New lightweight snatch block launch

Post by Bruin Beer » 03 Jun 2013 07:41

All your tuff trollers.
See this new supper light weight snatch block designed and developed by a Cruiser friend. This unit was tested in the field before official certification and proved to stand its ground.
This was launched on Facebook last week and can be found as follow:

Go to the "Search Facebook" page on Facebook, and type in "Special Industrial Supplies". Once their page opens, click on my snatch block ( the sexy red thingy!), check it out and "like" it if you like what you see please! Writing a message too would be real helpful, thanks!

This unit weighs magnitudes less than the standard steal units and as can be seen from the pictures is also allot smaller. :thumbup:

These are so neat that I would like to hang one on the front of my troll. It would improve the look impressive look even more.

Baie netjies, maar verkort die kleiner pulley-radius nie die kabel se lewe nie?

Natuurlik, as jy tou in plaas van kabel op jou wenas het, is dit nie 'n probleem nie.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Good point Peter

Pully Size
When selecting the proper snatch block you must calculate the proper pully size for the wire rope that you will be using. In order to prevent significant damage to your wire rope the towing industry has agreed on a 12:1 ratio. This can be calculated my multiplying your wire rope size by 12.
For 3/8" wire multiply 3 x 12 and divide by 8 = 4.5" this will provide you with the minimum size pully for 3/8" wire rope.
For 7/16" wire multiply 7 x 12 and divide by 16 = 5.25" this will provide you with the minimum size pully for 7/16" wire rope.

Also - Snatch blocks have a 'design load limit' and a 'working load limit' - the design limit (where it will destruct) should be divided by 4 to get to the acceptable and safe working load limit - so a 9000lb working load snatch should have a design limit of 36000lb - make sure this is the case for this product.

The pulley diameter is 100mm, same as the current steel snatch blocks available on the market.
For pricing you will need to contact Securetech.
