Thinking of upgrading or modernising my snatch block. The one I have now is probably over 40 years old and is quite large at 300 mm long and 170 mm wide, that's the pulley diameter. There is nothing wrong with it just the physical size. If I upgrade does anybody have any recommendations as to brand and rating. I saw a Bushranger rated at 7000 kgs on Ebay for $55 and looked at the local camping shop and they had the same snatch block for $29. The winch is a T Max 9000 lbs unit mounted to a new BT50. Should I double the rating for the snatch block to the rating of the winch? I realise the 9000 lbs is only achieved on the last layer of the rope on the drum.
