When removing large limbs or whole trees having the right equipment is essential. At arb elite we use a range of equipment to remove large limbs, main stems and whole trees. Using a device known as a portawrap it makes it possible for one person to hold and lower up to 2 tonne in one go.
The portawrap is secured to the base of the tree, once secure the lowering rope is wrapped around it (after being secured to the limb you are removing). The portawap works on friction, the more wraps of the rope on the portawrap the more weight you can lower. Using this device means large sections of a tree can be removed safely and securely even in situations when phone cables, power cables or other obstacles are involved.
If you look in our gallery you can see images of a portawrap in use.
