Hobbs H-2 Lowering Device

SKU
21195
The Hobbs lowering device was first designed and manufactured in 1980 by Ed Hobbs. Tried and true, the device has been improved and re-designed over the years by Ken Johnsont. The latest version is the H-2. This device is designed for lowering lines from 1/2" to 3/4" in diameter and has a working load limit up to 3,000 lbs. The H-2 offers smooth and precise rope control and a lifting capacity of 1,000 lbs. The heart of the device is the aluminum spool, which is designed for extreme impact loading, wear resistance and heat dissipation. It's mounted on a 1-1/2" solid steel shaft, with oil impregnated bushings for years of use. The H-2 comes complete with a 20' mounting strap (fits trees up to 6' in diameter), winch bar and detailed graphics explaining proper usage, ratings, warnings and safe operations. Weighs 58 lbs.

CAPSTAN SPOOL FEATURES
The reconfigured spool is cast from hardened T-6 aluminum. With a 3/4" thick wall structure, the H-2 is designed for extreme impact loading, wear resistance and heat dissipation. Massive, maintenance-free, oil-impregnated bushings support the front and rear of the spool, which rotates on a solid steel 1-1/2" shaft.
LIFTING FEATURES
Using the winch bar that is supplied with the H-2 to rotate the spool, the device uses a proven, strong and mechanically simple ratchet and pawl mechanism to operate in the same manner as a "come-a-long" to develop lifting and pulling power. With a 16:1 ratio the H-2 can develop over 3,000 lbs. of pulling force and is rated to lift 1,000 lbs. The H-2 increases its versatility by being able to remove rope slack, lift limbs and perform other pulling and lifting tasks.
FRAME FEATURES
The unique, angled frame may be mounted in 3 separate configurations to suit the rigging task:
1. Preservation Mounting - For maintenance pruning when large limbs are removed and the tree is preserved. A hinged guard prevents spike insertion and a hinged heavy-duty rubber pad provides additional protection to the trunk. 1,000 lbs. Working Load Limit (WLL).
2. Standard Mounting - 3 side spikes aggressively cut into the tree for increased holding strength. 2,000 lbs. WLL
3. Cut-in Mounting - A notch is cut into the tree and the top frame plate is placed beneath it when high impact loading is anticipated e.g.: butt hitching trunk wood. 3,000 lbs. WLL.
OTHER FEATURES
A "rope captured" fairlead permits a wide range of movement without fear of rolling wraps off of the spool. A built-in entry hook guides the lowering line onto the spool. Side hooks let the operator safely tie-off the load line when desired.
The H-2 comes complete with a 20 foot mounting strap, winch bar and detailed graphic labels explaining proper usage, ratings, warnings and safe operation. The H-2 weighs 58 lbs.
