Properties & applications:

The most common use is for pile drilling machines. Suitable for tower cranes but not recommended if the rope length is very long. Used also for hoisting applications with 1:1 reeving or multiple reeving with greater height. Similar flexibility to 18x7 but higher breaking force and more resistant to abrasion and drum crushing.
