We've also used tractors, a rope slung over a branch or rafter and around a hitch on a truck, and so on. It's called "Redneck Ingenuity" and it has gotten us all out of a lot of jams. However, thanks to Cabela's and their Electronic Cable Hoists, life as a hunter just got a whole lot easier. We recently purchased a Cabela's Electronic Cable Hoist that's rated to lift 880 Ibs, and it works flawlessly. It's powered by a 110-volt system and it features 38-ft. of 9/64" steel wire cable, plus it has a built-in cable guide. It's operated with a 5-ft. hanging control handle that has a water-sealed power switch and the hoist itself comes with a stabilizing weight on the primary lift hook and a sheaved pulley lift hook. But here's the real kicker, this high-power, high end hoist is only priced at $159.99. For a multipurpose tool such as this, that can load and unload heavy awkward materials, lift mowers for blade sharpening, or just pick up your buddies for fun, that's an absolute steal.
