The Kevlar® core and thick rubber cover make the Y strop perfect for snow, sand and muddy conditions.

The mine-site bulldozer is the towing vehicle of choice in many open-cut mining operations, quarry and construction sites. With ripper assemblies commonly attached to bulldozers, towing gear has many challenges maintaining integrity and strength in a hostile environment. Specifically designed for use with bulldozer rippers, we adapted Andromeda’s 'B’ fittings for use in the towing version of the Black Snake and introduce the: BULLDOZER Y Strop.
The bearing (contact) zone of the ‘B’ fitting is typically marked in yellow paint and is the thickest part of the cast fitting. The ‘B’ fitting is fully welded. The BULLDOZER Y Strop is a specialised, heavy duty product and can be permanently attached to skid-mounted equipment for regular moves. The user should assess the suitability of this product and towing procedures when choosing to tow skid-mounted or similar equipment with bulldozer rippers.
