Snatch Block 9000
snatch block is an incredibly useful piece of recovery equipment that enables
you to retrieve loads that are double a winch's capacity by reducing the load on
the winch by half. To add to ARB's range of snatch blocks and recovery
equipment, an innovative new snatch block for both off road and competition use
has just been released.
Designed in Australia by ARB engineers, the Snatch Block 9000 features a
revolutionary, computer optimized two-piece polymer pulley design for increased
functionality and safety during a vehicle recovery. Tested to withstand the
extremes of off-road competition winching, the snatch block features rounded
safety edges to protect against pinch points during recovery situations, and
also allows for easy one-handed loading and unloading of the cable or rope. The
working load encountered during winching also has a positive effect on the
snatch block by causing the plates to press together for extra support.
Suitable for use with bow shackle sizes up to 8.5 ton, the snatch block features
high strength, low density materials which reduce the total weight of the block
by up to 50% over other comparable rated snatch blocks. The design includes
self-righting plates to eliminate the need to correctly position the block while
introducing cable tension, while the inner pulley is made from self lubricating
crystalline polymer to enable operation under high loads without the need for
working load: 19,800lb
breaking strength: 38,500lb
side plate material: 1/5" cold rolled steel
pulley material: specialized polymer
pulley diameter: 4 1/3"
cable size: 1/3" - 1/2"
greasable: not required
manufactured from high strength, low density materials, the 19,800lb snatch
block is strong but lightweight, making it ideal for competition purposes.
