The Portable Runner easily stands up to the punishment of heavy duty firearms training. With variable speed control, electric braking, and increased speed and responsiveness, it's an excellent tool for use in tactical combat scenarios, charging drills, defensive driving training, and other dynamic training applications. A steel cable runs horizontally between a pair of 2x4 studs that are secured to the ground with stakes and steel cable tie-downs. Using steel cables instead of rope or nylon straps keeps everything tight and prevents sagging or stretching.
The motor is attached to the top of one of the 2x4 studs, and pulls a rolling trolley along the horizontal steel cable. Targets are attached to the trolley, and a simple hand-held controller gives you precise control over the direction of the target.
The Portable Runner has an 80-foot maximum span, so you will have plenty of room for lateral threat movement drills and even charging drills where the target rushes directly at you. The entire training experience can be dramatically elevated by using our reactive 3D cardboard targets that only fall when hit in the right spot.
You also have the choice of a 15', 100', or 330' cable to allow for training at close and long ranges.
The Portable Runner operates on 120-volt AC power, and the unit can be plugged directly into a standard electrical outlet. A portable generator may also be used in more remote locations. Because the Portable Runner is built with strength in mind, it is a great choice for applications using larger and heavier targets or longer runs.
