I made two sketches myself.

- one to show the "start in the middle" idea, with the according sheeve numbers from the diagram:


- the other is a reeving diagram viewed from behind the crane, with the sheeves renumbered chronologically for each side.
Left: 1--16, right 0-1--16.
The big arrows after 16 go to the winchdrum.

Hi LiebherrDemag90,

Likewise I cant remember it's name and I don't have any close ups, but when I get back from work (Monday) I will take a few shots and post them on the forum.

Hi Guys,
Further to LiebherrDemag90 request for some close ups of the lifting tackle used for the windmill tower sections I believe they are called snatch blocks (please correct me if I am wrong, they may be called something different in other countries). Here are some photos



Close up of bracket connection to tower




Side on view showing brass sheave


Attached to hook block




Under load






Just like to say that all items and slings (except shackles YCC shackles) were hand crafted by me.

Hope you like.

Steve.

Many thanks for the additional photos. Appreciated it. Just wondering, are those mini bolts and nuts that held the pulley thingy together? Or just riveted?

I look at these cranes and think to myself, "man, this would be a really nice addition to my collection someday". I then realize to reeve it up that I have no patience for this nor do I have any clue on how to do it.

No just brass rod cut slightly wider than the snatch block, then light file on the ends in a lathe, just to round off a bit, the hole is just slightly smaller to give a tight fit, and then a dab of super glue to keep in place.

Just received my 1600/2 and by looking at the reeving diagram I am a little overwhelmed! So after reeving does it move pretty smooth?

Did you use the manual only? Maybe my scetches at the top of this page can help. To check if you didn't turn the wrong way somewhere.

So I cracked my open Mammoet LR1600/2 today and began replacing the damaged track links, I quickly burned through my included spares. Has anyone here dealt with NZG for additional replacements? and is the best way to E-mail them direct through their main site? I had six replacements in the box but I need seven, and I would like to have a few in case some break in the future.

Hi all, I managed to reeve my A frame over the weekend, first one I've ever done, took my over six hours with breaks to rest my eyes. A big thanks to Victor Pay for his amazing diagrams, those were extremely helpful!! I highlighted each length of rope on the diagram as I ran it to prevent getting lost.

I keep checking in on this topic and it shows very well how members all help each other!

I have yet to get the LR 1600 and am waiting on the NEEB version, but it looks like it will be September now before it ships. Not sure I can wait that long!

I was a little apprehensive about buying the crane just because of the reeving, but seeing how well you mapped it out sold me on it. Ordered it Saturday. Thanks in advance.
