Santa got me one. I unpacked it and put it on a tree today (just 3 feet up). The instructions that come with the tree say 8" (even though the website says 6").fishkrane said:I'm in the market for a new climber.the reviews I can find all seem good ,does anyone have or use one?I like it says you can go up a tree as small as six inches,which is good,not a lot of big trees where I'm at.
I ordered it right from the website, http://www.treewalkertreestands.com/slammer said:I wondered if anybody used this stand ,they look awsome do they sell them in pro shops or just from the company.what model did you buy?I sold my LW
The cable that wraps around the tree is encased in plastic, and that is not as quiet as the lone wolf belt if it scrapes against the tree (while climbing). If I take my time with it and do not scrape the tree bark, it is fine. Just something i did not have to be concerned with climbing on the lone wolf. I do plan on putting some type of moleskin / felt over the plastic to quiet it down.3D Hunter said:is it as quiet as the lonewolf's?
I think the viper is 9" - 20" diameter. treewalker site says 6 - 26", but the instructions I got said 8" - 26". Not sure if the 1" will make a difference to you.fishkrane said:I'm going to check one out ar the Harrisburg sportsman show,they will be out there I was told.as long as I can go up a tree smaller than my viper,I will buy one.
Were your top criteria comfy, LIGHT and safe? What order? I looked at timbertall and the only one rated for me is the Super Brute @ 17 lbs for $411. The treewalker is 17 lbs for $290 with a longer platform and the ability to go around trees with 2 more inches of diameter.BOOTOXEN said:I liked the tree walker but bought the timbertall. They had a real good show special at Harrisburg a few yrs ago. It's my go to portable stand. Comfy, LIGHT, safe.
