No I sold that machine several years ago. It just rises when you turn the roller one way and rides along then falls when the teeth of the "gear" catch it and stops it turning backwards. Its on a hinge I made of a pin and some nuts.

You just roll the tail and a little bit of the back fur through the slot on the roller, then crank up the legs with the gambrel pulling off the hide. You'd have to lower the whole thing some and roll more hide then pull again a couple times on bigger critters. Same as this only mobile...

I'd guess I probably under charged him after the amount of work it turned out to be at $250.00

This one is a hide gate style so it holds the hide like one of those Chinese finger traps, the harder you pull the tighter it hangs on...
This one, very similar to the wall mount I designed, swivels up against the wall in the off-season...
One of my first receiver mounted machines, this one has skinned a pile of coyotes by now I'm sure knowing the guy that bought it...
Here's a horizontal machine in use ...
This was one of my first ever roller style machines from back probably 13-14 years ago ... I know it's being copied, even selling them! lol Flattering, too bad he won't give me any credit for the design.
