It was only a try out to see whether we needed a larger machine or not.
It was slung eventually on a Large D Shackle from the Links arm. Just used the one Heavy Sling in the end also ,simple Job in the end.

I'd have a good look at that sling, in the original pic, Huw, before you give it any further serious use ... green is only 2 tonnes straight lift, as a general rule of thumb, less in a choke, but the definitive rating will be the number of lines of stitching in the length of it ..... one, two, three, etc., one row per tonne for its SWL straight
Varies dramatically, depending how it's used though, no matter what the size.

Best pic I can find on the stitching rows, but can see it .. just !!
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
