Heavy-duty lowering bollard of galvanized steel construction, with a serrated base for extra stability. Designed to be attached to the base of a tree, for dismantling and sectioning down stems. (For alternative bollard with rubber tree protectors, please check out our THLD2 bollard.) The THLD3 comes with two heavy-duty webbing ratchet straps, and the complete kit comes in a heavy-duty PVC carry bag. For use with a maximum 14mm diameter rope, this lowering device has been tested to a Maximum Breaking Strain of 50kN, giving it a safe working load of 10kN. Two tie-off points are provided at the end of the drum, with lugs to prevent the bights of the rope slipping over.
