I have one and it is beefy. One of my friends owns a tree removal business and says it is the best snatchblock he has seen in 10 years. We compared it to his pile of snatchblocks and nothing came close to it and some had a rating of 25,000 pounds.

snatch blocks

I like my ARB snatch block with the greaseable pin. It's the strongest one for its size that I could find that's suitable for use with a heavier truck like my Unimog. Yes, even Unimogs have to be winched. :flipoff2:

Can anyone compare the Rockstomper snatch block to the ARB? If it's as strong or stronger, Scott's got a damn fine product on his hands.

Out of curiousity, what's the price on the RS snatch block?

Thanks!

What are the dimensions on that. There is nothing in the picture to get a scale. Thanks.

I have the ARB snatchblock:


Someone post a pic with another block or a hand in the pic, so I can get an idea of scale. :)

I got the RS one and it is beef. No camera on me for comparison.
It is 3/8" rated. Dont know if all the ARB's are only 5/16" or what.
Rockstompers for comarison is like 2 beer bottles side by side. Weight is 6 lbs. Best part is it is the same price as the lesser quality ones.

I didn't take a side-by-side with the Warn one... figured Warn hated me enough already. :)

Actually, it is fairly similar to the Warn block--the material around the anchor hole is wider, the bronze bushing in the pulley wheel is... well... there... (Warn just has a little paper-thin sleeve), the pivot pin is bigger by 1/16" (whoopee), etc. It's all little enough stuff that a pic that's wide-view enough to see both, won't show much, and close enough in to really see the difference, and it's tough to tell what you're looking at.

A friend has a Warn block though--if it's interesting enough, I can borrow his and take pics of both.
