This article presents information about the XLT4 high-capacity crane rope. This high-capacity crane rope features single-layer construction that produces near zero torque under load. It may be used with a swivel and operated in hoisting applications. The XLT4 also features the manufacturer's exclusive PowerSteel Technology, which double-packs more high-tensile steel wire into the rope's diameter. It is available from Wire Rope Corp. of America.
