Python® LIFT non-rotating rope is recommended for Manitowoc Crane Model 777, 888, 999, 21000 and 2250 MAX-ER 2000
     
Python® Wire Rope Selection
     
  Python® Construct-6

High strength 6-strand rope for applications which require a crush resistant rope to be used on multiple layer winding systems. Because constructional stretch is near zero it can be used where a 'pre-stretched' rope would be required.
 
  Python® Super 8R

Super-8R is the next step up from regular 8x36 wire rope for overhead cranes with the ability to operate with fleet angles up to 4°. The 8-strand construction provides an excellent combination of flexibility and performance.
 
  Python® Super 8C

Super 8C is a classic 'upgrade' rope for all overhead crane types for increased rope service life performance while maintaining the ability to operate with fleet angles up to 4°. The 8-strand construction provides an excellent combination of flexibility, fatigue life and abrasion resistance.
This rope is also the idea choice for container- and port cranes. We can provide this rope in 'dual-tensile strength' by which the outer strand wires are made from higher fatigue resistant steel.
 
  Python® Super 8V

Super 8V is an upgrade rope for all overhead crane types which require a stronger rope to increase the crane capacity while maintaining the ability to operate with fleet angles of up to 4°. The 8-strand construction provides an excellent combination of flexibility and abrasion resistance. Also used in looping- or accumulator tower applications.
 
  Python® Multi

Developed for maximum performance on overhead cranes. This rope features a plastic coated core for extended fatigue life performance and permanent core lubrication. Python® Multi is spin resistant to reduce block twisting on overhead cranes. Recommended for looping- or accumulator tower applications.
 
  Python® Power-9

All steel high strength type for overhead cranes. This rope is swage compacted to enhance abrasion characteristic and to reduce sheave- and drum wear. Up to 40% strength increase over standard 6-strand constructions.
 
  Python® Ultra

Ultra high strength type mainly used as high fatigue resistant rope for engineered cable assemblies. Up to 55% strength increase over standard 6-strand constructions. Sensitive to introduced rotation so call before you select this rope for overhead crane applications.
 
  Python® Compac 18 rotation resistant

Same design geometry as 19x7 but due to a larger number of individual wires it is more flexible. The rope is strand compacted to provide for better drum spooling and less mechanical interlocking at the cross-over points. Recommended as standard rope type for Grove-, Terex-, National-, Century- and other US made truck- and mobile cranes. Python® Compac 18 is a rotation resistant rope and should only be used where these demands are low or moderate. NOT to be used in high cycle- high fatigue applications and NOT to be used with a swivel.
 
  Python® Compac 35 non-rotating

Recommended to be used on tower- and european type mobile cranes. Available in left- and right hand lay as well as in regular- and lang's lay constructions. Recommended to be used in single line applications. ALLOWED to be used with a swivel.
 
  Python® Hoist non-rotating plastic coated core

Medium strength, high fatigue resistant non-rotating type. Compacting increases strength and sheave contact area. The plastic coated core increases fatigue life and prevents premature inner wire breaks as well as providing for permanent core lubrication. ALLOWED to be used with a swivel.
Popular as ship crane main hoist rope.
 
  Python® Lift non-rotating compacted

High strength super flexible true non-rotating rope. Oval outer strands provide for excellent sheave and drum contact area. Lift has very successfully been used in multiple drum layer applications. Needs special attention during installation. ALLOWED to be used with a swivel.
Used on many Manitowoc cranes.
