from Kentucky asked:

Why is this item not considered a lifting device?
1 Answer
It really hinges on the guidelines from the ferrule/nub manufacturers that state their ferrules are not to be used for suspended loads.  Take this excerpt for example (see image below).  For lifting, we recommend one of our Sliding Choker Slings.

Quality Chokers
September 7, 2021
10' choker is great for logs up to about 36" behind the tractor using the 3 point or bunched brush/saplings behind the ATV. Great quality construction with durable swaged nub and loop. Easily run nub under logs with the 3/8" cable. Bought a 6', 10' and 15' but definitely use this the most behind the ATV for pulling saplings and small trees.

Have used chains for a while until I found this. This is a much better device for dragging logs out to where you can buck them.
Pros
  • Quick and easy to use
  • Lightweight and flexible
Cons
  • Sometimes ends up under the log

Perfect for a small farmer with a tractor to salvage trees for your own use or to sell. Last one lasted 5 years of hard work. At least hard work for 1 guy. 😁

My second length purchased - having this tool has quickened my pulling fallen trees.

These are Pretty Handy
April 1, 2020
I used to pick old ones up at landing sides in Forks if the logger left them. I used them to move fallen trees, large rocks, and one elk from logging roads. The end is easy to get under heavy objects and it cinches down on it when you pull. You can not push chain under anything without a choke set and it can slip or come off if it is not tight.

I left them all when I moved back east. I still run into trees on woods road and I hate carrying a lowboy chain everywhere. I bought this one to drag small hardwood closer to the road for firewood also. Really nice having a new cable!

Just what we needed. Tough. Easy to attach and hook to 4-wheeler to get 10ft pine logs dragged from the forest to the house to buck up and split. Expedites the hauling process and saves on our physical wear and tear on our bodies. Thanks!

I'll Never Break This
February 6, 2019
Wow, this was much beefier than I thought it would be. I bought it to pull desert brush and Palo Verde trees. My only concern is that the 3/8" wire rope will not choke small enough, but I will not have to worry about it snapping causing damage/injury. I will strip the cosmoline off - it's sticky and will attract dirt. Very happy.
Pros
  • Well made and designed.
Cons
  • None.
