Securing cargo on a flatbed trailer used to be a time-consuming and physically demanding task. Ratchet chain binders have been used for chain securement since the early 1900s, require manual tensioning, and cannot prevent over-tightening or under-tightening cargo chains. This can lead to cargo chains becoming loose during transport, which is dangerous and constitutes load checks. Per DOT regulations, “cargo securement inspections are required within the first 50 miles after loading, and every 3 hours, 150 miles or at duty change, whichever comes first.”
Many attempts have been made to “re-invent the wheel” with the creation of an automatic chain binder, but none have solved the age-old question of how tight is right. While chain binder alternatives exist, there haven’t been many advances made to improve safe, fast, and easy cargo securement for truck drivers until now.
Enter the REVOLOK 6600, a professional flatbed load & cargo securement tool designed to use as a steel coil securement for the heavy, specialized cargo transportation market. The REVOLOK 6600 is a game-changer in the industry, as it can be easily and effortlessly used with a drill and mini torque multiplier to bring a 3/8 grade 70 chain under tension. Unlike the automatic chain binder, REVOLOK 6600 has a radial clutch, which allows for the accurate securement of cargo. This reduces securement time and eliminates the need for guesswork, ensuring that cargo is securely tied down every time.
The REVOLOK 6600 is the best alternative to ratchet chain binders, including drill-powered chain binders among flatbed trucking companies using 3/8 G70 chain tie-downs. It offers many advantages, such as increased driver satisfaction, improved recruitment & retention, provides easy to use and balanced steel coil securement, increased productivity, and higher earning potential. Using this automatic chain binder alternative can also reduce load securement time by up to 70%, load check time per DOT regulations, worker’s compensation costs, new driver cargo securement training time, equipment damage, and transportation fines.
In addition to its impressive features and benefits, the REVOLOK 6600 is also proudly made in the USA. It has a 4:1 design factor of 6600lbs WLL (working load limit) & 24,600lbs MBS (minimum break strength). With all these benefits, it’s no wonder that the REVOLOK 6600 is quickly becoming the go-to tool for flatbed load & cargo securement in the heavy and specialized cargo transportation market. So why settle for an outdated and tedious automatic chain binder when you can upgrade to the REVOLOK 6600 and revolutionize your load & cargo’s steel coil securement today?
