    I purchased a similar 4 wheel per pulley block model,block and tackle from this company ,
    but with 4 wheels in each pulley,sheave unlike this picture that shows two two wheel pulley sheaves, ,back in the 1970s from a hardware store in Colorado,
    Ive been looking to buy a second 4 wheel sheave one ever since,
    its packaging stated it was rated at 1000lbs
    does anyone know who currently sells these?
    I don,t see the company listed on line
    yes I pack it in and use it to lift ELK but the one I own is rated at 1000 lbs
    and while small its lifted dozens of large elk over the years
    yes theres lots of larger heavier 2 and three wheel per sheave pulley hoists listed,
    but this ones pocket size light weight high quality and has worked well for decades on dozens of elk.
    any suggestions on finding a duplicate?
    and yes the para cords only rated to about 300 lbs but with it having 4 redundant,
    multiple passes through the pulleys sheaves it lifts a heavy elk rather easily.

    as you get older and gain experience you appreciate the better tools available,
    and if you can get one of these they make lifting a large elk up off the ground to field dress it,
    with less potential for dirt in the meat a far easier proposition.

    your correct the lines rated at 300lbs , but theres 4-6 lengths supporting any weight
    and yes that linked lift looks real good, but it also looks a good deal larger and heavier

    If you can do without the hanger for the deer's legs then wouldn't this set be nearly the same? the rope is a poly fiber, unless you get something from China, I doubt you can find new cord with your needed load rating much if any thinner. If you get Mountain climbing gear you'll find small light weight set-ups, but you'll pay out your nose for it!

    It just occurred to me that Farm Supply has those lightweight double pullys and you can buy the rope separately at Bass Pro shops.

    while $85 for an elk hoist, seems high priced ,
    its a damn bargain and youll understand why ,
    once its used a few times

    yes there are cheaper options

    yes most of those would work, but ID bet the vast majority would be left out of any ones day pack due to the size and weight, issues,
    theres no doubt you pay $$ for the convenience of far lower weight and much small easily transported size,
    in the smaller high quality block & tackle, but I think the trade off is well worth the extra cost..... many may not share that outlook.
