Thread: Tripod game hoist in UK?

  1. #1

    Tripod game hoist in UK?

    Hi All,

    I found this handy foldable tripod game hoist online, but these tripods only seem to be sold in the states.

    Kill Shot Tripod Game Hoist - 500 lb Capacity DRC-DTP | DiscountRamps.com


    Does anybody know where I can get one of these (or similar) in the UK?

    Thank you.

    I have one at home!

    It is made of two or three sections of aluminium tubing in each leg. Unfortunately I put it away when there must have been some dampness between the tubes, so now it can't be extended.

    Although better than nothing, the concept is not perfect. With an animal suspended the center of gravity is raised so that it doesn't take much downward pressure when skinning the beast to lift the opposite leg off the ground.

    If anyone knows of a way of freeing up the aluminium tubes I'd be interested to hear, as for the last few years it's just been taking up space in the garage.

    Turn upside down and pour lots of wd40 or similiar in. Let it soak for a few days. Try to release and if it doesn't Then do it again.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    Hi Willie,

    Where did you buy yours and what's the wall thickness of the tubes?
    I guessed that it's not an ideal solution, but it beats breaking the shed's roof by suspending heavy carcasses on the frame and pulling down on them

    Hot air gun on outer leg.

    I doubt you would get one made for anywhere near that money (50?). The winch alone would be 25 over here and the alloy tube will frighten you. Then you have the problem of it being lifting gear so should be rated at 2000kg (?) to lift 500kg.

    Don't you just love the UK and it's prices / rules

    I can't remember, and I'm in Germany at the moment so I can't check until I'm back home tomorrow. It was a specialist company in the US, so I'll have a look and post on here when I find out.

    Many thanks for the suggestions on how to free the tubing. I've tried the WD40 before but will give the hot air gun a go.

    Hi, I use this Napier Apex AutoClick
    Have used this on several occasions, not got an easy hoist on it but works if you can lift the carcass
