No more elbow grease!

Recommended Posts

Hung this bad boy up today. No more pulling a rope to hoist up deer. Rope and pulley worked great for years but we were all ready for something  easier. Picked it up at harbor freight for 99$. 440 pound capacity, should work great for deer. Although the first one i bought was faulty and i needed to exchange it.

I've got two set up in the butchering barn. They work great for the money and life is much easer when your pressing the button instead of pulling on the rope.

Are you using a gas pipe to hang it on?

Nice, I use a boat hand winch and a pulley attaches to an eye bolt in a 4x4,  but took the handle off and put a nut on it so I can use my impact drill.

Its just a piece of black iron 1 1/4 pipe i had laying around. It came with mounts to attach it to a track to slide it. The pipe fits inside it perfectly. So much easier than the wood deal i was going to build.

How long is the remote wire? I have a 14 foot high ceiling in the barn.

What happens if your deer or bear weighs more than 220 lbs, or am I not understanding what that stands for?

If I ever kill a deer that dresses out at 220 I'd happily pull that winch down on my head!

The remote cable isn’t too long. Maybe 5-6 foot

Well I don’t bear hunt , so no need to worry about a bear. I would be tickled to death it I shoot a 200 pound plus deer in my area.  I think 200 pound plus deer it would be 3 1/2 year , which in my area are hard to come by. :D

I installed a battery operated hoist a few years ago . Too often the rope pull pulleys would slip and it was a pain to use them . My oldest son thought it was a funny idea and then he installed a plug in electric hoist in his barn . We have skinned and cut up several deer using the hoist . 

Here is an old video that I made .I use a lawn mower battery for power .

i've got the same, it's not lazy it's smart. I've used it for a lot of other projects as well including hoisting up the lawn mower to clean the deck.

I was thinking the same, that if i use a 2kLb winch with pulley , I dont need a hoist and that will work with my high ceiling barn, plus I get the longer remote cable or even wireless now.

Thx
