Base-mounted winches, or tuggers, are a compact, versatile tool for many hoisting and pulling
operations. They are particularly useful in areas not accessible to mobile cranes or where there is
not enough headroom for a crane to operate. Figure 16 shows a tugger and snatch block
arrangement for hoisting. Make sure that the rope leaves the drum at a downward angle and that
the loose end is securely anchored.

Figure 16

The forces on snatch blocks and their anchorage points depend on the angle by which the direction
of pull is changed. The diagrams below indicate how snatch block loads vary with rope angle.

Wire rope used on tuggers should have an independent wire rope core to resist crushing as it is
compressed by successive layers of rope on the drum.
