"I am impressed that a battery operated device can do what this one does. We found your product to be extremely useful and innovative.  We rigged a rappel/ascend setup off  the Jeremiah Morrow Bridge which carries Interstate 71 over the 200 ft deep Little Miami River Valley in Lebanon, Ohio. Everyone was comfortable with the safety and reliability of the device.  Ropes were easy to rig in the device.  “We got over 800 ft of ascending on a charge, battery life was good.  Universally, people said it was much easier to pull the trigger and ascend 200 ft than doing it the old fashioned manual way..” Mark E. Bernhardt, PE Director of Facility Inspection Burgess & Niple, Inc. PowerQuick recently teamed with Restech Norway to provide a new, top-of-the-line rope launcher to meet the needs of our customers.
