Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
In recognition of the unique requirements found in Swiftwater Rescue, SMC has created an entirely new pulley for 2005. This aluminum pulley weighs 6 oz. and features a 2" sheave. The anodized aluminum sideplates feature a series of holes which help to minimize the hydroplaning effect that might otherwise occur with a typical pulley. Sideplates are also configured to allow this pulley to work as a Prusik Minding Pulley. Sealed Ball Bearings provide optimal efficiency.
SMC Swiftwater Pulley DECENT FEATURES of the SMC Swiftwater Pulley Fits between the SMC Micro PMP and 3" PMPs in both size and work load Represents a reasonably priced, non-NFPA alternative to other mid-sized pulleys. Made with high quality aluminum Weighs 6 oz. and features a 2'' sheave Anodized side plates feature a series of holes that help to minimize the hydroplaning effect Configured to allow to work as a Prusik Minding Pulley Precisely tensioned and for easy one-handed operation and secure placement at any point along the rope High quality, sealed ball bearings help to provide the optimal efficiency that is so crucial in rope rescue systems They help to reduce the performance-robbing resistance that is inherent in most multiple component systems Not prone to failure under misaligned loads or with twisted gear that may occur with needle bearings The wide and flat base maximizes the effectiveness of a Prusik hitch while a unique side plate formation allows the use of larger ropes in a compact pulley. The top hole accepts 2 large rescue carabiners or multiple small carabiners Can be rotated freely and completely even while closed The SPECS Weight: 170gm / 6 oz Strength: 34 kN Max Rope Diameter: 13mm ALL CLIMBING SALES ARE FINAL.
