If you’re dealing with tree rigging and limb removal, then you need to make sure you have a reliable sling. Luckily, if you’re looking for good slings, we’re proud to say we’ve got exactly what you need in our large selection of slings.
Here’s a taste of what you can find in our catalogue:
- Balancer, Whoopie sling—Composed of half inch Tenex, with average breaking strength of 13,000 lbs., this sling has eyes at both ends allowing the user to attach it to a rigging line and the other eye to the tip of a limb. This rigging balances the limb while lowering.
- TENEX Eye Slings—Have an extra long eye on one end that can be girth hitched onto a Port-a-Wrap or other hardware. Come in a variety of sizes with an average breaking strength from 13,000 to 44,500 lbs.
- Whoopie Slings—Allow you to attach to hardware without tying knots as they have a fixed eye and an adjustable eye. This sling is used to attach blocks or Port-a-Wraps because the ability to adjust the length minimizes slack in the system. Comes in a variety of sizes from ½” to 1” with average breaking strength from 880 to 3,025 lbs.
- Loopie Slings—Adjustable round slings that allow the user to rig without tying knots. These slings form a loop, which can be adjusted to the right size and girth. Can be used with different hardware. ½”to 1” sizes with average breaking strength from 1,760 to 5,800 lbs.
- Flat Nylon Slings—Eyes in both ends that are tapered and twisted to help position hardware correctly. They are built for heavy lifting. Come in 2” to 6” width, 3’ to 10’ length with working load limits from 12,800 to 32,600.
Endless Loop Slings—High strength slings from the load-bearing endless loop of fibers. Made from 100% polyester, flexible and super strong. Great for crane work or anchoring rope pullers or winches. Come in 4’ to 15’ length with a working load limit of 4,240 to 13,440.
We also carry 1” Nylon Slings and Spectra Runners, which are great for redirects and speed lines among other uses.
Pinnacle Arborist also carries spools of TENEX and TENEX TEC cut by the foot.
Caution: make sure you match up the strength of rope with the application you need it for. You don’t want to use a lightweight rope for moving extremely heavy objects. On the other hand, you might not need our heaviest duty rope if you are planning on light usage.
