Follow the drawing and not the instructions that came with or their updated ones. I made the mistake and dont have the patience to reeve it again... =>:-<

Reeving= frustration! At least for me in cookie crawlers.

My 1600 is still in the box since last year. Smile

It's a diecast thing.You couldn't understand!

I actually did mine recently and your diagrams were a God send! Once I figured it out, it only took an hour or so.

Thank you!

The other thing to make it easy to reve is put a piece of blank white paper behind it so you don't get lost in the mix.

That diagram pretty much explains it all right there. The more I study the diagram the easier it looks (looks can be deceiving)

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.





Thank you Victor Applause

Greetings All!

Just received my LR1600 last night and got right to work reeving the A-Frame. Though I managed to muck something up, these instructions make far more sense than the included ones, and am excited at the prospect of having a balanced draw on the A-Frame, without having to draw the entire length of rope through each pulley.

Anyone have any recommendations for lubricating the pulleys? I think some are rubbing excessively on my machine, and suspect it may be contributing to the issue I am having with reeving. I was thinking of sewing machine oil...

Also want to express my gratitude to those of you who continue to go out of their way to support us less-experienced folks (Victor, Paul R, and Ian in particular). Applause

For those who have successfully reeved this monster (or any other of similar complexity), I salute you! o7

Now to watch the clock tick away the work day so I can return home and master this magnificent beast!

P.S. Avoid the temptation to rest the A-Frame on the Erection cylinders while reeving... That was my first mistake d'oh!

WD40 works great. Need a tiny bit and it rolls fine.

Mammoet- Size does Matter.
