5 Stars Great for an Old Man

Jim from TX wrote (February 26, 2015):

The hoist is well built and very sturdy. It is just what the doctor ordered. I mean that literally. I missed most of last season because of a hernia. Had to have surgery and was able to get back into the field in late December. Doc said : Be Careful Out There.. The hoist worked perfectly. I recommend it 100%

5 Stars Makes a great gift!

Kevin & Betsy from FL wrote (January 19, 2015):

We purchased this hoist for our great neighbors that took us hunting on their farm in Illinois. After a couple of successful hunts, we found out real soon that a good way to thank them would be to get something to help them in loading and processing those big deer. They put it to use real soon and sent us pictures to show us how helpful it was!

Arrived quickly and worked great. Appears to be well built.

5 Stars Deer Hoist

Ben Cottle from TX wrote (January 15, 2015):

Because of my age, I could no longer lift a non-field dressed deer into my pickup. I had a home made battery operated lift, but it was hard to use in all situations. I bought this deer hoist and used it for the first time this season. I shot my buck in heavy brush, drug him some 15 yards to where I could get my pickup close to him, set up my hoist and wrenched him to my truck, lifted and swiveled him on to my tailgate, and drove to a more suitable area for field dressing. The deer had not been disconnected from the hoist, so I swiveled him off the tailgate and raised him high enough to field dress.. I then swiveled him into the bed of my truck for transporting out of the pasture. Because of the hoist I was able to do all this by myself with a minimal amount of effort. I recommended it to my daughter-in-law for my Son and she gave it to him for Christmas. For convenience, I leave my hoist partially assembled. So I bought a heavy duty over-sized duffle-bag (30"x50") to store and transport it in. My deer hunting extended because of the hoist.

5 Stars Well built and works great

Eddie from OK wrote (January 14, 2015):

I have already skinned and processed two Doe. Drove to the deer and hooked them up swung them around into the bed of the truck and drove to an area to field dress, skin and process. This is a very functional product not just for deer but any heavy item you need to move.

5 Stars Save your BACK!

Abe from TX wrote (January 14, 2015):

Love this hoist as it is necessary when you are hunting alone or just have a large animal to lift into the truck bed. I bought this one with the extended piece so that I could leave the tailgate down and lift AND swivel the deer into the bed. I keep it separated into 2 pieces for easy storage in the off season. I am 65 and hunt alone. This is a huge back saver! Had a friend help me assemble it and he ending up ordering one for his dad.

5 Stars Great Hoist

Dan from NJ wrote (January 14, 2015):

I was looking for something to help load deer into the back of my pickup after harvesting an extra heavy deer in November. I had to load it by myself and in doing so aggravated a previous shoulder and elbow injury. This hoist will be just the ticket for loading a deer into a pickup. It is in the back of my truck right now.

5 Stars great product

kevin from MS wrote (January 06, 2015):

It was packed very good assembly only took 20 minutes . Love the 360 degree swivel. Cant wait to use it.

4 Stars Works great

Don from WY wrote (January 04, 2015):

I have used my hoist for 2 hunting seasons and it works great. I use it for hanging whole (no gutting) mule deer and antelope so I can skin and process the animal in the field which allows me to continue hunting. I live in Wyoming it is not uncommon to be hours from asphalt roads. It also works great for loading large bull elk. Just cut the elk in half so it will clear the truck bed, lift and swing the animal into the truck. No manual lifting on a elk is a real plus especially when you are lifting dead weight.

5 Stars Will work way better than what I had...

Daniel from WY wrote (January 01, 2015):

This product was easy to assemble. Though I haven't used it yet, and probably won't until next hunting season, it will be far more useful than the homemade contraption I had been using. The 360 degree swivel is a big plus.

5 Stars Great product

Marcus from GA wrote (December 28, 2014):

Only took a few days to get here on Christmas Eve. Easy to assemble and worked great for getting my 5th wheel hitch out of my truck.

5 Stars Well made

Richard Day from IN wrote (December 25, 2014):

This lift is one of the sturdiest lifts I found. We use it for more than loading deer, it comes in handy most of the heavy lifting we need it for.

5 Stars good Hoist

John from NE wrote (December 09, 2014):

Bought this hoist in early October. Great buy, Works better then I thought it would. I am disabled and cant load a deer in the back of my truck by my self anymore. I have loaded skinned and deboned two deer with this hoist. Wish I HAD THIS HOIST 20 years ago. My friends who hunt all want one. One is asking his wife if he could have one for Christmas. Also it was shipped to my house in 2 days

5 Stars Awsome product

Dwayne from LA wrote (December 08, 2014):

Made like a great piece of hunting equipment. Looks and works great all the way from the packaging to the truck.

5 Stars I'm very, very impressed!

Doug from TX wrote (December 07, 2014):

I read the reviews before ordering mine and was satisfied that it would do the job I needed. It is very well constructed and high quality workmanship. The finish is smooth and it was packed really well when I got it. Mine came with instructions that were easy to follow and I had it together in a few minutes. It is so well made i have to agree with the one who said it would be hard to build it yourself for the price paid. I have a bad back and this hoist will save me from some tough lifting and make things so much easier not to mention saving time not having to look for a tree to rig my rope hoist into for skinning and quarreling a deer or hog. I will certainly be telling everyone about this swiveling hoist! What an awesome Christmas gift for a hunter!

5 Stars Great Hoist for the $

Tyler from ID wrote (December 05, 2014):

This hoist is excellent. I chose this hoist above others or rebuilding my own becuase the price was right and it had the features I wanted. It's adjustable height makes it higher than many I've seen and the weight capacity is a huge bonus for the larger mulies. I haven't used this with elk or moose, but I plan on hanging halves or quarters on this at least. The bottom support is a huge bonus and I'm sure if you strapped the top and cranked it towards the front of the truck for additional support, it could be enough to support an elk. The swivle action on this is great and I was impressed by the bearing structure that allows this. It took me about 15 minutes to put together and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow! Thanks for a great product.

4 Stars Very well built hoist

Jeremy from MS wrote (December 02, 2014):

This hoist is very well built. Made from heavy tubing and everything lines up perfectly. Very easy to assemble. Only thing that could be improved would be the quality of the winch. But for the price its a very good product.

Charles from TX wrote (November 26, 2014):

Hoist came on time and everything was packed in styrofoam inside of cardboard box. No damages and the instructions were clear and concise. I assembled the hoist in the living room floor before carrying it outside. I additionally purchased two bolt-on hitch receivers for my two utility trailers. Mounted them on the left rear area between the wheel and tailgate. Great for having trailer connected to vehicle and still able to use hoist to load items onto trailer. Each trailer hitch receiver assembly cost less than $20.

5 Stars Multipurpose

Richard from IN wrote (November 24, 2014):

Are primary reason for the purchase was for lifting deer to get in the truck bed. My husband and I are not able to lift as much anymore, we thought this would be useful for various application as well. Now that we have the hoist, which we received in 2 days of our order, we see that it is very capable of doing most of the lifting we will require of it.

5 Stars Fantastic

Brad Alexander from WA wrote (November 20, 2014):

The shipping for this product was exceptionally fast and when I took it out of the box it was very easy to assemble. I was impressed with the durability and simplicity of this product and I will definitely be recommending it to all of my friends. Aside from the product it's self the customer service that I received was exemplary. I am in canada and the customer service individual knew exactly how to handle my out of country order while at the same time maintaining a notably cheerful demeanor. This is a good company and it shows.

5 Stars AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Hal Reed from TX wrote (November 14, 2014):

let me explain first, I purchased this product for a TOTALLY different reason then hunting. I'm a disabled vet with knee, back, and other injuries that limit my mobility. I use a trail trailer, that requires a Generator that weighs 310 pounds (stupid over built honda). I use the game lift to raise the generator in and out of the bed to my truck so I can do this myself instead of waiting on three people to help lift the generator in and out. Purchased thru walmart.com, this is the best thing I've found next to 4wheeler ramps to get the genny in and out of the truck! I'm sure I'll be using this for hunting but for now, its a generator Hoist.

5 Stars Terrific Product

Scott from NC wrote (November 05, 2014):

Very nice product. I had plans of welding my own very similar to this design when I found it online with Discount Ramps after ordering another one of their products. This product is very substantial and strong. It could be used for lifting additional items other than just deer. Terrific service team and customer support. I will definitely buy from Discount Ramps again and they get my recommendation.

5 Stars WOW!!! Deluxe Is absolutly the operative word for this hoist.

Douglas W. from CA wrote (October 29, 2014):

This hoist has the looks, fit, finish and feel of a true deluxe item. I could see the conceptual forethought and planning that went in to the design and am very impressed. As a "do it your self" man, I thought about making one and I am so glad I didn't. With the high quality material they used in making this, along with the powder coating, It hurts me to say this, but " I don't see how I could have made it any better", not without exceeding the price of what it sells for, anyway... I am looking forward to using this for our up-coming Wyoming pronghorn antelope hunt, where a good tree to clean our game may be difficult to find. Furthermore, I have an F250 Superduty and the tailgate has plenty of clearance to be lowered and can be used as a table or raised for extra room while cleaning game. The Deluxe Hoist can be partly disassembled and stored in a truck bed tool box or you can lay it across the rear floor of a crew cab like I do. I will use this hoist mostly for deer and actionably for antelope, bear and pig. Stop your ho humming and buy with confidence, you and your hunting buddies will definitely be impressed with the quality and strength of this 360 hoist, I know I am...

Dewy from ND wrote (October 19, 2014):

As others have pointed out...a little disappointed in no instructions details or parts list for future reference. There is a nice one on the web but why not finish the sale and include it in the shipment. Somewhat damaged and scraped up during shipping but will work fine. A little disappointed in the type of roller bearing and seat (larger one), used for the rotation. I will be changing it out with a sealed bearing like the upper one is, my cost I suppose. Shipping was prompt!

Just received the deer hoist today and finished putting it together. It seems to be made well. Can't wait to use it this fall. It was pretty simple to put together, but it would have been nice to have instructions.

4 Stars Deluxe Deer Hoist

I am retired. I can't lift & maneuver heavy objects like I used from AR wrote (October 02, 2014):

The product appears to be well constructed & solid. The box was a bit battered up off the UPS truck. Upon opening, the product looked like it had been through an Oklahoma dust storm and after cleaning things up, I noticed quite a few minor scuff marks/scratches on the powder coated parts (not sure if this is the result of QC testing or what, but in any case it is cosmetic). There were no assembly instructions with the product, but a quick e-mail to "Contact Us" at Discount Ramps resulted in an electronic copy of the instructions within an hour. I am anxious to put it together and give it a try.

5 Stars Awesome product.

chris from LA wrote (September 24, 2014):

I like this product. It was very easy to assemble even though shipper destroyed the box losing the instructions. Picks up very easy so hunting by yourself is no longer a worry.

I bought this for getting my honda generator in and out of the back of my truck. At 144lbs it was just to much weight for my back. It works awesome. I'm even able to lift my kayaks on to the ladder racks. I would like to thank Kent for personally helping me get my order placed.

hoist is built better than I expected, heavy tube steel, angled supports, steel bearing assy for the swivel part, just what i wanted....only thing better would have been an instruction manual included..luckily its easy to assemble.
