Jimmy Green 8:1 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 8:1 purchase system is designed to deliver a tremendous power advantage for dealing with heavy loads.
Jimmy Green 8:1 Purchase System Facts and Features:
The Jimmy Green 8:1 purchase system is designed to help cope with heavy loads by effectively dividing the weight by a factor of 8.
For example, if you want to achieve a straight lift of 160kg, you will need 20kg of pulling power. If you think 20kg is unmanageable, some other form of physical advantage will be required in 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 triple block features a cam cleat so that the line can be secured after each pull.
Rope Colour: white with red coding unless otherwise specified
Jimmy Green block and tackle 8:1 purchase system specification:
30 metres of 8mm LIROS Braid on Braid bright white polyester with red code spliced to a single block with becket.
The line is reeved through another single block before transferring to a triple block setup with a cam.
The bottom block is spliced to a stainless steel carabiner hook with 1 metre of LIROS 8mm 3 strand polyester.
The hook makes for an easy snap-on action to secure the load.
