Arborist Lowering Devices

Using a friction management device to lower limbs or trunk wood extends the life of your rigging ropes, protects the tree, and allows for safer, more efficient removal of wood. We carry a number of lowering devices- from the widely used Port-a-Wrap to the impressive Good Rigging Control system which allows for lifting of loads in addition to lowering. A suitable lowering device can be found for your rigging operation from our wide selection below. If you need any assistance choosing the arborist lowering device that's right for you, please contact WesSpur online and we will be happy to help.
