    Lifting straps/sling to avoid scratches and scuffs

    Hi all at times I need to lift certain items with my loader hooks and I don’t want to mark them up with chains.

    I’m trying to preserve their painted finish as much as possible

    Any recommendations for a lifting slings or straps to achieve this ???

    Checkout site sponsor Ken's Bolt-On Hooks for slings, straps, D-rings, etc.

    I used one of these slings last winter to hoist my cabs when installing them on the 1025Rs. I had no issues with scratches or mars, but I did make sure the slings were clean first.

    Ken has some awesome slings with the rings to fit your loader hooks on them. He has several different lengths to choose from and a really good price on them. I have a few myself, very well built. Use that link above or google Kens Bolt On Hooks.

    There is a discussion going on right now about this - which should really be in this section and not the sub-compact section......

    Get yourself some nylon slings. Buy them in pairs. I prefer the endless ones over the ones with eyes.

    I keep a 4" wide 25 ft one rolled up in a plastic ammo box, Chains and clevis hooks etc in a flat one. That way I don't have to look for them when needed away from home.

    Chains are for pulling logs not lifting things, very few chains you buy and most people use are actually lifting chains most are rated at pulling force. I am an EPRI certified Master Rigger as one of my qualifications at work, we NEVER lift or rig with chains, ever.Get some quality nylon straps and you will be good to go. TSC or RK carry decent ones for the price, high quality stuff gets real expensive real quick.

    When you mentioned being a certified rigger it reminded me of this - a basic rigging handbook that I found very useful.

    When I was an equipment operator instructor for the state we gave a primer on rigging to the Gradall and track hoe classes.

    Anyone who is lifting anything should at least glance through the handbook.

    I will admit to lifting with 5/16" grade 70 chain. I know not rated for lifting.
    I am thinking if I can find some old junk fire hose and cut into 2' lengths, they could be slid on the chain where protection is needed.
