Product Description


The first, original and authentic lowering device since 1980, the Hobbs has been improved and extensively re-designed resulting in the H-2 version. Featuring solid mounting, smooth and precise rope control in addition to increased lifting and pulling capabilities. The reconfigured capstan spool is manufactured using A-356 aluminium and T-6 hardened and has 3/4 inch thick wall, designed for high impact loading, wear resistance and heat dissipation. The front and rear of the spool rotate on a 1-1/2 inch solid steel shaft and are supported by massive, maintenance-free oil-impregnated bushings. *The design is simple, reliable and capable of impressive pulling and lifting power, offering a 16:1 mechanical advantage that can develop over 3000 lbs of pulling force and is rated to 1000 lbs. An extremely versatile piece of equipment, the H-2 allows you to remove unwanted rope slack, lift limbs and perform other pulling and lifting tasks. *The unique, angled frame can be mounted in 3 possible configurations to suit the task at hand. Standard mounting is suitable for most rigging applications, 3 mounted spikes cut aggressively into the tree as a strap is tightened for increased holding strength (medium to heavy rigging, WLL. 2000 lbs.). Preservation mounting is perfect for maintenance pruning where large limbs are required to be moved without damaging the tree. A hinged guard prevents the mounted spikes inserting into the tree and a hinged heavy-duty rubber pad offers extra protection (light to medium rigging, WLL. 1000 lbs.). Finally, cut-in mounting is used when maximum mounting strength is needed, a notch is cut into the tree and the top frame plate is placed beneath it (heavy to high impact rigging, WLL. 3000lbs.).
