Jimmy Green Handy Billy 4:1 Purchase System
All Jimmy Green Block and Tackle components are selected, measured, cut to length, spliced, whipped and reeved together in-house by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team.
These purchase systems are produced to order and, therefore, subject to splicing order lead times.
Jimmy Green Block and Tackle Helpful Facts and Features:
The Jimmy Green 4:1 purchase system is designed to help cope with heavy loads by effectively dividing the weight by a factor of 4.
For example, if you want to achieve a straight lift of 120kg, you will need 30kg of pulling power. If you think that 30kg is unmanageable, you will either need a system with more purchase: 6:1 or 8:1or you will need to add some other form of physical advantage into your system, e.g. a winch.
Please note that the information above applies to a straight lift - it will take less pulling power if you only try to move a load sideways.
The top fiddle features a cam to grip the retrieved line.
