GRCS anygood

Recommended Posts

First time I used one was in Norway with Mike, I've used most devices over the years and the GRCS, is without doubt the best. By a long way. Does completely change the way you look at rigging.

Over all yeah.

 

IF you were spanging big lumps from single stem trees all day long,then a Hobbs is for you.

 

But for everywere else outside the Pacific North West then GRCS.It is truly one of those things that you wish you had bought a long time ago.

 

You get a static Bollard as well as the Winch with a GRCS,so its win/win.

So it can do what a Hobbs does and more?

Good info Mike, thanks, I have a couple of big takedowns coming up and I have used Hobbs in the past and it was great but I'm trying to see the best option for my money as I only want to spend once.

You really can't go wrong with a GRCS mate.They would sell alot more of them if it was possible to demo them for a week before pulling the trigger on one.Not so many people have them so industry exposure is pretty minimal considering the productivity gain.

 

A bit like imagine attempting to describe the benefits of a Wood Chipper to a man who had Bashed down Tranist loads all his life.Then expecting him to cough up for one.

You wont regret getting one at all that is for sure, it will more than earn its price tag in a few big takedowns :thumbup1:

I personally use 16mm and that works perfect but you can use what size you need for the job in hand.
