Hi Friend,

Bull Rigging: What is that?

What in the world is Bull Rigging? Those of us not familiar with the term might be picturing grabbing a hold of a rigging configuration by the shackle and hanging on for an eight second ride. As fun as that sounds, it is not Bull Rigging. In short, Bull Rigging is the term used to describe a method or system of rigging commonly used where a crane (mobile/overhead) cannot gain access. Bull Rigging is often referred to as drifting, "tarzaning," or just simply hand rigging. It is often used in concert with other rigging activities such as transferring a load from a structure to a crane hook or vice-versa.
