Michael,

I bought that same setup a couple years ago and it is a piece of garbage.  The ropes keep wanting to slip out of the cheap pulleys.  There's a metal gismo that flips up that is suppose to catch the rope so you don't have to keep a constant pull on the rope that doesn't work either.  Just my experience.

Pope at best it would only be a 1/2 of an Elk or quarters. And I would use it to get the meat clean and load it in the back of the truck.  :tongue:

My dad got one from cabelas, they work great. come along built on so you just crank the handle and lift it up.  come apart and packs away nice.  i think they are under 200.  he has used it with deer and elk and it swivels.  but he has a canopy so he never uses that, but you can still load the game very easily with only one guy.

Michael-  Cheesy photo but you get the jest.  Still not completed hey I got several more months till I need it...  Got a couple pulleys that will be added and a detachable come along to assist the lifting.  Also putting a bracket to hang a collapsible three gallong water jugs for those wash down needed times.  Best part it cost me just a couple dollars, pays to know a welding lawyer... :clap:
