Samson Introduces PantherTM Recovery Tow Sling
 
 
Ferndale, WA – January 25, 2018 – Samson, worldwide leader in high-performance synthetic rope and market leader in mining and utility applications, is pleased to announce the introduction of Panther, a recovery tow sling designed for mining and vehicle recovery operations.    
 
Panther is a lightweight, high-strength, low-stretch recovery tow sling that is specifically engineered for reliability and safety. Made of Dyneema® SK78, and covered with Dyneema® HMPE (high-modulus polyethylene) chafe protection, it’s flexible and provides the ease of handling found in a single-leg tow sling with superior abrasion resistance. Panther can handle loads from 20MT to 700MT, and is available in various lengths. Previously in limited distribution, Panther is now available through Samson’s normal distribution channels.  
 
According to Adrian Eyre, Director of Sales for Samson, “Synthetic rope slings bring something to the mining industry not seen with steel wire or chain, namely – improved safety.  They’re easier to handle, because of their light weight and flexibility, and the reduced risk of injury due to recoil or sparking incidents is key.”
 
Samson Marketing Strategy Manager Michelle Jarvis says: ‘We’re very excited to launch this product to the mining and utility industries worldwide. Panther is another step in Samson’s long history of increasing safety and improving efficiency with the use of synthetic rope to replace steel wire.”  
 
Panther, like all Samson products, is backed by the Samson Advantage - supported by researchers, developers, experienced distributors and technically knowledgeable sales teams, Samson products continue to outperform in the marketplace.
