Sit down tree climber
The platform consists of two parts that fit around the trunk of the tree. The operator starts by stepping onto the platform of the lower unit, and standing up with the top part, which is raised to waist level. He then sits down on the top part and raises up the lower part as high as he can with his feet. Then he stands up on the lower part and raises the top part again, repeating the process.
Once in the air, the unit provides a solid platform to work from, eliminating the need to use ladders or a crane. One person can carry the lightweight aluminum unit in one hand. Quickly adjusts to trees up to 28 in. in dia. Sells for $570.
