Rated: Excellent Review by: Saw Dust Gang Member

“I'm a noob, but the staff has very helpful with answers to my questions. They're exceptionally easy to work with and very customer friendly. The climbing kit components are all top notch and are of high quality. I have five dead ash tees. I bought the kit to remove some branches first before felling the trees. Otherwise if left on the tree they could damage other trees/bushes on the property on the way down. As a noob to be a bit safer I also bought a set of spurs and a friction saver. Oh, and to save a lot of time and to reach higher branches, a big shot launcher. Everything has worked great. ”

“This kit is great for us beginners. Within an hour we were off the ground enjoying our new hobby.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Al

“We ordered this kit for some additional tree work we were doing on our property and quite frankly we should have bought it sooner. After spending dollars elsewhere for equipment that really wasn't suited for the job we bought this one...WOW! It really is a complete tree kit all you need is your PPE and a saw! The best thing was that if an item in the kit needs to be upgraded just call WesSpur before you order and they will swap it out for you - no problem. Have to agree with the first review for simplicity and price this is quite a bargain.”

Rated: Excellent Review by: Arboristnoob

“While I have not purchased this kit yet, I have looked up each contained item seperately. I've done the math, and this kit is $400, compared to $739 for each of the contents separately. That's a $339 savings! This kit is definitely a good deal! ”
