Breaking Strength: 201,000 lbs.

Drive into some quicksand? This diameter size is best utilized in.......big machines. Why does this beat traditional flat webbing straps?

Yankum Ropes delivers extra linear force and added kinetic energy that give you the power of momentum. This rope was designed for professionals but made to serve anyone who needs an extra tug. This rope was built for machines from Combines to Military Tanks buried door deep. If the tank is stuck, this is your rope. It’s built to stretch and literally handle TONS of weight.

This Mil-Spec quality product is made out of the best Double Braided rope. We use our “Code Red” Polymeric coating to protect against UV, water and abrasion as well as dip the eyes in a thick, protective rubber coating to ensure extended life where it matters most. Yankum Ropes are not towing ropes. They are designed for recovery.

Remember to pair the recovery rope with the recovery vehicle, NOT the stuck vehicle.

What size rope do I need?

Ropes are rated based on the weight of the vehicle doing the recovery, not the vehicle that's stuck. Taking your combine to the rescue? You need this 2 1/2" rope. 

What length should I get?

The rope length just depends on the user, the terrain, and the vehicles using the ropes. We recommend a 20' where space is limited. And a 30' rope for wide open worksites and fields.

What is the black velcro piece that came with the rope?

The chafe sleeve. It's 5 feet of polyurethane coated ballistic nylon with velcro on each side. It's a protective sleeve designed to slide up and down the rope as needed to protect the rope from abrasive obstacles.

What is the rope rated for?

The ropes have a 'Minimum Breaking Strength' (MBS). You then use a 'Factor of Safety'(FOS) to determine your 'Working Load Limit' (WLL). Your FOS is typically somewhere between 3 and 5, so either a 3:1, 4:1, or 5:1. You will find your working load limit by dividing the MBS by the FOS. Example:

      • 201,000 / 3 = 67,000
      • 201,000 / 4 = 50,250
      • 201,000 / 5 = 40,200

What is the proper way to store the rope?

Yankum Ropes are designed to handle a lot of tough situations, and taking good care of your rope when not in use will prolong the life of the rope. It is recommended to store your rope out of the elements and away from harsh chemicals. 

How fast should I go when performing a recovery with a kinetic rope?

Start your recovery with a very slow pull, then move to kinetic pulls. Increase speed gradually until the stuck vehicle is free, but do not exceed 5 mph. If you've reached 5 mph and the stuck vehicle hasn't moved, rethink a different way to recover. Stay safe!

    Why Kinetic Ropes

    Chains and cables can make for very dangerous recoveries when it comes to heavy equipment. Yankum Ropes, however can stretch up to 30% longer when being used. This allows you to get a running start during a recovery, which couples momentum and mass to free the stuck vehicle. Without a Yankum Rope you rely solely on mass and traction, which often times, both are limited.

    Best Suited for

    • Class 8 Vehicles up to 67k lbs
    • Large Tractors
    • Dump Truck
    • Loader

    Let's get back to work

    Whether it is the farm or the work site, when a piece of equipment is stuck, it can shut down the whole operation. A Yankum Rope has proven itself as the most effective and efficient way to get unstuck and get things moving again.
