The Henchman Lifting Harness takes up to 100% of the weight of heavy garden tools and can be used with pole saws, hedge cutters, strimmers and blowers. Using the harness significantly reduces back strain and arm fatigue, allowing you to work in greater safety as you retain more energy, concentration and control for the job in hand
The clever modular harness offers a pivot lock and is designed to accommodate various types of supports, from static to gas strut assisted. The design puts ergonomics first, with full customisability for different body types and comfortable materials for all-day use
