self releasing snatch blocks
« on: March 07, 2013, 09:03:48 AM »
If you missed the thread in the Forestry and Logging forum, I've still got 4 of the self releasing snatch blocks available.
http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,64704.0.html

 

 

They are $150.00 and 10.00 shipping.

Thanks,
Greg

I don't have any way of rating it officially. It is a duplicate of the Farmi style block with some improvements. I use mine with a Fransgard 4000 winch rated at 8800 lbs. pull. They're sturdy.

Great, Albert. I hope you get a lot of use from it.

There are still two more of these available if anyone's been considering one.

Thanks,
Greg

Any chance you still have some of these left?

Sorry for the late reply, Piston. I didn't see your post right away.
These have all been sold. There has been some continued interest, but don't know if there's enough to make another batch or not.

Thanks,
Greg

I got one of APM's self-releasing snatch blocks, and have been very impressed with its construction.  It's holding up well.  Easily the equal of the one I bought from Labonville years ago, and a lot more reasonably priced (Labonville's price is up to $285 now).

I got two from him and they are not only the equal but IMO superior to the original which is significantly more expensive.  If he was to make more you could not go wrong buying them from him. 

Top quality equipment and top individual as well from my experience.

You won't see APM's specific model, but the Labonville's web site shows one in action.  I can't remember if it's a video specifically about snatch blocks, or if it's one about the logging winches they sell. Either way, there's a shot or two of a self-releasing snatch block in action.

You can put me on the list for one if you make more also.  It looks like a quality piece and the reviews have been good.

I see Greg (APM) hasn't been on in a while.  It looks as though we're up to about a half-dozen folks who are interested in his snatch blocks.  I'm not sure how many he needs to make it worth running up a batch of them.

I sent him a PM to see if he's still around.  If that doesn't work, I think APM's phone number is engraved on the block I bought from him.  I'll give im a buzz and see what's up.
