The Good Rigging Control System created by Greg Good (GRCS for short) is an essential tool for any professional tree crew working with large timber. When using the winch, the GRCS helps with lifting downed limbs and trunk sections – especially helpful on storm cleanup jobs – thanks to the Harken winch adding serious lifting power to your crew. The GRCS is the ultimate lowering tool for bringing down heavy wood with control, and shines when working on a site which must be preserved from damage. In 2012, the GRCS was updated with an improved winch, the Harken 46 Arborist. It has a taller drum, allowing for a full 5 wraps with a 3/4? lowering line. The self-tailer has been changed to accommodate the larger diameter ropes used in our industry. The new version was found to be just as tough and that it provides even more pulling power! The GRCS is an equipment investment which quickly pays for itself, allowing a crew to tackle jobs they might otherwise need a crane for, thanks to its lifting power.
