An ARB snatch block is an incredibly useful piece of recovery equipment that greatly increases the versatility of either a vehicle mounted or portable winch.
It enables you to retrieve loads that are double a winch’s capacity by reducing the load on the winch by half, and facilitates winching from varying angles when straight ahead isn’t the best option.
ARB has two models of snatch block available, the standard 7000kg, and the lightweight but heavy duty 9000kg. ARB snatch blocks feature side plates that sit snug against the pulley, eliminating the possibility of the winch cable becoming trapped in between. And the groove on the pulley itself tapers down to the centre, allowing for a variety of cable sizes to be used and ensuring the cable is seated securely, minimising lateral movement.
