The Slingshot Kinetic Energy Rope line, much like any great invention, was developed for a specific need. We had several customers in logging, oil & gas as well municipalities reaching out to buy our Safe-T-Pull Truck Hitches but pairing them up with chains. As we all know from the horror stories, chains are made for a static load and not to extract any equipment under any circumstances, so we hit the drawing board to develop the best solution possible.
Slingshot’s Kinetic Recovery Tow Ropes are the tool to use when towing stuck vehicles. Utilize the kinetic energy of the tow vehicle and gain the momentum needed without cringe inducing jolts. Other towing equipment like chains or standard tow straps can transmit unnecessary, damaging impact forces to both vehicles if used with any sort of a running start.
Our Double Braid Nylon material provides up to 30% elongation during use, which translates into lower impact but higher energy transfer to the stuck vehicle. Whether you are off-roading in your Jeep, have a semi-truck buried in the snow or a combine harvester stuck in the field, the SlingShot Kinetic Energy Rope is the only rope for you!
