Cable Conditioning Weight Bag

Routine cable conditioning* on Goodrich rescue hoists helps increase the life of the cable. Cable conditioning should be performed under the following conditions, unless noted otherwise in the hoist’s specific Component Maintenance Manual (CMM): After installation of a new cable After accumulating 30 or more cycles under a hook load of 50 pounds (23 kg) or less If minor or moderate bird-caging of the cable is observed A 550-pound (250 kg) capacity waterfilled weight bag is available for cable conditioning on rescue hoists. The weight bag is a portable, efficient, safe and cost effective way of providing a standard test load for rescue hoist cable conditioning and maintenance.
