Sling-Choker Mfg. (Hamilton) Ltd. recently had the opportunity to work with Kerr Crane and their Terex-Demag AC 350 400-tonne mobile crane. Kerr Crane approached Sling-Choker to explore options for servicing the main line on the crane, and it was decided that pressing a new ferrule on the crane’s existing 23mm, 35 x 7, non-rotating wire rope was the best and most cost-effective option for the customer.

Due to the crane’s busy operating schedule, the customer had a tight downtime window and could only give us minimal notice before the crane would be driven from Timmins to Hamilton. Sling-Choker accommodated the request, and with the machine shop on standby for any last-minute modifications, had the ferrule installed the morning after the crane arrived. The wire rope and ferrule were proof tested to 40% breaking strength, 46,000 lbs, conforming to ASME B30.30, EN13411. 

Please get in touch with Sling-Choker Mfg. (Hamilton) Ltd. at 1-888-645-5025 if your company is planning on replacing or servicing any of your crane’s hoisting lines.
