Main- and auxiliary hoist line on mobile- and truck cranes. Often used as a single point line. Large lifting heights will require a tag line to prevent excessive spinning of the load. Smaller sizes (< 3/8”) are sometimes used on overhead cranes.
NOT recommended for construction tower cranes.
Rope characteristic: Using the rope to it’s maximum fatigue life will cause the rope to deteriorate from the inside out. Sudden rope failures may be the result. For this reason we do not recommend this construction for tower cranes. There have been fatal and catastrophic accidents involving this rope construction because of undetected inner rope fatigue.
