Have a question about this product?



I bought this in the spring of last year thinking it could be handy on certain jobs. After using it a few times the whole crew wondered how we managed without it for so many years. I bought the ratcheting unit and we used it to lift a 20foot broken branch off a service drop, stood the branch straight up then cut the butt off and lowered it down. The only thing I have found that I didn't like about it is there is no release accessible for the drum.


i have been climbing for 17 years,this device turned my roping around,with my pulleys a good rope with this device and a skilled topper jobs move smooth an faster i was able to make life on the ground easer for my ground guys it also took less people to run ropes,ths is a heavy block but for the price very awsome
