Introducing the Ronin Lift – the revolutionary NEW tool for Arborists
Climbing activities, such as ascending tall trees can be harmful to joints and muscles. The Ronin team has addressed this problem by designing an innovative climbing tool that allows tree climbers to access the tops of the trees with significantly reduced repetitive stress.
The Ronin Power Ascender was engineered by a team specialising in the rescue industry who recognised a need for professional Tree Workers, Arborists, Tree Managers & Urban Forestry Workers to have a better tool for their daily climbing & hauling activities.
The Ronin’s lightweight and rugged design makes it easier than ever to get up into the canopy. A max working load of 181 Kg allows the Ronin Power Ascender to get you and your gear up each tree with ease. A hot-swappable battery means you never run out of power while ascending or winching. Battery power keeps the Ronin quiet, environmentally friendly, and ready for all-day continuous use. No matter your challenge, the Ronin Lift is ready to make sure you complete tasks quicker and safer.
How it works:
The rope wraps around a capstan-style mechanism inside the device that then self-feeds the rope to load. A manual-tensioning knob adjusts rope tension to increase or decrease the device’s grip on the rope. The climber attaches to one of the two attachment points on the device and uses a secondary backup on the rope, such as an ASAP or mechanical rope grab.
By operating the variable-speed thumbwheel trigger, the device ascends the rope with the climber at a max rate of approx 0.50 metres per second. The Ronin Lift has an independent braking system and a speed-reduction gearbox designed to allow climbers to control the descent speed.
The Ronin Lift can ascend over 100 metres of rope in a single-line configuration with a maximum load of 180kg. It can lift up to 544kg when using a 3-to-1 mechanical advantage.
A braking mechanism acts as a primary safety feature, in that it is always activated while ascending and stopping. The brake can be manually opened for controlled descent. Some models have a power-reverse function that will assist in fully removing the rope from the device.
Best of all it is easy to operate, and the lightweight, durable construction makes it an easy go-to for regular use. The main benefit, though, is to the climber. The Ronin Lift can reduce repetitive stress injuries, which will greatly extend the longevity of a climber’s career.
