"Up and down, high and low – with amassive load on the hook or sometimes with very little on it. The hoist rope on a crane is subject to constant stress and completes a range of tasks. Although variety is the spice of life, it means a great deal of stress for the hoist rope. Rope care is very important to ensure that the rope is not allowed to go over its load limit.

This enables the service life of the rope to be significantly extended. One major point is that the hoist rope should be regularly coiled up with adequate tension. This is not difficult, nor does it take lots of time. Furthermore, the process can often be completed during down times on the site. The rope is then neatly coiled on the winch so that there is no risk of cutting into the layers beneath.

Try it. It's really worthwhile!

During my work in many countries around the world I have found that calculating the tension and coiling up the rope is not easy to explain in words. In fact, the whole process is really not difficult once you have seen it done. That is why we have made an information film – How to extend the service life of hoisting ropes. Take a look at it, and if you have any questions simply get in touch with your Liebherr partner."
