PowerFlex

  • Highest resistance to drum crushing 
  • Highest strength
PowerFlex

Now lift logs with power you never thought possible.

Lift more. Reach farther. Work longer. All with a smaller-diameter logging rope that resists drum crushing and spools better. PowerFlex is a dual-compacted high-density rope that delivers impressive strength in high-lead and skyline logging applications.

Known as “double-swaged” in the industry, PowerFlex is compacted not once, but twice, to yield excellent strength for virtually all your logging applications. By using this compact, high-strength rope, you can improve your reach to maximize efficiency, no matter what your logging conditions. No other logging rope offers you more.

With greater resistance to stretch, PowerFlex keeps its structural integrity and size to add longer service life to your logging wire rope. That means fewer rope change-outs, less equipment downtime and savings in labor and operating costs.

With the smooth outer surface of PowerFlex, you’ll profit from less rope wear and line burning as well as increased service life from your sheaves and drums. When wear does eventually occur, it’s on the outside of the rope to make visual inspection easy.
