The Good Rigging Control System is the ultimate tool for lowering heavy loads in a safe and controlled fashion. Developed by Greg Good of Wisconsin, the GRCS has two settings, providing a 44:1 and a 22:1 mechanical advantage, and two specialized spools: one for lowering and one for lifting. It has a dead lift rating of 3,000 lbs., able to handle the heaviest sections of timber. You can take 5 full wraps with a 3/4" rope.
The GRCS Device attaches firmly to tree trunk. The unit features a winch that separates from the mount for easy setup. The tree mount is hinged to provide secure attachment to a wide range of stem diameters. Rubber feet on the tree mount protect the trunk of trees being pruned and allow the winch to be mounted on a tree not being removed. The rope brake is interchangeable and made from aluminum to better dissipate friction heat. Multiple fair leads position the rope on the winch drum to keep operation tangle free. The 2 speed, self-tailing winch allows a single ground person to lift, lower, and lock off tremendous loads quickly, safely, and without tying knots.
