Cable Conditioning Weight Bag

Routine cable conditioning* on our 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 and/or if minor or moderate bird-caging of the cable is observed. A 600-pound (272.16 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.
