No more do you have to incline the treestand at extreme angles to start. Simply attach the stand to the tree at or slightly above level and start climbing. As the tree begins to taper, simply adjust the cable to maintain your level. This enables the hunter to not be concerned about guessing at the right starting angle and stay level while ascending/descending the tree.  Most accidents happen while ascending/descending the tree because of the above or below level positions until you reach your desired height.  Through the use of our patented Geared Leveling Technology the Equalizer® Geared Leveling Treestand provides up to 12 inches of cable adjustment, providing for a change of 6" in tree diameter. No other adjustable treestand on the market can come even close. Also incorporated into the Equalizer Leveler is the patented Swift-Lok Cable Technology. This system provides for the Fastest, Easiest, and Safest connection of the cable to the treestand.

This Equalizer® Geared Leveling Treestand comes complete with the Adjustable Backrest  and 3-way movable Bench Seat to hunt facing tree, back to tree or standing lean post position.

Regular Equalizer w/back rest
Tony Herbers (Bay City, MI) 10/29/2017 11:06 AM
This is the 3rd equalizer that I own, they are the best tree stands on the market. And believe me I have owned them all. Their the best built, and grip the tree better then the rest on the market. When you attach the back rest to it, it makes it even better. Then with the leveling system you can level it as you go. Its just a great tree stand and I just can't think of another thing they can do to make it a better tree stand. Customer Service is great, I left a message and they contacted me at 9pm that night. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. Keep up the great work.
Still The Best

Own two of the original Big Shots that I still use. I was thrilled to see Buckshot Mfg. start up again offering the best climbing tree stands ever made. For us hunters who still scout, adapt and move to deer in the woods versus sitting in a shooting house looking over a green plot this is the best stand on the market. I just purchased the Equalizer with adjustable back rest. Fastest set up and being able to adjust the stand on the tree takes the guesswork out of the base set up on the tree. Can sit in this stand all day and evening. This stand is worth every penny for the hunter looking for a great climbing stand. Thanks Buckshot!

I personaly own own eight buckshot treestands - why ? - simple they are without a doubt the safest and most confortable treestand on the market today plus the fact that I regulary leave several treestands on public hunting lands from begining of season to end, here in Pa. it is sad to say but theft is a problem but with either two or four of Buckshots locks on my stands theft is not a problem (you would have to cut the tree down to get the stand and even then you would not be able to remove the locks) you can still climb the tree with locks inplace this is a great feature / I do tend to favor the Equalizer over other models just personal prefrence with the adjustable back rest it is like sitting a lounge chair 25 feet up (my prefered height) do not be fooled by imitations , I bought my first Buckshot treestand from Tom Graham Sr. many years ago and still to this day use that very stand , Barbara is now continueing with the safest and most comfortable treestand on the market today, your truly a very satisfifed costomer for many years both past and in the future : John A Angelisanti
