Power Skinner

I have electric winch to pull hide from Coyote and Large Coon.
A friend uses a winch from a boat trailer (hand power) and works as good as e-winch.

Here's anchor point in cement floor (chain bolted to floor)


Tail and Flanks skun, Vice-Grips fasten to flanks (Vice-Grips have wide washer welded to each jaw for additional grip...


Going up...


Just about to the shoulders...


Legs ringed and pulled, we're down to ears no need for e-winch from this point

Re: Power Skinner

Thanks, 5ch.

Re: Power Skinner

Hern, I am like you,getting old and bad hands. I like your idea but don't quite understand how it works. I have a boat ratchet I want to use but where do I mount it? Is the boat ratchet cable hooked on the chain between the clamped coon and floor fastener? Or is the puller hooked direct to the chain and run thru a roller so it pulls straight down?

Re: Power Skinner

Nice job Hern, thanks for sharing.

I also built one of these for deer. Have a winch on both sides of skinnin shed. One side runs up to a shive mounted from ceiling and the other runs through a shive mounted on floor. One pulls the deer up while the other pulls the hide down and off. Works great.

Re: Power Skinner

ole beaver, Mount boat winch on sidewall pole (in pole shed). Run cable to highest point (thur pullys, or eyelets). Then cable is lowered to place where you want to skin. Place anchor in floor to hold hide (and vice-grips) in place. I welded chain to my vice-grips and welded washers to each jaw for larger grip.
Adjust above method to fit your needs.

Here's a link with a crank winch. Neat set up.
