First up is the load limit, which sits at 5,430kg for the mid-range 1770 steel example and reaches 6,013kg in its 1960 counterpart.
The lower breaking force factor that defines the entire 6x12 fibre core range. Along with the increased susceptibility to crushing damage lifting is not recommended as a use for this 12mm rope.
