Description

Details

The SherrillTree Portawrap is a lightweight and compact rope friction device designed for lowering heavy wood in a controlled manner. Designed by arborists Scott Prophett and Norm Hall in the early 90s and first introduced and manufactured exclusively by SherrillTree, the Portawrap has been proven a highly dependable and effective tool in sparing properties the damage inflicted by free-falling tree parts.

In the past, a ground worker’s main option for rope-controlling heavy wood was to wrap the line’s running end around a nearby tree, often candy-striping the “wrap tree” from bark-scorching surface friction. But now, in the time it once took to coil up a lowering line and walk it around the next candy cane-to-be, the modern arborist can have a Portawrap locked and loaded for multiple lowering tasks. Quickly wrapped and unwrapped between loads, the Portawrap turns a once precarious tango among fallen brush and tree parts into a smooth-flowing waltz in a small, easily maintained space. And unlike the ever-changing tree trunk surface, the Portawrap presents predictable and unchanging friction to ropes, allowing the groundsman to concentrate strictly on the dynamics of the activity above.

The SherrillTree Portawrap has significant corrosion resistance and tree protection. Our RUST-PROOF stainless-steel Portawrap will stand up to the worst heat, salt and humidity that a coastal company can throw at it. The main tube on the SherrillTree Portawrap is seamless, maximizing its strength-to-weight ratio. Seamless tubing is ideal for more stressful applications requiring higher quality, increased mechanical properties, uniformity and strength. SherrillTree has all edges on the main tube and solid posts chamfered to eliminate any sharp edges.

Also included is a Scott Prophett special feature—a tree-protecting cap that prevents the gouging and disfiguration of the tree that can occur with other similar devices that are available in today's market. If you want BEST rope friction device money can buy, get a Portawrap from SherrillTree. "Take it from me, Scott Prophett, Its the Real Deal".

Large Stainless Steel SherrillTree Portawrap is for lines up to 3/4", weighs 7 1/4 lbs. Strength and rope specs are labeled directly on the SherrillTree Portawrap

The control you have doing tree work is unmistakably unbeatable! So many copies out there but this is the real deal for rigging operations.

Weld a stainless cap and it would be perfect. Our hasn't popped off yet but will with that one "special" load from above.

Great product that makes tree work easier! Review by Reggie

I have no idea how I did trees without the Portawrap. It is simple and highly effective. My only caution is don't let the simplicity lull you to complacency and make sure you train new users. This device provides so much friction they can easily lock down a top or block you intended to let run. That can be an unpleasant surprise/surge for a climber. Take 2 minutes to train a newby and they will act like an experienced ropeman with the aid of a portawrap. Thanks Sherrilltree for a great product! (Posted on 10/13/2016)

This device was a big upgrade from tree wraps. I liked it better than the nickel plated version. I haven't manage to wear it out or break it which speaks volumes for the value over time. My go to for a flexible, floating attachment point using multiple anchors.

I bought the large version for tree work, but think a small lightweight aluminum version would be great as a rappel device. Like the notion of multiple wraps to control descent and larger friction area to spread out heat. and the ears help control the loose end. (Posted on 7/14/2015)

I routinely lower 1500 lb tops and logs by myself with complete control ! No way I could do everything on the ground by myself without it. Being able to lock off the load and cut limbs so everything lays over the way you want is so helpful by yourself. The predictable friction allows me to not shake my boss so bad by knowing how things will run in advance. If used with blocks you will get years out of rigging lines instead of months !

Could be better Review by Gerasimek Tree

If you lower limbs you should own a lowering device. The portawrap (or any lowering device) enables a single person to lower massive weight easily without damage to the rope. If the Portawrap had an upper anchor point, like the Stein version, I'd have given it 5 stars. Regardless, it's a cheap way to make rigging safer. (Posted on 12/16/2013)

I brought my personal porta wrap in to work with me and introuced it to line work we used it for letting down strings of insulators from transmission line poles that weighed in excess of 500 lbs. When the rest of the lineman saw what we were using they wanted one for there truck. We will be ordering some more and training them how to use the wrap. (Posted on 12/26/2012)

An amazing tree device. A must have product for anyone serious about efficiency and safety. Eliminates the need for two people on the end of a rope and prevents rope burns from overloading what the groundsmen can handle. I would not do tree work without it. It will make a believer out of you on the first cut. By far the most amazing product of its kind. (Posted on 11/28/2012)

SherrillTree Portawrap - 152,800-lb Amsteel - 0 <BR> Dear SherrillTree,It is our pleasure to report that during a normal day of log clearing exercise in the hills of WV for new transmission towers, your stainless steel Portawrap survived a brutal schedule while being attached to our John Deere 650 dozer, surviving the failure of at least one 52,800-lb tensile Amsteel rope. The Portawrap took a lickin' but keeps on tickin'. (Posted on 9/14/2011)
