Inventor's Notes

"My ultimate goal for the invention is to see it on the market so others can benefit from it. My project will prevent back strains and help those with physical conditions. This patent was inspired from my elderly parents who love to hunt. Because of their age they were unable to lift the wild game onto the ATV for transporting. The ATV PowerLift has allowed them to continue to enjoy their love of a sport for years to come."
