Which Harkie ropes are compatible with this product?

This lowering device is designed to work with ropes up to 13mm, meaning that our 13mm HeftyFlex rigging rope is an ideal choice.

What is the purpose of a flying capstan?

It’s a friction device that’s used to brake the movement of the rigging rope, allowing the groundsman to fully control the descent of the cut timber to the ground.

How much weight can it safely handle?

With a safe working load of 1,000 kg, our flying capstan can handle sections of timber weighing up to a tonne.

I have had my Harkie Smock for seven years. Worn every wet day and it has stood up to all the abuse of arb that I have thrown at it and it is still fully waterproof.
