Sherrill Big Shot Launcher Head
Sherrill Big Shot Rope Launcher Catapult Head – The catapult ‘head section’ of the Sherrill Tree Big Shot. The Big Shot makes quick work of getting a working line into position and helps get you get onto the job at hand. Used to launch a throw weight (with line attached) over a tree’s branch to tow working lines into position.
The SHERRILL BIG SHOT is a professionally engineered catapult mounted into a utility-grade fibreglass extension pole, creating a 2.5 metre long launcher that can launch a throw bag and trace line over 45 metres into the air.
While hand-throwing straight up is nearly impossible… or at best, requires a great deal of practice, the Big Shot allows operators to launch nearly straight up into the tallest canopies, avoiding adjacent brush and limbs. Other mechanical launchers using gunpowder or pressurized gas have limited ability to control distance, leading to grossly over-fired shots. With just a little practice, you’ll be able to toss a weight high or low with near pinpoint accuracy. For peak performance, don’t use the Big Shot with total pole length less than 8 feet.
