    Does a genie lift not operate with the pulley system at the bottom ? As i see it you would have to send the lift up then climb up to your 9m height unless you had a fed up mate who would do the cranking for you . ?

    Next question , why post this in classifieds ?

    Nice idea, but you will need to look at the weight distribution on that very carefully. You're potentially moving the centre of gravity of the unit massively.......and it ain't no Weeble..!!

    Yes thankyou. I'll take the L200. You could probably get something for the genie lift though so I will leave that with you.

    seriously though. By the time you have positioned something as bulky and noisy as a vehicle with a telescopic platform you might find there are more benefits to a quieter more concealable system. You would have to use it regularly to make it worthwhile and the more you use it the more the deer are going to catch on.

    Having used a Genie extensively at work I am convinced you will wound more deer than you will shoot cleanly due to the movement even at modest heights they sway like hell even if you don't think its moving you try and shoot a test target from one!

    without any outriggers that will probably just tip the vehicle over.
