Living in Montana it is often hard to find specialty tools that make jobs easier. The ability to find what I needed from Westech and have it delivered to my door allowed me to get to work with the tools I need.

Good Value on Logging Choker
January 11, 2019
We are doing thinning and fuel reduction projects and these chokers work well for these projects. They are light and easy to handle.
Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Patrick. Please be advised that we offer 15ft and 20ft versions of this choker on our site as well. You can see all available sizes at this link.
ProsThe choker is light and works great with the smaller logs.
ConsThese chokers could be about two feet longer, I think this length is the longest that can be ordered without doing a special order.

No Kinking!!!
November 17, 2018
This product is great for choking almost anything for lifting and pulling. We all know a kink, or twist in our wire ropes is bad business. This product is perfect, it grips harder the harder you lift, without any damage to the choker. Within lifting limits. Slides easily under a tree trunk much better than chains. Iron Workers prefer this for lifting bundles of rebar. I spray mine with chain and cable lube, it penetrates the wire easily then thickens after being exposed to air. Your choker will last a lifetime time if you take good care of it. I use this to lift and drag tree trunks and bundles of heavy branches. I can't say enough about this particular system. Great product.
Merchant Response:So glad the choker is meeting your expectations Adam! We appreciate your business!
ProsGreat for lifting bundles of heavy branches, lumber & tree trunks. Non kinking & easy to slide under material being lifted.
ConsI can't think of one!!!
