Default I beam trolley/electric hoist Recommendations?

I'm wanting to set up an i beam, trolley, and electric hoist for hanging animals. I've got the basic concept and all, but I was hoping to get specific advice from someone who's actually installed one. Part of my issue is that I barely get deer all the way off the ground as it is in my cleaning shed, so I'm wanting to get a trolley/hoist combo that will be as compact as possible to give me that desired vertical space. So with that in mind, any recommendations on an I beam trolley and electric hoist combo that will satisfy my needs? I'd like to get one rated for about 1000# seeing as I occasionally am hanging bigger exotics.
Please feel free to be specific as possible. A lot of the ones I've looked up seem to be unnecessarily long.

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Yes, I've already done a search on TBH, and while there's a few discussions, I couldn't find any specific products mentioned.

We have a harbor freight 110v model on our beam trolley. The way its set up is a 2 part pull and the eye for your gambrel will be a pulley/hook. We use it with a eye bolt in the concrete to pull hide on big axis, hogs, whitetail with a hide clamp no issues. Cable is 5/16 diameter so it should have a 1000lb or so rating.

Thanks for the info! Do you happen to know what trolley you're using?

That video is similar to how I put ours together. I used one trolley and a piece of 8 channel to fit the winch but his way would be the easiest approach
