Port-A-Wrap XL – 601XN
Buck PORT-A-WRAPS are compact rope friction devices designed for lowering heavy objects from height in a controlled and predictable manner. The Buck Port-A-Wrap has been widely popular among the modern-day arborist, old school arborist would lower heavy wood by wrapping the lines around nearby trees causing damage to trees and often causing accidents. With the Buck Port-A-Wrap lowering heavy wood can be controlled and done at a much faster pace while also lowering the potential for an accident. The user-friendly design also makes attaching rigging line a breeze!
- Based off the original Buckingham Port-A-Wrap III, the Port-A-Wrap XL is bigger and stronger with the same great improvements.
- The 601XN maintains proper bend ratio on the lowering line allowing maximum strength and friction control.
- With a 7/8″ lowering rope capacity, the longer nickel plating over steel tube has ample room for wraps.
*Usually ships within 7 to 14 days.
Many of those who work on towers are now beginning to use the port-a-wrap as a cost-effective friction control device. By simply attaching the port-a-wrap to the base of a tower, you can use it to safely lower loads (like a set of bells) from an elevated location. The additional eye allows the user to attach a set of rigging blocks like the Buck Riggers or the Buck Side Swivels to raise loads prior to lowering them. Tie off/redirect cleats allow users to snub off a load. It also redirects the rope allowing the user to operate the Port-a-wrap without being underneath the load. Both the small (601N for 5/8” rope) and large (601LN for ¾” rope) have a 2000 pound working load limit.
