September 18, 2020
Can this be used in a block and tackle rig (lifting about 200 to 250 lbs.)?
2 Answers
Yes, assuming the block and tackle are meant for use with 1/2" 3-Strand rope.

After a long search, I sourced a 4 inch, 3000lb pulley which matches this rope well. I've loaded it in pulleys at greater loading than 250lb. It is a stiff rope, not as soft or flexible as others I've used.

Can this rope be used in a come along (winch) for pulling a tree?
2 Answers
It very well may work, but if being used on the Maasdam A-0, then we would recommend using regular 1/2" PolyDac.
Submitted by: WRS on June 26, 2019
As received, it's visibly thinner than the 1/2 inch polydac which came with my Maasdam puller. Both ropes can slip a little in the rope winch, until seated and tensioned. I'm very pleased with the blue steel rope for use with my Maasdam Rope Puller. Aside from a little more discipline required in handling the stiff rope, I observe the blue steel as out-performing the polydac which came with my puller. https://youtu.be/R7aUgfr76Fg

Will this work in a Maasdam long haul rope puller?
2 Answers
Maasdam only recommends using their rope, because it's the only rope they officially test and approve.  That said, customers do use different ropes.  This rope "should" work but we cannot guarantee it.  For best results, stick with 1/2" PolyDac.

Joshua
from Oakland, CA asked:
May 26, 2018
I am working on building a rope ladder. It will be outside, in the elements and the sun and heat and rain. People as heavy as 250 lbs will climb on it. I am looking for a strong, and very low stretch rope at a good price. Would this work? The weight rating seems right, I am most curious about how much it will stretch under load.
1 Answer
We checked with our supplier, and they had the following recommendations. 1) Go with one size bigger, 5/8". They feel the 1/2" rope will be pretty small to try and hold onto, and we tend to agree. 2) There is a 12-strand version of this rope available, and they suggest you go with that as it is a more stable construction compared to 3-strand. If you want to place an order please call us @ 503-399-7037 and we can assist you.
