The equalizer has a crank on it so when you climb the tree and sometimes your stand is not level you can crank it up or down to level it out while you are in the tree so you don't have to get down and make an adjustment. I don't think the Timbertall does this does it?
yeah we sell those equilizers at targeteers.. they go for over 300 bucks tho... they are pretty nice but i noticed if you go on a tree TOO small the crank handles hit the stand on its side rails and you are unable to crank... i prefer a larger tree for cover anyway so it would work for me but sometimes you dont always have that option.... if you use a climber enough you should have no problem judging what angle to start off at so you end up level at the top. id save your money and just get a regular climber for half the cost..it will do just the same. other than that, if you have the extra money, the equilizer is very comfortable and hooks on the tree quickly and quietly..although its not a stand id like to carry very far, its pretty heavy and doesnt collapse flat like some others (ie: ol man)
I have the non-adjustable version of this stand call the Centershot. The stands are extremely solid and will grab onto any type of tree. The main downside to this stand is the lack of support from the company. Parts/accessories are extremely hard to get as most companies do not sell this brand and the company is less than stellar at customer service.
my name is Jay, i worked there for the past year but now i just show up on sundays to show the guys my finished projects from taxidermy school. they look foward to seeing my stuff each week. i probably know you...
alright, i bought the equalizer treestand. It weighs 20 lbs. and is very well made. I used it for shotgun season and it is very comfortable, easy to pack, and climbs trees higher than I have ever been before. It has these binder straps on the sides that lock the stand together up in the tree and you feel very secure. It comes with a full body harness and very comfortable backpack straps. I think it was well worth the money, I guess I'll be selling my timbertall stand soon.
