Strongman Sheaves – Stronger Than Your Heaviest Load


• Strongman sheaves are custom designed to fit your exact requirements.

There is no need to modify existing equipment to make replacement sheaves fit, nor do you need to compromise new designs to fit some ‘catalog’ sheave that most likely is not stocked in any case.

In addition you get experienced sheave engineers processing your request and answering your inquiries.  Design help and recommendations are just a phone call or email away.


• Your Strongman sheaves are solid steel and will be virtually indestructible.

All sheaves up to 16”/400mm diameter are machined from solid 1045 steel round bar. 

Sheaves 14”/350mm to 16”/350mm have rope grooves hardened to 35-40 RC.  This is optional on smaller sheaves.

Sheaves over 16”/400mm diameter are machined from A572 GR50 Steel. These sheaves have rope grooves flame hardened to 40-45 RC

The result?  If your Strongman sheave is load tested to destruction, the wire rope breaks before the sheave is damaged.


 • You get the industry’s fastest delivery for custom sheaves.

Sheaves 12”/300mm and under are shipped in 2 to 3 weeks.  Larger sheaves and all hardened sheaves are shipped in 4 to 5 weeks.


  • You also get the industry’s fastest quotations for custom sheaves.

Most RFQs are answered with a formal quote in 4 hours or less.  Occasionally large sheaves take a bit longer to quote.
