Questions & Answers

What does choker "WLL" stand for?
1 Answer
"WLL" stands for Working Load Limit. You may also see the abbreviated as "SWL" which stands for Safe Working Load. The two terms are interchangeable. Basically this represents the maximum force you should apply to the choker. It is not the same as Breaking Strength, which is often abbreviated as "MBS" or "ABS". Breaking Strength refers to the load at which the product will likely fail. The Working Load Limit is typically arrived at by dividing the Breaking Strength by 3, 4 or 5. The exact multiplier varies by product, and this is referred to as the Safety Factor, or Design Factor. Those two terms are also interchangeable.

I grew up in a logging family. Having set thousands of chokers behind Cats and on the high lead, your product is great for small jobs behind my pickup here in Southeast NC.

Purchased it to pull shrub stumps out of the ground. The choker cable worked perfectly, I couldn't have been happier with how it performed! Westech rigging was great to work with. I will be doing business with them again.
  • Worked as expected!

log choker for personal wood lot use
December 8, 2017
my builder left me a pile of logs on a 12 degree slope about 9' tall and a good 20' long. I tried hiring someone to take them away but they couldn't get any heavy equipment in the area. So I bought this choker and starting pulling logs off with my Ranger. Works like a charm and I don't feel in (much) danger.
  • easy to use. no worries about breaking. made me feel confident and safe when pulling big logs off the pile
  • Nothing so far
