LGH Adds Overhaul Balls to Inventory

Lifting Gear Hire has recently added a new item to its extensive inventory of lifting, rigging, pulling, and jacking equipment – Overhaul Balls. These are heavy steel balls that are used to provide ballast on the hook end of a crane hoist rope. Overhauls supply the downhaul weight that’s needed to counter bearing friction and winch-to-boom line weight. They can also be used in lieu of a winch depending on what best suits your application. Spilt Overhaul Balls are made up of two cast iron halves, which clamp to the line by means of bolts.

Also referred to as Headache Balls, Overhaul Balls are available for immediate rental from LGH’s warehouses and manufactured by Crosby in 2 distinct diameters – 7.12” and 9.19” or in weights of 50 and 100 lbs., respectively. They’re also offered by Gunnebo Johnson and available in 9.50” and 11.25” or in weights of 89 and 154 lbs., respectively.

Founded in 1990, Lifting Gear Hire (LGH) is the United States’ largest single organization devoted exclusively to the provision of lifting and moving equipment for rent and sale. LGH provides hoisting, pulling, jacking, rigging, material handling and safety equipment available for immediate and safe use.
