Jimmy Green 6:1 Purchase System

All Jimmy Green Purchase System components are selected, measured, cut to length, spliced, whipped and reeved together in house by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team.

These block and tackle systems are produced to order and therefore subject to splicing order lead times.

The Jimmy Green 6:1 purchase system is designed to deliver a significant power advantage for lifting heavy loads onboard by effectively dividing the weight you need to lift by a factor of 6.


Jimmy Green 6:1 Purchase System Facts and Features:

The top triple block features a cam cleat so that the line can be secured after each pull.

Based on a maximum straight lift for a single person of 20kg, this purchase system is not suited for lifting loads > 120kg
