For heavy lifting work, this is the most efficient wire rope sling that meets all industrial and regulatory standards. This sling and the Gator-Max® sling are identical except the Gator-Laid® sling has metal sleeves for the splice connection. This is the product when a big lift but shorter sling is required. It has twelve parts of wire rope in the loop. The Gator-Laid® products were developed in conjunction with the offshore oil industry to provide the world’s best heavy lift wire rope slings. This sling has great flexibility.
