NEW RescueHauler rope controller is a simple and intuitive rescue device optimised for rescue and lifting / lowering operations.

  • Simple – Single cam design provides precision control when lowering
  • Safe – The dual safety braking function increases reliability and safety
  • Tough – Designed for extended use in aggressive environments

The RescueHauler has an auto-locking function when the handle is released and a progressive secondary brake if the handle is pulled sharply in panic. This mechanism is typically more intuitive for users, than devices that trip out and require resetting.

Stainless steel cam design provides precision control when lowering, giving safe predictable descent and provides a high degree of corrosion and wear resistance.  The wear indicator on the cam surface shows when device should be ultimately retired from use.

Choice of tail rope positions for different uses i.e. in-line (over stainless braking surface) reduces rope twist on long descents and increases device longevity on dirty rope or over front plate similar to other commonly used devices.

Handle has specific indexing to ensure it can be perfectly positioned for feeding rope out and to allow locking of the handle for efficient lifting and hauling operations.

For hauling and lifting operations, the slide catch on the body locks the handle in the hauling position, eliminating accidentally release. It is compatible with a wide range of systems to generate mechanical advantage e.g.  Hurricane, Vantage rescue pulley

Mechanism is fully accessible for inspection, cleaning and service. Less reliant on small moving parts than other similar devices. Allows ease of use in more aggressive work environments (slopes, dirty, grit and muddy ropes for example).

Has enhanced mis-threading protection, cam locks if the device is threaded backwards in lowering mode.

Genuine 2 person 200kg load rating, with no extra friction components required. Single user rating of 20kg – 150kg.

Rope diameter: 10.5 – 11mm
