Working Load Limit

Working Load Limit (WLL) of the interchangeable components refers to the permissible load of these parts (e.g. shackles, hooks, chains, links etc.) without regard to the hoist load and/or dead load coefficient. It should be noted that the Working Load Limit (WLL) of an interchangeable component is not normally identical the Safe Working Load (SWL)

of the lifting appliance, as the components have to be dimensioned in accordance with the local occurring forces. These forces are indicated in the rigging plans.
