X8 Mountable Compact Rope Trainer - MARPO KINETICS (X8-COMPACT) – The X8 Rope Trainer is a dynamic resistance rope training device designed to be mounted to concrete walls or CrossFit rigs and racks. Because it is mountable, the X8 rope training machine remains up and out of the way of other equipment while not in use. The X8 rope machine is superior to old school climbing ropes, i.e. manila climbing ropes, in that it only requires a ceiling height of about 8’ and the magnetic resistance load ranges from between 2-165 lbs. making rope exercise manageable for all ages and fitness levels. Optional auxiliary pulleys allow the user to quickly change between vertical, diagonal and horizontal pulling and pushing. The Marpo X8 excels in fire departments, schools, military training facilities and commercial gyms. 


In this modular design system, the X8 TOWER allows for installation of up to four X8 Rope Training units per tower. 
Its compact design form makes it very easy to fit in a small foot print area and it makes for a perfect group training tool. 

The X8 TOWER allows for multi-direction rope workouts through the use of AUXILIARY PULLEYS.

    Proper cleaning will help ensure the life of your product. The following parts should be cleaned daily:

    Upholstery; using a solution of mild soap and water. Rope; using rubbing (medical) alcohol on a cloth wipe down the rope to remove hand oil and grease.

    Daily Part Inspection

    Inspect the following parts daily for wear or damage:

    Cables; inspect for wear or damage and proper tension (should not exceed 3/4" deflection). Pay close attention at bends and attachments points.

    Hardware; inspect for looseness. Tighten as required using the proper tools.

    Frames; inspect for wear or damage.

    Rope; inspect for any snags, tears or fraying, cracks in the end caps or wear of the connecting chain links where the two link overlap.

    Routine Inspection and Maintenance

    The following maintenance should be performed approximately once a week: 

    • Visually inspect all hardware for loosening, tampering or wear. 
    • Check jam nut on all locations. 

    Once a month open the system covers and inspect:

    All gears and sprockets to make sure they have no play on the axis. For this, check each connecting screw or set screw with the proper Allen wrench or screwdriver. If a screw or set screw is found loose remove one at a time, add LocTite to the treads and tighten back in place. Check the two metal wings attached to the break mechanism and ensure they are not bending or distorting in any way. Look for signs of metal fatigue or small cracks. If any of this is observed STOP using the unit and contact Marpo Kinetics for replacement parts.

    Note: Use polishing compound (such as car wax) to clean and remove scuffs from powder-coated surfaces as necessary.

    Important Reminders

    DO NOT use abrasive or highly alkaline cleaners on the plastic or rubber components, or on the rope.

    Never scrape plastic components with razor blades or other sharp instruments.

    Benzene, gasoline, acetone or carbon tetrachloride should never be used on the plastic or rubber components, or on the rope.

    Removal of Paint, Marking Pen, Labels

    Butyl cellosolve works well for removal of paints and inks. Labels, stickers, and other adhesives may be removed using kerosene. When the solvent will not penetrate sticker material apply heat (hair dryer) to soften the adhesive and promote removal. Be sure to use any solvents according to directions. GASOLINE SHOULD NOT BE USED.
