Good Rigging Control System (GRCS)


Developed by arborist Greg Good, the GRCS is the ultimate lifting/lowering device. The GRCS uses a powerful Harken winch that features a unique 2-speed gearing system, which can give the operator a 44:1 lifting ratio. This allows for both hand cranking or use of an electric drill that allows for one man to easily handle most jobs. With a maximum lift capacity of 320 lbs., this winch can handle most pole top equipment. The winch system is detachable, so mounting the bracket on a pole is a much easier task.
