They are snatch blocks for steel cable - not fiber rope. They can actually be used as a block and tackle by running a cable from a winch around one of the pulleys on the double block, then around the single block, and secure the bitter end of the cable to the thimble on the double block.

You actually have a mis-matched pair, as both of them should be double pulleys to rig it correctly.


Move the thimble and secure the bitter end of the cable to the single pulley, so you can utilize both sides of the double pulley.

It will be fairly easy to figure out just by experimenting a bit.

Those are not Snatch blocks. A snatch has the ability o open at one end to except the rope or cable use to double up you pulling power

Exactly, Walt! I have a couple of HD ones made for steel cable (wire rope) and I use them regularly in the woods when I cut a tree that leans in the wrong direction. By hooking low on another tree located in the direction I want the tree to fall I can pull the tree over and have me and the tractor out of harm's way.
Hooking low also gives the tractor better traction.
