Summit 180 Max SD: Climb in Comfort


Climbing stands give hunters the elevation and mobility they need to stay one step ahead of their game. However more often than not they are designed for function at the expense of comfort. Or if the stand is built larger, the added weight of the unit will cripple the hunter’s mobility.

Summit  has delivered the best of both worlds with its 180 Max SD climbing stand.

This model has additional space for larger hunters or those who crave added room without a significant increase in amount of stand weight. In fact this larger model only weighs 23 LBS, only 3 LBS more than Summits legendary Viper SD.

The 180 Max SD is designed for flexible positioning, and is equipped with an adjustable-height, reversible surround seat that allows you to sit facing the tree or reversed with the seat against the tree. The seat, backrest, and wrap around pads all come in Mossy Oak Breakup Infinity camouflage.  It also features precision welded aluminum, and an extended-top frame for taller hunters. Or if you’re concerned about weight restrictions the 180 Max SD is equipped with a 350-pound maximum weight capacity.

This climber also features Summit’s Dead Metal Sound Deadening SD Technology which is a system in which critical parts of the platform are filled with custom engineered expanding foam to reduce unintentional noises caused by movement on the platform. You will also benefit from Summits RapidClimb climbing stirrups and their QuickDraw Cable retention system which is one of the fastest/quietest cable attachment systems on the market. This system is also extremely flexible, allowing this stand to fit tree sizes from 8 to 20 inches in diameter.

The 180 Max SD Climbing Treestand includes a 4-point safety harness, all hardware, ropes, and straps as well as Summit’s Five Year Limited Warranty.

So if you’re in the market for a new climber and thinking a little extra room might come in handy for those long sits the Summit 180 Max SD should be on your short list.
