The picture of the slung pipe. Always try to keep the bucket ram open when lifting. It is one thing less to fail, but also helps prevent snagging of the lifting gear which can lead to premature failure.
It's a big issue within the "plant / construction industry" & I don't want you getting unnecessary flack from keyboard warriors when a simple "heads up" is all that's required
Thanks, It was slung like that because i didn't want to stress the hook to Much, Its says 3000kg on it but not convinced it would take it at the open end if you see what i mean.Its under threat of being cut off as it dont look right for lifting and its very good at catching anything that can snag on it.
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.

No problem, you took the observation the way it was intended.

As for the hook, Don't cut it off, you'll forever kick yourself. Saw the perfect solution on a machine in Scotland. O/op having exatly same problem as you, it constantly snagging branches etc so he bolted a blanking plate either side of it. Still has use of the hook should he ever need it, simply by removing the bolts.

Cheers ,sounds like a good plan, Just had a look back at the picture now. why hell i had the quick fit rolled over so much i dont know.
Still prefer the link arm to lift from, thats plated for 6 ton. Bit more than the machine ever going to lift.

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 !!
