000 with a snatch block. But then your running into can your cable or bumper handle that much?
07-07-2013 08:20 PM
Michigan jeeper I've heard it doubles your winches pulling power is that true?
07-07-2013 06:52 PM
AllMudd Warn sells one for their winches and I have it. I've only needed to use it once but it helps and does wonders!
07-07-2013 06:15 PM
roadyrob yes, it will work fine with steel cable. get a block thats at least double your winch.
